Nathan & I got married on April 3rd, in his parent’s beautiful backyard in Tampa, Florida. We come from big families, (we’re both 1 of 7) – so our wedding was pretty family-involved. We had all of our siblings in the bridal party, including two of my sisters-in-law & two of my brothers-in-law. We are really close with both (families), and loved that we could include every single person. Nathan & his 6 siblings have grown up in the same house (in Tampa) their entire lives and always said whoever was to get married first “got” the backyard. Nathan was the one who proposed before anyone else so we were able to claim it! At first we weren’t sure if the backyard would work for both the ceremony & reception — but with lots (and lots) of help from both of our families, and long-time family friends, we managed to pull it off.
My shoes were bought at DSW awhile ago, they were supposed to be used for my older sister’s wedding but they ended up not matching her dress, so when my wedding rolled around I tried them with my dress and they fit perfectly!
