Editor’s note: The second topic for our After the Wedding series was to choose the most memorable object or moment from your wedding day. I’ll let the bees take it away now!
Looking back at the Campfire wedding, most of the day is a warm blur, punctuated with crystal clear moments filled with love. There is the “you may now kiss the bride” of course, and the feeling of seeing Sparky for the first time that day.
If I had to pick—and I did, otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this post—a few moments stand out more than any other.
The first: Sparky delivered breakfast/lunch to our hotel room and stood with his back to me when I answered the door. He refused to turn around, even though I was in a robe and yoga pants. As we sorted out which pastries were whose, Sparky’s were returned to him. As our door was closing he exclaimed, “Hey! There is a bite out of my chocolate croissant!” I smiled and licked the chocolate off my lips.
The second: Krista had lined us up for a group photo. It was one of the first ones of the day so we were all feeling a little bit awkward. Krista suggested that someone tell a joke and we all looked at each other, unsure. Finally, Apple Pie busted out with a hilarious, if dirty, joke. We couldn’t help but laugh.
As you can see: laughing hysterically. / Photo by Love Song Photo
