Best Day Ever: Part 1

Best Day Ever

December 31st, 2014

The day we became husband and wife.

Where do I even begin?! Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to get married. But I never had a specific idea in my head of what I wanted my wedding to look like. I do know that I didn't ever see myself having a huge, over the top wedding. Even though growing up I was the ultimate girly girl and now I enjoy the finer things in life. But that's not how I wanted my wedding to be. I wanted to be surrounded by close family and friends, so Caleb and I decided that we would have a small wedding. We cut our guest list down to strictly family and our closest friends. And I don't regret it at all. I remember every single person who was there. Yes, the day seemed like a blur, but I remember almost every moment of the day. Which I'll say over and over again of just how amazing it was. Everyone who gets married always says their wedding was the best (which they should!) but our wedding was the best and I wouldn't have changed a thing. 

We had an amazing photographer that captured all of the details of the day. People always say they regret not hiring a photographer, and I'm so glad that she was available at the last minute. And captured our day. Check out Lauren Elizabeth Photography, she has some pictures of the wedding up on her site too.  We have so many wedding pictures that I could post them all, but I won't. I'll post a handful (or two!) 

Throughout the whole wedding planning process, I kept most of the details a secret. I didn't want people to know what we had planned, but more importantly I didn't want people coming to our wedding looking for a certain theme. I'm so over "themed" weddings. Which I'll do a whole other post on that topic..so sit tight! 

In the meantime, here's a glimpse into one of the best days of my life...

My handsome husband!

His wedding band with my bracelet

I loved my dress so much

Caleb and I decided to write our own vows. Best decision ever.
So I got keepsake books to keep them in

Instead of bouquets, my bridesmaids carried lanterns

Some of my girls getting ready

My amazing group of girls, they all have always been there for me and I couldn't have imagined my day without them. 

Our little Hemmi wanted to be a part of the pictures. 

I had to do a first look with my dad. I'm such a daddy's girl and wanted this moment captured. 

The moment he saw me *insert happy tears*

First kiss as HUSBAND and WIFE!!!
