So, we were married!
We made our way back to the bridal room, where our witnesses and priest would sign our license.
There were smiles all around as Father Mike instructed Jeff & Ali on where to sign.
First Ali signed…
…while Dr. Groomy and I watched.
Then Jeff signed…
…while apparently only Father Mike paid attention.
And then it was official! We were really husband and wife. We took a quick photo with Father Mike:
And then hightailed it back into the sanctuary to take some boring posey-posey photos at the altar.
We stopped to show off our rings…
And then took a few more posey-poseys.*
(*Please note that I am sparing you most of these…we took a ton, with his family, my family, grandparents, etc! I just didn’t want to do too much overload on the blog.)
We did take a moment to get a photo with each of our “personal attendants” (aka the two who took care of any issues all day and kept our sanity!):
Dr. Groomy with his Aunt Shari, the Groom’s Attendant
Me with my cousin Erin, the Bride’s Attendant
And of course, our super cute little people:
And then we headed outside to get on the bus! Of course, we stopped for a some more photos:
And a celebration shot from Dr. Groomy:
I flippin’ love this series of photos. They’re so him, haha.
One more kiss in front of the church…
…and then it was time to get on the bus!
Up next, we take some fun outdoor shots…and then head to the reception!
First I got a mani-pedi with my sister, then I cried.
Next, we headed to church to rehearse.
After that, we had a fiesta-themed rehearsal dinner at a local restaurant.
In the morning, we went to the salon to get our hair done.
Meanwhile, the guys went to a chili contest and got ready at the hotel.
Back in my hotel room, the girls got ready.
Then, I put on my dress and officially became a bride.
