#teamwhywedding: The Walk Down the Aisle

Hey guys, happy Wedding Wednesday!

We are getting to recapping the ceremony, and I can't believe that Dave and I have been married for 2 months already. It has seemed like such a whirlwind! It was so fun to re-live these photos, and all the feelings that I had during this time!

From the beginning, we both wanted our ceremony to feel very personal, and also relaxed. Dave's uncle officiated for us (more on that at a later date), and the whole ceremony was written by me and Dave.

To start the ceremony off, we all had to get up to the front! We had some "garden music" playing, which is when the guys walked up the side. Dave made it pretty clear that he didn't want to walk down the aisle, so they walked in a line up to the front.

Next came our moms and the bridesmaids. They walked down to Clair de Lune by Debussy. Aren't our moms the cutest!!??

The bridemaids followed after that, also walking to Clair de Lune. At this point, all the girls were crying. My dad and I were waiting at the door of the barn, and I was just shaking like a leaf.

When the music changed, I just started sobbing happy tears. This was the moment I had been waiting for for so long, and it was finally here. I couldn't wait to see Dave. I am SO glad that my dad walked me down the aisle, because I don't know if I would have made it alone.

My dad and I walked down to a piano/cello instrumental version of One Thousand Years by Christina Perri, played by the Piano Guys. (yes- I know it is from Twilight, but it just always gets me).

Like I said, I was freaking sobbing. I was trying so hard to not look at our friends and family, because I knew that would make me cry more. I was just so happy and excited.

Dave's face is priceless. He is a very happy guy by nature, but this bright, genuine smile he had when he first saw me says it all. He was over the moon excited.

And this is where I finally looked up to see my handsome husband smiling at me. Straight cheesin, and laughing at myself for being such a sap.

Walking down the aisle to marry my best friend is something I will never forget. It was full of emotion, tears, happiness and laughter. And maybe a trip at one point, because who am I. 

Next week I will be talking about the ceremony, and give you a look at the vows we said. And because I know you are dying to know this--yes, I did sob throughout the entire ceremony as well.
