:: Wedding #1: Jamie and Matt -- Jamie used to work at FDLIC with us part-time while she was still in college, and now that she is graduated and her man got a job elsewhere, they have since moved to a different city. We miss her a lot, she was very bubbly and outgoing! It was great to see her marry her sweetheart on Saturday. Her wedding was very traditional/old school, which surprised me. I expected it to be very modern and sassy! The ceremony was held in a Methodist chapel, and they included a song and the unity candle. The vows were traditional. Her dress was beautiful but not what I expected for her either! Her color was Tiffany blue. We sat with three coworkers -- Allison (from my team), her mom Susan, and her friend Bec. We did not attend the reception, since we had to make our way to wedding #2!

|Jamie is always laughing -- so I love this one of her giggling during the ceremony!|
Vanessa is from the Philippines and is quite lovely -- very slim, with gorgeous curly dark hair. Their wedding was modern and she had a lot of beautiful details. They included some Philippine traditions as well, which was neat to see. Their wedding was at a place called The Grove, which is out in the county. The ceremony was outside and the reception was inside/outside there on the same property. They served Philippine finger foods, and had a small cake to cut (and cupcakes for everyone else). She was beautiful in a very simple, elegant dress with a purple sash, and Caleb wore a traditional Philippine white shirt.
|Vanessa loves to paint and do hand lettering...she made this Welcome sign that was on the entrance.|
|The chairs had fans handmade in the Philippines -- they were the favors, with the program attached|
|The arch where they stood was gorgeous with purple flowers of all different shade, |
and little glass globes of different sizes...the sun made them all sparkly! We were requested
to not take any photos during the ceremony, soooo...
