Wedding recap: Ceremony

Here’s a few of my favorite pictures from our ceremony, which only lasted 10 minutes! We really did want to get the party started!

Wedding recap: Getting ready

I don’t remember much about Saturday morning. Ted and I woke up in our hotel room together and ate breakfast, and then I got dressed and quickly painted my nails. I also finished up the guy’s boutonnieres, and Ted made plans to print the reception place cards while I got my hair done. Yeah, we still rushed around on our wedding day, but thankfully everything came together!

At 11:30, my sister, mom, Ted’s mom, and I made our way to my regular hair salon to get our hair and makeup done for the wedding. A few days prior, I went to the salon to get red extensions put in specifically for the wedding day, because I wanted to do something funky on our big day. Yes, I loved them.

Best. Hair. Ever.

We all sat down, relaxed, and started getting our hair and makeup done for the wedding! I started getting antsy and it felt like forever before we were done, but I loved the results. My hair and make up came out exactly how I wanted.

When we all finished, it was time for us to get back up to Dover and to get to the ceremony site! We drove the 20 minutes from the hair salon to the hotel, my family quickly changed and I grabbed my dress, and we made our way to the site. We had to coordinate with Ted when we’d arrive so he wouldn’t see me, and I ducked into the site’s back room to prepare and get into my dress.

My mom helped Ted with his jacket, too. He got his suit custom made for the wedding!

Again, it felt like ages that I stood there, waiting to walk down the aisle. We didn’t have a bridal party, so only Ted’s grandmother and each of our mothers were escorted before my turn. I couldn’t wait to get this party started!

Wedding – one year later!

It’s been almost a whole year since Ted and I got married, and I never posted about it! Yeah, I know, I’m a bad blogger. Don’t most people like to talk about their weddings?

I loved our wedding. I loved the decor, the people, the origami flowers, MY HAIR, everything. Ted and I enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed celebrating our special day with those we love.

I’m going to spend the next couple days recapping our wedding day, from getting ready to glimpses of our reception. Next week, I’ll recap our honeymoon trip down the east coast and cruise around the western Caribbean!
