Oh my gosh – so many things!
The first that pops into my mind is our ceremony. I was very emphatic throughout the planning process that the ceremony was the most important part of the day for me, and our minister made it absolutely incredible. Nearly every guest told us it was the most moving ceremony they had ever attended. I spent most of it working really hard to not cry (I didn’t cry, but I sniffled a LOT!) and the part that got me – and our guests – the most was when our minister recounted his first meeting with us after we were engaged, and particularly the part when he asked why we loved one another. He said that DH said he loved me because I make him feel important and as though everything he has to say truly matters….I hadn’t remembered that and it totally brought tears to my eyes.
The other memory that really stands out above the rest was waiting in the limo outside the church with my dad. I then remember when the church coordinator came to get us to say everything was ready to go and we walked into the church and it was just so beautiful with the flowers and candles, and our soloist was singing The Prayer while we all got ready to walk down the aisle. It was absolutely surreal and something I will always remember.

I will never forget seeing him at our first look. Then walking down the aisle the tears in his eyes. I melt just thinking about it. We went outside of the reception to take some pictures with the photographer and coming back in and everyone making a circle for us to dance in the middle. Then everyone dancing around us. It is one of my favorite pictures of the whole day.

Oo great thread…
20 of my friends surprised me with a mob flash dance to the shuffling song during the dance time. Also, I surprised my husband during our slide show. I pre-recorded the OK GO dance with my bridesmaids. That was fun. =)
Also, just seeing everything put together. After months of planning, you finally see it all come to be. That was lovely.

Our ceremony will always stick out in my mind as a whole especially cuz it was just between my Husband and I (just the two of us went to Vegas to get married), but there’s a few things that stick out for me that really made our wedding ours. Our ceremony felt very romantic and intimate since it was at twilight hour (just before the sun went down in a park outside beside a lit up gazebo) and I will never forget my husband tearing up while he recited his vows to me.
Now onto the silly stuff. I’ll never forget how I got all nervous during the ring exchange and almost put my DH’s ring on the wrong finger cuz I thought it was supposed to go on the same finger as my ring. Oh and I’ll also never forget how I spilled champagne all over my Husband in the limo after we were married. Fortunately, we both laughed it off and he was wearing a black suit so there wasn’t a visible stain. I can see us joking about those things on each anniversary.

1) Our personalized vows. It was probably the most romantic moment of my whole life. His vows were beautiful, we both cried. It was just an amazing moment for both of us.
2) My bridesmaid finding a dead chimpmunk in our cabin’s bathroom while we were getting ready.

A few things…
-When our Unity Candle simply would not light! We were cracking up hysterically…the pastor ended up having to scoop out wax…and then it was everywhere, and we were handing him tissues to wipe it off his hands. It finally lit, but it took around 5 minutes!
-Waiting to walk down the aisle with my dad
-When DH cried saying his vows…and when I did a little dance when he put my wedding band on my finger.
-Cutting the cake and watching people have so much fun at the wonderful party that ensued aftewards…and chatting with friends at the bar after the partyw as over.

- Wedding: March 2012 - Father\'s Vineyard Church/ A Touch of Class Banquet Center
I was so nervous walking down the aisle…until I saw him. We had already done our first look, but just seeing him there waiting for me. It was like everything clicked and was perfect. I also remember the way he looked at me with so much love during our vows.

Definitely when my grandmother was pushed to the front of the conga line.
My grandparents mean the world to me, so I love when they are happy.
As soon as one of my bridesmaids yanked her to the front and told her to shake it, the whole venue started chanting “NANA, NANA, NANA”
She is obviously glowing lol
Also, during formals my grandfather gave me a kiss on my forehead without any prompting. (He is not very lovey dovey normally.) I cried. It was such an emotional day for him. I am more like a daughter than a granddaughter since I grew up in their home, and we have always had a very close and special relationship.

There are so many great moments from our day. A couple that I’ll just never forget is my mom and step dad driving me to the ceremony and as we approached the church my step dad asked me if I wanted him to keep driving or pull into the parking lot. Then the feeling of calm and happiness when I entered the church and saw DH at the end of the aisle, all my nerves from the previous couple days just disappeared. Then one of my most favourite moments was heading to the reception. We had a 20 minute ferry ride and myself and DH sat in the truck, shared an energy drink, swapped stories from getting ready and anticipated what was to come for the rest of the night. It was just awesome to have that time to ourselves in the middle of the day.

We had so many amazing moments, from our first look, to the walk down the aisle, to our close friend piping the bridal party into the reception. But I think my favorite moment was during the reception.
At one point late in the dance, a popular maritime tune was playing and the dance floor was packed. Hurst and I were dancing a reel and as we were spinning, surrounded by all of our family and friends, having the time of our lives, I remember whispering to him, “I have never been so happy.” I literally felt like my heart was going to burst.

Ohhh one more! I drove with just my Mom and Dad to the first look. As we were driving up the road, I said, “It’s weird, I am not nervous at all! I am excited, but mostly just calm. I feel like I was born to do this!” And then, my Dad promptly burst into tears.

so many things. Here are a few top ones
1. Right after our ceremony and we were walking back down (up?) the aisle, we stopped behind a enclosed area where no one could see us and I just balled. He held me and we just cried together. Such an emotional moment.
2. The dancing! Yes, it was Sunday afternoon but we got down! We all had so much fun! There were dance offs between cousins. We danced for hours! SO MUCH FUN. Everyone still talks about how much fun they had dancing at our wedding. Almost everyone was on the dance floor.
3. once we left the venue we went dand walked on the river walk. I was late at night, gorgeous weather and I was in my gown and him in his tux. We both just felt so free and amazing.
