On June 5th, I began my forever with my soul mate.
Finally I woke up in my parents’ house full of anxiety and excitement. The day I waited forever for was finally happening!
But before I knew it…it was time for hair and makeup. Time for fake eyelashes, beautiful braids, freshly sprayed make up, and enough hairspray for all of the Jersey Shore.
Before I knew it…it was time for the arrival of my bridesmaids. Time for bright pink dresses hung everywhere, excited hustle and bustle, delicious Mimosas, and gorgeous girlfriends and family.
Before I knew it…it was time to put on my wedding dress. Time for the magical moment of feeling like a princess, lively ‘Ohs’ and ‘Ahs’, fluffing and flattening and zipping and buttoning.
Before I knew it…it was time for the ceremony. Time for angelic singing, happy tears from loved ones, fearless ‘I dos,’ and adamant promises of forever.
Before I knew it…it was time for pictures. Time for perfect poses, brilliant, but eventually forced smiles, flashing lights, and picturesque backgrounds.
Before I knew it…it was time for the reception. Time for a stunning room filled with dear friends and family, fabulously flavored food, thank yous and laughter and smiles.
Before I knew it…it was time for dancing. Time for an amazingly awesome live band, non-stop dancers with moves you’ve never seen, selfies with friends, and moments that have left permanent imprints on my heart.
Before I knew it…it was over.
