- Wedding: May 2012
I’m Married!! I didn’t use weddingbee too much after my now, husband and I got engaged last April. I was more of the ‘write on the waitingbee boards’ type. But I did get on pretty often to read about other bee’s updates and gain inspiration when I felt overwhelmed with the fact I plainly didn’t know how or where to begin with wedding planning. (Good thing my sister owns her own wedding business, huh!)
I was very blessed to have so much help and love through out our planning process. My husband’s parents and my parents took care of everything financially. They wouldn’t hear of us paying for anything. We’re very go-with-the-flow type of people so I was stressed maybe 10% of the entire engagement.
Our wedding day began with my waking up with a full on sore throat and massive amounts of sinus pressure. I had kind of felt something coming on the day before but I was pretty quiet about telling anyone because I didn’t want to stress anyone out with the fact I may have been getting a serious sinus infection (I only get sinus infections when I get sick) I only told Josh (my husband). My sister ended up waking me up at about 8:30am. I had been up since 2am because I felt so horrid, and finally got to sleep at about 6:30am…. wonderful.. not. I told her how sick I was and she called a walk in clinic and they got me right in. I may just use the “it’s my wedding day” excuse again, sometime.. haha. The doctor felt so bad, so he gave me some strong medicine.
Really though, with all of the adreniline of the day, no one could tell I was sick. I just had to keep my distance so I didn’t infect them. We went for photos at an old castle before our wedding, and our photographer already had a slideshow of about 30 photos to show at the reception! It was amazing, we were blown away with her professionalism. I’d never heard of anyone already getting to see professional photos ON their wedding day. We can’t wait to see the rest. I’m very proud of all her hard work, so I included a bunch of photos 🙂
It was an amazing day! Obviously the best day of my life. With my high school sweetheart of 8 years <3
