Glamnuptials: Ceremony Part 1
Now for the next episode of the Glamnuptials… Bride realizes that there was no turning back.
On our way to the church, it finally hit me. I was getting married today and the nerves kicked in majorly. I don’t know why I felt like this, but my stomach was in knots. Thank goodness my daddy was in the limo with me, so we had some time to talk and bond before he finally gave me away.
When we approached the church, I was even more nervous but so excited at the same time. Just before I was ready to walk in, my MOH was fixing my dress and I just stood there in my little bubble. I had to take a mintute to take in everything that was going on.
When it was time to go… to finally do the march to our awesome song (feathers theme – from Forrest Gump), I took my father’s hand and tried to hold back the tears. Apart from the fact that I was getting married, to have my father walk me down the aisle meant the world to me.
One by one they walked in – my mother (in the salmon color) had to walk down with out flower girl and ring bearer because they didn’t want to do it alone. Luckily they didn’t cry or cause a scene, so that was good.
When we stepped in, everyone was looking at me and I couldn’t help but have the biggest smile on my face. It was a magical moment and I was so happy to have all our family and friends present. When I saw Marc-André, my eyes got all teary. I didn’t cry – which is a miracle because I cry at anything. But I couldn’t stop looking at my future husband, and it simply made it more true… I was marrying the man of my life.
Once, the pressure of the “I do’s” were done, it was now time to kiss the groom. And honestly it felt like we were the only two people in the room. Plus, Marc-André went for an encore… so I got to kiss the groom twice. Talk about lucky!
Now there’s more ceremony to come, and let me tell you I have a pretty funny story to share with all of you. So stay tuned, because this wedding is far from being over.
