2 Years Ago Today

I married my High School Sweetheart! 
I've decided to post a few memories in honor of the beg day...and some of it is, in fact, owly related. 
Crazy, right?!

It stormed horribly through our rehersal...luckily the chapel was covered and we stayed not soaked.
On wedding day, it was beautiful!  Everyone said it was the perfect temperature, but I was a bit cold, especially since I was in a sleeveless dress.  But the excitement of the day helped me ignore the temps.  The dogwoods were blooming and the trees were so lush and green.  It was exactly how I pictured it.
 One of my fav pix.

 The Dogwood's were so pretty.

My bouquet.  Silver Sparkely Shoes! 
And yes I walked thru the woods in my dress.  I'm not some priss pot...the best pix came from us in the woods.  And I like dancing with leaves and twiggs in my shoes.

I'm probably the only bride who could really care less about a manicure before her wedding.

We had a Memory Table set up at the entrance to the chapel for those loved ones who couldn't make the wedding in the flesh.  We felt them present in our hearts.
We lost 3 Grandmothers the year before our wedding.  The bottom picture is my Dad's Mom (MawMaw) and the top picture is of my Mom's Mom (Grandmother).

Sam's Granny (his Dad's Mom, bottome picture) passed away a few days after I'd decided to stop by one day and tell her that we were getting married.  She was so very excited and told every hospice nurse that came to care for her.  His Mom's Dad (Granddaddy, top picture)passed away the December before we started dating, and unfortunately I never got to meet him.
Sam's MawMaw also passed.  She took care of him and his sister when they were growing up.

You can't see here, but our minister was wearing sunglasses!  Hilarious!

I cut out birds in the colors of the wedding and used them as a "guestbook."  We bought a Maple Tree that we would plant in our yard after the wedding and put the signed birds in a scrapbook.  The birds haven't made it into the scrapbook, but the tree survived horrid winds and torential rains and 3 months in its pot and drought.  Its currently leafing out now in our backyard!
Our Cake, w/ Owly cake toppers.
It was sooo tastey!  Strawberry filling with whole strawberries between the layers.

Daddy's little girl.

Yes, Leslie, I gues it was.

My hair...I found some birdy pins on Etsy.
This was a Barred Owl I rehabbed and we were able to release during the reception.
