I used to think a wedding was a simple affair. . .

Boy and girl meet, they fall in love, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say I do. I was wrong. That's getting married. A wedding is an entirely different proposition. -George Banks, Father of the Bride

My sister married Jeremy on June 5, 2010. It was a beautiful day and everything was perfect down to the tiniest detail. Abby has only been planning this day for, oh, her entire life. In high school she bought bridal magazines and made idea notebooks. She would have Mr. Fields, the choir director at BJHS, play wedding songs in class that she wanted to have at her played at her wedding. (Mr. Fields played and sang at both of our weddings!) When I planned my wedding, she had all the info I needed on anything I was thinking about. Barbara Ingram was the brains behind the production. She is the owner of Barbara's Wedding Shoppe and takes care of everything. At this point, she and her husband Bobby are more like family. She did my wedding, and several of my friends before doing Abby's. She is A-MAZING.

I don't know that I could ever write the words to describe just how beautiful and special this day was. Abby was a stunning bride. Jeremy's Grandpa Al performed the beautiful ceremony. Abby's wedding party was all of her sweet friends that she has been close to for years. The reception at The Depot was so much fun and a great celebration with friends and family.

Here are just a few pictures taken by the most talented photographer ever- Alyson Clemons. She was so much fun to work with that day and captured the entire wedding weekend with some fabulous shots.

Yes, Abby did MY eye make up that day. :)

This picture makes me think of a preview for a new "family" sitcom on ABC.
My sweet parents- love this picture!
