Go to Rachel and Jesse Wedding, password is June11.

Some fun facts:
 - My mom and grandmother made my dress and all the bridesmaids' dresses.
 - My dad lost 50 lbs before this wedding.
 - Jesse lost his voice a couple of days before the wedding. 
 - We served communion to all of our guests during the ceremony. As a result, the wedding itself lasted about an hour and a half!
 - Jesse's nephew interrupted the mother/son dance.
 - Even though we had a photo booth, Jesse and I only got in there once!

Enjoy!

    Great pics! I also can't believe your mom and grandma made those dresses... that is so cool. I really liked how your bridesmaid dresses had corsetted backs-- those are so flattering! Congrats on a beautiful wedding.

    Thanks guys!!

     I know... I still can't believe they pulled that off, either. They kept saying never again, though, haha! It was so much work and SUCH a hassle! I definitely recommend just buying one. But on the other hand, I'm the only girl in the world with that dress.

    You have some really great pics!!  I, too, am amazed by the dresses!  Is sewing just a hobby for your mom and grandma?  ...If so, that's was hobby that they've mastered!

    Cschuma - Well, my grandmother made my mom's wedding dress when she got married, although her's was a LOT more simple than mine. Both of them have enjoyed sewing as a hobby, and they've tackled some pretty intense projects before. For instance, they made my dad's ordination stole (which he designed) for when he was ordained as a pastor, and that was a LOT of work. With my dress, we were trying to recreate one that I had tried on at Atlas Bridal, which is where we got the asymmetrical ruching idea. Finding a pattern was absolutely ridiculous. Neither of them think of themselves as being super creative - both like to just follow the instructions, so this was a big stretch for them! I can't believe how well they rose to the challenge.
