Wedding- The Guests

I have always wanted a small and intimate wedding. I never wanted to stand in a receiving line and shake hands with my parents friends on the most important day of my life. Instead, I wanted to be surrounded with people who really loved Kevin and I and who have played a major role in our lives. I didn't want to be exclusive or snobby about having such a small wedding. I truly wanted to feel like everyone in attendance wanted to be there, and didn't feel obligation.

We weren't sure how our wedding would turn out, but we were so happy with it. There was no pressure all day, just all of our favorite people in one place.

If I could do one thing different with my wedding it would have been to not have a receiving line- I love that you did that! Great pictures- I cant wait to see the rest!
