I’m writing this fresh off the wedding train! I wanted all of my feelings and recollections to be as close to the wedding day as possible. While I waited several months for the photos to post this, the writing is very much real and raw in my newlywed voice. I hope you enjoy!
Everyone arrives at what feels like all at once. The makeup artist is asking where she can set up and my bridesmaids are ooing and awing over my morning attire like the sweethearts that they are. They’ve even brought me a steaming cup of Starbucks matcha!
But somehow, I managed to roll with it. And I’m so glad I did. Getting married inside turned out to be the best decision ever. You’ll see why soon…
I think in moments as big as a wedding we humans feel the magnitude of the day and rally to move forward in any way possible. With the help of Becky’s guidance, and the reassurance and encouragement of my bridesmaids I was able to pivot on plans that had been set in stone for almost a year. And I was able to do it with grace.
I think that’s one of my favorite lessons from being a bride. Life brings storms, but it’s the ability to put your chin up, smile, and stride through them that makes the challenges not so challenging, and maybe even blessings in disguise.
