Bubbling with Joy: We All Assemble

While I waited with my butterflies, the ceremony was getting underway in the pavilion.  Here is what it looked like all set up before the guests arrived.


Glorious glass wall!

The site coordinator, day-of-coordinator, and florists all did an amazing job making it look beautiful indoors. I couldn’t have imagined it any better, really. With all those windows, it even felt like we were outside, but without the rain, mud, and mugginess. Perfection! Here are a couple more shots of the flowers:


These would have gone on the arch outside, but worked just as well here over the wooden doors.


Mason jars hanging from the end of several rows lined the aisle.

Once our guests arrived and got settled, our prelude music began. We chose Stephen Bright, a cathedral guitarist in Austin, to play for the ceremony. He was lovely to work with, and he even learned a special song for my walk down the aisle.


Stephen and his very cool guitar

He started off with “#3″ by Ben Harper, as Best Man S escorted my grandma down the aisle first:


Then Mr. C’s dad and stepmom made their way to their seats:


And then his mom and stepdad:


Then Mr. C made his entrance, escorting my mom to her seat and taking his spot at the front:


Once Mr. C made it to the front, there was apparently a giant BOOM from a thunderclap outside. Being the ham that he is, he made like he was going to run.


But then he decided to stick around. Such a goofball.


Judge Watson (a family friend who presided over the ceremony), Mr. C’s brother P, and Best Man S made their way up to the front:


And then my girls NYC J and Chicago J walked down (to a piece called “The Canaries“):



Only two people left…my dad and me. We were still back in the bride’s room waiting for our green light.


A few words of wisdom as we were waiting to go outside

And just before we headed outside, the rain (heralded by that large thunderclap!) started up. So we got to bust out the fun clear umbrella that Mr. C and I had picked up the day before.


Rain doesn’t get us down!

And then we were headed out under the arbors to the pavilion, ducking raindrops and giggling the entire way. I will never forget that walk.

    @Mrs. Bracelet: It’s a must – you just never know! 🙂

    @bridesmomma: Thank you so much!

    @Miss Squirrel: The florists were awesome. They really went lush with the arrangements which made me so happy!

    @Miss Palm Tree: Thanks! I loved it too.

    @futuremrshicks13: I am guessing you are talking about the Ben Harper song? I think it may only be on the Live from Mars album…

    @DaniLyn: A great indoor option was definitely a must-have when picking a venue – just in case! It came in handy…

    @Mrs. Pony: Thanks! I really thought they did a great job too.
