As a child you visualize a lot of things and a wedding is one of them. I can’t say I’ve been obsessed with this day my entire life but my wedding is something I’ve always looked forward to.
It’s strange to have a weekend dedicated to you and your life. For those who don’t know, I’m not one for the center of attention. I don’t like all eyes on me. I have a blog and I’m able to write but to have 100 eyes on me was not something I looked forward too. At least with blogging, if people grow tired of reading they can click out…
The actual wedding:
To be honest I had the perfect wedding and I didn’t stress about it. Of course there were a few brief moments that I was lucky to complain to my parents, bridesmaids and T but I wasn’t perpetually stressed for a year. I have too much other stuff to stress about versus a celebration. I don’t have a lot of advice to give because honestly I took each day as it came. I trusted the wedding vendors, caterers and everyone involved. They are the professionals, not me.
The second part of no stress was T and I took the wedding as a giant party. Why get stressed about something that you know is supposed to be a celebration? We spent time and effort on things that were important to us such as music, food and cake.
I’ll probably do quite a few wedding posts. It’s a running blog, diner blog and for the next month a wedding recap blog too. There is so much to talk about and I’m sure parts will be lost in the cracks.
In March, my dad gave me the best advice:
“A wedding is like a freight train. Once the freight train has left the station, you cannot do much to stop it. What happens, happens”.
I really took that advice to heart. Once we began planning, we just allowed the punches to role and things to happen.
Here are a few sneak peak photos. I think photos tell more of a story than thousands of words. My photos were done by Justice Images and I think they did an amazing job capturing the day.
We truly had such an incredible time and I cannot think of one thing I would do differently. I will always be grateful for the support and help from friends and family as well as the wedding guests, vendors and caterers.
I plan to talk more about my caterers and vendors.
The ceremony (if anything just show a bunch of pictures…because they are truly incredible)
The reception (hashtag so much dancing)
I already rambled away about how much fun we had on our honeymoon.
So please feel free to follow along in such an important and incredible moment of my life…or just skim and wait for the diner and running posts…
