Wedding Photos: Ceremony

Our wedding ceremony was such a blur. A beautiful, emotional blur. It's crazy how months and months of planning go into this one 20-30 minute period of your life, and then it's just over. But that's why you have photos taken, right? : )

Ok, now...may I suggest that you listen to one or both of the following songs while you look at these? The first, "Song for Zula" by Phosphorescent, was our processional and is by no means a romantic song. In fact, the lyrics are kiiiinda anti-love. However, the music procures exactly the moment I wanted while walking down the aisle. Besides, you can't really tell what he's saying, anyway ; ).
The second, "You Can Have It All" by Yo La Tengo, was our recessional. Matt and I had such difficulty settling on a recessional song. We're talking playlists on playlists on playlists. So it was quite the relief when this one popped up in iTunes and we both knew it was the perfect one.

The stems on my bouquet were too long when I took it out of it's vase, and we had only moments to spare before we were supposed to walk. Luckily, Matt and I's friend Brian (also our officiant) is the type of person who can make anything happen. So he picked up one of the knives off of the table, and made it work. Just one of the many reasons we love him.

His vows were amazing. Mine were good, but I'm not ashamed to admit that he blew me out tha water. Not a dry eye in the place.

    1. Haha, yeah, that was one of the best moments of the day : ) Everyone was laughing so hard because, if you know Brian, you know that's something that only he could do : )
      And thanks! I debated it for awhile because of the lyrics, but then just decided to say, screw it, everything else about it is on point.

  5. I honestly cannot get over how beautiful your wedding was. And the pictures. And you. Just everything. I'm a little bit obsessed with all of the photos you've been posting and I'm not afraid to admit it.

    1. Aww, Elana, you are so sweet! (I keep looking at them and pinching myself too). I keep thinking that it's unreal that this was MY wedding. Everything was so beautiful and perfect.
