I am a 26 year old bride from Missouri. I met Andy through a mutual friend when we were in college. He was working on a graduate degree in St. Louis at the time and I was a senior at Missouri State University in Springfield. For the first 2 years we were together we lived 200 miles apart. We now have been together for over 4 years and have been living together for 2. He finally proposed on March 13th, 2008. He really is the best man I could ever have dreamed of finding. I was always the girl who thought no one could measure up to my daddy and I can't believe that I have managed to find a man who is just as amazing in my eyes as my dad (and my mom agrees.)
Our wedding is going to be gorgeous (at least I think so)!!!! We are having navy blue and pink as our wedding colors, with pale gold accents if needed. The wedding will be held at the church where I have grown up, been baptised, basically where my whole life has happened. My parents and grandparents were also married there. It's a beautiful old catholic church (built in 1876) which was renovated about 4 years ago. I am sooooo excited to have my wedding there! My bridesmaids are my sister (MOH), 2 friends from college, and one of my friends who I have known almost since the womb. My mom and I are having so much fun planning my wedding so far. It's getting so close!!
