Rosemary Beach

The past 3 months have been a whirlwind of excitement, change, and adventure!
Jonathan and I were married on April 19, 2008 at Rosemary Beach. The entire weekend was amazing, and we were overwhelmed by the love and support that surrounded us.
The festivities began Thursday night with a Welcome Party at The Funky Blues Shack in Carillon Beach. It was so much fun to see everyone! Friday morning my aunts hosted the Bridesmaids' Brunch at Criolla's while Jonathan and the guys played golf. Then that night the Shaub's hosted the rehearsal dinner at Cafe 30-A . The food was delicious. Jonathan and I were truly touched by the thoughtful and sincere toasts made by our friends and family. Saturday morning I woke up at 5:30am to a thunderstorm, but by 11:00 the weather was beautiful. The wedding ceremony began at 5:00 and was performed by Matt Hearn, Jonathan's uncle, who made everyone cry when he started crying near the end. The band, which was a big unknown before the wedding, was awesome; we couldn't have asked for a better band! They had everyone on the dance floor before the appetizers were even served, especially Jonathan's groomsmen who had a "dance-off." It was high school vs. college and it was hilarious!! We had a "air jump rope," CPR performed, the "worm," a "dancing chicken fight," and much, much more. The whole night was perfect. Thank you to everyone who was able to be there. It meant so much to us.

We hope you enjoy!
