Baker Wedding: The Ceremony.

Our ceremony was at the same site as the reception. I wanted the décor to be simple and pretty. Our officiant was amazing, keeping the ceremony somewhat short and lighthearted. Cameron and I both messed up the words on our vows at some point and he would say "that'll work" in a joking tone. Everyone really enjoyed him and he helped ease all of the nervousness and anxiousness.
We hired an acoustic guitarist named Chris Teves to play our ceremony music.
The grandparents and parents walked down the aisle to "Spring from The Four Seasons."
I love this picture.

My parents

Wedding party walked down to "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring"

The thought in my mind in this picture: Holy crap, that's a lot of people looking at me!
In the video, it looks like I'm dragging my dad down the aisle, kind of like it does here. I guess I was just really excited to get the show on the road!

I walked down the aisle to "Canon in D." This song always made me think of a bride walking towards her groom, so it was an easy choice.

 My mom using the hanky I gave her. :)

One of my favorite people, and good friend, Savannah, read the scripture. We chose Philippians 2:1-5

We walked back down the aisle as husband and wife to "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee."
The fact that this song from Sister Act gets me so pumped up may have been a factor in that decision. :)

Lots of happy hugs.

Signing the documents to make it official.
