9 Month Anniversary

Another month down, I cannot believe how the time flies. Our first year of marriage will be here before you know it. This month, I thought I would share the second (and final) strange thing that happened on our wedding day.

One of our best men (we had 2), Cory was getting ready the morning of the wedding and fell out of the shower and caught himself with his hand. Unfortunately, he caught himself on a medicine cabinet that came crashing down and cut his hand pretty badly. He tried to clean himself up and get it together and went straight to the hotel where the guys were getting ready. He played some Rock Band with the guys, got dressed and took some photos. This all happened as his hand got progressively worse. Everyone convinced him to go to the hospital and he finally did.

Both bridal parties met to take the formal photos before the ceremony and Geof and I had a special moment where I had my back to him and he came up, tapped me on the shoulder and we saw each other for the first time. It was so special and calmed both of our nerves. After this moment and everyone greeted each other, I noticed that someone was missing. Everyone said they were afraid to tell me what happened because they thought I would be really upset. I was fine, but worried about Cory.

We spent about an hour or two taking the photos and then headed to the church still unsure if Cory would be able to make it in time or not, as he was still at the hospital getting stitches. Once we arrived at the church, he called and said he was on his way. We delayed the beginning of the ceremony about 15-20 minutes to wait for him.

As I was walking down the aisle I felt so relieved that everyone was okay and present and accounted for! If you knew Cory, this would not surprise you at all. I have never seen anyone more prone to injury than him. I’m just happy he was alright!

Here are some more photos taken by Cindy Guessford.

I had soooo many stress out moments during my wedding. And before the big day I was a very mild (I stress mild) bridezilla. But when everything started going on wrong...I couldn't help but laugh at it all because it didnt matter, I just wanted to marry the man I love! Happy 9 months! We have been married for a year and 2 months...and that seems just crazy! It seems like only yesterday! The pictures are beautiful!
