Bees: I’m so happy to be back on the blog! Today I’m sharing my thoughts on a moment on our wedding day that really conveys who McGlovin and I are as a couple, even now—almost two years later. I hope you’ll share a memory or object of your own in the comments.
While there are so many awesome memories from our wedding floating around in my head, one moment that really shines through is at our reception, when we were dancing the polka. A polka might not have necessarily been my first suggestion for our wedding reception, but it’s a tradition in McGlovin’s family and was a fun break from “Call Me Maybe.”
We love our newbees! Our newest blogger bee met her fiance on Facebook…how Millennial of them! Please join me in welcoming our newest bee, Miss Angelfish, to the hive!
Miss Angelfish, Laurel, Maryland Age and Occupation: 26, Public Transportation Service Monitor Fiancé’s Age and Occupation: 44, Federal Protection Officer Engagement Date: April 27, 2014 Wedding Date: May 2015 About Me: I am a line dancing, fiction writing, charity supporting hopeless romantic. I spend my days working as a public transit service monitor, and I spend my evenings and weekends working in charitable and social organizations. I am a self-proclaimed book nerd who loves designer handbags, tech toys, and Christmas. I met the man of my dreams on Facebook through mutual friends, and we now have a beautiful son together. When my love and I aren’t enjoying family time, you can find us running in every 5K, 10K, or half marathon we can find. It was after my first half marathon that my wonderful FI asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with him. After that, we hit the ground running (hehe) on our marathon of wedding planning for May 2015.
So while I am waiting on the last of the photos to roll in I figured I would take the time to do something a little fun. Miss Hen talked about the “Wedding That Almost Was” and now that I am on the other side I thought it would be fun to let you in on a little secret. The wedding we had was not the wedding I wanted.
First up was MOH Sis. You may recall MOH Sis had never been in a wedding and researched and Pinterested the heck out of every aspect of her duties (which is extra funny when you consider she asked for an ax for Christmas—she’s much more into camping than crafting). She also wasn’t thrilled to speak in front of others, but she did a fantastic job.
We took a brief photo-taking break where we all chilled out in front of some fans and drank lots of water. Our guests arrived and were greeted by some of our cousins/greeters. They were given this program (edited for you lovely hive), and they were asked to participate in our ring warming ceremony before taking their seats.
I still find rings an incredibly meaningful type of jewelry. Nothing else I wear ever means as much as my two rings, both the ring symbolizing Mr. Funnel Cake’s promise and the ring symbolizing our commitment to one another forever.
