So yes it is true I am married! I had such a great weekend. Who knows why we both have goofy expressions on our faces in this picture! We could not have asked for it to go any better. I don't have any pictures from our photographer yet, but I will soon I hope. Some friends took a few pictures and I have posted them below.

I spent the week before in KS getting last minute details together. It was a little stressful but it all turned out ok. My family got there on Friday and it was so great to spend some time with them. I was not able to spend as much time with them as I had hoped but I guess I was a little busy :) I was very worried about the weather. It had been cold and rainy ALL week and all I could think was that my outdoor wedding was about to moved indoors. Neither Matt nor I wanted it inside so we were just praying the weather would change. Friday was beautiful. It was sunny and about 65. My nerves calmed a little with that but I still didn't know what Saturday would be like. Well it was great! It was sunny all day and in the upper 60's. It was still pretty chilly for my bridesmaids but they kept telling me not to worry about it, they would stand out there for me with no complaints. And they did. When the ceremony rolled around the sun went behind some clouds and the wind picked up a little, but we were not out there as long as we thought we would be, so I think everyone was ok. We really felt God was on out side when the weather became so beautiful, since it had been nasty all week, and then sunday was rainy and cold again. We got the 2 best days of the week for our rehearsal and wedding. I am going to take away so many memories from this past weekend. I can't wait to start living my life with Matt and making more memories as a family.

I love this picture! Emma would NOT walk down the isle unless she was able to carry ALL her Easter baskets. This includes her Elmo easter basket. It was precious!

Our first kiss as husband and wife! The roses were part of a Rose Cermony that we did. It was a great way to start our life together.

Heading down the isle with my dad. I was so excited and could not wait to be Mrs. Schafer.
