Our Wedding: Rehearsal Dinner

Our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner took place at our wedding location, The Country Plantation House in Greenville, KY.

The day of the rehearsal was full of last minute wedding errands, nail appointments & finalizing packing for the weekend!  It was a hectic but fun day!  Darlene, Katlin & I got so much accomplished and I even got to spend a little time with my groom :) 

Once we arrived at the Plantation, everything started moving along quickly.  I have a heart arrhythmia that doesn't act up as much anymore but I guess the stress of everything caught up to me and I had an episode on the way downstairs to our rehearsal :/ So we ended up having to delay it for a few minutes while I waited for my heart to settle down!  That was really the only time I felt stressed so I guess my body just needed to get it out of its system!

We had been so busy the week of the wedding that I don't think the emotions of it had really hit me at this point.  When we started the rehearsal, I was fine but when it came time for my Dad to walk me down the aisle towards Jared something just changed.  I can't honestly put it into words but Jared and I both felt it!  I couldn't take my eyes off of his and I felt like I was floating in his direction.  It was the most perfect moment and I think that's what kept me at ease the whole wedding weekend. 

Our Bridal Party (My MOH had to miss this part of the night so Darlene stood in for her!)


They didn't even coordinate on purpose.



Dad & Darlene :)


This is when Brother Sams asked us our opinion on his tie for the wedding and pulled out a UK tie.  Gag me!  As you can see I have a happy UK fan bridesmaid that loved the idea lol!  Got to love a fun rivalry ; )

Such a special moment standing there with my Dad & Jared and it was even better the next day!

Happy :)

Love my bouquet of ribbons from all our showers!  Katlin did such an awesome job!  Funny story, during rehearsal the top just randomly fell off from all the weight, it was hilarious!



Can't believe we were hours away from becoming husband & wife!



Love. Our family of 5!

  4. You had such a busy rehearsal day! We are having ours early in the day so hopefully it won't be as hectic but I can imagine it will be a stressful day regardless.
