Wedding Season Begins

We have a lot of weddings to go to this summer and this past weekend kicked off the start of these weddings.  One of my best friends from college married the love of her life.  I am so happy for them!  Their wedding was so beautiful and we all kept talking about how it was soooo Martha.  Every detailed fit Martha's style and personality perfectly.  I also loved getting to hang out with all of my college friends once again.  We laughed so much and did lots of reminiscing of our days in the APT C.

Adorable way to do a guestbook!  I was told that Martha painted this tree. Every guest at the wedding stamped their fingerprints for the petals and wrote their names in the petals.
The truck you see in the background is the Taco Truck!  They served tacos for the reception and they were wonderful.

I lose it at every wedding when the father walks his daughter down the aisle.  I just can't handle it... Im pretty sure it has something to do with the fact that my father and I have always had such a special relationship and it reminds me of that special moment when he gave me away.  Also seeing the dad place the hand of his daughter into the hand of her husband gets me too.  Just that imagery of how life will never be the same she is literally being given away to another.  Wow the responsibilities of husbands!

They were so sweet throughout the whole ceremony.  Kyle had a huge smile on his face and Martha cried during the vows.  It was precious!
At one point during the wedding their families gathered around the couple to pray for them as Brandon Heath's "Love Never Fails" was played and sang.  This was one of my favorite moments of the ceremony.

After the ceremony Martha and Kyle went into the loft of this barn to have some time together and wave at their guests.  It was too cute!
Before the reception we had to do a photo shoot!  Ha ha!  We decided we looked like a girl band except no one can play instruments or sing.

While at the wedding we were able to get to know some of Marthas good friends from Nashville.  It was such a pleasure meeting Whitney Nall and Trish Squittieri.  They were the kind of people I know I could be great friends with if only there wasn't distance between us:(  


Finally a picture of all of APT C.   We had decided its been probably 3 years since we have all been together in the same place

We decided to make it official by singing the AOPi song for Kyle but what we didn't realize was that there were only 6 of us and none of us can really sing so lets just say it wasn't pretty but we got a good laugh however I think we might have scared Kyle a bit.

We all had a blast dancing and it was fun watching Martha and Kyle let loose after a long day

AOPi alpha O number one sorority!


Congratulations Martha and Kyle, we feel so blessed to have been a part of your special day!


  1. I love that picture of all of us sitting on the hay. I miss you all!

  2. I just knew you would blog about this and have tons of pictures! Martha looked beautiful, as did the rest of you. I love that dress, and I kinda did a double take in the picture of you and Cathy...we really do look alike sometimes :-)
