Two years ago Jared and I woke up before the crack of dawn–so that we could get married at the crack of dawn. Yes, we were married at 6am. There were several reasons for doing this.
- I am a morning person and I love mornings… (but, Jared–not so much).
- We wanted to get married outdoors in July… Yes, it gets hot and humid in Missouri.
- We wanted a small wedding… but we didn’t want to “not invite” our friends and family (yes, we were hoping 6am would scare people away!).
- We wanted to be able to enjoy our time after the wedding… and if we had an evening wedding–who knows what time it would get over!
I’ve never taken the time to post any of our wedding photos! Our neighbors, Donna and Riley of Roice Freelance Photography, and their friend Russell Hoover photographed our wedding, and I’m excited about finally posting these pictures!
We got married on my family’s ranch. I lived there until this day two years ago, and I can’t imagine getting married anywhere else.
Our nieces and my two little sisters were our flower girls!
We were blessed that so many of our friends and family showed up that early in the morning for our special day! We couldn’t have asked for a better crowd of witnesses.
Our nephew didn’t quite feel up to “ring bearer” duties that day!
I wasn’t planning on having a reception until my amazing grandma decided to cook breakfast for 200 people!
We are celebrating our two year anniversary in Busan this weekend, so stay tuned for that and another post on our trip to Seoul last weekend!
