I was going to wait until I had all of my pictures, but since I've had a little bit of time on my hands and was browsing WBC, I decided to post the ones from my photographer's blog. We are extremely happy with the pics we saw and can't wait to see the rest...I hope you enjoy them!
I'd be lying if I said everything went perfectly. There will always be things that go wrong--it's just how you handle them that is important! We had beautiful weather and an awesome ceremony. FH loved my dress and said I must have read his mind because he loves a lady in red. I really couldn't have asked for more than that. And besides, we were married at the end--sounds like a successful day to me! :-)
I ran 40 mins late to my own wedding. lol So ladies, please leave enough time for you to get ready--especially if you are doing everything yourself. It is important to have time to yourself before you walk down the aisle. You need that little bit of relaxation. I didn't have it, but it all worked out. However, FH told everyone that I was well worth the wait. I broke my bustle before I even left out the cabin. I stepped back and ripped the thread that was holding up my skirt. We couldn't get my bracelet to fasten (although I had done it before). My earring fell out right before I was going to walk out the door and then couldn't get it back in...luckily my MOH found me a backing I could use.
We definitely have a memorable moment in our wedding. I was so rushed at getting ready, that I forgot to make sure my MOH had my husband's ring (should have given both to the Pastor or the bestman). So when it got time to do the rings, we had to pretend. LOL Hubby and I laughed about it then and we laugh about it now. We didn't freak out or get mad. We laughed it off and continued on with the ceremony. A few guests said they didn't know! He got it before we did our formal pictures.
As I said--don't let the little things get to you. Have fun and enjoy your day. That is what is important.
I received lots of compliments on my dress, the flowers, how lovely the ceremony was, and the decorations. I also received lots of compliments about the Out of Town bags...they were worth putting together. So it all is worth it.
Happy wedding plans to you lovely ladies who are still going at it...I do have to admit though, even though we had a small wedding I am really glad it is over.
