Five Years and Counting...

Today is our 5 year anniversary! It has been an amazing 5 years with lots of adventures! I am so proud to say that I am Mrs. Jonathan Sanders. He is the love of my life and my perfect match in every way. I think you come to find out how God intended you to be with your spouse the longer you are married. How incredible to look back and see God's hand in our life.

Here are some of our favorite pics of our wedding.




Our Parents



The bridesmaids (the groomsmen pic is trapped in our wedding album)
From left to right, Cari, Melanie Andrea, Christine, Kristin, and Janelle

My beloved pastor for 21 years, Dr. James Moore. He was a riot! He reminded the congregation why you get married and reason number 2 was to well...you know. Then he proceeded to to explain that he married my parents, and then Jonathan and I, and if we would "get with it" he could marry our children off. My face was so red, and all I could think of was my students sitting in those chairs behind me. It was quite humorous!

This picture has always cracked me up! The wedding party came running down the hallway after we were married!

They threw rose petals that day and our wedding video in slow motion shows one entering into my mouth and me spitting it out! I wish I could get it on my blog..maybe one day!

It is so fun going back and remembering all the emotions of that day! Can we do it again?

Congrats on 5 years! Your pastor was feeling a little free that day, huh? Ha ha! How fun to see your pictures. You and Jonathan look so happy. I love everyones' faces in the one of the wedding party where they are coming down the hall.

I remember that you grew your hair out so you could have it done a certain way for your wedding.

You look so pretty without a black eye....

That was a fun day! I was so excited for you! Your wedding was also the wedding that helped me decide that I didn't want Larry speaking at mine, haha! Love the pictures!

Okay, I am cracking up all over again thinking about the rose petal flying in your mouth. Remember when we watched that on video and rewound like 50 times while we hysterically laughed!
Your pictures are breathtaking! It was an honor to be able to be a part of that day!
