Landon and I got married June 16th, 2007 at Gethsemane United Methodist Church. Jim Marker performed the ceremony, Sam Meldon (a friend) opened the ceremony with a song, my father sang Heartland's "I Loved Her First," after walking me down the aisle, our friends and families were all present...it couldn't have been more perfect.
Our reception was held at Cardinal Hills Family Restaurant. Our first dance was to, "You Belong to Me" by Dean Martin - but we used the version sung by Jason Wade. I danced with my dad to "Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart. Landon danced with his mother to "Thank You for Loving Me" by Bon Jovi. We had a good DJ and played some of our favorite songs. The reception went by way too fast, but it was apparent that our guests had a blast.
When we were ready to go, I changed out of my dress so I didn't have to worry about getting it somewhere the next day. We were planning on leaving right about then - but got stuck for about another 20 minutes as we kept dancing. Every song, we would say "after this one..." but then the next song would be another favorite. After "September" by Earth Wind and Fire, we headed off to Mexico. I remember as Landon and I drove away from the reception we talked about how perfect it had all been.
