After family pictures, we started getting ready for the ceremony. I went to the room that they had set aside for us so I could take a breather. I was a bit exhausted from the “day after” shoot and from standing in the hot and humid weather in my huge dress. During this time, there was so much going on that I had no clue about. J and I had chosen songs for the walk down the aisle but I guess there was some technical issues with that so J and his family were running around trying to figure it out and make it work.
The beauty of such a small wedding was the simplicity of the set up and how you could really concentrate on the beauty of the whole property and the ceremony without being distracted by anything else.
While the staff was setting up and the music was being fixed. My dad came in to join me and then I relaxed for the first time that day and told my dad that I was ready to get married!
And there he was. There we were. In the moment, the moment we had talked about, the moment we had both thought of and dreamed of since the day we met. But this moment was even better, it was a spectacular, sunny, sparkly, blue water, dream come true kind of moment. It was a moment I will remember for the rest of my life.
while our families clapped.
The joy was felt by all.
