Well Helloooooo!October 6, 2008
I am back and we’re married! It was the most beautiful day – family and friends gathered from all over, we were finally able to say “I do”, and the weather could not have been better. Just as the ceremony was ending and we were heading out on the getaway boat, the sun started to set as if on cue…it was unreal. Don’t get me wrong, not everything went according to plan, but despite all the little mishaps it was still lovely. Our amazing photographers have already shared a handful of pictures which leave me practically dying to see the rest. I’ll space them out over a couple of posts in order to provide ample commentary
We debated about this one but ultimately decided to see each other before the ceremony. I think it’s a really personal decision but it turned out to be the right one for us for sure. We met for the first time that day on a pier and you wouldn’t know it by this picture but it was WAY more crowded that we expected! My bridesmaids were walking down the pier asking people if they wouldn’t mind getting into their boats for just a second so we could take a few pictures, and they would turn around and look at me like we were bananas. But it was worth it:
This is our entire wedding party, with the exception of the ushers. Two of the four attendants are family members and the other two are some of our best friends, so for us it was perfectly intimate. Apparently I was the only one that didn’t get the “lean on the pole” memo:
Me and the girls…they were both so adorable that I just kept staring at them all day. I still get all emotional just thinking about how wonderful they were.
And the getaway boat, complete with two bottles of chilled champagne. It was by far one of my favorite moments of the day!
