Part 1: Getting Ready
A few little things went wrong in between leaving the hotel and the start of our ceremony. We were already running late (those darn buttons!), and then I tried to take a new “faster” route to our venue and ended up going very far out of the way. There was a lot of rushing around to get everything set up, but thankfully I had an incredible team of helpers. Once everything was done, we couldn’t find my brother in law (who was supposed to walk my mom down the aisle), so that delayed us further. These were all minor problems, but I felt guilty that my guests were sitting outside in the cold while we sorted everything out. At least they had a pretty view!
From the moment I started walking down the aisle, I forgot about everything but the fact that I was marrying my best friend, and I was just so incredibly happy. This is a guest pic, but it’s my favorite of my dad and I.
We wrote our own vows, and I was blown away by my husband’s. They were incredibly heartfelt and just perfect.
Before long, we were pronounced husband and wife and were ready to celebrate!
We still had pictures to take, so my husband tried to warm me up while we waited for our guests to head off to the cocktail hour.

@Mrs.Snickerdoodle: Yay!!! We looked there, too, but FI decided he didn’t want to be married on a golf course. Not sure why, but whatever. The ceremony site is soooo beautiful and I really like your dress. I love seeing other bay area brides. Our wedding is next month and I’m freaking out:):):)
