Married!

We finally tied the knot on Sunday, and it really was my dream wedding. Everything went according to schedule, the weather was great (although super hot), and the food was delicious. I was only running on 5.5 hours of sleep, but I managed to survive the whole day and even dance the majority of the night.

I was so afraid I'd get sick for my wedding because I suffer from sinus problems and migraines, but I actually felt well most of the day.

The ceremony was my favourite part of the day. I was so nervous in the morning, but I was able to relax once I was with my husband (I can't believe I get to say that now!). I'm so glad we opted to write our own vows. I was against it at first because I find a lot of people's vows TMI. However, it was so beautiful and emotional to say mine and hear his. All of our guests were crying along with us, and there were even some funny moments that broke the tension.

I couldn't have asked for a better day. All this to say that a wedding without any major issues is possible! I hope everyone who got married this past weekend had great days, and good luck to next weekend's brides and grooms.

Here are some guest pictures. Can't wait to see the professional photos!

    Thanks, Kelsie! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. My tips would be to try to keep the stress to a minimum the few days before the wedding and drink plenty of water. It's not garunteed those things will keep a migraine away, but they helped me a little. The adrenaline also helps!

    Thank you, Becky! Yes, definitely recommend an energy booster if they work for you and don't make you crash. Or least plenty of snacks and water!
