Where do I even start?? I met Christine and Ben for the first time at their engagement session and it did not take long to realize how similar they were to Will and me. Christine is so real and down to earth and I could not help but feel like we should have met a long time ago!
It was so funny because Christine mentioned to me that she was so nervous, but not because she was getting married today. No, she had no doubt she would spend the rest of her life happily married to Ben. It was that getting up in front of 100+ people that was the terrifying part! I actually laughed out loud because I had said the same thing a year ago on my own wedding day. Ben also had a slue of great quotes throughout the day but my favorite was when we were walking together up to the house so that Christine and Ben could read their letters to each other before the ceremony. Ben casually said "You know, if you see me tear up, its just because of the bright sun." Sure Ben, sure.
It took an architect to figure out the lacing!
She was just stunning...
Ben and Christine stood a door apart while reading letters to one another before the ceremony...
Ben smiled and said "She writes better than me..." Christine had tears in her eyes, a smile on her face, and love in her heart when she said "I don't know about that..."
Aaand then there was line dancing :)
The father of the bride seeing her for the first time...
We could not have asked for a better day...
The mothers carried special bouquets...
Did I mention that Zoe got to stop by?! The pup immediately jumped for Christine. So sweat!
Will and I knew we were surrounded by loving, welcoming people but even we did not see the invitation coming by the parents of the bride and groom to sit with them for dinner! I cannot say with words how amazing it was to share a meal and conversation with them and am so thankful for their kindness throughout the whole day!
The dances always get me...
