We opted to have a very small, intimate wedding ceremony at the church we attend. Joey and his family have attended the church for over 20 years and the pastor is a good friend of theirs. I've been going there with him for over 2 years and I have enjoyed the pastor as well so I knew immediately after getting engaged that I wanted him to perform the ceremony for us.
We had about 25 guests at the ceremony and they were either family or close friends. I also had the friends who attended the ceremony provide a service of some sort to me. :) They were happy to oblige.
My best friend from high school came all the way from Florida and I had her do my makeup. She came down for my bachelorette weekend and we talked about what kind of makeup I would need to buy and she provided the rest for me. I am clueless when it comes to makeup so I was thankful for her help!

Meanwhile, Joey was showing off his Transformers cuff links that I got him.
I had a friend arrange my and my maid of honor's bouquets and the boutonnieres for the men. I didn't have any other flowers but I absolutely loved the flowers that we did have.

|Pretty flowers! Garden roses, ranunculus, and calla lillies|
