After we enjoyed our last song with everyone, it was time for our last dance just the two of us. We danced to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perry, another special song of ours.

While we were dancing, our friends and family were outside getting sparklers ready. Now back story: since we weren’t heading out on a honeymoon (just a quick mini-moon), we planned to go through the line of sparklers and get right into our getaway card. Partway through the evening (sometime between Pitch Perfect and Spice Girls), I noticed that Mr. O had gotten pretty agitated. It turns out that getaway car wasn’t outside like it was supposed to be. Which meant that none of our things were in the car, and that we definitely couldn’t leave.
Hive, I’m not a “let it go” type of person—you must know this by now. But that night, I wasn’t up for fighting or arguing; I just told him to let it go. They aren’t here? That’s their loss, because they won’t be tipped or given positive reviews.
And seriously, Indy brides, if you’re considering renting a car, please get in touch with me before you do! I don’t want anyone else to have the same issues we did! When the car arrived 30-plus minutes late, they were arguing about payment (which had already been taken care of). Then, when we got in, the driver asked us for directions. Even though he had a smart phone and a printed map, we had to direct him. I know that probably seems minuscule, but we just wanted to enjoy the last few moments of our night as we drove away, and we definitely didn’t want to be giving directions. Those small things, in addition to being late, really upset Mr. O that night.
But back to the fun stuff!
Batman plays with sparklers—I am not surprised!
And here we are!
Since we didn’t have a car to get into, Stacy told us to ham it up and of course we obliged.
And just like that, we were in our (very late) getaway car, heading to our hotel. The day that we had planned for so long had come and gone in a whirlwind of love and smiles. We couldn’t believe that it was over, that we were husband and wife, and that we would only get a few hours of sleep before our mini-moon.
We got back to the hotel and stored everything away, snuggled up, and let it all sink in. We were husband and wife!
