Show Us Your Life- Wedding Party

This week we are showing off our wedding party. Tom and I were married at our church, Wilshire Baptist Church. Our minister, Pastor Mark Wingfield was really special to us because we were his first wedding and Tom was his first baptism. One day, I hope for Pastor Wingfield to participate in our baby's dedication! Anyway, I had a very unconventional wedding party as I opted to not have equal numbers of bridesmaids and groomsmen. I wanted to include all of my friends from different times in my life. I had my best childhood friend- Wendy, my college friends- Katie and Heather, my grown up friend- Amanda and my lifelong friends, my Aunt Jan (who was also my matron of honor) and her children, Chandler and Halee. I can't forget my neice Makayla as the best little flower girl! We had a great time together and it was a dream for me to have all of my friends together finally!
My bridesmaids all wore dresses of their choice in pink and we all carried hand tied bouquets of pink roses!

Tom's groomsmen were his best college friends, Mike, Glenn and Tim! They were great and made all of us girls laugh the whole night!
My favorite part of my wedding was that I had my favorite uncle walk me down the aisle. I thought of my daddy the entire walk and I carried a red rose in his honor and lit a candle at the alter in his memory. Uncle Hal did a great job of escorting me and I'm so glad that I had him by my side!

Okay so actually I had the entire Horton family in my wedding! I love them all! Chandler and Halee are like my little sisters, Aunt Jan is the perfect aunt and best friend and well, there are no words to describe how wonderful my Uncle Hal is!
And finally, the happy couple!

I love the fact that you can see my pink boots in this shot!

Well, come back next week for pictures and details on the reception!
Actually I will probably post those Tuesday since we will be in Hawaii next Friday!
