I cannot believe it’s January 6 2012! On this day, five years ago, I walked down the aisle and said “I do.” I remember being so proud that we made it to one year, and we were no longer “newlyweds,” but it seems like just yesterday we were dancing the second line dance with boas and umbrellas in New Orleans.
For those of you who have been long time loyal blog readers, I apologize if you have to see some of the same pictures again, but I can’t help it, I loved my wedding and want to share it with you. I did a whole recap last year, so you can find it on our four year anniversary post. It was quite the crazy wedding day so I suggest reading it if you like wedding recaps! I also wrote a post during the royal wedding which includes some pictures from my big day.
It was a fun day to say the least. I love looking back on pictures over the last five years, it’s so funny to see how much we have grown and changed. I’m sure we will be saying the same thing on our 10, 15, 20, 25 and so on anniversaries. Bobby and I are so blessed to have found each other, and I thank God for making us specifically for each other. I leave you with the lyrics to a song I love, one that was beautifully sung at our wedding.
When God Made You
its always been a mystery to me,
How two hearts can come together,
And love can last forever.
But now that I have found you I believe,
That a miracle has come when God sends the perfect one.
So gone are all my questions about why,
And i’ve never been so sure of anything in my life
Oh I wonder what God was thinking,when he created you.
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because he made all my dreams come true.
When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.
Ooo ooo,I promise that wherever you may go, wherever life may lead you,
With all my heart I’ll be there too.
And from this moment on I want you to know,
I’ll let nothing come between us, and I will love the ones you love.
(guy):So gone are all my questions about why (girl echoes):about why and I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life
Duet:Oh I wonder what God was thinking when he created you,
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because He made all my dreams come true.
When God made you He must’ve been thinking about me.
He made the sun He made the moon,
To harmonize a perfect tune,
One can’t do without the other they just have to be together.
And that is how I know its true,
Your for me and I’m for you and my world
Just cant be right without you in my life
(guy) He must have heard every prayer I’ve been praying (girl echo)
I’ve been praying (both)He must’ve knew everything I would need
When God made you, He must’ve been thinking about me.
QOTD: What was sung at your wedding? If you aren’t married, what do you want sung at your wedding?

We didn’t sing anything at my wedding. We did however, play the Beatles “All you need is love” before the wedding, and when we were walking back down the aisle together, we played the Imperial March from Star Wars. We also toasted with Diet Mt. Dew instead of champagne bc we’re nerds like that.
Love all your wedding pics! No shame in posting them over and over, it’s a special day for you guys (Even though I’m a new reader and hadn’t seen them). Hope you have a wonderful anniversary and many more!
so funny! my husband would love that, he is obsessed with star wars
Happy anniversary to both of you! I hope you have a great day celebrating 5 wonderful years together:)

Love seeing your wedding photos! Happy anniversary! !
Happy Anniversary! I LOVE that we got married on the exact same day — too funny. And of course we honeymooned in Disney – how did we not see each other? 😉 I’m thinking we need to plan a trip for the 4 of us so we can hang out — no better place than Disney!
We had B Lee’s dad, aunt & uncle sing at our wedding – so cool. They sang “Household of Faith” and “When I Said I Do”. I still watch the wedding video just to hear them sing!
where did yall stay for your honeymoon? we were at the grand for a week. So funny we were there at the same time!
we had a friend sing household of faith, too! and she also sang “how beautiful”
We were at the Caribbean Beach – but this year we’ll be at the Grand (for part of the trip anyway!)
Neat story — we were married in the same church that my parents were…and Household of Faith was sung at their wedding too 🙂
You didn’t tell me you were going to be at the Grand?! When? What category did you book?!
I love this! So many beautiful pictures. Happy anniversary to both of you! 🙂

No one sang at our wedding, but one of my bridesmaids played her violin – she played Bryan Adams’ “Everything I do” as the guys walked down the aisle, Peter Cetera’s “Glory of Love” as the girls walked down the aisle, and Firehouse’s “Love of a Lifetime” as I walked down the aisle, which was also our first dance at the reception!
