Wedding Week: The Ceremony

Yes it still wedding week. Apparently my idea to condense my wedding recaps into one week has now become two. And If I can't finish it by this week, I give up! Anywho.. here's our ceremony!
An interesting thing about the wedding process is the concept of time. There are moments when you feel that time is just creeping by, and you are like OMG just happen already! OK?? Can the day just be here? And moments where you think... "wait, just a few more minutes. Just 60 seconds."

Well this was one of those moments. If I a magic time wand, and could press the pause button I would have sat down in my dress, cried my eyes out, reapplied my make-up then walked up into to that church.

That's because Matthew had written a note for me at the church at the last minute. And then they handed it to me RIGHT before I walked in. It was the sweetest moment ever. I forgot what I did with the note afterwards, but it was the first thing I called my sister and asked her to track down when we got back from our honeymoon.

I love that our photographer got pictures of Matthew writing the note. And of me crying while reading it.


I was trying to pull it together as I walked down the aisle, but most of my friends told me they could tell
I was on the verge of tears. I guess it looks a little like a fish face? I am so glad they designate someone to walk you down. Thanks Pops! All that fishy face would be too hard by myself.

Once I made it to Matthew, everything was okay.

and we got to the part of the day where we forgot all of our lines...

flubbing our lines...
literally, we forgot what to say..
but everyone found it hilarious..and we finally got our act together
ok, ok get serious now..
muggin' down ..and now we did not talk about how we 'would kiss'
I love Matthew's fist pump lol
I gots myself a husband! Wowsers!!
lets party ya'll!

I've just found your blog, and it seems to be at the perfect time! I'm getting married in November so you know all these wedding posts are right up my alley now. As you said, sometimes it feels like it's creeping by and other times I'm like LET'S GO, I'm ready to have a husband! You and your husband look amazing on your big day and I love the pic of you reading his note. I'm following you now and I'm so excited to go through your other wedding posts!
