Russ and I got married 14 years ago on September 20, 1997. I was 19 years old and Russ was 23 years old. We got married while we were both in college, yes, in the midst of the fall semester. We were on a tight budget but I think we had a very nice wedding.
Here's some pictures (sorry they have some graininess to them, these are old scans):

At our reception
There are some things that went wrong that I would change: the sound guy who erased all the wedding music and came to tell me, THE BRIDE, just minutes before the ceremony; the bakery who forgot to deliver the cake; one of our ushers slicing his thumb open on the candle lighter; the wrong tuxedos being ordered; and Russ not getting even a taste of his groom's cake. Or maybe I wouldn't change them, it made the day memorable.
If I could do anything differently, I would probably want to have an outdoor wedding still in the fall, so that we would get to take advantage of the beautiful autumn colors. I'd still want lots of candles. I think I'd pick a more flowing dress if we were outdoors. I loved my dress, but it wouldn't be very functional outdoors. Ummm, not sure what else. Oh, I would want to incorporate gerbera daisies and fire and ice roses to the flowers instead of doing all white. And, I asked Russ if he would change anything and he said he would want to have communion during the ceremony which I think is an amazing idea!
The most important thing to me though now and then was marrying the love of my life. So while I can look at all these little details and say I would or would not do this, at the end of the day, I was married to Russ and how could I ask for more! Love you Bubba!
