Throw-back Thursday/Share Your Wedding Details

Today I'm hosting my usual "Throw-back Thursday" Link-up and combining it with Holly and Melanie's "Share Your Wedding Details" Link-up. I hope you'll all join us!!




 The questions are:

1.) Location: We got married in the church that we attend. Its actually where we met, so the location had some sentimental value as well.

2.) Colors: We had a beach themed wedding here in St. Louis because I really wanted to get married on the beach, but knew that so many of our close friends and family wouldn't be able to come. Our colors were aqua with a touch of pink in the flowers. The girls carried orchid leis down the aisle and then wore their leis after the ceremony and the guys wore orchid boutineers.


3.) Bridal Party: Our Bridal Party consisted of Jake's 2 brothers, Pat and Larry, as his "Best Men", my sister was my Matron of Honor and my close friend Carley was my Maid of Honor. My 2 cousins, Travis and Tyler, were groomsmen and Jake's nephew Brandon was a Junior Groomsman. My 2 cousins, Megan and Danielle, were bridesmaids and my cousin Lauren was a junior bridesmaid. We also had Jake's nieces as our flower girls.

4.) First Dance Song: The song for our first dance was Can't Take my Eyes off of You which is "Our Song". It became our song after watching 10 Things I Hate About You and Jake singing the song to me all the time. ♥

5.) Honeymoon: As a wedding present, Jake's Dad gave us a trip to Maui, Hawaii for our honeymoon. We were able to work with his travel agent and plan the trip before the wedding. It was such a beautiful and wonderful trip. I would love to be able to go back someday.

6.) What would you do differently: There are a couple things I would do differently. The main one is that I wouldn't have been so accommodating to others (family) on OUR special day. I also would have hired a better photographer. Ours was more "old school" and didn't do as good of a job as I would have liked.
