Wedding Recap: The Ceremony

After all of our fun pictures and formal family photos were complete, it was finally time to prepare for the ceremony.

We anxiously waited for all of the guests to arrive in a small holding area in the foyer of the church.  We tried to stay preoccupied by taking pictures and chatting before the ceremony…even still this wait seemed to take forever!

I was happy to have my veil covering my face to hide some of the tears that were beginning to form.  It was hard for me to walk down the aisle, but as soon as I was with Brian a feeling of relief, happiness, and contentment came over me and all of my fears were gone.

I loved hearing our friends and family sing and read aloud.  I loved the homily that Deacon Ben gave.  There was such a sense of happiness and love everywhere.  The ceremony was absolutely perfect and everything I hoped it would be.
