A Wedding Story Part Two

Getting Ready for the Wedding

After setting up the venue I went to my parents house to get ready. The same house I grew up in I was now getting ready to marry the man I love. My mom made me a sandwich and poured me a glass of champagne. The champagne glass was etched with the initial W for Wilson, this was to symbolize my last day with that name.

I think she got some in her mouth. 🙂

After we all got pretty Amber and I rushed back to 5th Street School to finish some last minute touches. The rest of my family would fallow with all my little nephews. I have four of them.

Waiting for the Ceremony to Start.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue

Nichole embroidered this hankie with my new initials for my Something New and Blue. The ring is my mom’s, she received it as her matron of honor gift  on the day of her sister’s wedding. This was my Something Borrowed. Lastly, the gold bracelet was a gift from Ryan’s mother Pia. It has been in her family for over 40 years. This was my Something Old.

Strangely I was not nervous at all I was only completely ready to marry the man of my dreams.

It had been windy and hot all week. All we could do was pray for the weather to change. Providence heard our whispers and blessed us with the perfect day.

This wedding was a day Ryan and I will never forget. After almost a year of planing, stressing, scrimping, saving and DIYing all the decoration it had finally all come together in one night of fabulousness! I would do it all over again in a heart beat! Well, maybe not the planning but the day of the wedding definitely!

Special thanks to my parents for all the financial and emotional support they gave to us. Also to all our friends and family that helped us with the setup and breakdown at 5th Street School. This day would not have been possible without  all of you!

Thank You.

It is now our One Month Anniversary and so far so good. Ryan and I know that we are about to embark on an adventure that will last a life time and just like a roller coaster it will have it’s ups and downs but we will always have each other to enjoy the ride!

It is hard to believe where we were eight years ago when it only seems a blink behind us.

As I said in my wedding vows to Ryan it took us eight years to get here but to be honest I fell in love with you the moment I saw you.

It Was Always You . . .
