I'll be honest, I really don't know where to start with the wedding. I do not know if I am capable of expressing every emotion I felt or thought that went through my head. I will try my best but this might be harder than the words in my brain can express. I want this to show you our love for each other but give you details. It isn't something I take lightly as it is the day I laid down my life but in turn received another. I committed myself to loving another human being and serving him as long as I live.
The night before I hardly slept. Oh, might I add that I stayed up till three packing for the honeymoon. oops. Professional Procrastinator right here! I knew I needed to rest but it was nearly impossible to sleep when May 21 held a new beginning for me. I woke up around seven to finish painting some signs and take a shower. I did some last minute packing and then finally headed to get my hair done with the bridesmaids around ten. I was last, so I took a little venture to pick up some starbucks for me and the girls. I just really needed some time along to think and breathe.
Finally around noon it was time to head to the place it was going to happen! And oh. my. gosh. I was soooo amazed and surprised. It was everything I had hoped for and more. This is one of the many thanks I have to give my Mom. She went above and beyond and really made the wedding come together. I had the ideas, but she carried them out and really put the show on. Thank you again Momma!
In this post I want to share with you the details. :)
