My dress was taffeta. When I first saw the dress I fell in love with all of the pick~ups decorating the skirt. I think it had such an elegant design! I had the cap sleeves made out of the wrap that came with my dress. They felt a little more timeless than the strapless dresses everyone wears now.
I also loved the button design down the back, It made the dress look a little more vintage and old fashioned
The champagne color became a theme throughout the whole wedding once I bought my dress with this sash.
Broaches really started getting big at the time
I just love how my hair turned out!
I always refer to my wedding as shabby chic country. We were married in a very simple church and had our reception at a park.
Galvanized buckets full of hydrangeas were another theme throughout.
I love the rose buds in butter dishes.
Champagne ribbon on the programs
The wedding invitations too
My father~in~law and my husband actually tied most of the bows on the programs and invitations. Such talented men!
Left over roses and hydrangeas saved for the cake
My bouquet of champagne roses and blue delphiniums

I still adore just looking at their dresses!
Such a cutie pie!
The exchange of vows

Being presented for the second time as Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Asper
(Yes, that's a Mountain Dew in my husband's hand)
We actually stopped at a gas station on the way to the reception. I did not go in, I guess the lady at the register thought my husband was crazy, and he is...The guys loved it though!
I sigh whenever I see all the beautiful wedding pictures on Pinterest and I wish it had existed at the time. I could have done some amazing things with the head table and the fireplace!

Our beautiful wedding cake ~ it was just delicious!
Cutting the cake
Smashing the cake!
Nate insisted on smashing the cake. It was one of his few requests. Turns out it's lots of fun, I don't regret it at all!
The happiest day of my life ~
From this day forward,
You shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter,
And my arms will be
