March 28th 2009 was the day we officially became a family.
We got married at our church, Fellowship of the Woodlands in a glass chapel that was absolutely breath taking
We were able to get ready at the church
Ava was there every step of the way
I needed my dress super tight
My mother in-law helping with my veil
Kellie always looking out for Cody, my breathe was fresh
While the ladies finished getting ready, the boys were done & able to take some photos pre-wedding
The ceremony its self was very traditional. I walked down with both my parents on either side
to a Spanish acoustic guitar played by Justin Pena
where I met with Cody, who was indeed crying
and our 6 bridesmaids, Susan, Melissa, Monique, Kara, Kellie, & Stephanie
and 6 groomsmen, Patrick, Lance, Kevin, Derick, Phillip, & Jay stood
Our 3 nieces, Ava, Venicia, and Brianna lead the way throwing flower petals, all oh so adorable,
and Ava making sure my dress was perfectly straight the entire time.
yet when the garter that followed was thrown they all stood there staring in disgust.
Then it was time to cut the cake, the best part. We drew up a design which our caterers did a fantastic job executing
along with Cody's groom's cake, which was a welding machine
We had our cutter made, which we think is special
and then it was time for the grand exit which we did to sparklers
which made for great photos which were taken by our phenomenal photographers Marianna & Kelly Monaghan with Mia Bella Photography
And we're still living Happily Everafter....
