a wedding story. - from a to z.

Are y'all loving the guest posts from all these FAB ladies on their BEAUTIFUL weddings?! I know I am! I feel so lucky that everyone has been so excited to share their stories with us! 

Today Jen from From A to Z is sharing her GORGEOUS wedding with us! She was one of the first bloggers that I became friends with when we both started blogging! And she's the SWEETEST

Hey ladies!  This is Jen at From A to Z.  I have really been loving Lauren's new blog series and I'm thrilled to be a part of it!  I hope you all enjoy our wedding story and I will definitely enjoy reliving it.  Here is our wedding story in pictures.

Gabe and I were married on July 17, 2010 in a beautiful Catholic Church that is in the neighborhood we both grew up in (yes, we grew up on the same street :) ).  We had over 400 (we both have huge Italian families) of our closest family and friends there to celebrate with us.  Along with 11 bridesmaids, 11 groomsmen, 2 jr. bridesmaids, a ring bearer, and a flower girl.  We had a FULL house!

A few of my favorites from the ceremony.
All my ladies
 Crazy guys!
I wanted pictures at the park I used to play at but it was not really a good idea in 90 degree weather!

For the first time as husband and wife...
You can sneak a peak at my yellow shoes.
Card box, Monogram Door Hangers, Flowers (Lillies and Billy Balls), Seating Arrangements, Favors ( we also gave the traditional 5 almonds), and LOTS of cookies!
Our "fake cake" and cupcakes.  Only the top layer was real.  We made the cupcake picks.
Father-Daughter Dance
First Dance
Here are a few of my favorites from the day!
A Pre-Wedding Snack!

A little nervous before walking down the aisle!
The "D's"
They lived happily ever after - except when Mr. D doesn't put his clothes down the laundry chute!
Thanks Lauren for letting me share our Wedding story!

And those monogrammed door hangers! Too cute!
