FC: Our Wedding Day... | A Day for Celebration... | A Day for Love... | February 4th, 2011
1: Here we are hefting my heavy dress up. | I arrived at the church with hair and makeup done... the girls were all dressed and so it was my turn.
3: The girls helped me into my dress and we started to work on fitting the corset.
4: Ray started to work on the lacings, when I noticed I had forgotten to put on my slip! | Oops girls, I have a job for you...
5: Whitney and Ray shimmied the slip up while Niesha played peek-a-boo behind my train.
7: As I was laced, the final details all started to come together... | And I was ready to go meet my groom. | Like a Princess...
8: But before that, we got some candids of the girls getting ready!
9: So live them while they're here... | These days only come once in a lifetime...
10: I was finally able to go see Zac. I headed down the hallway and out the church doors....
11: I reached out and turned him around, then went in for a hug.
12: We hugged, I straightened his boutonniere, and he admired my dress.
13: We were so happy to see each other before the ceremony... we stole a kiss.
14: The sunset over the church made a beautiful setting for our special day... the glittering snow was just like I had imagined.
15: My dress looked lovely on the snow... as the girls peeked out from behind the church doors.
17: Love me forever; I'll be your phoenix, and you my turtle.
19: Gazing at you... | Our photo shoot was held before the ceremony, so we could head straight to the reception afterwards!
20: A kiss for my handsome ringbearer. And another from my new little sis.
23: Zac with his boys.
24: Kisses for Grandma Lamb. | We took a lot of lovely photos... | A kiss from Sammy.
27: Some photos with the family...
28: We grabbed a few more photos with everyone.... | And before too long...
29: It was time.
30: The bridal party lined up outside the sanctuary, while I stayed hidden around the corner.
31: Robb and Jordan escorted our mothers down the aisle so they could light our individual unity candles.
32: Lily and Sammy were junior bridesmaids and went first. Alex and Ray, Joel and Niesha, Cody and Whitney, then Michael and Royce followed.
33: The longest short walk you'll ever make...
35: The moment I heard the music play, I was filled with emotion... It's really happening, I'm really getting married...
36: Here comes the bride! | I've never felt like this before; it's something remarkable.
37: The preacher gave Zac the go ahead to assist me up the stairs, and so it began...
38: Reading our vows...
39: and exchanging rings. | "With this ring..."
40: We lit the unity candles, and the two flames of our lives sparked into one warm fire.
41: Zac, you may now kiss your bride.
42: It is my privilege to present to you Mr. and Mrs. Zac Koesler.
43: We made our way back down the aisle, as a married couple, hand in hand. We waited outside the sanctuary doors as our bridal party followed us.
44: It was emotional for some of my bridesmaids... Royce and Whitney were teary-eyed.
46: We went to the back ... | ...and signed the license. It was official!
47: Our receiving line threw bird seed and bubbles at us as we ran by, into the get away car that Buhda was driving.
