If you missed the first part of this series about my wedding day, check it out here !
I believe we left off with my wonderful father getting ready to walk me down the aisle, yes?
This was my husband’s first time seeing me all day. His expression is priceless to me.
Our aisle runner actually broke as mine and Jeremy’s brothers rolled it out. Doh! I tripped a little over it, but it wasn’t the end of the worldI’ve never been all that graceful anyway.
We both wanted the vows we exchanged to be original and unique to us, so while we did repeat the traditional “to have and to hold,” we also threw our own flair into it.
I promised to be his video game partner for life. If you knew my husband you would understand.
We kept our reception pretty low key. We just wanted our guests to relax, have fun, and dance!
This is a semi-food blog, so let’s start with the cake:
Ours was created by a local cake specialist and if I remember correctly (you have NO time to eat on your own wedding day) it tasted divine. The layers alternated between chocolate and vanilla. Our top tier is still in J’s parent’s freezer, so we’ll break into that when we return home for a visit.
All throughout wedding planning, I begged J to not smear cake on my face during the cake cutting. I spontaneously decided to do it to him instead. He got me back, no worries.
Our first dance.
I hope I never forget how loved and beautiful I felt on my wedding day.
These are just a handful of the memories we made on our special day that I wanted to share with you. Some memories were too special to share and have been kept private, while others were too funny to keep to myself.
