Drew and Katrina's Wedding - Part One

{This post is written by the bride and groom, Katrina and Drew}

Katrina: Oh goodness! We are now officially married! It feels great!

Drew: What more could I ask for? I have the love of my life, a great god who has blessed me greatly, and we had tons of family and friends join us in celebration! :)

Katrina: Your right! Lets show them our wedding in three parts, the first will be the marriage, in our local home town church (indoors), the 2nd will be the beautiful wedding pictures taken outside, and the 3rd will be  the reception.

Drew: With cocktail hour :} ^^^^^^^^

Katrina: Ok, lets get started! :D

Drew: Sweety, why don't you tell them the budget, and the details first?

Katrina: Oh right! Well we had to have a budget (or so Drew said). I spent over half of it on my custom wedding gown, from Kleinfield (did you see me on the episode Say Yes to the Dress?). We invited 10 guests. :} We wanted to really keep in family and friends... NOW can we get started?? I am so excited to show the pictures!


So first off, we are finally married! (like I said above!) After 3 years of dating, he finally proposed ;)

My ring from the Southwest! I had my wonderful cousin (Saige) go with Drew to pick it out <3

My bridesmaids were lovely. Victoria (#25, and my sister), Saige (GOTY and my cousin) and Brooke (good friend, and retired GOTY) are all wearing custom dresses from lemonhead103 on They are strapless black sparkle dresses. Black shoes were a must, either high-heels, or flats. :) Their flowers were picked outside my bedroom window this morning. They are considered as weeds to most. :} It feels good to not have to spend big money at the florist.....and the flowers are still beautiful!

Drew: weeds. :}

Our beautiful little flower girl, was Rahel! She is quite the character! We showed her many dresses, and tried to make her pick. She told us she already had one all thought out! :} I asked her to show me, and she navigated me to Sylvieandbruno on Etsy, where she and I created a custom flower girl dress! It is adorable! Thanks to you Jessie! :D

Drew: There I am! All handsome in this custom suit from sodapopstreet on Etsy. It comes with so many items! I looked great! :D

Katrina: Yes, he did! Thanks again Katie! :)

Oh my. Couldn't get prettier, if I do say so myself. :D The dress is the "Kate Middleton" replica gown from Dreamworld Collections. It came with so many extras and I felt totally traditional (that is what I was aiming for!) My flowers, we a mix of store bought and garden weeds  flowers. :)

I just had to sneak the picture of Brooke crying (bottom left). She means so much to me. <3 I am glad to see that she felt the same way about me.

Putting the rings on! :D

Finally, we were wed! Everyone was clapping! I then decided to go ahead and throw the flowers, the reason many girls came today  a fun thing to do! I threw it...........and Primrose got it! :D She was blushing like a beet!
