- Wedding: May 2017
Hi everyone! If you had read anything of my other posts about anxiety and all- didn’t want to leave you hanging from the day of. 🙂
Woke up the morning of ACTUALLY sick because all the not eating and if I had ate it came back up, so my body was super deprived of the nutrients it needed and decided to catch up with me the day of the wedding, because when else would it, right? 😂 I ended up getting sick twice before we left for the venue, I think one from being sick one for nerves. My photographer was the freaking bomb digitity and I can’t wait for “real” photos but I have a couple pics to show. 🙂
The rain held off till about 45 minutes before we left so that was good for everyone! We did have quite a few no-shows we weren’t expecting but that’s okay, everyone had a great time and told us it was one of the best laid back wedding they had every been at! We had no “wedding things” like first dance, bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc! So everyone just ate amazing food my step dad catered for about 140 people, drank, danced, talked, hung out, it was perfect!
Myself walking into the venue mid-panic attack with my Maid/Matron of Honor and a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my first dress.
So because of my anxiety we did things a little different. We had everyone walk into our reception and get a drink or two while my mom and did walked myself down the aisle alone while his parents walked him down the aisle. So our parents still got that but we were already there sitting when all the guests came out, then our bridal party and adorable flowers girls and ring bearers came out too. Then they also still got to do the whole effect. 🙂
We stood up for our first kiss and our ceremony, not kidding, lasted about four minutes. It was perfect. I was freaking out about the repeat after me part for exchanging rings and our minister told me I could just pretend to read if I needed to or mumble it and when I fully read it everyone close to us got so excited and gasped hahahah
After we got some pictures in my formal dress (it had my moms lace sewn on the other one and used my moms veil) I changed into this steal I got from LuLus online for $84 with a flower crown. 🙂
Here we are sitting at our sweetheart table during the reception. 🙂Somehow this is the only decoration picture I have, this is the half of the tables that were outside of the barn under the tent, somehow we ran out of wooden slabs even though we cut just the right amount so these don’t have the wooden slabs but others did.
Now we are in Puerto Rico for a week, both feeling sick from a cold or something of that sort and just slept for about 5 hours after we got in from our flight, so I’m laying here listening to the storm outside before going back to sleep. 😊
