|Checking out her beautiful veil|
|Our flower bouquet baskets were incredible!|
|Vanessa was absolutely stunning!|
|Stacie came hours early to help Christie with setting up and all of the floral arrangements! It meant so much to me that she was there..|
The ceremony was so incredibly beautiful.. The weather was fantastic (a little chilly) and no bugs! The bridal party and Vanessa walked down the aisle to a MUSE song (the instrumental version), Exogenesis: Symphony, Pt. 3 (Redemption). Oh my word. I already cry everytime I listen to MUSE, especially Exo. Vaness began walking down the aisle at about 3:35 into the song (after the climax) and you bet I bawled like a baby! I was up there, shoulders shaking, quivering chin, tears rollin'.. Ohh the waterworks. Before we all walked, I told Lanae (who was standing directly beside/behind me) that it's up to her to stop me from crying if I lose it.. As I'm whimpering to myself and trying to pull it together, I began hearing Lanae talking to me like a vantriloquist, saying the most random words I've heard. All stealth, she whispered, "Baby rhino's. Tacos.".. "Cowboys."..."Jelly beans." Of course, at that point, we started to get the giggles. No longer was my face blubbering with tears, but instead I had to focus on keeping myself from busting out laughing, as she kept feeding me the most random words in the world. Good work, Lanae. I knew I could count on her!
Ohh what a sweet day it was. After the ceremony, we all had lemonade in the courtyard while the chairs were transferred inside to the reception area. The bridal party had our grand entrance, we all enjoyed a fabulous dinner and then came the speeches. In a recent post, I rambled all about my speech. Let's just say, it wasn't pretty. It was SO fun to have Dan & Stacie there! We danced the night away, and Justin even danced a little, despite feeling some pain with his foot.
