Wilder Together

Hello Farmgirl friends!

It’s hard to believe it has already been almost a month since our wedding!  Some of you might remember when Evan and I were engaged…five years ago.  A lot has happened in the interim—two children, many new friends, a few hard losses of loved ones, new jobs, new homes and some fun vacations.  It probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that I don’t feel that much different after getting married.  The most shocking thing I’ve had to accept is the new title of “Mrs.” which is how my step cousin addressed me as we chatted in the receiving line after the ceremony.

    Oh, I love all the photos and the story of your wedding day. So unconventional it was wonderful. So nice of the whole family pitching in and helping to make your day so special. All the wonderful things that were made by members of your families is awesome. Your final picture is also very endearing, you with your grandma. It is so nice of you to share so much of your life with us who are strangers to you. It makes us feel special too. Here’s to a very blessed and wonderful married life.

    You were a beautiful bride and the love and fun of the day just pours out in your post. Thank you for sharing your wedding day with all of us and many happy years to the ” Wilders”! Love,

    Your timing to share about your wedding was perfect. I’m helping with the planning of my Granddaughter’s wedding coming Oct 7th. Nothing big she said. Just family and a very few close friends. I think we’re talking 40 – 50 people. I love some of your wonderful memories with pictures. It certainly makes for a vivid rolling movie as if I was there loving every minute and enjoying the girls. I have six daughters myself. All married, kids grown & growing, with 29 grands and 21 great grands. I wish we could see all of them. Anyway, I love the Magazine, your blog is awesome, and I’m a farm girl from a little town of 680 pop and loved everything about the farm and being my dad’s shadow and my mom’s student in life. Bless you precious young lady. I look forward to your next post.. Your Friend, Grama Debbie

    • Alexandra Wilson says:

      Thanks Grama Debbie! Six Daughters, wowza! I hope your granddaughter’s wedding goes smoothly. It can all be such a whirlwind 🙂
