Our wedding weekend was a whirlwind. I loved our wedding and when I think back, I love it even more. We got so many compliments about it being so easy going, which is exactly what I wanted. I kept telling myself all day "remember this- don't rush through this- remember what this exact moment is like", but still, I felt like I was having an out of body experience the entire time (but that may have also been the exhaustion I was feeling). SO much was going on, I still have a hard time remembering exactly what it was like to be there and take part in all the events. I originally wrote this stream-of-consciousness verbal diarrhea 3 days after the wedding, hoping I wouldn’t forget how it all went. I’m posting this solely for my own preservation of memories- it was faster to type my feelings than write them in a journal.
Monday it was back to normal- Vince went to school, I enjoyed my first weekday of fall break by going to mom and dad's for breakfast and starting our thank you cards. All we talked about was how GREAT and special the wedding day was. I meant to clean the house, but haven't gotten there just yet...Just have a couple more days before we leave on our honeymoon! I really liked our wedding while we were there, but was hot, tired, and nervous and didn't fully understand everything that was going on while we were there...but every time I think back to it, now that I’m not exhausted anymore, I love that day even more. We were oh so lucky that it didn't rain and it was a perfect day! The only things I would have changed were making my playlist and programs earlier in the week so I could have slept more and not been as nauseous-tired feeling all day, not letting the tent people leave without setting up (which caused a lot of rushing around for some people and I felt bad for the guys that had to do the work), and wishing I had more time to really visit with the people that came to our wedding- especially those that had to come from hours and STATES away to see us. We were so lucky to be surrounded by such love and support!
