Right after our first look, we went right into portraits (with the ceremony/dinner to follow). During our portraits we had cocktail hour going on which we actually got to join in on after photos! It was so fun being able to spend time with our family + close friends before the ceremony.
Next up is the ceremony! My Uncle Dan was our officiant and it meant the absolute world to have him do that for us. Asking him was a day I will never forget. We all cried happy tears after Ty & I gifted him an officiant book with a letter asking if he would be the one to marry us. He made the ceremony so God-centered and special to our relationship. He had asked us questions prior to the wedding about each other and shared it during the ceremony. Most people want to speed through ceremonies but I highly encourage you to think of ways to make it special. It’s the whole reason you are there, anyway(: We added special elements like Tyler’s mom reading a verse, my aunt Lori doing a blessing (with the same oil I was dedicated with), and Dan giving a little background to our relationship
Part 3 will be dinner & reception! Some of my favorites are in there & I cant wait to share! Stay tuned!
