These past couple of weeks have been a little busy. All of the wedding planning came together on July 2nd and 3rd, and I thought everything was absolutely perfect. My family and friends worked so incredibly hard to make it even better than I imagined it would be. It was so much fun to have my family (minus Sambo, our little Brazilian missionary) here, I always love being with them! And my friends Mindy and Holly drove through a hurricane to come from Texas! I've never felt more loved in my life!
Cory and I were married on July 2nd, in the Orlando, Florida Temple. It was a beautiful, slightly rainy day...so we broke out the umbrellas. Also, all of these images were taken by Kimberly Brock.
My parents let us have the reception at their house the next day. From what I hear, everyone went a little bit crazy Saturday morning and afternoon getting things set up for it, but by the time I got there it all looked beautiful.
We were so lucky to be able to have two very special people bake and decorate our cakes. My sister Jackie flew in from Utah a week early to get started on the wedding cake. Three glorious layers of lemon and carrot cake, decorated with homemade frosting and marshmallow fondant. Our friend Joanna, who I was friends with since even before she married Cory's best friend Danny, made a golf themed groom's cake for Cory. Both were absolutely adorable. See for yourself:
One of the things I loved most were the special handmade and homemade details everywhere. I asked my sister Kourtney to make a few banners for us, completely unaware of the stress I was bringing down upon her. She made two perfect banners that hung over the BBQ buffet and Ice cream dessert bar. She worked soooo hard to make them perfect, and they were stunning. The picture doesn't capture the light blue layers of each letter, or the carefully glittered words...but it will give you the general idea.
And, of course no July 4th weekend wedding could be complete without fireworks. Kourtney's husband Juan and my brother Jesse ended the night with a bang or two.
I'm so happy to be married to Cory, and I'm excited to see what our new adventures will be. I have so many friends getting married lately, so the wedding fever is extended! I'm so glad the planning process is over for me though...just sayin'. I can't wait for Kristen's wedding this weekend, and Jesse and Tanya's next weekend!
Also, I'm now accepting suggestions for a new blog name. Something with both Lindy and Cory in it, maybe. Bring it on, and maybe you're suggestion will be chosen!
