The Wedding Recap: Moments Part 1

There were so many wonderful special moments on the big day, moments that I wrote notes down Sunday morning before brunch so I could post about it later. Those moments that are so strong and then fade over time, I wanted to remember them in detail. Here is a recap of the first part of the day.

I was in my room, my maid-of-honour had spent the night with me and I remember all my bridesmaids getting there to dress and put on makeup together. I was so excited, like a little kid on Christmas Eve and I remember stopping to take a deep breath every so often, deep breaths so I did not faint, laugh, or burst into tears. I am not typically a very in public emotional person and there was just so much emotion boiling under the surface. I am really glad the photographer got a shot like this because it really tells how I was trying to hold it all together and just enjoy.


TAKING A DEEP BREATH

In the limo on the way to the church I felt like Cinderella with my big poofy dress and all done up. I was super calm on the way to the church because I knew I was on my way to marry my soul mate.


CINDERELLA LIMO RIDE

At the church we had about an hour to take photos and the day although a bit chilly was a pristine day. There was a beautiful lake behind the church with a forest in the background and we got a lot of great shots with me and my girls. I love this one although not all of my bridesmaids are in the shot because we all look so happy and so happy like we were a bunch of super heroes out to take over the world.


GIRL POWER

Because we were having so much fun outside with the super power feeling and all we ended up going a bit past schedule and I wanted to make sure I made it back to the church before the limo pulled up. Lifting my spotless skirts high I ran back to the building just in time to miss the limo.


DON’T BE LATE

I held everything pretty well together all morning, so well that I did not let my perfect control slip, I think all that control finally broke when I was with my father behind the closed church doors waiting for our cue to exit. I remember my father asking me if I was ok, if I was nervous and really I was fine, I was fine that is until the pianist started playing the wedding march. Then I felt a crack in the control and I knew I was in trouble.


DADDYS LITTLE GIRL

My first look at Mr. Rogue and I knew everything was going to be ok, even though I had a crack in my control over my roiling emotions I just knew that I would be safe if I could just get to him as fast as possible. I think I may have dragged my dad a little faster than we were supposed to go and I did in all fairness try to keep an even cadence I just don’t know how well I succeeded.


THE GROOM AT THE ALTER

The wedding vows were so hard for me, I decided that I was not going to try and envision the wedding vows that I wanted them to be heartfelt and not rehearsed so I never looked at the paper the minister gave us of what we were going to say to each other. As I vowed to love and to cherish I completely lost any semblance of control and barely managed through the tears to get through the rest of the ceremony. I cried so much that Mr. Rogue started to cry and then the minister voice started to crack. I remember Mr. Rogue grabbing my hands to give me strength, I remember the minister reaching over and grabbing my other hand, I remember the love I felt in the room, and I remember all the raw emotion I felt as I gave my heartfelt vows.


SEALED WITH A KISS

Walking down the isle I was elated, we had finally gotten married and we were ecstatic. I particularly love the smirk of joy on Mr. Rogues face and my brilliant happiness looking into the camera.
