YAYYYY!!!! The day has come to post the sweet images from my little sister's nuptules we planned! If I could pick one favorite thing from this event.... Obviously I loved the goats, though they did not love me. Yes, in the below picture I'm trying to catch a goat in my full wedding attire.
p.s. please disregard the picture quality of the above :) this came from my phone!
All joking aside, my sister is my best friend and I love her whole-heartedly, so this day meant so much to me. I love seeing her so happy!
Almost everything leading up to the wedding could have been considered less than ideal. Two months prior to the wedding we were venueless when the original venue double-booked. A month before the wedding we all held our breath as an Oklahoma tornado came within two miles and destroyed houses near the new venue. The outdoor rehearsal dinner was nearly blown away by 40 MPH winds. The groom's ring was nowhere to be found the day of the wedding. And to top it all off, unrelenting storms threatened to washout several months of tireless of planning. Yes, this could have been considered less than ideal, but Rebecca and Lucas laughed, smiled and were nothing short of content. It was so precious to see two people so incredibly joyful and certain about their decision to be together that nothing could discourage them from the love and excitement they felt that day.
Rebecca and Lucas are known for having reading dates. If they are driving in the car or just looking for a cheap date, they will read to one another. Cute in an endearing, quirky way, right?! So, we decided to play up the book theme when designing this budget conscious, DIY wedding. Almost every detail was hand crafted with book pages and fabric to add some cheeky character to the day.

Just to paint a nice little picture of what followed: Everything was set up, took it down, poured, set it back up, took it down, more rain, stops raining, set up, ceremony. Literally the last guest had gotten out of their seat and the sky opened up again and dumped more rain. And the entire time Reb and Lu are as happy as clams.
