The Relopement! The Recap!

This weekend Dave and I had our wedding celebration! Some of you are probably saying "what?! I thought you were already married?!" Well… yeah… in typical Dave & Leah fashion we didn’t do it quite by the book. We eloped at the town hall one year ago and for various reasons we didn’t quite feel it was the right time for a big ‘ol wedding celebration so we saved that for one year later. And that was this past Sunday!!
It was so nice. It really did feel like a real wedding. We had 130 people (I have a huge extended family), a ceremony with really nice readings, and we did our vows and rings for the first time. Dave and I were total cry babies!
The real pics won’t be ready for a little bit but here are some digital pics that friends and family have already sent us!
Me and "Mr. Craftster" as he’s known around here (also known as Dave!)
Our first dance — we danced to an acoustic cover of Such Great Heights by the Postal Service. The band who covered it is called Iron & Wine. It’s such a pretty song! You can hear a snippet here.
Me and my Dad dancing to Sunrise Sunset from Fiddler on the roof. (ack! it’s gonna make me cry again just thinking about it!)
Our flowers! We had pink gerberas and green hydrangeas. Our florist had us go to thrift stores (oh no! please don’t make us! ha ha) and pick up tons of old, small, mismatched vases for the flowers and then lots of people got to take them home.
And last but not least, my hot pink shoes!! Ha ha! They hurt my feet like hell but they were worth it!
The oh-so-awesome-we-owe-you-for-the-rest-of-our-lives Alison and Jerry did the music setup for us. We got to pick all our own songs and they played them through iTunes. Thank you guys so much!! The music and the dancing was my favorite part!
