FROM THE BRIDE

Thinking back about the day still gives me joy. I did not sleep much the night before my wedding day, because there were so many thoughts and emotions running through my head. From the moment I woke up we began checking things off my list, and it became clearer that my moment was almost here. Hair, makeup, photos, dress, all were being checked off my list, one by one. While everything moved around me I remember feeling an inner peace. It was as if someone whispered, “everything would be perfect”.  Everything felt right in that moment.

Butterflies filled my stomach, and on came my song. My brother walked our dogs Sadie-Rae and Scout down first, and then my father escorted me down the aisle, handed me off to my “husband” and our ceremony began. I remember seeing him for the first time, waiting for me at the end of the aisle. It’s a difficult moment to describe, but when you see forever waiting for you it is overwhelming. In that moment, we held hands. Holding Joeys hands and looking into his eyes was one of the happiest moments in my life.

We finished the ceremony, had our first kiss as Mr. and Mrs! For the first time we were announced as husband and wife! I couldn’t believe it! We had decided early on that we wanted a more intimate to do communion after the ceremony, with only us and the pastor. We felt this was our vow before the Lord.  It gave us time to let everything set in and a moment of silence to thank God for all that He has given us.

Not long after our vows and the pictures, the party began! We started our party with an amazing dinner, speeches, dancing, dessert bars, photo booth fun and a late night espresso bar! Before my wedding I was given great advice from my sister-in-law to just enjoy and take in every moment (anticipated or not), because it is over in a blink. I love being a wife and, looking back, would not have changed a thing about our wedding! I am so appreciative to everyone who helped our fairytale wedding play out.

 

What was your favorite moment from your wedding day? // Walking down the aisle and seeing Joey for the first time. We both felt strongly that we wanted the first time seeing each other to be when I walked down the aisle. And Joey’s only request was that the aisle be long enough for him to take the moment in.

What inspired you while planning your wedding & decor?  //  I wanted simple timeless elements, lace, pearls, roses, and diamonds combined with the natural rustic elements in the venue.
