Hello blogging world! I'm back! Ish! We have some down time, so I'm going to give a quick highlight post of how the wedding went (and who knows, maybe a couple G-rated honeymoon shots as well).
First of all, OMG. You know how in the movies prom is this magical thing but in real life it's almost always awful or at least way less dramatic than you expect? I sort of expected getting married to be similar...like, after all the stress and planning it would be good, but not great. Well, mine was great. So there. :-P Everything, down to every last little detail, was EXACTLY as I hoped it'd be. Every single one of my vendors came through in glorious fashion (even the food was amazing!) and there wasn't a drop of rain to be had (but it was overcast, so no one is squinting in pictures....perfect!!!) Not a speck of drama, and the only "hitch" was when the ring bearer walked down the aisle...without the rings!! I didn't get to see that, but I'm excited to see the pictures...I hear the look on the best man's face was priceless. :-)
Without further ado, here's a rundown, picture-style, of how the weekend went:
After that, we headed to the rehearsal, of which I have precious few pictures at the moment. There'll be more...because my photographer is amazing.
I had him running errands for me (even going to the ATM with a pin number I couldn't remember correctly lol) like mad, but mostly I was just grateful to have him there for support, from the start. Seriously, best little brother ever.
Best man ready for his big moment.
Man, I'm going through just a fraction of the pics from the reception and it's hard to cherry pick just a few so y'all won't be bored (which, if you're not already, kudos! lol)
OK,just a couple more:
Trust me, there will be plenty more pictures later on, but this is what I've got for now. It was, hands-down, the best day of my life so far. I've never felt so unconditionally loved and supported as I did that day...it was humbling to see how many people came from all corners of the continent to celebrate with us, and I can't express enough how grateful I am that we're surrounded by such positive influences. We have really great families and wonderful friends, and in the end...that's what makes it worth it. :0)
Oh, one parting picture:
