Let me tell you a little about our ceremony. Collin + I got married at The Barn at Sanderlin Horse Farm in Appling, Georgia on September 27th. We are HUGE music people, and we spent WEEKS working on all the music for our ceremony, "dinnertime" and the reception. We decided to throw the "order" of a traditional wedding ceremony out the window and do our own thing. Our wedding party walked in to Perpetuum Mobile... but then figured what the hell, the groom should get his own entrance too! So, Collin entered to The Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme) and then my dad walked me down the aisle to Hedwig's Theme from Harry Potter (scroll to the VERY bottom for a video).
I don't drink and we had a lot of family + friends in attendance, so we didn't think a "toast" was for us. Instead, we had Collin's Best Man, Brandon, and my Matron of Honor (Katie) give their toasts as little "speeches" during the ceremony. I am absolutely NOT a crier; Katie actually teases me ALL the time about it, but one of the only times I cried the entire day (aside from during my vows) was hearing Katie's speech, I'm getting all teary eyed thinking about it. Collin's dad got ordained so he could officiate our ceremony, which was amazing, and we exited to Alive With the Glory of Love by Say Anything. Here it is... I'll let y'all see it for yourselves!

On a lighter note, I can't describe to y'all how many freaking hours it took my mom + I to make all those pennant banners and because she's the best, she's making them into a wedding quilt for us. Southern moms y'all... they're the f*cking best. My dress was a custom creation with the help of Dolly Couture, my shoes were an Yves Saint Laurent/Tom Ford collaboration for her 2003 Fall/Winter collection and the bridesmaid dresses were by Soho Mode.
