Our wedding ceremony was the heart and soul of our wedding day.

Leading up to it I literally got knots in my stomach just thinking about walking down the aisle and speaking in front of everyone. But when the moment arrived the nervousness didn’t. I was so relieved to not spend such an important moment sick to my stomach.

During the walk down the aisle, most of my focus was on not tripping over the front of my dress, which was somehow still too long in the front. I remember laughing with my dad and feeling so excited and slightly weirded out that so many people were looking at me.

Matthew was feeling excited and pumped and focused on smiling so that his focus on walking at the right pace didn’t take over his face. All I remember is that by the time I could see him, he was definitely smiling.

We both wrote our vows and it was incredibly sweet, but then Matthew took it one step further and SUNG his which was a total surprise [as you can tell by the last picture].

I was so blessed to have my friend sing during two key parts of our ceremony, the ring blessing, and the feet washing.

Everyone gave me “you’re crazy” looks when I described what I wanted to do for the ring blessing (so I didn’t describe it to many), but it was one of the most special parts of the day and we were thrilled to include our guests in our ceremony in that way.

Nothing too crazy or ridiculous happened during our ceremony and it went as rehearsed, thanks to the small army who helped ensure it did. Weddings are a ton of work and we are so grateful for the amazing people who gave of themselves on our wedding day.
