First off, let me just say that no mother of the bride should have to throw a wedding without my sister to attend to everything on the day of the wedding. And my brother-in-law to help her. You just don’t know the things that you need to think of and if my sister hadn’t been there, I would never have had time to hang out with my daughters on the day of the wedding. Now I know why people need wedding planners, not for the planning but for the detail wrangling the day of. And my older daughter now says she just wants to elope.
Here is the picture of the wedding party my brother-in-law snapped with his phone. I didn’t bother to crop it. He’s a professional photographer and videographer (not for this wedding though) and I’ll bet there are some more coming. It drove him nuts that the bride and groom didn’t want any pictures taken (other than the pros) during the ceremony. It drove another of my friends crazy also – and she didn’t obey the rules as well as my BIL.
And my own personal fav so far:
Okay, so much for that. I can’t wait to see more pictures!
Now for the sad story of the wedding song. The sound man (in spite of copious detailed instruction from my husband) started the song and then turned the volume up so the song was sort of missing the first two lines. (This is apparently how he always does it since the bride & groom had to wait for the recessional music to come up also.) So you may be getting a better experience than the congregation did.
