Our Perfect Day

So let’s talk about the wedding, people!! What can I say? It was the most beautiful day of my life, and everything was perfect. I felt like a princess that was joined together with her handsome prince.. it was wonderful!!

My perfect day started at 7am, when I woke up to the sound of my cell phone alarm... now usually I would hit the snooze a couple time, but not today... I shot right out of bed. After a quick breakfast with two of my bridesmaids I headed to Downtown Sacramento to get my hair and makeup done (while in the back of my mind, picturing Joseph and the boys playing video games, that’s if they weren’t still asleep).

When I got to the Church at 12noon it hit me... I was getting married today!! I was no longer going to be someone’s girlfriend or fiancee... I was going to be someone’s wife and partner through life. That was a heavy feeling. I started to get ready in the Bridal Suite at the church, and started to sweat.. thank God for my girls, who willingly fanned my pits as I breathed deeply. Throughout the chaos of getting dressed and touching up my hair and makeup, the photographers and videographers were busy taking my shoes, bouquets, and dress for photo op’s.

When the girls starting lining up for processional my heart began to race, and as soon as those big doors opened and I caught a glimpse of Joseph I started to cry. I didn’t think I would, but seeing all of our friends and family together to witness our marriage was so powerful, and I couldn’t hold back.

The day went on without a hitch, and I was beaming with happiness... how did I get so lucky?!? My husband (OMG, it sounds so great!!) is the most amazing man I have ever met and he’s all mine... how sweet it is. We walked into the crowded reception hall to “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen, and our first dance was to “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison. Joseph and his mom cried during their mother-son dance to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Iz, and my Dad and I clowned around to “A Wink and a Smile” by Harry Connick Jr.

It was a blissful day... and now I’m a married woman!!

It was so fun hearing your excitement about your upcoming day these last few weeks (months?). And now you are married. I'm so glad it went so well. I hope when you hit 21 years as I have, your memories of that day will still be as fresh. I can remember so many details of that day and the days leading up to it. I love that.
