I am engaged to a man named Wesley, who is currently enlisted in the Texas Army National Guard. I really love weddings or anything that has to do with love. This is my way of sharing my ideas and general love of weddings. This blog is full of my personal photos, photos of weddings/engagements/or couples that I absolutely adore as well as quotes and songs and stories. Thank you for checking it out!

My Love

I’ve known Wesley since I was a freshman in high school (since 2006ish). We’ve been friends since then and I always knew that I could talk to him about absolutely anything, and I know that he knew that the offer was the same for him. He dated three of my closest friends while we were in school and I dated Austin from sophomore year till after I graduated. I can honestly say that he was one of my best friends. He always knew how to make me laugh (still does) and he never failed to make me feel better. We lost touch after I graduated and I honestly never thought that I would get to see him, let alone hang out with him again. I’m so glad I was wrong. We started talking again a around November of 2011, casually sending messages over Facebook. I was trying things with Austin again and he picked up on my signals when things started going down hill. He comforted me, but it was never over baring like so many different people were. He allowed me to vent and explain every feeling I was having. It was like he understood exactly what I was going through. My feelings for him only grew stronger at this point. We started texting as soon as he went out and bought a phone (which at the time, I didn’t know had anything to do with him wanting to be able to talk to me all the time.). We were supposed to go bowling one week. But neither of us wanted to wait to see each other. He even came in while I was working and talked to me for a little over an hour. Later that week, on December 11th, 2011 I showed up at his house for the first time. I was holding so much back and I could tell that he was as well. Then I realized that we didn’t need to and we kissed. My whole heart was his from that moment.

From the Maid of Honor down to the Ring Bearer, there are laundry lists of responsibilities associated with each role that no one in their right mind would (or should!) ever know by instinct. In this advice series, I am going to be posting a breakdown on the various duties for everyone involved in the wedding party.
 
Ushers
Typically, ushers are not photographed with the bridal party, although they are important—however, not absolutely necessary! Ushers are good friends of the groom who help greet guests and get them to their seats. According to the basic standards of etiquette, there should be one user for every fifty guests. Duties include the following:
Arrives at the location early to help set up, light candles, etc.
Greets guests upon arrival and assist with seating
Passes out programs and encourages mingling

Groomsmen
Like bridesmaids, groomsmen should be the groom’s closest friends and/or family (brothers, cousins). Traditionally, if the bride has any brothers, they are included in the wedding as groomsmen. Duties include the following:
Assists Best Man however they can
Helps Best Man plan and pay for the bachelor party
Greets guests at the reception and encourages mingling
Attends the wedding ceremony rehearsal and rehearsal dinner
Assists the Best Man in helping everyone get on the dance floor

In this new advice series, I am going to be posting a breakdown on the various duties for everyone involved in the wedding party, starting today with the Maid of Honor.
Maid of Honor
The maid of honor has one of the most important (and demanding) jobs out of the bridal party. Not only does she need to be responsible, she must be very close to the bride as well and be able to keep her cool, calm, and collected throughout the entire process. Duties include the following:
Assists the bride with all wedding related shopping: the dress, bridesmaid dresses, accessories
Helps organize hair and makeup for the bridesmaids
Plans and hosts the bridal shower and bachelorette party
Witnesses and sign the Marriage Certificate
Attends the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner
Carries an emergency kit for the bride on the day of the wedding (although if you have a planner or day-of coordinator, they usually hold onto this)
Holds the bride’s bouquet during the ceremony
Stays by the bride’s side at all times and oversee the bridesmaids
Holds onto the groom’s ring during the ceremony
Helps make favors and address invitations
Gives a speech and toast during the wedding reception
Acts as air traffic control for the bride, wedding planner, and family
Gives the bride both a shower gift and wedding gift
Helps out however and whenever she can
Encourages guests to get on the dance floor during the reception
Ask Wesley and I things

Help a girl out y’all!

My parents took Wesley and I to Oklahoma to a casino for my 21st birthday which was on March 30th. This was my first time and Wesley’s first time gambling so they thought it would be a nice way to celebrate. We spent the 29th at the slot machines. We went and had dinner at Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar & Grill” where their live band sang me happy birthday and gave me a free CD. From there we went to the bar and waited for the clock to hit 12 so that I could order my first legal drink. We had about 45 minutes to kill so I went to the bathroom and I came out and sat next to my mom. As the 45 minutes finally passed, I order my first drink - which was a Pink Panther - while my dad photographed the entire thing. Wesley looks at me and tells me he loves me and happy birthday and then he asks me to dance. So, we step off to the side and start dancing. I’m giving him a hard time because it’s normally like pulling teeth to get him to dance with me in front of people. And we definitely had an audience. The song he choose for us to dance to was God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton. About half way through the song, Wesley kisses my forehead and asks me “Do you love me?” I reply with “Duh, of course I do.” And then the next thing I know, he’s down on one knee and he asks me “Will you marry me?” I was crying. He was crying. My mom was crying. Everyone was clapping and cheering. This was the most memorable and wonderful birthday I have ever had. I don’t think anything could top that.
And now, I am engaged to Gene Wesley Sparks III.
I want to make a video of questions or something on my NEW camera.
