Mark and I had our wedding ceremony in April of 2009. We wanted to keep it very small and intimate so we had the wedding in my parents' backyard - the house I had lived in since I was four. We were officially married at the JOP first in January so my grandpa was able to perform the ceremony for us at our April wedding. I was so overwhelmed with finishing school, working late hours at an emergency animal clinic, and growing a baby that I basically gave my family free reign to plan our wedding with input here and there on the big stuff. I am lucky to have some very creative crafty ladies in my family.
