Oh my darling hive.
It’s that time again—time for another round of recaps to start! I’m happy to announce that this time it’s ours—the Camera wedding. It was, well, picture perfect:

I’m no Jennifer Aniston (but gosh do I wish I was…I mean hello—Friends obsessed me of course wishes that), but I like to think our day was pretty fantastic. Sure, a few small things were overlooked or just plain forgotten, but all in all, the day went exactly how I wished it would have.
At least I think—it happened so fast I barely remember.
I know people say this over and over, and I heard it myself, over and over, but:
THE DAY GOES BY FAST. LIKE SUPER FAST. LIKE WARP SPEED.
I have a terrible memory, this is true, but I feel like terrible memory + bride brain = NUCLEAR DISASTER. Or for those of you who are more visual people:
So please. PLEASE. Do yourself a favor and concentrate on what is happening that day. Remind yourself to take mental pictures of the day. Luckily, you’ll have actual pictures, but trust me—if you don’t concentrate on what is happening, the pictures will almost feel like you’re looking at someone else’s wedding.
That’s the only thing I would change if I could do it over again—remember more. OK, maybe there are a couple other small things I’d change, and I’ll mention those later, but the big one is that I wish I would have remembered more. I’m in the midst of the angry PWD (that’s post-wedding depression for those of you who are still engaged and living in a world of hearts and sunshine), and I’m trying hard to get out of it, but I can’t help but feel that if I remembered more of our wedding it would be better.
I’ve devoted the last year of my life to this one day, and—let’s face it—the majority of my teenage years and 20s, toward thinking about devoting my life to this one day, and now I can hardly remember it. It’s making these few weeks after the wedding even harder than I thought they’d be. Luckily, I have an amazing, supportive husband in Cam who constantly reminds me that yes, our wedding happened, yes, it was great, and yes, it was one day, but it was the one day that we needed to have to start the rest of our lives together.
I’m glad he’s around.
