Seven and Counting, Plus a Vintage Wedding Party!

Seven years ago in May, Dear Hubby and I were married...




Me, getting ready!!!!! The nerves were starting to set in.













All the buttons... that's my Mom taking care of the "Last minute touches"







The train of my gown... full of beads.







The courtyard where we had the beginning of our reception.



Mmmm...the cake. I wish I remember what it tasted like!
I'm surprise it didn't melt. It was a really hot day in May.



Thunderstorms were approaching as we were wrapping up the reception!




The pretty pink rose centerpieces. A dear friend of mine saved some of the roses from a centerpiece and a strand of pearls, gave them to me a year later. So sweet!

And what's a romantic tale without a sweet chairot!






Happy Anniversay, honey!



Thanks for an adventurous seven years. I can't wait to see what



we can accomplish in the next seven... and beyond!



Love,

Congrats to you both. You were a beautiful bride. I'm sure your next seven is going to be even more fun than the first. It will be different, but that's a good thing.

Hi Jillian! Thanks so much for joining our Wedding Blog Party! My out of town relatives are gone now, and I'm so enjoying all my friend's beautiful wedding posts!

What a beautiful gown you had ~ I just love all the detailing down the back of it! Your cake looked absolutely amazing! I don't remember what ours tasted like either! How sweet of your friend to save some of the roses and pearls and to present to you on your anniversary! Something to cherish forever! Love that vintage car, too!
