Wedding Linky Party!

Justin and I got married on May 2nd 2009! We celebrated our 2 year anniversary a little over a month ago but we have been together for 8 years.... highschool sweethearts <3

**Scroll to the bottom of my post to link up and share some fun details of your wedding day!**

Here are our Wedding ABCs...

We invited about 200 guests and ended up having like 165 or 170.

I had 8 bridesmaids, 7 bridesmaids and 1 junior bridesmaid! My maid of honor was one of my absolute best friends ( and I am going to be her maid of honor on july 16th this year!!!) and the other bridesmaids are all very close/ best friends and my junior bridesmaid was my cousin who I adore!

I dont know that we have any pictures of the food!!! Oops. We served a duet plate of Lasagna (Justin's family is italian) and a Chicken breast with garlic cream sauce. Also garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli. The food was really good and we loved it! Here is a picture of the place settings at the head table:

Our cake was from The Suisse Shop and it was to die for!!! We designed it ourself and they made it even more wonderful than we expected it to be. We got so many compliments on how our cake looked and how good it was. We have 3 different layers of different flavors/fillings.

I also got a Groom's Cake for Justin that I gave to him at the rehearsal dinner. It was made by The Suisse Shop also. We are both Penn State Alumni and we love beer pong so this cake just made perfect sense!

The dress was really important to me. I knew that I wanted LACE! I went to tons of stores and tried on dresses but in the end I got the first dress that I tried on =) I was down to 2 dresses that I was deciding between and we kept going back and forth to the two stores and this is the one that I chose (and Im so happy that I did):

We got engaged on April 10th 2008, my 23rd birthday. Justin and I had been together for 5 years so he knew that he couldnt just take me out on a normal night or I would know that something was up. We went out to dinner at Smith and Wollensky's with my parents then headed home and when we got home he had wrapped my engagement ring up inside of my birthday present (a vera bradley purse).
(out with friends the next night celebrating)

This was my other favorite part! I planned my wedding around my flowers because I knew just what I wanted. Light pink and white PEONIES! I love them, they are delicate and have a vintage appeal that I just cant resist!

There were 8 groomsmen, 6 close friends of the groom, the grooms cousin, and a junior groomsman that was my cousin.

We went on a cruise to Aruba, Bonaire, Dominica, Grenada, and St. Thomas!

I wore flip flops because the high heels that I got to wear made my dress too short. I am 5'8 and apparently that is the height my dress was made for =)

Our reception was a golf club and had a gorgeous balcony that overlooked the course and the sunset!


  1. What a sweet hubby you have! Your wedding was beautiful! I just LOVE the flowers! So gorgeous!

  2. Happy to see this shotgun wedding. It is really good to see this wedding. Couple of days back I was invited to my employees wedding at one of wedding venues and was really happy to find best arrangement there.
