W.P.O.T.D. - Family Pics - My favorite candid

This is one of my favorite candid pictures taken by my cousin Melinda White, a.k.a. Doodah. We are the seven grandchildren of Harold and Mary Ruth Corbett. (From L to R: Cady Ruth, Carrie, Ben, me, Casey, Amy, and Christie). We had lots of fun growing up together -- despite living in Michigan and Florida!

W.P.O.T.D. - Family Pics - Jeff and Jacqui

One of the greatest blessings of our wedding day was having our family surrounding us. They have supported us all of our lives, and we would not be where we are today without them.

Jacqui is Jeff's older sister who lives in Texas, and we were thrilled to have her share our day with us. She surprised us with her attendance... We did not know that she would be joining us until a few days before the wedding. We love you, Jacqui!

W.P.O.T.D. - After the ceremony

Jeff teases me because I turned to walk down the aisle before Larry declared "You may kiss the bride". I was ready to get on with the show and start the party!

W.P.O.T.D. - The ceremony

Most of the ceremony music was recorded by The ZOE Group -- a praise team from Nashville, TN. Their music has meant so much to me in my life. I intended for the music to tell a story. The guests were seated to a selection of music sung by Zoe, the grandmothers walked down the aisle to Zoe's "Find Us Faithful", the mothers walked down the aisle to "Nocturne" (written and recorded by Billy Joel), the bridesmaids walked down the aisle to "Magnificat" by Zoe, I walked down to the aisle to "The Greatest Commands" (sung by three members of the Livonia church), Jeff and I lit the unity candle to Zoe's "He's always Been Faithful", and the recessional music was Zoe's "Shout Hallelujah".

W.P.O.T.D. - Walking down the aisle

I wasn't nervous until the few moments before I walked down the aisle with my dad. The bridesmaids had lined up and were walking down the aisle, and I was alone with my dad. We shared a special moment and then we were off!

W.P.O.T.D. - Pre Ceremony

One of my favorite moments was being surrounded by my bridesmaids as they helped me with my wedding gown. I don't have a picture with all the bridesmaids, but in this picture my mom and sister Amy are discussing the bustle.

And as an added bonus, here is a second picture. Of all the pictures that I wanted of our wedding day, I knew that I wanted a picture of my beloved grandmother Nano and me. This picture captures the love between grandmother and granddaughter.

Wedding Picture of the Day

To my blog readers who have been patiently waiting for more wedding photos:

We received all of the wedding photos from our photographer. He did a wonderful job, and I am very happy with the pictures. I am still sorting through the pictures, and as I am organizing them, I thought that it would be fun to release a "Wedding Picture of the Day". Here's the first one. Thanks to my brother for doing some editing on this particular photo... Can you guess what he changed?

Jeff and I are doing well. His house is on the market now, and hopefully mine will be on the market in January. All of the wedding thank you notes have been sent, and if you gave a gift and didn't receive a thank you note, please let me know! We don't want to miss anyone!
