Here Comes The Bride…Finally

I have not posted in a little over a week. I’m so sorry, but I promise I am about to make it up to you. The reason I have not posted is because I was getting ready for my wedding. If you are thinking I thought you were already married. You are right. I got married August 9th, 2018. I did not have a wedding though, and I got married in my work uniform. It was also just me, my husband, and a preacher. We did things the way we did it because my in-laws were not approving of me at the time, and were not on board with us getting married. Devon and I decided that on that day we wanted who ever was there to be happy for us, and if they were not they didn’t need to be there. Fast Forward 1 Year I won’t tell you things are perfect, but they are getting there. The family is slowly coming around and have accepted the fact that Devon and I are together, and will be together. We decided it would be a fun thing to do to have an actual wedding ceremony with family and friends in attendance. On July 6th, we did just that.

The Whole Family…little blurry sorry
I pulled out all the stops. I got a gorgeous wedding dress for 68 dollars from Goodwill. I stayed at my best friend slash maid of honors house the nightr before, and didn’t see my husband till four oclock the next day. I even got my eyebrows waxed! Shannon and I woke upuo  her mom steamed my dress and did my hiar. Theb we headed off to the mexican resturant in town for lunch with my dad and mom. My dad surprised me by having my grandfather there. I did not even know he was coming, but Devon did. He kept the secret all day. Of course I almost cried in the mexican restarunt cause I was surprised, and had not seem my grandpa since my 18th birthday.

We ate lunch and then headed to Wax and Wane for my eyebrow appointment. After the appointment we headed to my in-laws where we were holding the ceremony and reception. I got ready upstairs, and when the time came my father, who drove all the way from West Virginia walked me down the aisle, and put my hand in Devon’s. We said our own vows, and kissed in front of everyone this time After we walked back up the aisle we danced to Angel, by Casting Crowns. I danced with my  father to Ready Set Don’t Go by Billy Ray Cyrus. Devon and his mom danced to My Wish. by Rascal Flatts. We took pictures and I changed into a cooler dress because it is too hot in July in Savananh. We all sat down to eat a low country boil, and have brownies and fruit. After that we all hung out my dad, grandfather, and father in law played guitar, drums, and sang. When it was time to leave we noticed our car was vandalized by Jessica and Lexi with Honk we just got hitched 🙂 It is still on the windows a week later. It was the best day of my life.
