A Blonde Wedding: {Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner}


I'm so excited to finally get to share pics from the wedding with y'all! I decided to start with the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner pics and just go chronologically throughout the whole weekend, then on to the honeymoon...makes sense, I guess : )

My fabulous SIL Sarah was gracious enough to take pics of our rehearsal, so these come courtesy of her!


First, we have to talk fashion...I was in LOVE with my rehearsal dinner outfit! The dress is by Judith March and it's called the Keyhole Versatile Dress. I love the Judith March keyhole dresses because they allow you to change the collars out to create entirely new looks with the same dress. I wasn't crazy about the bright red collar that came with it, so I chose this one instead, the Stripes for Santana collar! The shoes are by Jessica Simpson, which I got on sale at Dillard's! The earrings are from Francesca's Collections.


We were married at Central United Methodist Church in Rogers (above) by our awesome Senior Pastor, Carness Vaughan. Pastor Carness has been so wonderful throughout the entire wedding planning process and was also our mentor and counselor throughout our marriage prep classes at church. I was so happy that he was available to marry us on the date we selected!


Saying our pretend vows

We're married! Welp, at least PRACTICING to be married, haha


Here's a shot of Ava the flower girl (our niece) and Cooper the ring bearer (my friend Rhyanne's little boy) as they practiced their walk. Things didn't exactly pan out during the actual ceremony with these kiddos, but they definitely worked it during rehearsal, haha!


Above is Stephanie, Stephen's youngest sister and my other new SIL, holding Ava and Lucas, our new little nephew. He is just the sweetest, best natured baby and definitely makes me excited for the day when we have our own little bambinos : )


After the rehearsal, we drove to Copeland's, site of the rehearsal dinner. We chose this place because the food is amazing and it was also where Stephen and I had our first date : )



This is my brother's sweet girlfriend Lauren, holding Cooper our ring bearer. She is so pretty and sweet and I think Cooper thought so, too! Haha! He seriously is just the cutest little kid...gaw!

So that's all for today! I'm going to try to space out these wedding pic days so that y'all don't get tired of all the wedded bliss : ) Coming up Thursday, we're heading to the salon! Pics of myself and the bridesmaids getting ready on the day of the wedding...fun times!

Be blessed, lovelies-

  22. First off- Congratulations! I just wanted to tell you something funny....

    I think I came across your blog randomly, but I can't remember exactly how, maybe through Kelly's blog? Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I laughed when I read this post. People I know are all over your blog! I was in band with Sarah and Stephen, and Carness used to be the senior pastor at my church in Little Rock!! Small world!
