I waited for this moment for what seemed like forever, so please bare with me because I have a lot of photos to share with you. from beginning to end, nerves and joy, family and friends, mr. and mrs., getting ready and getting down, saying I do and cutting the cake, this was the day of our dreams. 

a few minor details about our day. 
Elisha and I had decided we didn't want to see each other before the wedding. This caused only mild concern for our photographer who wanted so desperately to have photos of us together while the sun was still out. while giving each other our gifts outside, he sneakily orchestrated our photos so that we never actually saw each other, but were still able to get the most perfect shots. One, or both, of our eyes were always closed or looking away. And no, we didn't peek! 
Adrienne and I hand painted, cut and made flowers for our bouquets, using this diy from 100 Layer Cake and Heart of Light on A Beautiful Mess. Thanks for the inspiration girls!
There were 3 horses, 1 dog, 1 cat, 5 ducks and 2 camels on site. Unfortunately none of them got photographed.
My mom crocheted all of the rocks we used for our guest table.
We served hot cocoa and coffee outside during the ceremony - because it was November and unusually cool.
I've never danced so much at a wedding.
thank you so much to every single person who was involved in making our special day exactly what we always hoped it would be. it means the world to us and we love you all! melisa + elisha
