The fresh, simple flowers were actually one of my favorite features. Steph used basil in the bouquets so everytime you were near one you could smell the sweet fragrance! So clever.
Having met through the navy, it was so neat to see some of the special traditions that were included in the celebration. I love that Lieutenant Shane wore his whites, that as they entered they walked through a sword brigade (not sure the real accurate title of this), and they cut their cake with a sword!
And even though the weather wasn't probably initially what they had in mind for their day, it held off just fine. The big top tent, space heaters, lights, candles...it all made for such a romantic evening. We kept saying we felt as if we were in a movie.
These shoes belong to some of the young girls in Steph's youth group class who helped in the ceremony. I just adore their colored converse look!
What fun friends...have I mentioned I love weddings??
