The day was gorgeous! We had temperatures in the mid to upper 60's. We could not have asked for better weather in early November. We felt like the day would never get there. Looking back it all went by really fast.
We had been through so much leading up to our wedding day. We felt like everything was against us at each turn. We had been victims of fraud and our savings was gone. We had talked about calling off the wedding of our dreams. But with the help of family we were able to pick ourselves up and have the wedding we both dreamed of.
We wanted to get married at the museum because both of his parents had worked there. They had both passed away before our wedding day. The museum was their place of employment prior to their passing. So we felt getting married here would kind of like having them with us. Besides, we both just love the museum!
I just want to squeeze those cheeks on Hannah! They all were excited for our wedding. It was not only the day Matt and I became man and wife but the day we became a family. The best day of our lives!
My parents sang in our wedding. I just loved that. We had a very small and intimate wedding. Just perfect! As we were saying our vows to each other a ray of sunshine came through the window in the front. It was beautiful!
I love how our photographer captured my face. I am just as much in love with this man as I was at this very moment.
The minister actually forgot to say, "You may now kiss the bride". But we made sure it got done. Haha.
The whole wedding party. My brother and his wife, my sister and her husband were our matron of honor and best man. Matt's niece and nephew along with my children were also in the wedding.
My paternal Grandparents and my Great-Grandmother who has since passed away. I got my love of all things German from her. I would love to go visit her when we still lived on the farm. Occasionally, she would even speak German. I think that is one reason I love the Amish so much is because of their German roots.
My maternal Grandparents. I just adore them! My grandfather has since passed away and my grandmother has dementia. I love all things Scottish because of them. When I was looking through the pictures for this post I noticed my grandfather's tie matched my grandmother's dress and coat. I certainly do miss my grandfather.
Us with my parents. They are the best parents in the world. I could not have asked for better parents.
We had our reception at the local fire department. We prepared all of the food ourselves and had cupcakes. We had a perfect day! One that I will remember always. I am so blessed to walk through this life with Matt. We were created for each other.
