Wedding Highlight Reel

I was so excited yesterday to get my highlight reel!  I may have had 5 women from my office gathered around my monitor watching the 5 minute delight.

The day started as we gathered at the salon – 3 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, 2 junior bridesmaids, 2 flower girls, 1 baby, and the bride.  With tears on the brink the entire day, you can see my forced calm as I get ready transformed into unparalleled excitement as I meet my handsome groom at the alter, and a humbling knowledge of our commitment as we are led through our carefully thought-out ceremony.

A few formal pictures later, and Keith whisks me into our magical reception.  It was wonderful to dance with him, my dad, and all the little girls.  The food was unbelievably delicious.  Every single detail came together, and all the work I’d put in to coordinate every color, every font, and every sentiment, paid off.

I love this man and these girls.  As Keith sits beside me and works on his coding and I on this page before work, I praise God for blessing and challenging us with the covenant of marriage.

As I swoon over the video, a bit of Song of Solomon humor…

Strengthen me with raisins,
refresh me with apples,
for I am faint with love.
-Song of Solomon 2:5

    Loved this. It made me cry when you danced with your girls! My daughter is getting married in April and we looked at Hotel Dupont – she decided on the Carriage House.

      Thank you! We wanted the wedding to be primary about our commitment to each other, but incorporated the girls into much of what we did since we’re an “instant family”. One of my favorites was that after we fed each other the cake, we also fed the girls a piece too!

      The DuPont was amazing; I cannot recommend it more. It was probably the best decision I made in planning the big day! The service was what did it for me, especially the attention to detail whilst planning. I’ve talked to a few other brides who’ve had the same kind of experience at other venues; I wish you all the best!
