Four years ago today....

David and I were married. I remember waking up that morning and being sad. I was sad because I had to leave David. We chose to sleep at home, together, that night and I had to leave him. It was so hard for me to say goodbye and I also had a hard time fighting back the tears. It was rainy - all day, with the exception of about an hour, just long enough to take pictures outside. This was our first meeting. It was pretty emotional.
Our ceremony was supposed to be outside in the Normandale Japanese Gardens, but because of the rain, we had to have it indoors at our reception site, Wyndham Hotel. Our ceremony was so short - 11 minutes! We followed the ceremony with a reception - dinner and dancing. We had a blast!

We haven't watched the video in quite a while - I think we may do that when we come home from my sister's 8th grade graduation tonight. Hopefully one day Graycen will love watching our video!

I remember this day well. Good thing I had that extra shout wipe in my purse. Remember that? I think I was also your impromtu wedding coordinator helping everyone get down the aisle!

It was fun!

Wow, four years. Congrats, guys!
Interestingly enough, i got married like yards away from the Japanese gardens, at Bloomington Baptist church right up the hill. i was considering going to the gardens for pictures, but they charge quite a lot of money for it, as well as the end of August has pretty much no flowers. Also, my junior year of HS my prom date (not Kris) and i took our pics there, so i don't think Kris would have liked it:)
Anyway, congrats again!
