PaC Man & Wife: Here Comes My Girl

I always knew what song I wanted to walk down the aisle to. Even before I knew who Mr. PaC was, I sure about the song. I fell in love with it as a little girl watching ECPOT’s movie Impressions de France. Beyond the enchanting melody, it resonated with me because of our French roots. My processional song? Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Aquarium” from The Carnival of the Animals. (You may recognize it from our video.)

Everyone lends a hand to pick up my skirt.

As my dad and I approached the edge of the garden, the DJ transitioned from the main processional song, “Maybe I’m Amazed,” into the bride’s processional song. What a magical moment! All of those years of hoping to hear that song and here we were.

Cool, calm, and collected. Not one ounce of nervousness!

Oh, the things a father must be thinking moments before he walks his daughter down the aisle. (We lucked out that he felt well enough to walk with me!)

Mr. PaC, recalling my dad’s remark that I was “his problem now,” makes a memorable face and gesture.
