Those are just a few of my favorite pictures that were taken in-between our ceremony and reception. We took a ton but these are just a few of the ones that stand out to me. In case you were wondering why I have 2 other siblings besides Melissa, they are our half-siblings. I think I have mentioned that before in the past. Our Dad had 2 children from a previous marriage and those are our two half-siblings, Gennifer and Josh. They are a lot older than both of us and we don’t see them all that often. This picture of the four of us was the first picture that we have all taken in about 15 or more years! I was so happy that we were able to take an updated picture and I love it.
It was surreal taking pictures and spending those moments with our friends and families. During these pictures, I was taking in each and every moment. Thinking to myself, we are surrounded by those who love and support us right now. We are lucky. I also felt much more relaxed at this point because I knew we were going into our reception and were going to have a great time. The only thing that I think Mike and I were both nervous for was our first dance. Once we got through that, I think we could get through anything.
I still find myself getting emotional and missing planning our wedding when I look at these pictures. I put so much time and effort into every single detail and I am really proud at how everything turned out. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I will be recapping details of certain things that I have shown or haven’t shown yet. The next recap will be of our reception. I’m excited to share that with all of you. I hope you are enjoying my recaps as much as I am enjoying sharing them with all of you.
Have a lovely Wednesday!
