The BIG day

Hi Lovies!

I am officially Mrs. Olson! I am very happy to say everything went smoothly. From the rehearsal dinner to our extended family's meetings, to pictures and finally the ceremony. 

You hear horror stories all the time about disasters happening; people bailing last minute and what have you so I definitely stressed when things got down to the wire. 

The bridesmaids went out for breakfast first thing in the morning before the craziness of the day started and the boys went golfing. 

Then the bridal party headed to the church for hair and makeup. I did my own and my hair actually cooperated!!! I was so lucky and (due to the entire can of hair spray I used) it held up all day with no touch-ups. 

I must say my favorite part of the day were the first looks. Matt looked so handsome and I was so excited for him to finally see my dress. Our pictures came out beautifully and even though it was extremely hot out, it was well worth the sweating. 

The ceremony was beautiful! We were both able to get through our vows without getting too choked up. The unity candle and communion added great final touches to represent our union and relationship. 

THEN CAME THE PARTAY! I think everyone's favorite part of the wedding is always the dancing. We even had a couple of adorable kids stealing the show!!

All and all everything was a blast and it went through smoothly. There were a few hiccups but we just rolled with the punches :) 

Now we are off to enjoy our honeymoon and our first days as husband and wife. 

Kisses, Shavon
