The ceremony was one of the most surreal moments of the day, and to be honest, I wish I remembered more of it. It reminded me of when I used to participate in plays in grade school- you spend so much time rehearsing, anticipating, preparing, and then suddenly you're on stage and people are there watching you. When Canon in D started it really felt like the day was starting. Sure, we had all the photos before and whatnot, but everybody else being there in that church- waiting, knowing I was walking in to hundreds of our family and friends. It was incredibly exciting. :)
We didn't have a traditional receiving line- and weren't going to have one at all, but we got sort of trapped (see my other post about what I'd do differently) so we had some people waiting outside when we exited, which really surprised me when I heard cheering and clapping, haha. This is one of my favorite candids though :)
After the ceremony it was off to The Bulldog in St. Paul for some drinks!
