First of all, I am now a married woman! Abram's dad, Tracy and I got married in Northeast Iowa and spent three wonderful days in a Victorian Bed and Breakfast near the Mississippi River. The leaves were in peak season and it was beautiful! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! The weather warned us it was going to be cold and rainy but the clouds parted, made a beautiful sunset and we spent the rest of the night around a fire. It was absolutely perfect.
We opted to have a VERY small Wedding so we decided that getting married at my Dad's place would be perfect! We have spent a weekend there every summer going for a visit and to kayak down the Yellow River since we started dating almost six years ago (after 14 years of friendship)! So, we got Married on a little cliff overlooking that river, my good friend Jessica married us, my dad led a nice ceremony in the Medicine Wheel and we did it all with our kids by our side! Little Abram (who fell asleep for our photos) and Taylor, my now step-daughter!
We could only invite a handful of people including family so we were unable to share our special day with all the people we would have liked but it was wonderful having such a personal wedding with the people we have known nearly all of our lives! So if you are reading this and did not get invited to attend, please do not have hurt feelings! We wanted to be able to invite EVERYONE but we financially could not do it and since all of our food was home cooked we couldn't feed more than 20 people! There will be a party announcement for December coming out soon!
