Press play and listen along as you read!

As our guests took their seats, Vitamin String Quartet’s version of The Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979”? floated on the air.

Behind them all, at the top of the aisle, we gathered.

*


I look upset here but I swear I wasn’t! / *

The wind hadn’t let up one bit, and once again, my veil had a mind of its own. Boy am I glad I didn’t wear a cathedral veil (something I heavily considered)—imagine trying to control THAT in the wind!

*

*

It was threatening to blow right off my head, but Wizard Aunt caught it just in time.

*

It was so windy, in fact, that in the same gust that took my veil up, something else was blowing away”?

The tablecloth blew right off our register-signing table! Good thing the pavilion banister was there, otherwise who knows how far it would have blown. A few of our guests ran up to fix it (thanks, guys!), but sadly, there was one casualty in this accident:

*

When the tablecloth blew away, it took our pen and paperweight with it. The pen landed on the floor of the pavilion, but the paperweight was nowhere to be found. We even went back out and looked more thoroughly after the ceremony, and Mr. Wiz’s dad looked again the next day, but no luck. I’m kind of bummed because I made that paperweight myself at a glassblowing class years ago, but I like to think that someone at the winery will find it and they’ll use it there. ?

The tablecloth, and my veil, were back in place just as “1979”? faded out, the first processional song, VSQ’s rendition of “Just Like Heaven,”? started, and everyone stepped into place. The ceremony was starting.

(Press play again!)

MOH Lefty gave me a knowing smile, the kind of smile that conveyed more in her expression than any words could have possibly ever done. No amount of words that could have described that moment.

*

*

Mr. Wiz and Wizard Aunt made their ways down to the pavilion, entering from the side steps—Mr. Wiz from the left and Wizard Aunt from the right.

*


Hey, handsome.

*

Once they took their places,老师们普遍缺乏急救护理常识, Best Man D started the processional by escorting Grandma S to her seat before taking his place next to his brother in the pavilion.

*


Think they’re related? I think they look like twins in this picture.


D likes to close his eyes for pictures a lot. / *

Next my dad and grandma made their way down to their seats.

*

*

And then Mr. Wiz’s parents.

*


I think it’s so funny that both the dads carried their cameras down the aisle!

And last, it was MOH Lefty’s turn, and she made her way down, leaving me all alone.

*

*

While she walked, I waited.

*

I had been dreading this moment of alone-ness for months prior to the wedding. So much, in fact, that I specifically asked one of our photographers to stay behind with me in case I needed a hug, or a tissue (or 20), or barfed, or fainted, or ran away screaming. Picturing this moment gave me the willies, and I spent the time leading up to the wedding in complete denial that it would happen.

*

But on that day, in that moment, I was completely content. Relaxed. I just stood and soaked up the moment, my heart swelling, fit to burst. It was so fun to watch everything I’d planned play out before my eyes—everything was more perfect than I could have asked for.

As Lefty entered the pavilion, the music faded out, and there was a moment of complete silence. Anticipation buzzed through the air. I took a deep breath, and as the music—my music, the perfect song I had specially selected for this walk—started up again, I stepped off.

(Press play one last time!)

*

A million thoughts were flying through my head. I thought of my mom, and how much I wished she could be there. I thought of all of you, hive, and of your well wishes from that morning and how badly I wished I could show you how beautiful the weather turned out and how I couldn’t wait to tell you about everything. I thought about how lucky I was to be marrying this great guy, marrying into this great family, surrounded by my nearest and dearest.

*

I had so many thoughts spinning around that I got a bit overwhelmed, and the tears threatened to spill over.

*


I love this photo that my cousin P took, because you can see that I had my pinkie through my mom’s wedding ring on my bouquet.

But I realized that I wasn’t being present. I was thinking so much about other things that I was just going through the motions of walking. So I told myself, “Stop. Stop thinking so much. This is the only time in your life you will ever get to do this, so just stop thinking and remember this moment.”?

*

That was all it took to put a smile on my face. Well, that and seeing my groom grinning at me from the end of the aisle once I rounded the corner.

*

*

The rest of the walk was easy after that. I kept my eyes on my groom, made conscious memories of every single step of that walk, and before I knew it, I was at the end. Mr. Wiz stepped down to meet me, and we walked the last few steps together back into the pavilion.

*

*

I handed off my bouquet to MOH Lefty, turned to face Mr. Wiz, and took his hands. And so it began.

First, I kick things off with our wedding video. I go stir-crazy, and almost choke to death, the week before our wedding. We had a pretty bad venue setup/rehearsal day. I’m the bride with the weak stomach. The crew arrives, and the ladies get pretty. Hairstylist B accidentally shares a little secret! Bride and groom exchange cards and a surprise gift. Tying bow ties is a comedy of errors. Finally, I become a bride! All the little details. A special lady gets a special gift. Here comes the sun, and the bride (AKA our first look). We smiled our way through family portrait time.
