I will forever remember the awkward moment when we realized that we would have to fake communion and the few moments after that we had to just stand there together with our backs to everyone and dh was telling me what we were going to do that night 😉

Ok…so many things! i will give me top three
the first was my mother falling into me four or five times while she was helping me into my dress. i think she was high on painkillers and almost ripped my dres….made me sooooo mad.
the second was my dh and his response to seeing me. he tried to contain his happiness under a smirk, but i knew and this look meant everything. i could never forget it.
third being my vavo who is sick and her comment. my centerpieces were teapots, tea spoons, and tea. she said was was going to save the tiny tea spoon for when i had children. she was so happy when she said it. i really hope she will be around for the little ones. i told her that was a fantastic idea. i was told i get one demand on my wedding day, thought this was funny. i told her that my demand was that she lived forever. i demanded but everyone laughed at me hey…she is the best and i was serious loI

omg, I forgot! We lit our candle, and by the time we had gotten back to our spots, it had gone out! We joked that ours was the shortest union ever!

I’ve been thinking about this and I can’t really pin down any one thing.
I felt happy and calm most of the day.
I remember after the ceremony was over really looking at him and seeing his suit (he’d picked it out and I hadn’t seen it) and that was fun.
Then probably reading all the crap our friends had written on our getaway car, lol. That was fun. A lot of the guys are pastors so they put some of the dirtier verses from the Bible, lol. But driving away it was definitely a sense of ahhhh, it’s over! I was so glad it went well and was done with!
I’m not a super emotional person and it was just a really nice day, but so much attention on myself is not something I relish. I wanted to elope, but I’m glad my mom and Fiance got a wedding, lol.

My new brother in law (400 lbs) getting really really drunk fallin on me and grabbing my butt and trying to kiss me on my mouth….not a good memory…being with my close family was the good part and the snow storm held off until after our reception 🙂

I think that would be a moment while at the reception, I was talking to some guests and I got a glance of my DH with his bright new shiny wedding ring, frantically walking up and down, and the lady I was talking to said “I think you’re husband’s looking for you” That’s when it hit me, that’s my husband. Went to him and it turned out he just missed having me by his side.

I will never forget the way his dad hugged me & cried after the ceremony. Our photog got a great pic of it that I will always cherish.

I think my most memorable moment was during our first dance it seemed the world had stopped and it was just us there in that magical place. Then I came to and realized I was singing quietly to him (I never sing – nor should I ever sing), DH was singing quietly back to me and his guy friends we arm in arm swaying in the back ground. Its is one of my favorite memories and favorite pictures from the day:
Other memorable moments:
-feeling completely calm the morning of
-my sisters getting me into my dress while my mom and grandma looked on in tears
-standing and watching the guests walk in to the church
-missing the moment where I was supposed to kiss my new husband, he went for the kiss and I went for the cheek! Whopps! It wasn;t a “you may now kiss your bride” moment, it was different and I was scared/confused! haha…
-taking pictures in the adorondak (sp?) chairs and being bombarded with ducks
-taking the stage with the band

I think the number one thing I’ll remember was during our 2nd reading of the ceremony. I had told DH leading up to the wedding that I had better see tears on his face when he saw me walking down the aisle; I was of course joking (mostly). Well, he did end up getting alittle misty eyed but there were no falling tears. When our second reading rolled around, Ephesians 5:2, 21-33, we were sitting holding hands and as I listened I started to become overwhelmed with emotion by the words in the reading. I felt DH squeeze my hand and I looked over at him and sure enough there were tears! It was such a special moment for us to know how important this reading was to each other 🙂

An older co-worker of mine snuck him a handkerchief to catch my tears. Boy did he need it. He wiped my tears and everyone in the audience that wasn’t crying yet started then. Everyone wil remember that if nothing else!
