Joie De Vivre: Wedding Edition

My longtime love of 11 years and I finally tied the knot this past June.  It was really one of the best days of my life.  To any of you soon to be brides... trust me the stress of the planning is all forgotten once you are up there exchanging vows.  Here are some great and funny things that I wanted to share.

{receiving a blessing from my Abuelita before the ceremony}

That whole day I was running around like crazy.  The moment she wanted to bless me I felt relaxed. I really needed it before the ceremony. 

{MY DAD DANCED!!}

I get my jokster side from him but definitely not my dance moves.  I've never seen him dance like this before and he was just all for it. He was in the middle of a dance circle!  Loved that.


{My accessories}
Not pictured is the beautiful antique diamond cross I wore. The brides in Shane's family have worn it on their wedding day so I was honored to have the chance to be part of that tradition.  I also wore my mom's ring.  Her parents gave it to her on her 15th birthday.  I've always wanted to wear it. :)  Then there is that BLACK HAIR BAND. :(  I did something I shouldn't have. I didn't look in the mirror before I left the hotel.  I had no idea I had it on until I handed my bouquet off to my maid of honor. Oh the horror. It makes for a funny memory now. :)

{I'm a really awkward person}

The picture says it all. I didn't realize how much I found the cake cutting to be uncomfortable.  It's one of those things that I didn't think much of until it was happening. 

{Don't Cry}

We dared my adorable little nephew to whisper to Shane "Don't Cry"... and he did it.  It was great.  I didn't actually witness it but when I saw the pictures I melted.
