June 16, 2012
Forrest and I are officially married! It all happened on June 16, 2012 in Grand Haven, Michigan. Our ceremony was on the beach of my childhood home also known as Lakeshore Inn. The day was perfect in everyway we had our family, friends, and a lot of love!
The dress was amazing! It was passed down from my cousin, Naomi, under one condition-that I get in the Lake wearing it at the end of the day. Forrest wore one of his favorite green shirts and a linen suit he purchased in Louisiana. He looked super fly. Ignoring the weather and questions of unbearable heat and possible rain we set the chairs out along the shore of Lake Michigan. With perfect timing the weather was in our favor. After the ceremony we took a unique exit on a boat! It rained as soon as we left. The rain stopped before long and the reception followed with high spirits! It was a magical night of dinner, dancing, and fireworks. We both agree that it was by far the best day of our lives! We leave for our Honeymoon tomorrow, July 8th, and will be cruising out of the New Orleans port. Here is a link to a wedding website we created with more information. www.mywedding.com/forrestjeni/
Thank you to everyone for celebrating with us and all of the generous gifts we have received. We are using the money to help with rent as we both move into new apartments this fall. Forrest still has two years left at LSU and I (Jeni) am starting my first year at OSU (Ohio State). We know school will start soon enough so we are trying to enjoy the time we have left together. See you when we get back!
