Wrapped Around Your Finger: All the Small Things

When all is said and done, the result of months and months of planning are a handful of snapshots. But although most of my DIY efforts only survive in the form of  few remnants rescued for a scrapbook, I look fondly on the nights and weekends I spent creating them, the shopping trips to buy supplies, the excitement and tears (yes, tears), the Internet research, the tries and re-tries, the bridesmaid crafting parties, and more.

Here, I present to you, all our small things: The details.

We made final preparations, visited with family members, rehearsed, and ate a miniature Mr. Ladyfingers

The girls and I got gussied up and headed out to the venue

I got all verklempt, the people took their places, and I waited quietly, alone

We kinda got a little married

We stood for portraits

We twirled together as man and wife to the most perfect song there is

We ate, toasted, cut cake, and prepared to party

We had some musically heartfelt moments with our parents

We partied like it was 1999

Somebody caught my garter with their teeth

We exited to bells as our wedding day came to an end
