2. when you knew he was the one: self explanatory.. but how and when did you know?
3. proposal: how it happened, how long were you engaged for? was it a total surprise?  pictures of that... etc.
4. the ring:  tell us about it! did you pick it out? did he? pictures! tell us about his ring too!
5. engagement/bridal pictures: let's see em!
6. the colors: show some of the flower and colors you used
7. the dress: was it what you always imagined? did you have it made for you? white or ivory?
8. the little accessories: you know, veil? shoes? jewelry? what did your bridesmaids wear?

10. the cake/food: i love food. so tell me about what you had at your wedding!
11. your song and/or the first song you danced to at your wedding: share a music video or lyrics if you can!
12. favorite part of the day and least favorite part of the day: can be anything.
13. honeymoon: where did you go? was it good?  ;) haha...jk.
14. thoughts on marriage: what is the easiest/hardest part? if you could change anything, what would it be?
15. first place that you lived together: pics if you have them!
16. kids: do you have any yet? if not, when do you plan on it? how many do you want? any tips on good/bad birth control?
17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

The main colors that I used for my wedding were red and white and poka dots, but I also used ivory and black.

I knew from the start what my flowers were going to be. I have loved Calla Lilies for as long as I can remember. I had seen in a magazine a picture of a bouquet wrapped with big leaves instead of ribbon. I really didn't want the ugly ribbon in my bouquet, so I went with giant calla lillies for me and my bridesmaids, and then a rolled red rose petal, which actually doesn't really look like it sounds, at least not to me anyway.

I thew in one little splash of yellow to honor my mother who was there in spirit. It turned out so great to use that bright red because even though you never know what Utah weather is going to be like in September, the weather was just perfect, everything was still so vibrant and beautiful.
