Tying the Knot: The Ceremony

Everyone was seated and the bridesmaids were making their way down the aisle. I took a deep breath. The flower girls ventured down the aisle and I could hear the murmurs of adoration coming from our guests. My maid of honor gave me a reassuring smile and began her walk. The doors closed and my uncle and I stepped into place as the music began to change. I could hear our guests stand. My Uncle took my hand, put it on his arm, and the doors opened. It was one of, if not the best moment ever. My eyes fell on Chris, waiting at the end of the aisle. He was beaming. So was I.

The ceremony was perfect in so many ways. But it flew by. Before we knew it, it was time for the first kiss. Which we practiced before hand. And it too was perfect.

And then, we were married!


As we were walking down the aisle after being pronounced, the priest handed Chris our marriage certificate/licence. Like a quarterback handing off a football. Thus, it makes it's appearance in this photo.

Awww these are so sweet I want to cry! And I am not a cryer! I am loving all of your wedding pictures, but these are perhaps the most meaningful. It's hard to beat pictures of you walking up the aisle, and then back down with your brand new husband! Love it!
