things I remember about my wedding day:
-I remember waking up feeling so good. And even more surprised I’d slept through the night. This was HUGE because I’m known to not go to sleep the night before something I was excited about, and this was probably the most exciting day of my life.
-I remember watching everyone hustling and bustling around our house that morning, arranging flowers, tying bows on chairs, moving benches around, etc. And I remember feeling so incredibly grateful and so incredibly happy to have all of my favorite people making everything come together perfectly.
-I remember driving to the temple with Juan, both of us laughing in the car about how bizarre it all was and how crazy it was that this was really happening.
-I remember my mom helping my get ready and feeling overwhelmed by her love and how blessed I was to have my mom and one of my best friends.
-I remember finally finding Juan before we got sealed. There was a mix up and I thought he was coming to find me and he thought I was coming to find him, so he was waiting quite a while haha. The same thing happened again AFTER we got sealed. The ladies told me to wait for him to come get me, and the whole time he was waiting for me in the front!! I had been ready for a solid 20 minutes before they finally let me go find him!!
-I remember waiting with Juan right before the sealing. This was one of my favorite moments of the day. Sitting with him, taking a moment to soak it all in. And as we watch all of our family and friends walk into to the room, my heart almost BURST from happiness!
-I remember not thinking I would cry. Boy was I wrong. What was I thinking haha
-I remember feeling beautiful, I felt like glitter would shoot out of my face because I was just beyond happy. But mostly I remember how beautiful everybody else looked. I was overwhelmed that everyone was here for us and that everyone was smiling and gracious. And I’m a sucker for matching, so I loved everyone in all their wedding attire!
-I remember the weather was PERFECT. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. This time of year and this incredible spring weather will always take me back to that day.
– I don’t remember much about standing in the line, if I’m being honest haha, but I remember once we got out of the line and sat down to eat, I looked out at the magical twinkly light scene in front of me and at my husband next to me. I didn’t want to be anywhere else in the world.
-I LOVE that we did the money dance because I loved dancing with everyone. I loved dancing with my dad and brother especially.
-I remember my neighbors being soooooo drunk but so happy to be gettin’ down on the dance floor ha! They also frequented the photobooth, which pictures I should probably share with the world. As we left one of them came up to me, kissed me on both cheeks and hugged me and said, ” Oh honey you’re just so pretty!” She also wasn’t wearing a bra.
-I remember driving away screaming because our getaway car was stick shift, which Juan hadn’t had too much experience in.
-Mostly, as cliche as it sounds, I remember just thinking all day THIS.IS.THE.BEST. It was the best and craziest start to our lives together, and I can’t wait for all the years ahead.
