I’m here to let you in on a little known fact about getting married. Your wedding day really will go by in the blink of an eye. I know I haven’t finished the wedding recaps, but I’ve had a good reason, and I don’t think I’m alone in this…at least, I hope I’m not alone.
On my wedding day, I took everyone’s advice and I soaked it all in as much as possible. I stopped what I was doing ever-so-often and drank in the moment. I made eye contact with my groom throughout the day and took deep breaths to keep me calm, cool, and collected. I was determined to collect every single second from that day and lock away in my memory bank to remember forever.
But as I was working on my recaps, a not-so-funny-thing happened. I couldn’t remember our ceremony. Yes, I had the photos and I know we got married, but I couldn’t remember our vows or anything that was said during the ceremony. My mind failed me at the one time I needed it most. The fact that I couldn’t remember my own wedding made me feel horrible. I couldn’t finish writing about my wedding, because I didn’t remember it.
My cousin was our videographer, but as it happens with most family favors, our video got pushed aside for other important projects. I eagerly and not-so-patiently awaited the video so I could see and remember our day.
Well, a little more than a year later, I’m happy to report that he finished our video and we now have several copies of the DVD! As we watched it, I laughed and cried (happy tears), and memories from the day came flooding back.
I have on piece of advice for any future bride reading this: hire, ask, or even beg someone to videotape your wedding. Your memory may be as sharp as a tack, but trust me when I say your wedding day will go by in an instant. Your video doesn’t need to be anything fancy, but just being able to see your wedding again later is simply amazing.
With that said, I’ll continue posting about our wedding as often as I can, but it may take some time since our life is beyond crazy right now. Thank you for your continued patience 🙂
