On August 18th, I married my best friend. The day was beautiful, the groom so very handsome in his tux (in my opinion) and I felt like a princess. That's what everyone wants to hear. In reality, P and I weren't sure if we were going to be able to have our wedding outside as we planned, that my dress would be at the shop for me to pick up after a few last minute alterations, that the food at the reception would be edible, and that our friend who volunteered to both do the videopraphy for our wedding and DJ the reception would be able to make everything work out.
We did get to have our outdoor wedding and it was beautiful. the day was gorgeous, few decorations were needed, and he did look handsome to me. My dress was finished on time, but barely. I picked it up the day that we left to head to the wedding. P tech directed our wedding and set up all of the sound equipment both at the ceremony site and at the reception hall. The food was fabulous and even now we still get complements on it. The cake was beautiful and tasty. The video still hasn't arrived and never will because the footage was horrible. The same thing with the DJing at the reception. If I had that to do over again, I'd micro manage and set out a play list for him to play.
However, the end result was that we got married and have been happily married for almost 6 years. Despite the things that I can look back on and cringe over and the things I look back on and celebrate, I wouldn't have wanted the day to go too much differently. It was one of the best days of my life.
