The dust has somewhat settled, honeymoon bags are finally unpacked, and we've finally found a sense of normalcy again after all the chaos of the wedding has subsided. In an effort to provide COMPLETE coverage of our lives as they happen, THEN and NOW....Here's a look back at the Kelley/Maldonado Wedding Weekend!
As Wedding blog 1 of 2: Here is the run down of the events leading up to the day... (before I forget!) :)

6pm - It felt surreal as Chad and I walked thru the church doors that night as we had done many times before... but this time we were greeted to our friends and family gathered around the lobby.... all for us!! After a round of hugs and hellos from beautifully familiar faces, we gather around the alter and begin to take instruction from our church coordinator. Hands clasped, hearts pounding loudly in our chests.... Chad and I faced eachother and recited the very words that in less than twenty four hours would change the rest of our lives. After two test runs and some last minute instructions from our wedding planner Rachel, we end the church rehearsal and begin to gather the troops for the short caravan trip to our house for the rehearsal dinner.
Waiting in the lobby for the rehearsal before us to end...
