wedding ceremony

Here is a glimpse into our wedding ceremony. I didn’t want to see B before the wedding, even though the photographers told me we should because we would have extra time for photos. I think it made it more special to walk down the aisle and see each other for the first time that day. I believe I even spotted some tears in B’s eyes!

I can’t even explain how excited and nervous we both were. We weren’t nervous about getting married, but let’s just say we had no idea what we were doing up there. Luckily everything turned out and our wedding ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect! And I don’t think our guests noticed our extremely sweaty palms and the fact that we didn’t know where to go after lighting the unity candle…

    Most people wait until last minute to choose their wedding rings and get disappointed by finding out one they don’t fit for. If you have already planed and ordered your wedding rings there would be no worries about the ring fitting.
