Mr & Mrs Cunningham, St. James Missouri Wedding

Weddings 10 . 26 . 13

This wedding is a special one for me. I grew up with that goofy blonde hair kid, Brandon, but for for as long as I can remember we called him Mook. He is one of my cousins. We lived down the road from each other for most of our lives. I remember hanging out at their house several times a week and vice versa. Mook never missed a warm meal my mother cooked. I was thankful when Mook’s little brother Bubba came along. He took alot of the heat off of me, being I was the second youngest and the only girl around. I have always thought of them as brothers. I have the scars to prove it. That trampoline provided hours of fun, but I can remember Matt and Mook throwing Bubba and I off at least a couples times ;) Mook is one of the first of my cousins on the Cunningham side of the family to get married. Funny, I never thought he would be the first to get married until I met Sara.

Sara is sweet and kind, maybe a little shy when I first met her. Her sweet personality reminds me so much of my Aunt Janice, whom I adore. After about a year of dating, I knew they were going to get married. She was different to him. They clicked. I also think they kinda look alike and that is one of my “signs” for people who belong together. I know that sounds silly!

On a rainy day in October, they said “I Do” at the family farm surrounded by family and friends. In true Cunningham fashion, there were lots of laughs and jokes to go around all evening. Uncle D also had to drag out the backhoe for who knows what. Every time I go out there is running some type of heavy machinery.

That evening we danced and celebrated to an awesome band from Nashville. It was great to be around the family! There were also people I haven’t seen since high school, it is always great catch up. I am very thankful for Taisia Gordon who assisted and second shot with me so I could enjoy this day like the rest of my family. So, I kind of like family weddings, who’s next boys?!
