These top pics are from our ceremony. I love how our sisters matched the flowers, and stood out against the ocean tones. If you notice the top right photo, it is of our ring bearer (my nephew) trying to deconstruct the pillow. Advice to all brides, this probably isn't earth shattering, but I had never thought about it before, DO NOT HAVE YOUR WEDDING RINGS ATTACHED TO THE PILLOW WHEN IT IS IN THE HANDS OF A SMALL CHILD. At any given time, he was untying the ribbon, twirling it around, swinging it in people's faces, throwing it on the ground, you name it, if the rings had been on it during the ceremony, they would've been lost. With that said, I still recommend having a ring pillow, they are such a great element that add to your design story.

I was apprehensive about sharing the photo of me tearing up. Never in a million years did I think I would tear up, but boy did I. Here I had spent so many hours of dedication to all of the elements of the wedding weekend, but the actual ceremony I left in the hands of the Reverend. We didn't write our own vows, it wasn't something we felt the need to do. But I can't begin to tell you how profound that moment was, I didn't think I would lose it, and I did. So ladies, have your handkerchief ready, I didn't think I would cry and I did.
