Walking down the aisle was so incredibly surreal, but I was very, very happy that the aisle wasn’t long – I was ready to get to Mr. S!
And, wait – are those my pomanders?! I’m so glad that I did these and if nothing more, for keepin’ it simple. (FYI – I have 10 of these pomanders for sale on classifieds, message me if you’re interested, otherwise I’m trashing them!)
As we got up there, I started to wonder why I ever thought it would be a good idea to handle fire while full of nerves in a long flowing dress. Eek! Fortunately, no fires were set and after lighting the candle. Mr. S and I had a moment to giggle and talk, just the two of us.
Time for THE kiss. Remember my post about church tongue? Well, how do you think we did?!
… so that we could have a “grand exit” from the church with all of our guests around. While we opted not to do a toss or bubbles or any of the other fun options, just having everyone out there clapping was fine by us!

We had just an amazing ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how nice it was and while it was a little more modern (we spent a lot of time choosing music and readings that were special to us), the messages were still very spiritual and meaningful.
