this is a picture of me in my dress by the river
i loved my shoes, they were so perfect for me. silver with starfish, two of my favorite things!
these are our rings. mine is a pretty simple band and matt's has a dragon design on it, so perfect for him.
i attached my great grandmother's cameo to my bouquet for my something old :)
we had a sand ceremony where we each poured a different color sand in to a large vase. we have it on display in our living room and i love having it there. it's such a beautiful reminder of how our two separate lives have become one :)
here's a picture of us :)
matt is a diabetic so my sister made a sugar free cake for him. she managed to make one that was not only cute but super delicious!
one of my best friends who attended had celiac disease so we also had some gluten free cupcakes so she could enjoy some dessert :)
we had two favors: small boxes with personalized candy and bookmarks that i had laminated. they say now join your hands and with your hands your heart. this was my favorite thing we did. we both love to read and shakespeare is one of matt's favorite poets. it was really special to incorporate those things in to our day :)
and finally some of our cards made out to the newly married tortolini couple :)
