FC: Our Wedding Day Story July 30, 2010
1: The day began at St. Michael's Catholic church in Grand Forks. The ladies and I spent the morning getting beautified in the bride's room, while swapping stories and laughing. We were so excited! | I felt just like Cinderella, except Tiffany put my shoe on instead of my prince.
2: By noon, we were all dolled up and ready to head upstairs. It was time to see my groom!
3: While I walked down the aisle toward David, I felt so anxious. When he turned around he said "you look beautful"
4: After seeing my handsome groom for the first time that day, we all made our way to University Park to take our first round of photos. Weren't we an awesome looking bridal party!
5: It was a great day to take outdoor pictures. There was a bit of overcast due to the little bit of rain we got that morning. It was slightly humid, but not too bad...but that didn't keep the guys from complaining about being warm in their tuxes.
