Miss to Mrs: The Party

Northwest Forest 
Settlement House

Sign our guest book, if you would. ;)

Of course our wedding party entered with a bang...
 Black Eyed Peas "I Got A Feelin'"
(aka LONGEST song EVER when you jump around to the entire thing)

 We shared our first dance to "Unconditional" by the one and only, George.

Beau did the infamous first dance dip.

We ate cake.

...and more cake.

We cheersed.

We packed all the necessities in my boots...

I danced with my baby brother to "My Wish".

We cried.

...a lot.

We thanked our friends and family for coming.

We cheersed some more...

...and some more...

We tossed the garter and bouquet.

And finally it was time to party...

...and that's exactly what we did. All. Night. Long.

We sang our little hearts out.

We air-guitared.

We even pretended to be Jewish.

 And before we knew it, it was time for our private dance.

Mark Wills: "I Do"
 (Hands down, best part of the night) :)

We kissed.

A lot.

We had one last big hug.

...And it was time to go!

We marched through bubbles and handed out a couple high fives.

We hopped in the back of the Chevy...

...aaaaannd we were married!

To say this was the best day of my life (so cliche, I know), is an absolute understatement. I'll never forget waking up the next morning, looking at each other and agreeing that it could not have been any more perfect. :)

And that was exactly 6 months ago to-day!! 
(Gah-I can't believe that!)

Happy 1/2 year anniversary, Beau! I LOVES you!!

Well, if this hasn't been enough wedding talk for you, hop on over to The Vintage Apple, where I'll be guest posting on my 3 favorite parts about our wedding. She's off on her honeymoon being a blissful newlywed so someone's gotta cover for her. ;)

  20. Awww! Happy 6 months! You two are absolutely perfect for each other, as seen in all of these photos. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Happy 6 month anniversary! I loved your pictures, and think the idea of private dance is so cool!!! You looked so beautiful and both of you look so happy!

  22. OH! I love this! The private last song is such a cute idea! We did Sweet Caroline for our last song, and everyone circled around Jake and I and we all belted it out! :)

  23. I swore I commented on this?? well that last dance idea where it is just the two of you is AMAZING. Like that seriously is like the best thing ever. SO sweet. You two really seem to really not just love each other, but really LIKE each other.

    so not sure my hubs and I could have done that last private dance. See, we ........... love each other............for the most part..........and I try really hard to like him..........so not sure how that last dance would have gone for us.

  24. Aww happy 1/2 yr anniversary! Love the pictures!! The private last song is such a cute idea!!

  25. LOVE all of your reception pictures! :)
