I would say that my biggest life event since last blogging has been my name change, and my marriage that went along with it.
A little over a year ago, on April 26, 2014 Geoffrey and I got married at the Little Brown Church on Signal Mountain. I would say it was one of the prettiest days that I can remember in all my life. Maybe I'm biased. But, the weather was very important, because we got married in a church that only fit about 120 people inside, and the remaining 100 people had to sit outside. And our reception was under a white tent in my parents front yard, so rain would have been a bummer.

As a side note, I really enjoyed the first look before the ceremony and I would recommend it to anyone on the fence about this. We both felt a lot calmer after that, and we both enjoyed talking for a few quiet minutes.
We were married by Geoffrey's youth pastor and the same guy that he worked under for a couple of years when he interned as summer youth intern at his church. He did a wonderful job, and that reminds me that I want to watch the video that we have of the service.
Our reception was in my parents' front yard under a white tent. My parents had the yard looking incredible, and the weather was perfect for it. Thinking back to it, I really was never nervous that the weather wouldn't be perfect.
Here are a few pictures from the day...

|I wore my grandmother's and my mother's wedding dress. |
It was all the same as when they wore it,
except that we took off the lace sleeves because they were damaged.
|We wouldn't have had the wedding without my mom's help!!|
|My Granddaddy has Alzheimer's, but he was so happy and good that day - such a blessing.|
|My sweet flower girls|
|Right after we were married, and we were so happy!!!|
|If we had actually tried to do a serious face, it would have never turned out like this.|
Next, I want to give an update on our house! Hopefully it won't be another four years before I post again!
