Wedding Story: Jordan and Brian

One factor that can always get me excited about a wedding, no matter what the other circumstances might be, is when I know that the wedding is going to be full of straight up awesome people. Somehow we are super lucky and get this situation often :) In this case I knew it would be true without a doubt.

We were connected to Jordan and Brian through Dawn and Stephen. First let me say this, Dawn has been the bride that has sent us the most referrals. This girl is AWESOME. Second of all, we met Brian, Jordan and many of their mutual friends at Dawn and Stephen's wedding and we decided then that we wanted to be a part of all of their friends weddings. Luckily they like us too! So at Brian and Jordan's wedding we had a couple from 2009 and then a couple who has booked with us for 2011. THAT IS FUN!

The ceremony was at Sandy Grove UMC and the reception was at Camp Rockfish...

I don't quite remember what the prompt was but I think all that matters is that everyone was excited about the wedding- yay!

CUTE STORY TIME: So one day Jordan and Brian were riding the airport to pick someone up and they had stopped to eat. As Brian was just taking a bite of his burger Jordan told him she liked him. He couldn't take another bite.
So Jordan sent him a burger on their wedding day and he was so excited he could only take a bite again...

I don't know what your views on prayer are but let me tell you, it is a powerful thing to be a bride surrounded by the women she loves as they pour out their hearts in voicing their hopes for you and your soon to be spouse.

Jordan did the coolest thing with her bouquet...
She had various people (I think all women) that had been influential in her life give her flowers on her way to the altar. Once she reached Brian, he had one for her too. Then, instead of a unity candle, her mom and his mom went together and tied all the flowers into a bouquet.
