I'm going to do a few posts about some of my favorite parts about last weekend, starting with some snapshots from the wedding day. The professional photos will take about a month and I really can't wait since we had such a good time with the photographer.
Instead of clinking glasses to get us to kiss, we asked guests to sing us song with the word "love" in it. Everyone got really into it!
My family takes the Chicken Dance very seriously :)
One final note: Jon and I have been utterly humbled by the generosity of our families and friends since we got engaged. We are also a couple who would like to share our good fortune. As part of our wedding registry, we set up a donation page for one of our favorite non-profits, Admission Possible. Admission Possible is an organization that helps low-income high school student gain access to college. We both worked at Admission Possible with AmeriCorps and are proud of the organization and the students they support. Admission Possible is also quickly expanding from serving only students in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul to 10 cities in the next five years.
If you'd like to join us in sharing the joy of our wedding with Admission Possible and the students they serve, please click this link to make an online donation and it will automatically be designated in honor of our wedding. Every donation makes a difference and they currently have a challenge grant that will double donations from new donors.
