Our wedding day was, simply put, the most amazing day ever. I think the story is best told in pictures, so I’ll go heavy on that.
My mom and I took a 2 mile walk that morning. The night before, I knew that I’d probably wake up early and not be able to sleep and that I’d need to do something to burn some nervous energy. I wasn’t stupid enough to run on my wedding day, but I knew a nice walk, especially with my mom, would do the job. It’s a good thing we did too, because I was the biggest ball of emotion and nerves ever. It’s so hard to describe the emotions I had – I constantly wanted to cry, yet I wasn’t sad, but didn’t feel particularly happy for some reason. I think it was just so overwhelming that my body and brain didn’t know to do. The really weird thing was that earlier in the week I had been completely fine. The emotion and nerves decided to hit me just the day or so before and then the morning of. The walk helped though, and when we got back I felt much better and was ready to get the wedding day started!
My mom had an amazing breakfast spread set up for everyone while we got ready.
The actual getting ready process was pretty relaxed, which was exactly what I wanted.
Suddenly it was time to go to the church and get married!
And then it was time to party!
This is just a tiny snapshot of the day. The rest of the pictures are on my personal Facebook account. Feel free to find them!
