- Wedding: January 2012
So, while my bridesmaids, the other female VIPs, and I were in a tizzy trying to get ready in the bride’s room, the guys were really rushed and stressing out, too.
Really. Can’t you see how hardworking they are? Can’t you see the worry in their eyes as they wonder if they’ll be finished making themselves beautiful in time?
Then awesome. Congratulations! You don’t have to get your eyes checked!
While we were desperately trying to finish making ourselves look beautiful, the guys were eating a serious feast in the groom’s room. Father-In-Law went shopping beforehand and got a little bit carried away.
I do, however, have photographic evidence of Mr. Moon doing at least SOMETHING to get ready, though! See, here he went through all the extra effort of having our coordinator pin on his boutonniere!
Yeah. I’m just a little bit jealous.
Since the boys finished making themselves look fantastic long before they needed to, they had some time to go and get some pictures taken.
First, they headed up to the front of the church, since the light was coming through the stained glass at the front in such a beautiful fashion. They got a few great shots of Mr. Moon, but then they had to hurry out. You see, right at the same moment that they were taking these nice, relaxed pictures, I was getting out of my car and going “AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F**********************!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” I had to go right through this area to get to the bride’s room, so while I was freaking out next to my car and directing my minions to move my stuff into the church, my friends who had previously thought I was a sweet and blushing bride were trying not to laugh while they shooed Mr. Moon out of the area. The boys ended up in the labyrinth in the church courtyard.
While out there, our photographer handed Mr. Moon the letter I had written to him. Like I said before, I almost forgot about it, so I wrote it around 2:00 AM that morning. There wasn’t any paper in the hotel room, but I did have a bunch of thank you cards I had used earlier that day to give to our ushers and other helpers. “Thank You” didn’t seem very appropriate, though, so I fixed it.
Mr. Moon says he found the letter to be very sweet and romantic, and he got very teary-eyed while reading it. I’m glad, since I was worried it was going to be obvious how tired I was when I wrote it. I remembered writing something along the lines of “WHEEEEE! Marriage! I like marriage! WHEEEEEE! I’m going to be your wife! Awesome awesome awesome awesome! I love you the most forever!!!” He, however, claims that Shakespeare’s love sonnets aren’t even half as romantic. I’ll settle for something in between.
They wanted to get some pictures in the labyrinth, since they just had soooooo much time (boys suck!), but then they got distracted, and all of them ended up walking the labyrinth instead. Fortunately, our photographer made it work.
When they were done walking it, they did gather in the center for a very serious photo that would really capture the weight of Mr. Moon’s undertaking and the meaning in the day. They all posed and took a moment to consider the meaning of marriage, the awesomeness of love everlasting, and what it means to be a husband.
And then, from the bottom center, our ring bearer, Mr. Moon’s cousin and godson, exclaimed in a very loud voice, “I just farted!” I’m not even joking.
You can make your own joke here about what exactly our ring bearer thinks marriage means.
Mr. Moon and his brother, the best man, then escaped the fumes to have a private moment together before they walked in to start greeting their guests. Thank goodness, too. Without my laid back BIL, I think Mr. Moon would already be in tears as he thought about me. Instead, he’s smiling.
Of course, that might just be because the ring bearer, standing just a few feet away, had just announced that he was going to fart again.
Oh, but to be a boy…
And with that, they went inside so Mr. Moon could marry me.
Ceremony pictures coming soon!
