a sneak peek

Here's a little teaser of a few wedding pics. I'm hoping to meet with my friend Stephanie who took all our pictures next week to get the disk. We were very blessed to have someone take all our photos for free. I tried to get her to take money, but she insisted. I knew before the wedding that she was a gift from God but this just made it even more evident that she truly has a giving heart. Thank you Stephanie!

Getting ready to put my veil on...another blessing - it was a $200 veil that I got for less than $100 at David's Bridal...and my hair was done by another family friend!

My flowers were silk, and a family friend did them for a reduced price and the cost of materials...again, another blessing.
I am so very pleased with the way my cake turned out! We had a TON of compliments about it, and were truly blessed again with a friend of the family to do it for a reduced rate!

We wanted to have a Memorial for relatives who meant a lot to us, and our families. The smaller picture is of my Great-Grandparents on my mother's side...Gramps was a dear and died on Halloween a few years back. The bigger picture is Steven with his younger sister who died at 3 months old due to heart complications.

Well, I'll post more pictures and another blog about our big day, but Steven just called from Hawaii so I'm going to chat with him for a while and then go to bed.

National Adoption Awareness Month

This month is National Adoption Awareness Month. Last year I made a TON of graphics to show support. So I thought I would share them on here. If you want to use any of them just right click to save to your computer.

Hope you all enjoy them!

Mrs. Negley

So I'm offically Mrs. Negley! It'll be a week tomorrow. We went on our honeymoon and to Chattanooga without a comp. So I'm WAY behind on blogs and what not...I'm going to try to catch up later. We have to get Steven ready for Hawaii. He leaves on Sunday...I get to leave hopefully before Christmas, spending out first Christmas away would suck. But it won't be the last one we'd spend apart...

Anyways, just wanted to let ya'll know we're alive and well. I'll post some pictures from family members later!

Love ya'll!
