Okay lets get down to business and defeat the huns.. did they send me daughters when i asked for SONS! you're the saddest... (mulan intro)
Here are a few facts in the life of Miki or mostly some wedding highlights
I am pretty sure I had the best wedding ever. I don't mean to step on any toes, but seriously. It went a little something like this. Friday we hosted a beautiful intimate ceremony up in the mountains of Sundance. We chose to have our closest friends and our family up there to support us and enjoy one of the happiest days I have witnessed so far. I highly suggest getting married. After our sweet ceremony we had a delicious catered meal under a canopy of lights, that Jared and his dad set up for me. The 3 course meal was full of toasts, laughing, tearing up, and a good time had by everyone! I believe the credit of this photo goes to Ms. Mary Bess.

Saturday night we had our reception. I know a few friends that came to the ceremony didn't make it up to the reception. I wish that they would have. The reception was so much fun, this turned out perfect. Since Friday was like the ice breaker, everyone was low stress on Saturday, and we were able to talk to all of our guests and enjoy the reception! I also would recommend this layout, it's hard to imagine planning a 2 day wedding, but why wouldn't you want the best decision you could possibly make to be celebrated for more than a few hours? There was live music which meant dancing; slow dancing, dirty dancing, line dancing, square dancing and my FAVORITE was our dance circle. Those pictures would be priceless. CANDY so much yummy candy that was open to everyone. Then there was the photo booth where most the fun happened! We even beat the record of 21 people in the photobooth. We had 24!!But then Josh and Clayton one upped us with 26 people in their photo. PLUS the delicious food. All of Jare's family made us cupcakes, desserts, and croissant sandwiches that were gobbled up.
The guest book had all the photos from the photo booth, and sweet messages everyone wrote to us. Jared and I read this after our honeymoon, and each day since. It was the BEST idea invented even better than the toaster! Every ones pictures cracked me up. I seriously have looked at this book like 100 times in 3 days.
Then to top it all off, Shia attended the wedding. Love that dog. Best surprise Jared ever had for me.
Lastly all of or friends/ family stayed the night Saturday after we left, and celebrated. I think this was one of the best things we did. Everyone had such a great time, and they got a mini-vacation. Seriously it was a huge cabin, and the stories I have been hearing make me so happy! Everyone was able to stay up and that was mine and Jared's gift to everyone that helped us make our wedding perfect.
I don't get the pictures back for a few weeks from our photographer, so I'll put those up soon. Keep checking back OK? I also am planning to put up all the honeymoon stories + pictures this week too! Hip Hip HOO-RAY for blog updates!
Also if any one of you have any pictures from the wedding. I would love to see them even if they aren't of me =) PLEASE!
