Oh It Is Love (updated)

Oh, it is love.  Sometimes you can just feel it.  Jenn, who calls Austin Ozzie, or My Ozzie erupts into an ear-to-ear grin whenever she speaks her Ozzie's name.  Oh, it's just so adorable! 

Jenn and Austin came up with a unique event timeline (as you might have noticed above) that used the Stillwater Public Library's event space to its greatest advantage.  As guests arrived, the bride and groom greeted them personally, and welcomed them to a pre-ceremony appetizer reception.  Butlered canapes were passed by The Grand, and the bar (also by The Grand) was set-up on terrace to provide wine.  Jenn, in order to keep her guests (and her Ozzie, of course) waiting for big reveal of her wedding dress, wore a simple white cotton mini-dress during the cocktail hour.
After greeting guests and mingling for an hour and a half, Jenn and Austin retired to the Library's conference room to prepare for the ceremony, and guests were asked to find a seat.  Jenn changed into her full-length dress and veil, and wowed the crowd and her groom when she walked down the aisle.  The ceremony was performed by Reverend Susan Lee-Wright, and followed by a private marriage certificate signing in the Library's rotunda. 
Following the ceremony, there was dancing, laughing, and cake.  The dancing took place in the Library's Margaret Rivers Room.  There was climate control, and the bride & groom did not want to have to worry about controlling music volume or paying the Library's $200 noise deposit.  They were able to have their dance music LOUD, and didn't have to worry about complaints from surrounding neighbors. 
Please check out Michelle Tanner (the photographer) and her website for more pictures of Jenn & Austin's wedding!  She did a great job...MUCH better than my pictures in this post.
