I purchased my gown at The Something Blue Shoppe in Hartselle, AL. It is a Signature Justin Alexander gown. They picked my dress up in Rome literally a few weeks before I tried it on the store and said yes!
He proposed at the bottom of the Grand Canyon while we were hiking it. During the entire hike (took 3 days), we listened to John Denver. For our first dance song, we danced to “Annie’s Song” by John Denver. It brought us back to that magical trip. We had no cell reception at all, so it was amazing to be able to experience the first few blissful days of our engagement with just us two. We didn’t have to worry about calling everyone and posting anything on social media just yet. We
will cherish that time forever!
We had many wedding showers given to us. The two main ones were from our parents. My family threw us one at our reception venue (Pickett Place) that was a beautiful modern-styled wedding shower. His family threw us one in Pell City, AL at The Brook Besor that was a gorgeous “I Do BBQ” style shower.
We had a guest photo book instead of a guest signing book. We purchased a Polaroid camera with film so guests could take pictures of them at the reception, tape it onto a page, and write us a note. It is one of my favorite keep-sakes from our entire wedding!
I had 1 grandparent from each side of my family pass away, so for the ceremony, I had my grandfather walk down with a rose in memory of my grandmother. My other grandmother walked down the aisle with a rose in memory of my grandfather. They laid their roses in the seats next to them in respect for their memories. Our wedding was everything we ever dreamed of. We are loving married life and excited for this chapter in our lives!
