Our wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect. It was EXACTLY what I would have wanted and I could not be happier with how it turned out!! We invited the members of our small church to join us for the day at our friend Skeeter's cabin in Lake Tahoe.
Sunday morning our church service was conducted at the cabin. After church, my mom and other members of our church had prepared a delicious picnic themed lunch. We chowed down on pulled pork, coleslaw, Caesar salad, macaroni casserole, sugar cookies and pie... tasty!

When lunch was finished, people hung out, hiked and played music while the bride and groom got ready. Bekka did my hair and makeup, and I love how it turned out!

At five pm, the ceremony was conducted by my dad. Although there were a few hitches, it was beautiful. Daniel looked unbelievably handsome and I wasn't nervous in the least. All the members of my family participated in the ceremony in some way. My mom played the hymns on her violin, my sister was in charge of helping with hymns, Dalton said a prayer, and Justin and Colton played a guitar solo. It was very special to me that they were all part of the day. Afterward, we had cheesecake for our cake reception.

Besides my mom, wonderful members of our church (thank you Shirley and Carolyn!) did the decorations and flowers. I can't believe how beautiful everything looked. And a very generous and talented member of our church, Lis, took our photos. All in all, I feel very blessed at the tremendous amount of support we received. It was the BEST day. I am so very thankful to be married to such a wonderful man.

P.S. Sorry for an overload of pictures! I wanted to share our special day with those who weren't able to come. All the photos are done by the lovely and talented Melissa Dondero!
