Wedding Days start early . . . so much to do and so little time before the big event at 2:30. I will have lots of pictures eventually as the official wedding photos arrive, so for now I’ll share those shot by family, friends, and me during the pre-ceremony hours . . .
6:30 – I was up and at it working on a program for the wedding. Ryan was sound asleep upstairs.
9:00 – Emily and her sister Brittany were at a salon getting their hair done. Ryan was sound asleep upstairs.
10:30 – Zoe and I took a walk up to the school to check on the progress of the artificial turf that is being installed (this is the field where I announce in the fall). Ryan was sound asleep upstairs.
11:30 – The rest of my family was already at the church taking pictures. I was upstairs dragging Ryan out of bed.
11:45 – Emily was already at the church visiting with my cousin Jodee (our photographer) and Jodee’s daughter Ally (the photographer’s assistant). I left the house once I was convinced that Ryan was conscious.
1:30 – Conner’s fiancee Gina (their big day is in six weeks) was putting the finishing touches on Emily’s makeup.
1:45 – Katie, Emily and Emi were ready to go.
2:15 – Ryan was passing the last 15 minutes of his bachelorhood by watching Mythbusters videos on his phone while Conner and Tyler were seating the guests.
And finally 2:30 came. Since we don’t have wedding pictures yet, at this point I had intended to share some of the wedding video that we shot on my camcorder, but the kids called last night and said that I could share as many pictures as I wanted, but they would prefer that the video be private. My apologies, but of course it is their wedding.
So tomorrow we’ll tackle the reception – and at some point down the road we’ll take a pictorial walk down the aisle . . .
