I think that’s it for the wedding photos for now. Moving on to the day after.

  1. CONGRATS!!! Opryland is so nice, great pick for your first night as man and wife! I actually lived in Nashville for a few months, super fun place!

  2. Congratulations :) Wow that wedding cake looks beautiful! Ours was fruit at the top, vanilla in the middle and lemon in the bottom. So good. We had so much left too – it all went in our freezer 😀
    Have fun on your honeymoon!

  3. We had so much fun and we love our new daughter-in-law. We do want to spend more time with you and your new husband anywhere you prefer.
    Love always and blessings to you both and have a great time on your honey moon.

  4. Everyone is so happy! <3 Looks like a blast! Enjoy Mexico!
    Running – I did a 7 mile tempo run this morning on the Mt. Vernon Trail. Wasn't sure if I was going to manage an 8:00 (and under) with less than 6 hrs of sleep. Nailed it. :)
