juneweddingbee : my mom spent the entire day making sure people didn’t step on my cathedral length veil. She was obsessive about it. And then right when we got to the top of the aisle and I was approaching my husband she was so caught up in the moment that SHE was stepping on it. I felt the tug and ended up bending halfway backwards so it wouldn’t rip out of my head! I got a huge laugh out of it but my poor mum felt so badly. The photographer got an awesome side-view shot of me looking like I’m in the Matrix hahahaha.

Oh, the most amazing moment was the JOP holding a speech before we exchanged vows. backgound info: my husband doesn’t believe in marriage, as in: us getting married was for me and because it was important to me. He felt very neutral to the whole thing, and maybe even just a little annoyed that there was a little “circus” he had agreed to attend and be in hahha. It was always a little painful for me that he didn’t feel the need for marriage and a wedding, but he was adamant that he wasn’t against it and didn’t want me to miss out on soemthing clearly important to me.
So when the speech was being made and the JOP had such wonderful, kind and helpful words of advice for basically any long term relationship I looked over at my husband and saw that he was truly moved. I saw that for the first time he really got it. It was like an a-ha moment for him that he realized why were here and what this was about. I did got a little teary then.
I kid you not: my husband and I still quotes parts of his speech on the daily because it was so spot on.

Shesaidyes : That’s lovely. Care to share any bits of the speech? I love hearing stuff like that.
Darling Husband also got married mostly for my sake. He was more nervous during the ceremony than I was, which moved me too.
It’s hard to pick a most memorable moment of the day as it was all perfect but our evening meal was the biggest unknown (I picked a restaurant in a castle/hotel off the internet without really knowing anything about it) but it turned out to be PERFECT. Private medieval wood-panelled dining room with beautiful views over the grounds, open fire, candle light and an amazing fine dining experience. It’s also memorable because everyone was just so happy and content.
