The Ceremony, Part I

Just a word of caution - this post is picture heavy. Why? Because a picture is worth a thousand words and I just don't have time for a thousand words, people. The photos tell their own story. However, my snarky comments make the story that much more fun (for me, at least).


 This is after we'd taken the first look, family and formal shots. I was sequestered away as the guests started to arrive. This is me attempting to escape the hidey-hole. I swear to God, this was the longest thirty minutes of my life. I was SO bored and antsy and people kept coming in and saying stuff to me and I was like, "Get the eff outta here and let me chill! I'm getting married in a few minutes!" OK, I totally didn't say that. I just wanted to at one point. However, I think someone (maybe my MOH?) figured it out and got rid of everyone so I could chill. So to whomever did that, thanks! Much appreciated!


Yup, the nerves are kicking in! You can tell by the vein popping out on my neck. I think some more make-up is in order. Lip-gloss, maybe?


Make sure you have some water around. I was parched. Again, I have no idea where the ice cold water came from, but I really appreciated it.


Key players in formation? Check! Wait. Where the hell is the Best Man?


My Mommy MOH telling her daughter she's up next.


Come on! Look at he little feet all criss-crossed! How freakin' cute is she!?!


I don't know if you guys remember me telling you this, but the Flower Girl ran out of petals about half-way down the aisle. Apparently, she was paying so much attention to the task that she over-allocated petals and ran out! I think this is her "uh-oh" moment. Happily, mom coaxed her the rest of the way down.


My turn! I absolutely adore my veil in this shot.


Sharon, Jonathon's (my photographer) wife took this shot. She told me later that she was so upset that I walked in and looked directly at her. I have no recollection of this at all, but I think it's a great picture. I do look slightly on the freaked out side.

Up next? Well duh, it's going to be Part II, where are the hot-vow and steaming-smooching action happens! Can I just tell you, I totally get misty when I look at all the vow photos. I am so shocked I didn't bawl during the ceremony. Who of the married blog-ladies out there hit the water-works hard during their ceremony. Anyone?

I'm not sure what I can say about your wedding that hasn't been said before. Perfect. Classic. Beautiful.

I'm getting freaked out for my own day just because of how much you keep talking about how freaked out you looked/felt! :) But those shots are indeed so great. They do tell a wonderful story.

I wonder if I will want to kick people out of my bridal cottage on our big day when I am tucked away before the ceremony? Reason I wonder is because the cottage sits right on the patio that the guests need to walk by in order to get to the ceremony site...so they may try to peek in on me and I will have to have a bridesmaid go off on them :)
