On June 25, 1994 Phillip and I said "I do" inside a sunken garden in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
I dug through some boxes last night and found a few things from that special time...
Here is what my wedding dress looked like. I tried on 3 dresses and liked this one the best. A few months later I found this picture in a magazine. It's much easier to show you this way rather than getting the dress down from my closet. Then I would have to admit that I never got it cleaned or preserved and I wouldn't want to do that. ;0)
I still have our guest book. We had a small (around 40 guests) reception at our future home.
Here we are 13 years ago. We aren't as skinny now but Phillip does have shorter hair. ;0)
We actually celebrated our anniversary this past Friday night. Nana and Papa babysat while Phillip took me to a John Mayer concert. We left the house at 6:00pm and got home at 1:30am. It was worth it though!
Happy Anniversary, Phillip!! I'm looking forward to the next 13 (and many more!) years together!!
What a beautiful bride and a handsome couple you are!
May you have many, many more years together!
Happy Anniversary to you two!

Happy anniversary, y'all!
I've always wanted a garden wedding just like yours.
Happy Anniversary, Kelli and Phillip! I am in the same boat. I didn't preserve my gown either. It's in a space bag, you know the as seen on TV ones! We'll see how it turns out.
Your dress is beautiful and the garden setting is lovely--and what a nice-looking couple.
We will celebrate thirty-eight years this Thursday! Seems like yesterday--sometimes!
Thank you for sharing your photos with us. Congratulations to both of you, and may you be blessed with many more years together.
