Second Time's the Charm!

I never would have guessed that I'd be this young and already on my second marriage! At least it's to the same person...I guess some people are just special enough to marry more than once :)

When we got engaged and entered this whirlwind of change that has only just begun to settle down, we thought that the circumstances that pushed us to have a courthouse wedding were "not ideal". We're traditional people. But, looking back, many of the decisions that we have made have been by trusting God and doing what our instincts tell us to do, and we always end up on the right path. That first "legal" wedding was so much more special than we were prepared for it to be, and it gave us a comfortable window of time to plan our church/family wedding the way we had envisioned it.

Having 9 months of marriage experience before getting married ended up being a really special time for us to reflect on what our commitment means, and really appreciate what we're doing as we planned out our wedding day.

Planning a wedding from another country is about as diffiult as you would expect it to be, and the further you get into it, the more it takes on a mind of it's own! We're so thankful for the help of our families (especially both moms)...I don't think we could have pulled it off without you! Everything turned out beautifully, and it was so nice to see our families all in the same place. It was also nice to be back in America, and back in Lawrenceburg where everyone makes you feel like family. Thanks to everyone who shared our wedding day with us.

Last, I'd like to thank our photographer, Jessica Brown from MOONBelle Photography. Having beautiful pictures to preserve our memories was so important to us! You can see Jessica's pictures by clicking on the picture below:
