"The Wedding" Means: A Talent Show

Singing and dancing were quite abundant the entire weekend - even when you least expected.

"The Wedding" Means: Displays of Public Affection

Yes, we were getting married and you would think that we would be the only ones smooching and hugging... but no no.. many of our guests were feeling touchy feely as well.  Guess it was all the love in the air :).

"The Wedding" Means: Polishing up on your Public Speaking Skills

Who knew so many of you were such talented public speakers!  We had papa TB, papa Shinnick, the Shinnick family patriarch, the Shinnick siblings, the Gamecocks, our matchmakers and roommate pay tribute to us.  Thanks guys!

"The Wedding" Means: Many Fun Accessories

Everyone did a great job of accessorizing their attire throughout the weekend. We had masks, beads, panama hats, flip flops, bandanas, socks, plants, umbrellas, fangs and who can forget the cheeseburger hats!

What it Means to Us

Over the year that we planned our wedding, we put many many personal things on hold and always said, "We'll get to that after the wedding".  It seemed that our life was split into two time periods, before the wedding and after the wedding.  It was such a turning point, that every time the wedding was mentioned it became "The Wedding".  A proper noun, sometimes cursed at, sometimes wanting to give up on, but at the end was all worth it.

Now that we're in the "after the wedding" time period, reflecting on that weekend makes us realize that the it was an amazing weekend spent with the most important people in our lives.  Every person there meant so much to us and we couldn't have pulled off such a great time without all of you.  Aside from all the mushy gushy stuff, this reflection on the wedding weekend made us realize that the wedding also meant so many other things.

Stay tuned to find out exactly what these other things are........
