Wedding Recap: Waiting to Walk Down the Aisle

Note:  All of the pictures with watermarks are taken by our photographer, Nathan Peel.


After all of our pictures with our bridal party, Matt and I had some portraits of ourselves taken.  Insert a plethora of narcissism:

Matt was nervously fiddling with his button, and the photographer asked him to do it again for the picture.

After all of this, we still had about an hour to kill.  My photographer asked if there was any picture that I wanted to get.  I told him about an idea of taking a picture with Matt but where we couldn’t see each other.  We cautiously made our way over to the spot (had to dodge all of the guests and Matt of course).

We were scolded for saying hello while we took the pictures, but we definitely couldn’t see each other.  I love the natural light from the skylight above the balcony.  It’s kind of “Romeo and Juliet” esque.  Matthew, Matthew, wherefore art thou, Matthew?

Then we went back to our respective rooms to wait it out.  In the parlor we were sitting around chatting.  I started singing “Mean” by Taylor Swift.  Apparently that’s not the song you’re supposed to be singing 30 minutes before you get married.  Anyway, we were having a blast (as evidenced by my face).


Our guests were having fun waiting on the festivities to start:


That’s my little bro, Tom.  He’s “special”.


Our ring bearers were having fun meeting new friends.

And our families were just working it!

Our guest book attendants (such a glamorous job.  Thanks, Amers, Gracie, and Elizabeth) were taking their jobs very seriously.

Finally, I was told to make our way to the construction zone staging area.  You can’t see it in the picture, but my church was renovating the space that used to be offices.

Obviously our photographer is very talented to make the space look glamorous.

While we were waiting, we got word that the hotel was being slow with getting everyone’s cars out of valet, so we decided to delay the start by 10 minutes.

However those 10 minutes went fast.  Next thing we knew, it was time to walk down the aisle.
