Every year when the Today Show starts their Today’s Wedding series it brings me back to a great time and I have “warm and fuzzy” feelings! You know the kind of happiness that comes from the holidays? It’s like that for me when I see the Today’s Wedding series start.
In June 2004, my FIThubby (then my FITfiance) graduated from USAFA. I had already transfered colleges (a total of FOUR) and I needed one more semester to graduate. I stayed in Denver to finish my last semester of college. Once I finished my Bachelor’s Degree, I headed to my parents’ home in Atlanta for a month until the wedding. FIThubby was already in Macon, GA at our first assignment in the AF. I was so lucky to have a month to finish all of the wedding details on a budget so I could have everything the way I wanted it and do it all myself to save moo-lah!
I spent that month before my wedding almost entirely on my wedding, which included my morning coffee with theToday Show Wedding!I watched them picking out things for their wedding while I was doing the same for mine. I was scared and nervous and excited and remember sitting there and thinking about my wedding day and what it would be like.
I love this year’s Today’s Wedding Couple probably because we have a lot in common….He is in the Army. My FIThubby is in the Air Force. They were high school sweethearts. We were high school sweethearts. They have been separated a great deal. We lived in the same city when we were 15 years old for only 6 months and then we were long distance until we got married!! They are from Missouri. We met in Kansas. (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!) This year I will be voting!! They make it so easy! There is a tab on their FB page for wedding and it’s so easy to find and click! You don’t even need to watch the show to vote….all the choices are right there. I feel like it’s my duty this year to make sure this girl has a beautiful wedding 🙂 Check out their Facebook page here.
I thought I’d share some images from my wedding and some of the details that were so important to get just right. This was September 25, 2004. It was the best day of my life so far (we don’t have kiddos yet). I can’t believe we were so young! We were high school sweethearts and our first date was around THIRTEEN years ago! 🙂
The first set of pictures ismy favorite moment of the entire day!!! Who knew that you had to explain to the FIThubby what he had to do with the cake cutting!!! Seriously?! It’s a tradition at a military wedding to cut the first peice of the cake with a sword, which we did, but my FIThubby thought he had to cut the cake for all of our wedding guests!!!! So, he tried to cut through THE ENTIRE CAKE!!! In the video, yes there’s a video, you can see the sword coming out the back side of the cake! It was my favorite moment from the day!
Some of our wedding details…
We had so much fun that day. It went by too quickly, as all weddings do, I guess.
Most of these pics were taken by Legacy Studios though she’s taking time off to raise her kiddos!
SHARE…..What were some of your crazy wedding memories??? Anything out of the ordinary happen? It always does, right??
