Show Us Your Life: Wedding Party, Flowers, and Ceremony

Kelly, over at Kelly's Korner hosts a feature every Friday for bloggers. Originally, her feature was "Show Us Where You Live", however, it has been updated to "Show Us Your Life" as we ran out of rooms in our home. I am saddened that my blog missed all the fun home tours, especially with my obsession of home decor.

Jeff and I were married August 27, 2005. It was a beautiful day, mostly overcast, but warm nonetheless. Our ceremony took place at noon at St. Albert's the Great Church, the Church in which I grew up. My childhood priest also married us which was extra special. My bridesmaid's wore a blue strapless dress and the flowers were colored roses. My bouquet was all white roses with a white ribbon tied around the stems. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous, I love our florist, she did an amazing job. She also did a wonderful job in hanging around for the ceremony to begin and did her best job in calming my nerves.

My sister, of course, was my maid of honor. My bridesmaids also consisted of Lisa, who I met at work several years ago, friends Megan and Gina were fellow Pi Phi's with me in college and my sister-in-law, Melissa. My two adorable niece's were our flower girls, it's amazing to see how little they were back then, they are mini-teenagers now!!!

Jeff's brother, Nick, stood up as his best man. His other groomsman were my two brothers, Jason and Brian, and his two best friend's Marc and Brett.

Following the ceremony, we drove around the greater Cleveland area taking pictures at all the popular local tourist attractions: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland Browns Stadium, and University Circle.

Looking back at our wedding just fills me with such happiness. Everything about the day was special, not only were Jeff and I finally married, but we were able to share it with all of our friends and family. It's hard to believe that we will be celebrating our four year anniversary in a few weeks!!!!
