Rasmussens Get Married: Ceremony Pictures

Finally I am ready to share some more wedding pictures with you beautiful people! I don't know why I took such a long break from our pictures, mostly because I want to continue to relive this day as long as possible.

Lets start with some details:



Of course we had coffee favors. What other favors would you expect from us?




Our guest book was seriously such a FUN part of our wedding. It was unique and special to us and I am planning on sharing more details of the filled out pages from guests soon.












Minutes Before I walked down the aisle, my beautiful bridesmaids prayed with me for a minute, praying for peace and calmness and asking God to use our marriage to point people to Him. This was one of my favorite moments of the day and so special to me.


Our friend Jake sang at our wedding and it was so incredible! He leads worship at our church and is a close friend of Ronnie's. He sang the song "How He Loves" while I walked down the aisle, and sang two worship songs during the ceremony as well.




Ronnie's nephew's sign says : Uncle Ronnie, here comes your Girl. So precious.


My niece Nora did a knockout job as our flower girl. This picture of my sister-in-law trying to get my 18 month old nephew down the aisle is hilarious to me. He didn't make it, but it was so cute and funny and everyone laughed.






My dad walked me down the aisle, but I also wanted my step-dad to meet us at the end so they could both give me away together. This was a really special way for me to honor both of these men in my life who loved me so well. The entire walk down the aisle I was crying (and so was Ronnie!) and I still cry when I hear "How He Loves".






Another one of my favorite moments of the ceremony was when Jake sang "I Have Decided". This song was really important to us because we were declaring to our friends and family that we have not only decided to follow Jesus for the rest of our lives as individuals, but also as a couple. We've decided to put Him first in our marriage, and committed to loving Him and serving Him as a married couple and as a family with children someday.







Having all our friends and family singing with us was such an emotional and sweet time for me. I literally felt the presence of Jesus so much this day, and was so blessed to have so many brothers and sisters in Christ singing along with us. We also had our bridesmaids and groomsmen pray over us and I can't begin to tell you how much it meant to have Ronnie's childhood best friend praying for God's favor and blessing over our marriage with the rest of our best friends surrounding us.




I still remember this day SO vividly and am SO thankful for all the wonderful people that helped make it the wedding I always dreamed of. I still can't believe I am married to my very best friend. Marriage is so sweet.

  14. First off, I just found your blog, and I love it. I love meeting other sisters in Christ in the blog world; it brings joy to my heart. I LOVE the fact that you used coffee beans as your wedding favors. I might just steal that idea from you. My boyfriend and I both LOVE coffee, and we've talked about even having a coffee bar at our wedding, so that would be PERFECT! Thanks for the inspiration! :) Also, I really love how the bridesmaids and groomsman prayed over you guys. What an awesome, awesome day!

  22. Oh my goodness.. I got goosebumps reading/looking at this post-- I still have them. Your ceremony was so beautiful and I love all of the sincerity and little touches. The "Let love brew" bags with coffee is such an amazing idea.. I almost wish that my fiance and I were having a "real" wedding so that I could do something like that. Wow! So much greatness!
