Iowanna Marry You: The Ceremony Begins

I only sat by myself for a moment or two to collect myself before joining the rest of the wedding party. Our prelude music had been playing sweetly when I left the sanctuary, and by the time I had walked out, I could hear the ending strains of “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay, instrumental by Vitamin String Quartet, playing. This was the music that our honored guests and Mr. D walked out to. First to walk was Mr. D’s grandmother, escorted by my step-brother A, who was also an usher:

Next was my grandmother who was escorted by our other usher, my younger brother B:

Then my step-father escorted my mother down the aisle:

This is EXTREMELY dressed up for my stepfather, who purposely coordinated with my mother. I thought it was adorable that he did this for me.

Next Mr. D’s father walked Mr. D’s step-mother down the aisle:

Finally Mr. D brought up the rear with his mother, along with Pastor Marty:

Once Mr. D took his place at the end of the aisle, the music changed to the next song. We chose the Vitamin String Quartet instrumental of “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat.

The wedding party processional began with BM C and GM S:
