The photos are finally here, and I am so thankful we chose Nick Key Photography to capture our day. I started going through the gallery to see which ones I wanted to post on here, but because I love them all, it was too hard to narrow it down. So I've decided to break it up into three posts: pre-ceremony, ceremony, and reception. Without further ado, here are the photos of the pre-ceremony.
We had our outdoor ceremony and reception at Champion Trace Golf Club. The weather forecast was calling for a 90 percent chance of rain up until the day before, which had us all biting our nails, but the weather ended up being perfectly bright and sunny.
My pretty maid and matron of honor, Dash and Becca. Becca arranged for us to have our hair and makeup done at the clubhouse, so we all enjoyed being pampered while drinking mimosas.
Meanwhile the boys had fun playing poker.
This is such a sweet moment between Micah and his best man (and cousin) Ryan.
During high school, my mom would blow-dry my hair every morning before school. Having her there to help me get ready for my wedding was special.
He is devastatingly handsome.
Micah with his groomsmen: Adam, Ryan, and Jared.
Micah with all of his boys. This group consists of his best friends from high school, college, and now. They traveled from all over to attend our wedding, including Alabama, Oklahoma, Iowa, and California. The fact that they came so far to be here on our special day was not lost on us--we were so honored.
Micah's wonderful parents, Steve and Lorie. Steve was the officiant for our wedding.
With his beautiful sister Brianna.
And our sweet flower girl and niece, Jaylee.
These two are the sisters I never had--they have been there through it all for nearly twenty years. I couldn't imagine anyone else I would want standing next to me on my wedding day.
And only with your closest girlfriends could you laugh like this.
My pretty mom.
My sweet, handsome dad.
My brother: the person I always looked up to and wanted to be like.
I was walking back to the clubhouse from taking pictures when I heard, "Ms. Wooten!" I looked ahead to see Britani, a favorite former student, walking down the drive. I couldn't believe my luck! She's now about to finish college and become a teacher. I'm so proud of her.
And this girl, a dear friend for nearly a decade now. She traveled all the way from Canada to be here for our wedding. It was such a precious gift to spend time with her.
