I was so excited to see my husband. Then the doors opened and BAM the florist screwed up big time! I was mad. Then, I saw DH and everyone else and I kept thinking to look up. I’m shy and seeing all of those people was a little bit scary. I was so excited and nervous.

My dad was counting out a rhythm as we came down the steps so I was concentrating on that
Step down, pause, step down, pause. Dang this sun is HOT. Oooh DH looks good! Hmm shoulda practiced more with the contacts then I would be able to SEE where I am going. Step and pause, step and pause.

I was thinking..
“OMG, why is it so windy?! Get this damn veil off!”
“There are so many people staring at me!”
“Am I walking too fast?” I might have actually said that one out loud to my dad.

My dad drove me down to the ceremony area..and had no where to park so he drove down on the grass where everyone could see. So it started with:
- Daddy, everyone can see me…they aren’t supposed to see me yet.
- We were supposed to start at the top of the hill..now we’re in the middle.
- Did I reapply my lip gloss?
- I’m sinking in the grass.
- Don’t fall, Amber. Don’t fall.
- Is my dad stepping on my dress?
- Yes, he’s stepping on my dress.
- Smile! Everyone is looking!!
- Why does everyone have their camera out?
- Don’t trip on the stairs.
- Mike help me on the stairs.
- Finally here! Did I smile enough?

“Oh my song, here we go. Wow so many people. There he is! She brought her baby?!? He looks so handsome. OH CRAP!!!!! MY SHOE IS STUCK IN MY DRESS! No one can see that, try to walk normal, stop limping, almost there.”

I was definitely distracted and delighted by all the faces of my loved ones — seeing their expressions, where they ended up sitting, etc. But two special things:
We had timed out the musical clip of Pachelbel’s Canon to be essentially just about what my Dad and I needed to emerge, walk down the aisle, for me to hug my dad and then turn to my now-husband. So a lot of what I was thinking was “Yup, OK, good, I think this is about where we should be in the music…keep this pace, Dad…OK…”
The other thing was that I am short and our aisle was fairly narrow. This meant that my now-husband and I couldn’t even really see each other for most of the walk down the aisle! The photographer caught a great picture of him peering impatiently trying to see me. So some of what I was thinking was also, “Hey, I’m supposed to be looking at him…wish I was taller…”

Probably about a million things! I was thinking about how handsome DH looked, that the venue was perfect, wondering if we were walking too fast, hoping I wasn’t holding my bouquet too high, that it all felt so surreal, and feeling slightly uncomfortable that everyone was staring at me, but being too happy to care.

I’m tripping on my dress, kick your leg out to stop it, mum’s walking too fast, we’re not in time to the music, this went better when we practiced yesterday…
-A few minutes before the ceremony my ‘hoop’ skirt that we hired for the day to stop me tripping on my dress came lose and fell to low and wouldn’t stay up. So we had to take it off (while my dress was on becasue there wasn’t time to take my dress off and lace it up again) thinking I’m going to trip on it all the way down the aisle…but then I tripped on the font of my dress most of the way down. Annoying, I must have looked so stupid. Everyone thought the look on my face was nerves but it was the dress!

“Oh my God, here we go… don’t fall over… they made the aisle too small me and Dad will never fit down there with me in this dress… keep kicking your legs out so the dress doesn’t trip you up… don’t fall over… Fiance looks so handsome, but every time I make eye contact I almost cry, so I have to keep looking back down every couple of steps… Oh my God, what if I can’t look him in the eyes for our vows?… Stop your lip trembling, try to smile… It’s SO hot in here… Fiance looks really calm, why can’t I be calm?… I’m shaking so hard my knees are knocking together, I bet everybody’s wondering what’s making the noise… don’t fall over… I’m almost there now… Oh my God, I can’t believe we’re doing this RIGHT NOW… I’m about to be married… Oh my God… “
I didn’t cry or fall, but I was shaking so badly by the time I got to DH that he almost had to hold me up. However, as always, DH knew just what to do to calm me down – when the registrar said “we are gathered here today to witness the marriage of noodle4hd and DH” he pointed at himself and whispered “that’s me!” which made me laugh and then it was all fine. I was really glad because when we said our vows we said them looking into each others eyes the whole time and I was so calm and happy my voice didn’t shake at all.
Can’t believe it’s already almost a year since we got married! 🙂
