Re-cap of Oct 8th. A little late but finally getting some time to play on the computer and wanting to reflect on the day!
I started the day out at 4 am from to a bloody nose that woke me up. At 5:30 am my maid of honor went on a walk with me around the neighborhood to ease jitters. Hubby spent the night at his parent’s house.
I held tight to my dad and took deep breaths. I walked down to Canon F and saw family and friends smiling as I made my way to my soon to be husband. Ceremony went awesome after I realized I didn’t need to be nervous anymore (was gazing at the cars going by through the stained glass and it dawned on me to relax). Only my mom caught onto my bouncing and toe tapping. Our soloist sang We Raise You Up (Josh Groban) and It’s Your Love(Tim McGraw) and did terrific. The ring ceremony got flubbed because I reached for hubby’s ring when the pastor told hubby to take mine. Also I was on the wrong side for the unity candle lighting. Hubby whispered this to me and I explained the train on my gown and long veil was like a dinosaur tail, I couldn’t just turn around without knocking a things over and tripping over things in my path.
After getting to the reception hall the bridal party and hubby and I sat at the head table for dinner (served 15 minutes late from our contract time and some of the chicken was pink which we got refunded for). My maid of honor had a really sweet speech and hubby’s best men both had great speeches too. Bummed the microphone volume was so low that only the head table and few front tables heard the speeches.
If you read from a recent post on this board and the wedding re-cap board I touched on the negative things that happened that I wish I could have stopped from happening or fixed.
