Trey and I got married on a sunny Saturday afternoon in the middle of September. We took the vow of marriage and professed our life commitment to each other and to God in front of ~500 family members and friends. We said ‘I do‘ in the church we both grew up in and attended while we were dating, making this whole thing just come full circle. The love we felt for each other and from our friends and family that day well surpassed all my expectations.
I can’t fully describe to you how I felt the day of our wedding. I was a nervous wreck the evening before, but I woke calm and cool. There was not an ounce of anxiety, which is very unlike my nervous nancy self. I was excited and so confident in this decision that I just wanted to get there and be married already.
While planning our wedding, I was told by numerous people numerous times that ‘something will go wrong‘ but you just have to roll with it. So I always expected something to go wrong. I expected things to be missing or some one would forget to do something important. But nothing like that happened. In the middle of the reception, my maid of honor turned to me and told me how surprisingly smooth everything was going – no major hiccups. I credit all of that to the a small group of friends and family who worked tirelessly to make sure everything was in place before the wedding and even long after. Trey and I think about these friends often and how lucky we were to have them help us and work so hard to make our day perfect.
It’s been almost two months since we got married, but Trey and I keep wishing we could relive this day. We both can say it was the best of our lives and we feel so blessed! (Trey jokingly wants to get married again just so we could experience that day one more time.)
