Officially a Mrs!

It has now been a week since Cody and I said “I do”. It has been a whirlwind experience and went by faster than you can possibly imagine. Instead of doing my usual weekend recap (you can check out from past ones here), I wanted to recap that whirlwind experience and share some of our photographs we’ve received from that amazing day!

We flew into Iowa Wednesday and was picked up by Cody’s parents. Wednesday had a sad tone to it as we had to say our final goodbyes to Grandma Great, Cody’s great-grandma. It was sad but we were glad that she could now come to the wedding in spirit as she was too weak to come in person.

Thursday we got up and went to pick up our wedding bands and I got my ring cleaned for the big day. My mom met us there so her and I could go run some errands and Cody could spend some more time with his family. Mom and I picked up some last minute details for the wedding and got our nails done together.

Thursday night Cody came back to my parents by the time supper was ready. We spent the evening writing letters to our wedding party, parents, and each other; we decided a letter would be a great gift to give each other and a keepsake forever. That night we also got everything organized so we knew what went where.

Friday we got up and finished some last minute things, including picking up the tuxes, before heading to the venue to set up our stations and put chair covers on. We had so much help, which I was grateful for everyone who came to help out. My family, Cody, and I grabbed some lunch before splitting up to get ready for rehearsal.

We met up at the church where rehearsal when swimmingly. Then we headed over to Brown Bottle, an Italian restaurant downtown, for the rehearsal dinner. It was great food and even greater company!

The wedding party decided to go out a little longer then split off and we hung out with our respective parties until it was time to get a good night’s sleep.

Saturday was a great day from start to finish. Everything went smoothly and the weather couldn’t have been better! I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

First thing I did was read my letter and shed a few tears.

Sunday we had brunch and gift opening with family and friends then we each got to spend our last full day in Iowa with our families. I was glad I was able to spend some time with our family and friends that came from out of town.

It was a wonderful time and I am so excited to be married to the man of my dreams! Here are some of the fantastic pictures our photographer, Ashley Corrine Photography, captured.
