J's mom died about 5 1/2 years ago and J was really missing her through this process. She didn't have a mom or even a sister to help her. Even tho' she had 4 attendants, she didn't have anyone to co-ordinate the way day. She was going to hire a wedding co-ordinator, so I volunteered. OMG I did not know what I was getting myself into.
First there was the delay in getting my hair done. His first appointment was 30 minutes late. I was stressed, but everything actually worked out for the better. Then there was the traffic jams. Then we got to the venue; the wedding was set for 3; we got there at 2 to set up. And guests were already there! I got a little thrown off my game.
On to the ceremony ... it was very nice, very succinct. It was a civil ceremony so it only took about 10-15 minutes. Then it was off to the receiving line and then pictures. The wedding was at a restaurant in this series of old buildings with some really cool features so the photos were taken there. At one point, there was a group of people at the park across the street. They looked like so much fun so we had them join us. Blue was already with us. Stilt walkers joined us ....
This is me and my girl.
There was some excitement towards the end of the night, but I don't think she ever found out which is what my goal was. All in all, it was a great day, that went by so fast.
Don't you just love weddings?
