As the minutes ticked by, I started to get a little anxious that my dress wasn’t on. But I was also nervous about putting it on. I knew that once I was dressed the day would become very real, and I didn’t know how much longer I could hold my emotions together. The room was filling and getting louder, and I wasn’t hearing anything specific, just noise. Somebody asked me how I was feeling, and I think I responded with a hint of panic: “I just want to get my dress on!”

So, everyone was in my room and I couldn’t change in front of everyone. MOH Wino took the dress down and we went into the bathroom to get the dress on. And then we moved to a prettier scene for the finishing touches.

Holding myself together. It’s real. I’m getting married today.
My pretty pink shoes! They are Nina Electra in fuchsia.
The moment seemed quiet. I was certainly very much in my head and feeling an overwhelming sense of emotion. I was grateful for my mom and sister and best friend to share this moment with. And I was happy to turn around to more of my favorite women. With last instructions from Sara, it was time to head off to our first-look location.
