My family's Bible that my cousin, mom, two aunts, grandma, and myself have carried down the aisle. 

Our 'pie bar' -- love this detail!

Our photobooth outside!

My sorority, Pi Phi, has a tradition of an arrow pin you attach to your bouquet throughout the day. My besties Shelby and Carolina who were Pi Phi's too gave it to me to use for the day!

All my favorite gals in one place!

Sweetest moment with my lovely mama!

Showing my gals when I was all ready!

Showing my dad once I was all ready!

Love my parents so much. What a blessing they are!

My parents and sister and I -- loved this moment!

Praying with my gals before the ceremony.

The moms lighting the candles!

We had the most precious ring bear and flower girls.

One thing I am so happy we did was taking communion with our parents. It was a great time to reflect and remember that Christ was the center of our day.

Nate's family.

Exchanging notes and gifts before the ceremony. We didn't see each other before and I'm so glad we didn't do that!

My dad and I swing danced for our first dance!

The mascot of our college, Willie the Wildcat, came to our reception which was so much fun! We are big K-State fans in our family :)

Love this view of the reception space.

Ending the night with a sparkler send off -- this was so dreamy!

Hey y'all!

Today I am *FINALLY* sharing some photos from our wedding! I can't believe we have been married for a month and a half now. It has really flown by! We had the best day ever at our wedding -- everything really came together just had I had envisioned it. I am so lucky and thankful to have so many amazing people around me to help me and share the day with me! Keep scrolling for some of my favorite photos. Just a warning -- there is a ton!

Our Vendors

Photographer -- Kayley Haulmark. Y'all Kayley is out of Oklahoma and she is incredible. Even though I got married in Kansas, I had fallen in love with her work and I just had to have her do our wedding. She is so amazing. If you are in Oklahoma, you DEFINITELY have to use her. Her photos are just stunning, and she is the nicest person ever to work with. She is so professional and talented and should be famous if you ask me!

Videographer -- we had a friend from school, Ellen Eldridge shoot our video. She was so great as well! She shot our engagement video, so we knew we loved her. She is so sweet, kind and also amazingly talented. She is out of Colorado, so if you are in that area she would be a huge recommendation!

Catering -- we used Blue Moon Catering in Wichita, KS. We had a taco bar with fajita chicken, beef, roasted veggies, rice, chips and salsa...all the fixings! It was really quite delish. It was a huge hit with our guests as well because we ended up not really having any leftovers. I really wanted to do something different and unique -- not the usual grilled meat, potatoes, green beans, etc. So I was pleased that this company could work outside the box! They are a big caterer in the area and really know their stuff, especially when it comes to big events!

Cake -- we used WOW Cakes in Wichita, KS for our cake. We had a three tier cake with two flavors -- vanilla almond buttercream with vanilla almond buttercream frosting and chocolate buttercream with chocolate buttercream frosting. It was truly amazing. I am not a huge cake person, but I personally loved our wedding cake! I can't wait until our first anniversary when we get to eat it again because it really was so good. We also did a pie bar. My grandma makes the most AMAZING pies and we are pie snobs in my family...meaning we know what the best pies in the world taste like and we don't settle for anything store bought or canned. So that made it difficult to find someone to cater enough pies for as many people as we were hosting at our wedding. We ended up having my grandma make a peach pie for Nate (his favorite) and we ordered several other pies from Sam's which were surprisingly the best we had sampled out of over ten different bakers. 

Hair/Makeup -- we actually all did our hair and makeup ourselves. My friend Shelby did my hair and did an amazing job. I plan to do an entire post on my hair/makeup because I did my makeup myself and loved how it turned out!

Venue -- our venue was called Stone Hill Barn in Augusta, KS. They are also so amazing to work with. We loved every detail about the venue from the guest house where all the girls got ready, the groomsmen lounge where the guys hung out, the outdoor ceremony location, the barn and reception area itself, as well as the staff. I highly recommend this venue if you're in the area!

I hope you all enjoyed this post -- thanks for reading if you made it this far! I couldn't make up my mind when I was selecting photos so I just ended up including all of my favorites. It was truly one of the best days of my entire life and it still feels like a dream that it all happened! The day went so fast, but I had so many special moments that I will remember forever. Thanks for checking out the post y'all!
