For our children
Jeremy and I are holding out to have our wedding in our backyard when we buy a house. Something I feel very strongly about. Theres something about making the happy memories in our own pace. I wouldnt want the memories to be in a hall.
SO, Jeremy and I have already started our family. Our children will be able to be apart of the wedding and be able to witness mom and dad saying our vows.
Here are some ideas on how we plan to include them.
* Family Table Include your children in your head table or have a table just for you guys.
Special Dances After the first dance, have a father and daughter dance and mother and son dance. Kids can dance together as mom and dad have our first dance.

"What is a Family ?"
A family is .....
The sweetest feelings
The warmest hugs
Trust and togetherness
The stories of our lives written on the same page
The nicest memories anyone has ever made
Hearts overflowing with all the years
Being there for one another
Supporting and caring
Understanding, Helping, Sharing
Walking life's path together
And making the journey more beautiful because .....
We are a family .....
And a family
a run through
makes kids more comfortable on the
big day? Also introducing them to
the photographer avoids the
"Who's that guy?!"
there is nothing that any of you can ever say that will not be met with unconditional love.
So is the bond of trust that your parents establish with one another, and extend to all of you this
Children step forward and receive their gift

meet my ladies
So Jeremy and I dont have alot of friends, and we are okay with that. We find the few, true, good friends there are out there and hold em tight !
So here we are ....
Amanda~ aka Manner
She has been my best for like 10 years ! wow its been 10 years already ...
Amanda has always been there when I needed her the most. Jeremy and I even moved away from home for 3 years and Amanda was my only frind to fly out to visit ! Even when we were far apart she made me feel like she never left my side. I am forever greatful to have such a friendship LOVE LOVE LOVE !
Oh my Megan, my sister. Well half sister really. I never even knew I had a sister till grade 8 ! I always always wanted a sister. Being the only girl and the oldest, I would wish for a sister when i was little, little did I know that I already had 3 ! Megan is less then a year younger then me so we just clicked right away. So it wasnt even a question that Megan had to be apart of such a big day !
my only issue is, is that my two fav girls in the whole world, would rather not hang out for more then a hour at a time. UGH buuut I know that they will try for me lol we are all grown up BAHahahaha
The dresses I want to all be different, like this picture. But green !
ceremony....da, da, da da !
When I seen this picture I just knew it was the way our ceremony will be. I love how its different. How we would be surrounded by the ones we love most and how they would all get a front row seat.
I would use hay bales draped with fabric, but thats just a thought.
We would have different ones but I think this would be nice for Jeremy
You have already given me the two greatest gifts of my life:
your love, and our beautiful child.
Today, it is my honor to become your wife/husband.
I promise to continue building our family together,
celebrating our joy, comforting one another in hard times,
and strengthening our family's future.
I vow to love and cherish you for all the days of my life.
Today I pledge to you what has already been yours for so long -- my eternal love.
As we have always done, I promise to walk hand-in-hand with you through life's journeys.
No matter what lies in our path, it will be our path, together.
In the joys and troubles that lie ahead of us, I will be faithful and loving to you.
This is my solemn vow.
~ maybe add a touch of us ~
Let this ring be a symbol of my promises to you and a reminder of my devotion to you. I am honored to call you my husband.
*** I think it would be neat if jeremy picked his own ***
These rings are a symbol of the unbroken circle of love. Love freely given has no beginning and no end. May you find in one another the love for which all men and women yearn. May you grow in understanding and compassion.
These rings mark the beginning of a long journey together. Wear them proudly, for they are symbols which speak of the love that you have for each other.
