- Wedding: May 2012
Here’s my official recap (with teaser pics only).
I spent the night at my mom’s was in bed and sleeping by 11. Wake up time was 730 and makeup artist to arrive at 830. I was up, bathed, with coffee in hand at 830. I was soo relaxed, perhaps too relaxed as I wondered what I should be doing. For a good 2 hours I did absolutely nothing other than drink coffee and sit around watching my girls get their hair and makeup done. I was calm, chill and relaxed.
Hair was done, makeup on, dressed and ready to go right on time, as planned. Flawless excecution.
Arrived at church (not after 1 small mishap of a tiny part of my necklace breaking off- no biggie) right on time with about half hour to spare. Got my flowers, went pee, put my veil on and started to freak out- OMG I was getting married!!! The minister says we can’t start on time I ask if most are here, she relplies yes- I ask if she or my family can round the group to take their seats to start a mere 10 minutes late.
The processional starts- NOW, I’m nervous and try to not cry as I’m waiting to walk. I see my Dad, I get teary- but determined not to cry, I look up and up again. My brother fluffs my dress and veil- and it is time. The doors open and holy shit it hit me- this is it. My lip quivers constantly, I look at my man at the end and nearly let the waterworks go but decide I should just look up instead. At the end my brother lets go of my arm and I spit out a “holy shit” (opps) and we hug, my father does the same. The entire ceremony I’m on the brink of tears. I look just about everywhere except crying people so I don’t ugly cry. The entire ceremony I was barley listening but knew what she was saying. The vows came and went. The rings went on, and we were married!
The reception was AWESOME, epic. Few ladies were hammered- but had a great time. The only reception mishaps were the doors opened about 10-15 mins late, and threw timing off a bit. We forgot to thank HIS mother, and when I presented my bouquet to my aunt (instead of throwing it) there was no announcement so people were kind of confused. Supposedly. But other than that it was sooo awesome!
