Gloves in Love: We Walk

This post needs little to no explanation—we process down the considerable aisle. If you’d like to listen to our processional music, click here:

First, McGlovin and the priest emerged from the sacristy:


Then, in no particular order (seriously, I think that I just paired everyone up off the top my my head) came the bridal party. First, Heather and Jeff:


Rachael and Andy:


Nina and Ben:


McGlovin’s sister Abby, and her husband:


Then, finally, Best Man Colin and Maids of Honor Shannon and Caitlyn (my sisters):


The organ in the cathedral is a pipe organ, which means that the organist is facing the organ and can’t turn around to see what’s going on. So instead of playing a different song for my processional, the organist just played the “Trumpet Voluntary” for a while and then, after it could be safely assumed assumed that everyone had made it, played an incredibly grand flourish, and continued with the same. At first I was skeptical, but it was awesome. :) So, a few things happened as the grand flourish was playing: first, my dad asked if I was really sure this is what I wanted:


McGlovin got excited:

And Shannon began to weep—and, as it turned out, wouldn’t stop for the balance of the day. :)


My dad and I began our walk”¦

As I walked down the aisle, I wasn’t looking at Mr G at all. Instead, all I could really focus on was seeing so many of my favorite people—it’s really crazy when you have all of your friends and family staring at you at one time, and you can just feel, almost tangibly, the ridiculous amount of support that surrounds you.


But then, as we got closer and I looked from my brother to my mom to my sisters, I realized that the only person whose face I hadn’t seen yet was McGlovin’s. I looked up at the altar, into his eyes, and hive—every emotion hit me at once, and I lost it. I went from beaming bride”¦


”¦to ugly-cry in an eighth of a second.


Then my dad moved my veil, he shook McGlovin’s hand, and the ceremony began!


I know that most brides are looking for their spouse-to-be at the end of the aisle, but was anyone else awestruck by seeing so many of their loved ones as they walked down the aisle? Seriously, it’s amazing when the only people you are looking at are loved ones—you don’t know where to look because they’re all your favorites!

    Yes, this is what I think will happen to me too! That’s why I’m in favor of a first look instead. I’ll be too distracted when walking the aisle to really be able to actually look at him!

    That church (and organ) is seriously stunning!
    My organist has a rear view mirror of sorts so he can look at the priest for cues ;)
