Before and after the ceremony was strictly for taking pictures and getting those done before we lost light. I must say that it was so awesome to have a smaller wedding party because it was really easy to get the pictures finished quickly while still making sure we got amazing shots.
Picking our wedding party from the very beginning was simple, there was really no questioning it. These are the people that hands down are always going to be there to support and love us.
The relationship that Joe has with my family is more than I could ever ask for. He treats my sisters as his own sisters and my mom as his own. It’s always been a girls club growing up with my mom and sisters, so when they took Joe in and loved him like family I knew that he was the one.
The boys looked so handsome! I was very adamant about these tux’s, those colors, and the boutonnieres, so seeing everything put together on them was amazing.
My mom is my best friend. I knew that she had to play a major roll in this wedding. She means the world to both Joe and I, and she had to be honored in some way. Walking me down the aisle and giving me away was the perfect way to incorporate my mom into the wedding ceremony. Without her, our wedding would not have been possible at all.
After all of the pictures, it was time to make our way into the reception as husband and wife – follow along next Wednesday.
