We did it! The moment we first kissed as a married couple was one of my favorite of the entire day. Heck, the entire year. Everyone was clapping and cheering and I felt like I was in a dream. I’ll never forget it.
After we pulled ourselves together, our gorgeous wedding party made their way down the aisle.
…and Sparks and I headed off for a few minutes alone. We rushed through our reception space, oohing and ahhing over everything that had been set up, and ran upstairs for a glass of celebratory champagne. Having that moment alone was really important to us. We wanted to let the ceremony sink in and appreciate everything that had just happened before rejoining our guests. If you can work a private moment like this into your day, I highly recommend it! The photos we got during that time are some of my favorite from the entire weekend.
While Sparks and I were busy admiring our new bling, our guests were heading into the courtyard for cocktail hour!
