September 26, 2009 is the day Matt and I said I do. And it may be old news to everyone else. But I never got the chance to blog about it. So I wanted to blog about it so I could remember all the details forever.
September 25, 2009 was the day before the wedding and rehearsal was 1:00pm at Hillside Gardens. It was such a gorgeous day. I thought there would be no way I could possibly be blessed with two days of beautiful weather. Especially for all these outdoor events in Colorado. We did our rehearsal, it was fun to finally see how things would somewhat play out. Here are some pictures from rehearsal.
After rehearsal we met everyone over at Fargo's Pizza. It's always been a childhood favorite of Matt's so we couldn't think of a better place than Fargo's. Matt's Dad Larry had reserved the upper tables, and we all got our pizza and buffets. My mom had given Matt and I a couple of gag gifts and then Matt and I exchanged our gag gifts. But then I gave Matt a really cool gift of concert tickets to Skinny Puppy. He couldn't believe that I would actually want to go to something like that. We had good times at Fargo's.
After Fargo's the girls went to Matt's grandma's house for a lingerie shower. It was so much fun, thanks to Matt's mom for the great times and laughs. Here are some pictures from the shower. The one with the gum, I have 8 pieces of gum cause that is how many questions about Matt I got wrong...
After the shower my mom and I ran around like chickens with our heads cut off. We went to my Mom's hair stylist's hotel room and picked up Matt's groom cake, ran to Walmart and got all of our last minute details, then we ran home to crash. I knew tomorrow would be the biggest day of my life, but I laid in bed for a few minutes kissed Matt goodnight and fell asleep.
