Our Wedding Story

Now that it is April 25 and we got married December 24 I figured it was time I start sharing pictures from our big day :) For those of you who do not know us, this is the story of our wedding... 

>>if you already know our story you can skip to the pictures ;)

Travis proposed at the end of September 2012 just days before he left for boot camp. He was there for 2 months. I went to Chicago to see his graduation and then he immediately went to Missouri for A-School. He was going to be there for 13 weeks. After doing some research and learning about how the military works a little we decided it would be best if  we were married before he was stationed somewhere {semi} permanently. 

So we planned a wedding for December 24 since he was going to be home on leave for Christmas :) We decided to make it small and intimate because of the short notice, and really thats just kind of us! On Christmas eve at my grandparents condo we were married by his grandpa! Our parents, siblings, and grandparents were all there. It was intimate and romantic. I loved every minute of that day, it was truly perfect!

We took pictures at a tree farm, had the ceremony, then headed downtown to Bistro Bella Vita for dinner. It was really nice to just spend time with our family and feel relaxed instead of crazed! :) Even though it was small and did not take as much planning as a large wedding, at the end of the day I still felt like it flew by and couldn't believe we were married! To wake up next to my husband and best friend that next morning was truly the best Christmas present EVER :) 

I will never forget that day, and thanks to my awesome brother I have pictures to help me always remember! Slowly but surely I will post all the pictures from the day but to start here is me getting ready...

That morning I had breakfast with my mom, then Audrey came over to do my hair and Sammie came to hang out with us :) And at the last minute we decided we should have Hailey come over and do my make-up! 
I hope your having an awesome Thursday!
