We did it! Some Early Photos and Wedding Afterthoughts
I have so much to tell you I don’t even know where to start! I have a few blogs planned over the next few weeks about the wedding but I am waiting for my professional photos (they will be amazing) to come in before I post them.
Until then, I put together this little collage with some pictures friends took. The sunrise was a gorgeous light blue, pink and orange. The morning was quiet and cool (or as cool as it could be during an intense heat wave) and the sound of waves crashing onto the beach was better than any rendition of Pachelbel’s Canon.
Like so many brides, in retrospect there are a million things I would have done differently and I eventually want to share those things with you because I wish someone would have told me (and that I would have listened).
I feel like I am just now able to look at photos from friends and family and not see every little flaw in the way my hair and make up looked or the way I wanted the flowers etc etc. I drove my self insane, seriously I was crazy. (Did anyone else feel like they were out of their own body?)
But today . . . today I can breathe again and I am happy. Very happy. I am thinking how cute it was that a morning ATV patrol designated to saving sea turtles drove by during the ceremony.
I’m loving that as the sun was rising, you could still see the moon setting.
I am dying to share video with you and tell you more about our reverend and why he was the best thing that happened to our ceremony!
. . . and I can’t wait to show you more of the mini cakes in a jar that my mom made as our wedding favors and gorgeous cake my aunt made for our brunch.
More soon . . .
P.S. So much love for all of my friends and family who made it all the way down to North Carolina for the wedding. My heart is overflowing with appreciation and joy that you were there with us! I can’t say it enough.
