Sneak Peek!

Our photogs blogged some sneaky-peeks of our wedding photos! They said we should have the rest of our pics in the next week. We're trying so hard to be patient. :)

clicky to see!

I especially love the last photo of Candice with Geoff's ring on her thumb - right before we walked down the aisle!

I'm Married!

Everything was wondeful, and we can't believe our wedding day and honeymoon have already come and gone. We enjoyed every minute!

Until I have the energy to post more pictures, here's a cute picture of the new Mr. and Mrs. on their Vegas honeymoon. How happy do we look? :)

(do not click the photo below - it's huge!)

Oh, and here's a fun little bonus picture. It's not the best photo of me, but be patient and soon I will post better shots of wedding details. :)

That's right, my uber-students Dawn and Karen crashed our wedding ceremony! They had google-eyes glued to their glasses. Hahaha! What a fun surprise to see these two lovelies at our wedding.
