The Wonderful Wedding
Who would have thought that was started eight and a half years ago would lead to this…
The wedding was absolutely beautiful, down to each detail and personal touch. For having only 3 months to plan, they did such a great job! Everything from the colors to the centerpieces, the ceremony to the slideshow, was amazing! Some of my favorite moments:
Getting ready at my house! The bridesmaids all spent the night at my house after the rehearsal dinner, and it was organized chaos the next morning as we all straightened and curled hair, did each others make up, snagged a bagel breakfast, and made it into the limo by 10am!
Seeing my best friend walk down the aisle. She is always beautiful, but she was absolutely glowing. Her dress was perfect, and you could just sense the peace and joy emanating from her soul. Like I said in my maid of honor speech, I so admire her intuitive emotion and love for others! You could see her love for her husband on her face as she walked down to meet him.
Our youth pastor got to perform the ceremony! He has watched us grow up, and has been there since the beginning of my friend’s relationship. It was so awesome to see him bless my friends and their marriage.
Taking pictures in the beautiful weather! We got so lucky with the weather, since the ceremony was outside and we went to a nearby park to take pictures. It was sunny and beautiful, warm but not stifling. I can’t wait to see how the photos turned out!
The first dances! Amanda’s music choices were spot on. Everyone was in tears, especially after she danced with her dad to “I Loved You First.” I’m not a crier and it even got me!
The food! The eggplant rollatini in the cocktail hour was beyond words good. The vegetarian option at dinner was the best I have seen at a wedding, too! It actually contained veggies and not just a sad pile of pasta or other carb. It was a veggie stack of eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers with green beans and mashed potatoes on the side. Yum!
There was so much happiness and love surrounding my friends on their wedding day. I am so happy for them and am excited for them to begin the rest of their lives together! Congrats guys!
