Jenni Woodmansee

You guys, I'm still so happy that it's hard for me to even type words. like... a;sldkjf;alskdjf;alieuoiasjdlvkjnas;dlkfja;owiefja;lskdjg would be more appropriate!!! Just my hands going crazy on the keys because I can't believe this is really happening. I am married to Michael, our wedding day was the best wedding day there ever was and we live in this cute apartment- TOGETHER!! It's a wonderful life! I was without the internet for 2 weeks, so I feel so behind. As far as pictures go, I have what I have collected from other people. I am waiting on the professional pictures which are currently in my mom's hands and I think on their way to me. They are posted however on the photographer's blog. Brandon (at the temple), and Scott (at the reception), were both great!! The pictures are beautiful so far and I'm so grateful! I will share with you what I can right now, but mostly, I want to type my feelings about the day because this blog has somewhat become my journal. First of all, I'm just so completely in love with Michael. I have never met such a patient, kind, handsome person. Seriously, he has a heart of gold and I believe I am the luckiest girl alive. Sometimes, I still look at him, or look at old pictures and think... "no way, Michael and I made it, we are married". It's a miracle. A miracle that we've been waiting for
I am still in complete awe of how wonderful everyone was throughout the whole wedding business and on the actual day especially. Everyone! Family, friends, bridesmaids, groomsmen, everyone was so good to us and made me feel like everything was going to smoothly. ESPECIALLY MY MOTHER! She made our day happen. And let me tell you, our wedding day honestly was the best day of my life. I am so thankful that michael and I were able to be sealed in the temple. It was such an incredible experience and then the rest of the day was a real dream come true. I had so much FUN! that is the only word to describe it. FUN!!!
Our wedding party was GORGEOUS! And full of the funnest people around. For real though, they looked SO good, I was so happy!Melanie, Bethany, and all who helped with the centerpieces nailed my vision PERFECTLY!And Judd took these awesome pictures!My nieces and nephews sang Michael and I the most TENDER song and I cried, and laughed, and could NOT stop smiling!My dad and I got DOWN to jailhouse rock for our daddy daugher dance and then I danced the night away with the rest of the guests. PERFECT!
The cake was just as I hoped! PERFECT! And was quite delicious!! I was so pleased!The decorations were everything I wanted. I wanted someone to look at the place and know that it was our wedding, and I really felt that it had our personalities written all over it.

I really could go on forever. I replay the day over and over in my head all of the time. Michael and I had so much fun. We are so happy. SO SO happy. There just really aren't words to explain how much I love being with him. Ok, I'll stop. :) I have some fun pictures from the beach on our honeymoon and our reception in Texas and I'll be sure to blog those soon. But for now, just know that the wedding day was everything I've ever wanted!

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wedding Week!

I know, it's been forever! But, I've been here at home doing just wedding wedding wedding business and it's been a blast!! I'm sneaking in a quick blog before I have my last planning meeting with my mom :). There has been so much fun stuff that I've been able to do while we've been home. We got to go to the family reunion which was such a blast! We got to go visit Marc and Connie at black butte, also SO FUN! We've been sitting out with the Mitchell's every night. Melanie and the kids are here and I LOVE playing with them. And I've been meeting with the DJ, wedding planner, cake lady, and all other sorts of people. Needless to say it has been an awesome 2 weeks! And let me tell you people, it's going to be a FUN party on Saturday night :) BE THERE! Or be square!
Anyway, I could blog about each of those individual events, but let's talk about what is currently on my mind. In 6 days... I get to marry MICHAEL WOODMANSEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe it is finally here! I'm not even 1% nervous or scared or whatever, I'm so pumped! I have been ready to marry this man since he was 17 and I was 18.

(we were 18 and 19 here)

Anyway, I am so so so excited! I'm excited to not have to say goodbye every night. I'm excited to be in the temple with him. I'm excited to have the last name Woodmansee. I'm excited to live in the same house as him. I'm excited for him to be a part of the Jolley family. I'm excited to cook for him. I'm excited for our relationship to go to the next level becuase we've pretty much mastered the whole "waiting" process. I'm excited to marry my best friend and the best person I've ever known. He is so good to me.
