Wedding Recap: Rehearsal

i thought it would be fun to finally blog about the wedding since i havent been blogging about anything else lately (obviously). hope you enjoy the little series.

Wedding Rehearsal:
Our wedding took place at the church i grew up in. So the night before the wedding me, jamie, the parents, the grandparents and the wedding party met up at the church to rehearse what was going on the next day.

For my wedding party, i had my sister, as my matron of honor, my good friend kim, my good friend addie, my future sister in law chelsey, and my future cousin in law tiffany.

tiffany, chelsey, me, addie, deidre (my sister) and kim (from my bridal shower)

 jamie had his dad, as his best man, his good friend dustin, his good friend scott, my brother than, and his cousin chad.

after we all figured out when to walk and how to walk, the ceremony run thru took place. my good friend heather practiced reading the readings we had picked out. we practiced our vows "unlawfully" to each other. one thing we didnt practice was the kiss. it was a surprise for the next day at the real thing.

after practice we signed the marriage license.

then it was time to eat!

Rehearsal Dinner:

we had our dinner in the church hall and my in laws had it catered with some yummy home style cooked food from a local caterer we like to use. we had brisket, chicken, dressing, green beans, corn, rolls, cobbler and banana pudding. it was so good!

after everyone was good and full,  we gave our "thank you" speech and passed out the presents we had gotten for the wedding party and parents.

jamie got his guys personalized beer mugs. wish i had a picture of them.

and i got mine flip flops for the reception that i embellished, and jewelry (in black) to wear with their dresses.

we all continued to talk with family about the day ahead until everyone began to leave. before i knew it, it was time for us to part ways until the wedding the next day. i was staying at my moms that night.
