Favorite Wedding Moments

So y'all know how much I love Miss Alyx
and yesterday she put up a really cute post about her wedding ;)

And it got me thinking that I wanted to post about mine ;)
I haven't really posted much about it,
except that it happened hahahaha

I wanted to share some favorite things from that day
so here goes!

1. This was my face as we walked out of the temple

Oh yeah, THAT was the face I wanted captured hahahaha
I can't even remember what happened to make me 
make that face at all of my family and friends outside 

2. Having all of out family there
(minus my brother serving a mission but he was there in spirit)

3. That it rained on our wedding day

You know that Alanis Morrisette song "Ironic"?
Yeah Andrew and I always said we wanted rain on our wedding day ;)
And we got it!
AND a rainbow but I have no proof of it hahahaha

4. Having the best bridesmaids and groomsmen!

And letting the girls pick their dresses!
I didn't want to be one of those brides that makes her girls wear yucky crap ;)

5. Embarrassing my little bro all day long!

This pretty much sums up the day for him hahahaha

6. Having the best MOH ever ;)

Yeah she even did my make up for me ;)
She helped me feel calm and excited and helped me get ready
and in and out of my crazy dress!

7. My Daddy/Daughter dance ;)

We danced to "Return to Pooh Corner" by Kenny Loggins
and we both got misty-eyed ;)
I'm still my daddy's girl ;)
And I plan on singing that song to all my kids

8. Having an outside reception

 This was the dance floor,
there were tables and chairs under canopies,
candles in the pool,
and a gazebo with flowers in it all lit up for us to stand under
(but the pictures look terrible of it so I won't show you)

9. Our first dance

It took us about 5 songs into a playlist I had made of possibilities
to figure out our song ;)
We listened to 
"Your Eyes"
"Best Thing You Never Knew I Needed"
and another one that I can't remember
"Don't Know Much" by Linda Ronstadt came up on my iPod
and we knew THAT was our song ;)
We sang it to each other as we danced around
(and by danced I mean more like a penguin waddle with an occasional spin,
and ending with a surprise dipping of me)

10. My favorite moment was one I wasn't even there for

And yes, it has to do with Taco Bell ;)
After we got married,
I went back into the temple to change out of my dress
and Andrew went to Taco Bell to get us some food cuz neither of us had eaten
(our ceremony was at 1:30, so we were STARVED).
So while Andrew's in the drive-thru in his tux BTW,
his dad calls him for something
and Andrew goes "Hang on Dad. 
to the TB lady Yeah I'd like a 7 layer burrito and 2 Chalupas..."
and his dad burst out laughing
so now he is the source of many many family jokes ;)

Anyone else have fun crazy or favorite moments of their wedding??
Share them with me! ;)


  1. We had Taco Bell on our wedding day too! After the reception I was starved do we went there! Ha ha

  2. Bahaha! Love that story about Taco Bell! :) I'd relive my wedding in a moment too. Such a happy day!
