It poured the morning -and all the night- before. I mean thunder, dark sky, lightening poured. My parents, brother-in-law, and so many family friends turned out to help fix it. We couldn't stop the rain, but we could move tables under the garage, try to soak up water, and my dad even bought a pump to pump water off the dance floor. Thankfully, Grandmama had a talk with Jesus, and he stopped the rain for the rest of the day. The work wasn't over, but with the pump and the friends and Jesus it turned out to be a complete success!
My photographer told me it'd be about 90 days before we would have our pictures. I'm just not sure if I can wait that long! That is the only disappointment I have about the whole weekend. Being the bride, I couldn't be the one walking around with a camera (which I normally am), so I don't have any pictures. I have no pictures from the rehearsal dinner - a GREAT time-, no pictures of the wedding -beautiful and sweet-, and no pictures of the reception- an absolute blast!
I swear they cut my reception short. It felt like it was over in about an hour! I hear that's how it goes though for most brides. I am so thankful I made the last minute decision to hire a videographer. That's something else I can't wait to get back, but I don't think he will take as long as the pictures.
We have gotten the best and the sweetest compliments from friends and family members who attended. I love hearing their stories about it all. I love "seeing" it through their eyes. I love hearing all about it. I don't think that will ever get old.
Luckily, I found this free app about a week before the wedding. It's called Capsule, and it's a free app for people to download on their smart phones (which I still have none of). They can take pictures and videos and they automatically upload to this website, so I get to see! That was a great idea. They even sent me this little card design which I took to Office Depot and had printed on business cards for about $10.00. We passed them out to everyone. Not too many people actually did it, but the ones who did did a great job with taking pictures! I am very grateful. It's all I've seen of the wedding! Here are a few of them.
