Our wedding was beautiful! The ceremony went great. I thought I would be so nervous, but since Mike and I saw each other before the ceremony in order to get all of the pictures done, I was so calm! It helped so much to be able to talk with him before everything got started!

I loved everything from our flowers to the brown tuxes, to how much fun the wedding party had! Our reception was amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything better! We had so much fun and I can't say enough how much fun I had with our wedding party!! I'm pretty sure we had the best.

We also had a lot of fun with our first dance!! We started out slow dancing to Michael Buble's "Everything", but in the middle of the song, our wedding party gathered around us and when the music scratched and cut out - Soulja Boy's "Superman" came on and we all broke into that dance! Then the music cut out again and we went back to slow dancing! It was hilarious and so much fun! It just set a great tone for our reception. We wanted the ceremony to be about us- Mike and I. And the reception to be about our friends and family. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Here's a few pictures of us dancing..
Here's the video of our first dance too! It's not the whole thing, but it definitely gives you an idea!

I also appreciated my bridesmaids so much for how well they did with our flower girl! Not only did I have the best wedding party ever, we had the cutest flower girl ever!! Kelsi was so much fun. Here's a few pictures of her:

7 Days...

One week til the big day! Everything is pretty much done except for the dreaded chore of packing up my room! I need to take all of my stuff to Merrillville next week and I still have so much to pack. I think it's been so hard for me to get movivated because I have no clue where I'm going to put it all in the apartment!! But it will have to get done, luckily Trina gets here tomorrow so I'll have plenty of help :) (thanks trin).

Tomorrow night is my bachelorette party! I'm so excited and so grateful to two of my bridesmaids for doing this for me! They have put alot of work into it already, and I'm excited to see what they have up their sleeves! We're doing things a little bit different, because at the end of the night we're going to meet up with Mike and his friends (he's having his bachelor party tomorrow night as well) so that all of my bridesmaids can get to know his groomsmen before the wedding. I'm kinda wierd and want them all to be friends before the wedding!! :) So that will be a good time to get to know each other. Plus I haven't met his best man yet, so I'm eager to meet him!

Have a great weekend!
