The ceremony. During the wedding planning process, this was what I was looking forward to the most. It’s so easy to get caught up in the little details, the black hole that is Pinterest and comparing your wedding to those amazing styled shoots on Style Me Pretty. But for me, I knew the ceremony was going to be my focus, because at the end of the day the flowers go away, the music stops and all you have left is the marriage.
It was a decision of ours to have our best friend officiate our wedding. This was the easiest decision we made during the wedding process (and hiring Jen and Elyse were pretty easy (; ). So that handsome guy in the pictures above is our best friend, Phil. Words cannot describe how much it meant to us for him to join us in marriage. It was such a personal experience that I will cherish forever and I am so lucky to have this memory. He has known the two of us as long as we have known eachother (7 years) and has been there through the great, the bad, the college days, the long-distance relationship, 3 moves, and now our marriage. The ceremony was perfect (for us) and I am tearing up just thinking about how magical that moment was when I said ‘I do’ to my husband.
