It was Perfect.

What does a couple want most on their wedding day?

Perfect weather? Sunshine? Beautiful greenery? The minister to get their names right? Family and friends full of love for the couple getting married? What if I told you we had all of that and more?

Tony started the day by telling me that a couple weeks ago when we were worried about all the thunder storms and rain that was happening up here, it was really just God’s way of planning for our wedding. Because look at all the greenery and flowers around.

How do I begin to tell you the ways that everyone rallied around and handled everything so that I felt so pampered and spoiled? How Tony’s parents drove Grace and me to the hike’s starting point? How Steve, Grace — and, well everyone, really — took so many incredible pictures and another pair of friends did an amazing job videotaping the ceremony and celebration. That a mile long pre-ceremony hike (longest wedding aisle, ever, by the way) is the perfect way to settle any wedding jitters. How the minister created the most perfect ceremony we could have ever wanted, including a couple of spontaneous laughs to break the tension. That I was able to get my mom on my cell phone so she could be present throughout the entire ceremony. That Tony made the most adorable miniature wedding cake and somehow managed to get it up the mountain and surprise me with it. That every member of the party did something that made them invaluable to have had there and how grateful I am to have had them there.

Or maybe … the only thing a couple wants on their wedding day is to say their vows to the one person they love most in this world. And everything else is just icing on the cake. So to speak.

  19. Kristin

    Wow! Everything went so beautifully. You looked stunning (even in your hiking boots) and Tony is ever the handsome groom. Congrats ya’ll. Wished I could have been there *sniff*

  20. I was gonna say that sure looks a lot like Hilo Hattie and then I see the bag too : ) Great taste!
    You are a the loveliest bride….SO BEAUTIFUL. What a nice location. Did it have a special meaning to you two?
    The later pic with the rings didn’t even show your bruised finger!
    What in the world is Tony doing?! Holding his bruised balls or something?lol! You are so funny!

  21. How beautiful. I am loving the dress, it is/was gorgeous.

    I looked at all the pics and love the cake Tony made, what a sweetie he is.

    But I have a question…

    Is the tub of lube gone already? :mrgreen:

  22. Oh, Jammie. I swear, as I was flipping through the photos, I started to cry! That was so beautiful!! Thanks for sharing that.

    And good for you for wearing out Tony! πŸ˜†

  23. Congratulations!!!!!!

  24. 😯 Jammie, you are GO’GEOUS!!:shock:(and Tony doesn’t look too darn bad either!!)

    Seriously, you both look absolutely stunning in the photos… and I dig the matching fabric (his shirt is the same fabric as your dress, right?) Anyway, the very best to you both as your start your life together. I gotta go blow my nose.

  25. geewits

    Wow! Nice. I could hear the birds chirping.

  26. Jammie J.

    Natalie, Thanks! Unique and personalized are definitely adjectives I would use to describe our wedding. πŸ™‚

    Inanna, thank you so much. It was such an added bonus that we got to meet you a week before we got married. Almost like an early present. πŸ™‚

    Michael, Thanks for your kind words … you always have them on hand for me.

    TCJ, yep, the hike was one mile long. Nah, I wouldn’t have wanted him to carry me down the mountain. Although he did carry me over the threshold later that evening. πŸ˜€

    Trashman, ohhh, whatever dude. I promised you it won’t cut into my stalking time.

    Saija, awww, thanks. *hands you a tissue*

    Marigold, I’m sorry my doing “it” is bothering you. πŸ˜›

    Saija, Thank you. (hug)

    Marigold, Flickr bothers me. They limit the albums and I really don’t wanna pay for something or open ten million different accounts. Sorry. πŸ˜₯

    Boo, you make me laugh … πŸ˜†

    Ashley, awww, thanks. πŸ™‚

    Tammy, I was so worried that I was gonna look worried in the pictures. Heh. Funny, huh?

    Pei Yun, thanks … πŸ˜€

    Gooch, right here, in the comment section. Go for it!

    Grace, Yay, indeed. Sure go ahead and post. Thanks for waiting.

    Marissa, it was the sun! Seriously, I have sunburn dandruff again.

    Kristin, it did go beautifully. And Tony was so handsome. And I can’t believe he’s my husband. That’s just so weird.

    Sandy, I love Hilo Hattie’s stuff. Castle Rock is where he proposed to me.
    πŸ˜† I don’t know what he’s holding/doing. Poor thing. πŸ™‚

    Angi, isn’t that cake the cutest thing? I couldn’t believe he did that.
    You’re funny with your question. :mrgreen:

    Beth, I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. (hug)

    Leese, thanks!!

    Cootera, I think we were both glowing, and yes, our outfits were the same fabric. Tony was so happy he started complaining that his smile muscles hurt. On top of everything else hurting. πŸ˜†

    Geewits, we were actually higher up than some of the birds. Kind of funny, huh? πŸ™‚

  27. That’s what I would want my wedding to be like, simple yet beautiful. Congratulations, Tony and Jammie. You two are so perfect for each other. I hope you spend the rest of your lives making each other happy. πŸ™‚

    I want to cry now. It all seemed so sweet. Best wishes to the newlyweds!

  28. Seamus

    Wow! Just wow! 😯

    Gorgeous bride!
    Handsome groom!
    Lots of intrepid friends!
    Perfect day!


    BTW – my favorite pic was the wedding dress and the boots – perfect!

  29. Okay, so your blog is gone.. and I only got here because I clicked recent comments… my computer or is this a common occurance?

  30. I finally got to look at the wedding pictures. Beautiful, but why are you making out with Lynn?!

    Also–Going to Sizzler made me laugh and laugh. That is so ….

  31. Congratulations, y’all!!

  32. JadedManiac

    Congratulations!!!! woo hoo!:mrgreen:

  33. Big tears from tinyhands. Congrats to both of you.

  34. Redfred

    Yay… err last… thanks for posting on Tuesday the one weekday I don’t bloody check…. Oh well Last is just as good as first for such a fab topic…

    :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:CONGRATULATIONS Mr. & Mrs. H….. :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    The pictures are awesome, especially the one of you looking out from the top, still in your boots! and #3305, the joy on your faces really brought warmth to my heart. By the way the one of the minister doesn’t make her look younger than you just about 3 feet shorter… Was Grace there too? just out of shot…:lol:

    May your marriage be long and fruitful, you have to catch up with those fish!

  35. Tony

    :mrgreen:I love my sweetie…so I married her…so she is all mine until death do we part…nananananananananananana…I am ready for some more…XXOXOXOXOOX

  36. astroknight

    Very nice and all the best to the new Mr. and Mrs. H. πŸ™‚

    The last picture would say a lot more if the empty bottle of lube was sitting in front of Tony… :mrgreen:

  37. boo

    Tony, you old horn dog 😈

  38. cat

    i have a soft spot for people who just got married this summer. πŸ™‚

    your blog was gone last night! so i am commenting now!!!!!

  39. Hey I just noticed… they have only been married 96 hours and already Tony is sleeping on the couch, welcome to married bliss 😯 :lol::lol::lol:

  40. Jammie J.

    Veronica, you know, the hike kind of made it a bit more complicated. But, I think it was worth it.

    Seamus, the boots have only ever been worn on the hike to Castle Rock (when he first took me there a couple years ago). Unbelieveably, they still had the dust from that hike on them.

    Ashley, my server company is having problems, I guess. Clicking the recent comments or the post title will get you here for now. πŸ™‚

    Marigold, well, because I’m the favorite now, of course, that deserves a make out session, don’t you think? πŸ˜›
    I love Sizzler. But they didn’t take AAA discount. Stupid Sizzler.

    Nina, thanks sweet lady. πŸ™‚

    Trogers, rockin’ awesome!

    JadedManiac, Woohoo indeed! πŸ™‚

    Tinyhands, thanks dude!

    RedFred, well, I posted as soon as I could. Sorry it messed up your schedule.
    Grace was the one holding my mom (on the cell phone). Thanks for your kind words and I laughed about the 3 feet shorter comment. πŸ˜†

    Tony, and you’re all mine until death do we part. *sniffle* I love you, babe.

    Astroknight, some things are better left unshown, don’t you think?

    Boo, *snickering*

    Cat, we can thank my server company for the blog downtime. Fortunately, I backed it up last Friday in case something happens. (hug)

    RedFred, he said his back was hurting him. πŸ˜†

  41. Wow–that was a beautiful wedding; the dress was stunning, the cake was beautiful, the view was breathtaking. You look like a princess–right down to the happily every after. πŸ™‚ I’m so happy for you!


  42. Martine

    Congratulations! The pictures are great. You look beautiful!

  43. Wow! What a lovely wedding. You looked beautiful. I’m so happy for you. Congratulations!!!

  44. cat

    how come your site is always down at night? is it just me?? is it my home computer?! are you trying to keep me away, woman?:shock:


  45. Jammie J.

    Aimee, hey woman! Thanks. πŸ™‚

    Martine, Steve and Grace did such a great job on the pictures, didn’t they? πŸ™‚

    Tara, I still can’t believe how smoothly things went and what a perfect day it was. Wow. πŸ™‚

    Cat, well, there was that dream I had about you while on my honeymoon …

  46. J.
    You are the most beautiful bride. I’m so glad things went so well I had been thinking of you and hoping it was all you had wished for. I’m guessing the pump action is what caused Tony to be exhausted the next day πŸ˜‰ God bless you two and thanks so much for sharing your special day!

  47. Jammie J.

    Lillie, thank you so much for your kind thoughts and words. πŸ™‚ (hug)

  48. That was really great!!! I loved looking at the pics too, my fave is you on the rock in HIKING BOOTS hahahaha!!! :mrgreen:

  49. Jammie, you look positively stunning. An absolutely beautiful bride! I love the way you did the wedding, and the setting was phenomenal. You’re right about the vows. For me, it was the most important thing that I’ve ever done. To say that I’m happy for you is an understatement. You and Tony really seem to work well with each other, and I hope that y’all manage to get really wrinkly and old together. Congratulations, Mrs. Tony!

  50. Jammie J.

    Seven, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope you’re doing okay?

    Patty, I could hardly say them, they seemed to monumental and … well, life changing. Thank you for your kindness and well wishes. They mean so much to me. I know you know …
