Wedding Recap: The Ceremony

Our ceremony was scheduled to begin at 6: 30 p.m. The music started at 6:40 p.m. I was surprised at how early our guests were arriving. Me, the bridesmaids and my photographer Corey arrived at the venue at about 5:45 p.m. and as we entered, my bridesmaids actually had to hide me with their bodies and bouquets from guests trying to enter the building.

Hubby and I had both written short vows, but besides that our ceremony was very simple–no readings, no singing, just our vows and prayer. It lasted about 25 minutes from start to finish, and though it was short, it was meaningful. It was perfect and exactly what we wanted.

Then came my entrance. I walked a long way–around the entire atrium of the tower to Diana Krall’s “Look of Love.” Guests could see me as I walked b/c the building is completely open.But my groom could not. It was very dramatic…

I met my mom at the entrance to the ceremony space and she escorted me to my groom–an honor well-deserved!

    Jenna: Actually, I was ‘cool as a fan’ LOL! I was not nervous at all! Hubby knew I was doing the walk like that, so it was a surprise only to the guests… The main thing I liked about it was that I was peeking and could see all the guests seated and the bridal party coming in. And, I LOVE my processional song so much…I was glad it could play almost all the way through b/c of the long walk (the actual aisle was fairly short)…

    Nikki: Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoy:)
