Wedding Day: The Ceremony

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 ceremony set up

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!


With my song cued and ready to go

My daddy held me tight and we walked down the aisle

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.

There was a kiss
and then a very jubilant “we did it!”

The song that we both love played

No Ones Gonna Love You (Album) – Band Of Horses

while our families clapped.

The joy was felt by all.

    What an amazing spot!! And I love the ‘we did it’ cheer. So funny, we did that too and it wasn’t even planned. It’s just such a hooray moment you can’t help it, right? Too cute.

    you have the perfect wedding. my girlfriend did the same thing in bali. she only had immediate family attend and held a cocktail party after for friends and family. my sister had a 600 guest wedding and i vowed not to repeat the same mistake. btw, janie and jack is my favorite store until my niece grew out of it.
