It’s official, Guinea Pig recaps are here! And to start things off, I thought a sneak peek of the day might be in order.
You know how wedding photographers and websites like Once Wed, or Southern Weddings, etc. do posts with a handful of photos that give you a general feel for the day? I figured—what better way to kick off the Guinea Pig recaps than to do a quick photo tour of our wedding! I’ll admit, it was really hard to choose so few photos. I feel like there are so many more awesome photos to share (which, yay! I get to!), but I tried very hard to pick photos for this that would set the stage and give you a good idea of what’s in store for my recaps( as opposed to just 100 photos of Mr. GP and me – although I will admit quite a few of the two of us snuck in there!).
So without further ado, our wedding: wedding-blogland-style.

Now that you’ve seen a few photos of the day, I’ll rewind time for a day and get started with our rehearsal. All my recaps will start with “Far Beyond Forever”, which is an excerpt from the lyrics of our first dance song. I loved the lyrics, and I’m happy to think about them every time I write about our wedding!
More than the greatest love the world has known
This is the love that I give to you alone
More than the simple words I try to say
I only live to love you more each day
More than you’ll ever know
My arms long to hold you so
My life will be in your keeping
Waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping
Longer than always is a long, long time
But far beyond forever you’ll be mine
I know I never lived before
And my heart is very sure
No one else could love you more
