Once Upon a Time...

....I saw a guy at my church with really blue eyes and big dimples and I decided we should date. Five years later, we got married. True story.

We do.

Awwww... haha, Matt's shadow is like The Hulk.

Randomly stopped by my work to get a shot with 'my' truck. Nerdy but I kinda like it.

The bridesmaids with their unintentionally matching dresses. More on that here.

Had to include this picture because nephew, 'A', would not stop wailing in the picture. So, we cropped in on us and the tearful child (sorry, 'L', you got cut buddy... you needed to cry for the picture) and made this our thank-you card. We wrote across the picture 'Hope you had a better time than 'A''. Some people did not see this writing and wondered why we sent out a thank-you card with a crying child.... Our sense of humour is so advanced...

Told you he had dimples.

P.S. Thanks to Linda for suggesting a wedding pic post. I've been working and in sweats these last days, so the timing is great...
P.P.S. I don't know why the picture quality is low, our printed pics look fine and I'm tooo tiiirred to figure it out now.
P.P.P.S. Linda's getting married in 4 days!!!!

Lovely post, so nice to see your wedding pictures and hear a bit more about you and your husband. The crying child card idea - genius!

Your dress is absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could see the detailing on the top better but even so, I'm in love with it. Where did you find it?

Thanks for a glimpse at your wedding day and dress - you both looked smashing! S.

What a great post! I love how you did the bridesmaid's dresses-- it looks beautiful and so much less stress than usual bridesmaid dress coordinating!

Awww, you guys look so cute! Love the straps of your dress and I like how the bridesmaids all wore something different. How long have you been married?

Congratulations! Wow! You two are a gorgeous couple! Love the crying nephew thank-you card. That is SO hilarious.

And I'm laughing over your story about meeting your husband, because once upon a time, I met a guy on the street with gorgeous green eyes and big dimples and decided WE should date...and four years later, WE got married! Seriously, true story!

Hey! Hi! I just found you from academichic, and I love your style and your blog. (And I've always thought Canada was pretty cool.) I'm also fascinated by your hair with the braids and the low updos and what not. And this is a lovely wedding post.

The graphics on our trucks actually looks pretty sweet in the picture.

Christen said...

These are beautiful and your dress is beautiful :)
And your "how you fell in love" story totally made me laugh.

And thank you for the encouragement and smoothie idea. It's so good to know I'm not the only one having a hard time with this. Reading everyone's great comments really made me want to succeed that much more!
