Show us Your Life-Wedding Party

Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is still hosting her Show Us Your Life series & this week it is all about the wedding party flowers & ceremony. I haven't yet participated in this series, but I always love looking at my wedding photos & everyone else's so I thought I would join in.
We had a May wedding with a garden party theme--I quickly decided on tea length dresses for my girls with vibrant flower colors! We used shades of blue, pink, green, & coral all through the ceremony directions & reception. It turned out so beautifully when everything came together!
We got married in the church I grew up in and the same church that my parents & my grandparents got married in. Our ceremony was at 5 (I think it started at more like 5:20 due to the crowd of people waiting to be seated)! We both had friends from high school, family members, & friends from college stand up with us. We had 3 songs...Hubby's sister sang How Beautiful, my aunt sang If You Could See, and Hubby's aunt sang the Lord's Prayer. We opted for a family prayer that included our parents instead of a unity candle. My cousin led the prayer while the Lord's Prayer was sung for the rest of the congregation...I think it was one of my favorite times of the entire ceremony.
Now, on to the pictures!
Our entire wedding party--I loved how the flowers blended so well with the girls' dresses. My mom made pocket squares for the guys that matched perfectly! They all look fabulous!

My favorite picture of me and my girls!

I loved the decorations at our church...candles, flowers, & antique silver candleabras!

My bouquet was more than I expected...my something old was a pin from my Great Grandma & strands of pearls that were my mom's baby pearls!

I love this shot coming out of the church..everything just blends so perfectly & it was such a happy day!

Thanks for visiting!
