Best Day Ever

I don't have much to say on the matter. The photos speak for themselves. This was the best day of our lives. I may feel obligated to comment on some of them. :)

I was a nervous wreck, but my girlfriends kept me in check. They helped me get ready. And my god, it took a village.

The grandpa and dad first look made it super real, and although I definitely didn't think I would cry the entire day, WATER WORKS. It's time. Note* My dad and I both have the same ugly cry face. This cracks me up.

It was a beautiful day. May 13th. The forecast called for rain until the day before. Not a drop in site.

We did it! With The Pretenders "500 Miles" playing. HIMYM. Forever. I can't tell if Kate is leaning on Kaitlin like "awwww" or if they're making fun of something. Either way, I love it. Chad with the woo face.

There's literally not a single photo where every guy is just normal and smiling. This is as good as it gets. And I kind of like it that way. Baha

A few reception details. Mike works for Crosley (the record player company) and we collect vinyl so a record guestbook was a must.

All of the guys and my step-mom set EVERYTHING up without me. They did a killer job. It was exactly what I wanted.

We literally ran out of liquor. Probably because our bar was so cute and we had the best wedding bartenders IMAGINABLE.

So, like I said. Far and away the best day ever. These lovely photos, except the very last one, were all done by our wonderful friend Tommy (750fourproductions.com) and I mostly edited them so don't hold that against him. Heh. I HAVE NO PATIENCE. And Mike has been busy.

I wouldn't change a thing. Except maybe more donuts and mac and cheese. :)
