Okay, so the CubBuster has been occupied for quite some time, but I mean I became a Smith, got a job, moved, and traveled around the world in such a short time that I have reason for my absence.
I cannot find the words to express how absolutely blessed I feel and have felt for such a long time. I want to bottle up these emotions and feelings so that when the hard days come, I can remember how blessed I am. God tells us that we will have good times and bad, but when He is our rock, there is nothing to worry about. He always gets us through the tough stuff, and that's why we can truly appreciate the good stuff. If only I could truly thank everyone who made our wedding as amazing at is was. There really aren't words.
Matthew and I could not have had a more amazing wedding weekend. I mean, seriously. Besides the day I discovered coffee, found Jesus, made a homemade ice cold frappacino, figured out how to make the slinky go all the way down the stairs, or watched my first "Friends" episode, my wedding day was the best day of my life! Well, maybe second best after the day I just had in Italy having gelato four times in a row..... But you get the idea. It was incredible! What a blessing. While there were a few things we'd all change (I mean nothing is really perfect except heaven, God, and coffee-flavored gelato) it was perfect!
We had our rehearsal on Friday since there were back-to-back weddings scheduled on Saturday....
|At the botanical gardens getting ready for the run-through!|
|My brother and Nick were so professional.|
They wanted to keep everyone on track and not miss a beat (pun intended)
|Dad got there late, so I had to be sure he new what to do.|
"Take one step forward, then the next, then another, then another."
See I'm a great teacher!
|Miss Carla rocks as a wedding coordinator!|
I think she missed her calling.
|My dad wanted to be sure Matthew took over my hand fully,|
which symbolized having to deal with all aspects of Katie Blair
in the near future. Good luck Mr. Smith!
|We didn't want to mess up at all, so we listened to Pastor Carlos intently.|
When he speaks, its definitely important to listen.
|At pre-rehearsal dinner. Two days before the big day!|
Thank you Dad and Kathy for putting together such a fabulous evening.
We love you!
