Oh my gosh, I feel like my whole morning (aside from actually doing my job, booo) was taken over by drama! Weddingbee got tense for a bit huh?
Soooo, I was just thinking about my wedding and wanted to know, from the newlyweds- what was your favorite (I know its tough to choose)moment of the day? Mine was when I saw my husband cry when I walked down the aisle, even though he pretended he didn’t. But aside from the cliche answer, I had the most fun at the after party. It was so great to just have all of our favorite people around. I took a moment and sat back to watch them interact (most of them had never met each other) and have fun.
And brides-to-be: what is the moment you’re most looking forward to?

@jennifer_espos: I’m so with you! Crazy drama this morning!!
My absolute favorite moment was our first dance. It was the one time where we didn’t have a single person interrupt us for a picture or a question or well wishes or anything. It was just me and him, on the dance floor having our first dance as Mr. and Mrs.
And, I’m also with you on the afterparty. My mom stressed me out the entire wedding, so the afterparty was my time to get away from her and enjoy my guests. Fabulous…tiring, but really awesome!

My favorite moment was meeting DH at the end of the aisle, holding his hands, and looking into his eyes. Our officiant asked us to look out into the audience and appreciate all our family and loved ones out there. It was a surreal moment… I loved it! Oh, and the reception/dancing part was really fun too!! 🙂

@stephanie63087: Us too!
jennifer_espos – I know! Lets hope for a drama free night!
I was originally going to skip ALL the dances but decided It would be something special do do.

Well we had a surprise moment that was pretty amazing. When we were pronounced, and started to walk back up the aisle, white rose petals started falling from the dome above us. My mom had paid the church staff to climb up into the dome and shower us with petals. I HOPE that someone got a great picture of it!

@2PeasinaPod– That’s awesome that you guys took that moment in. You didn’t just go through the motions, you really enjoyed it. Our first dance was great too! But I kept going back and forth between feeling silly with everyone watching us and not caring because I was so happy. And I’m glad ya got to let loose at the after party. That was also finally the time when no one was in our faces, we were just… there.
@stephanie63087– so you guys aren’t gonna practice? It’s totally not necessary, just curious. You guys will enjoy the time together and find your rhythm.
@rachelrobin- MAKE SURE YOU EAT ALL THE FOOD AT THE COCKTAIL HOUR! Sorry for the caps. But we didn’t eat much then and it was the best food. Its honestly by biggest regret, I love food!
@ddubzz– that’s a good memory to have. I was too afraid to look out at the guests! My husband kept making me giggle at the alter, he was so nervous he kept doing goofball things! Can’t wait for the video!

@mishelleez- why were you guys gonna skip the dances? Its good that you ended up really enjoying it!
@ella1978- that is so cool! How sweet of your Mom to do. I hope someone got a picture of it too. Did you guys have a videographer too?

@jennifer_espos: Oh I know! I love food also. I was seriously drooling when we met with the caterer to go over the menu!

We did have a viedographer. It was a gift from some of our friends. She didn’t get great shots of the ceremony though, because of where they made her stand.. very upset about that. She has it mic-ed, but not a great image.
My mom is very sneaky! My photog sent me an email yesterdday about sending my DVDs, so I’ll pick out the best photos when I get them and do a recap!

I like this post, it’s giving me Weddingbee warm and fuzzies again! 🙂
I’m most looking forward to the moment when I’m with my dad, and I get to see the look on FI’s face when he see’s me for the first time as I walk down the aisle.

We had so many amazing moments it’s hard to choose..
My husband also cried when I walked down the aisle. And what made it even more special to me was that we had already spent the whole day together taking pictures. It was such a shock and so intense, completely unexpected. It made me cry too.
A close second was after the recessional going into a private room in the church crying/hugging each other b/c we had just gotten married! I’m tearing up right now..
Seeing him for the first time, our ‘first look’ was extra special.
Being introduced as Mr. & Mrs. was awesome as well!

- Wedding: June 2010 - Tannery Pond at the Darrow School
One of my favorite moments was much later in the reception, when our guests spontaneously circled around us during our band’s rendition of the Beatle’s Hey Jude…It was so awesome to just have everyone around us singing and us in the center happy as can be…Here’s a picture from it, hopefully it works!
SO. MUCH. FUN.
