Every girl dreams of her perfect wedding, and let me tell you, this girl right here got hers September 11th. I mean, wait what? I’m not a girl… But I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding. My job was simple, stand up there and look handsome, NAILED IT! For those of you that don’t know, my Bride and I got married in a little stone chapel on top of a hill, just like in the fairytales. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the way the wedding turned out. My Bride was as beautiful as ever, if anyone has been by my Facebook page and seen the photo preview from our photographer you’ll agree. I was not in the least bit nervous about getting married, I was nervous about standing in front of everyone and kissing my Bride, but once the service started all of that went away because it was just she and I standing up there, no one else seemed to be in the room.
I was very proud of myself for only laughing once during the ceremony, and I tried my best to hold that in, so it came out as more of a full hearted giggle. Is that even possible?
I don’t really think I can ever put into words how pretty the setting of our wedding was. Frost Chapel at Berry College is an amazing place, Berry College itself is. If any of you get a chance to ride out there for the day I highly suggest you do it. It’s not all that far from you Susannah, *hint hint*. Being that I was the groom in this event and my Bride was well, the bridge, we don’t have any pictures of our own. But here are some pictures from a fellow blogger, and the person that set my Bride and I up, Blog 1, Blog 2, and Blog 3. I encourage everyone to go and look at her pictures.
We did things a bit differently for our wedding, I got to see my Bridge before she walked down the isle. We did what is called a “reveal”. I stood at the alter with my back turned, and when my Bride was ready she walked in and tapped me on my shoulder. As I turned around to see her our photographers took pictures of us seeing each other for the first time. I liked doing it this way because after a few pictures were taken, everyone left the church and it was just my Bride and I alone for about 10 minutes just enjoying each other, not in that way you perverts! Then we all went outside and finished up some bridal party pictures. BTW, or photographer was amazing, if anyone needs some pictures done we suggest you look them up, their website is www.hedgehogphotos.com. They are a young married couple that does this for fun. I hope they thought our wedding day was fun, because we feel like we put them through all kinds of heck.
One last little boring detail, my Bride gave me the one thing that I asked for out of this entire wedding. I let her have her wedding, so everything you see in the pictures is all her doing, and I think she did an amazing job. But I requested one thing, and one thing only. We left the church to Linus and Lucy, aka the Peanuts theme song. My cousin played the Organ and Flute for us, and one of my Groomsmen, Adam, and another good friend Casi sang when “God made you” during the lighting of the Unity Candle. Which by the way is something I tried to stop, the church had no A/C and it was hot, I wanted as few candles burning as possible!
Since all this wedding stuff is over with I’m hoping my Bride will get back to blogging, I know she’ll do a much better job recalling and telling this wedding story than I did.
