Recaps- Ceremony Part 1

Although it was a gorgeous day, waiting outside in the heat with my dad was not very pleasant. Sweating was not on my itinerary! But there we in the sun. I only stood outside, because if I had stood in the entryway, guests would have been able to see me.
We were using a small boom box for the music. That's what the church uses. I guess because it's a stone structure, the acoustics sound really great and they've never had a need for any type of sound system or P.A. We made a CD that consisted of only 3 songs, and simple directions on when to start and stop playing each song was told to my husband (by me) about 8 or 9 times so that it could be drilled into his head (he's a bit A.D.D.). The directions were also posted on the CD cover and on his son's itinerary with special instructions (he was to be in charge of this). I even asked my husband to please, PLEASE allow his son to read directions on CD and itinerary and not to try and explain them to him himself. You see, my honey is HORRIBLE at directions, and there's a 90% chance of him getting things completely wrong. Well.......things did go badly as far as music and queuing people on when to start processional. My honey (I love him to death) got everything wrong, even with engraving things into his brain. He didn't even allow his son to stop and start the music....he did it HIMSELF! ay,ay,ay! So basically, that is why we stood outside in the heat for so frickin' long. But when we finally got on with it, things went great. (Well, besides the sweat factor!)

In the above picture you will see my honey waiting to take pics of everyone as they walked up.
All the guests are patiently waiting (especially because of the music and queuing issues)........
First my mom and step father........followed by flower girl, flower girl's escort and ring bearer. Really in no particular order.....we're just lucky there was cooperation with them all going up the aisle! My flower girl (granddaughter) was completely against having any part of being the flower girl. She even threw a couple of!
We were very proud of them. Of course, I didn't get to see until late that evening from the video my honey (and his daughter) made. You can see his daughter in the second set of pictures maneuvering the camera.

Part 2 will be "Here Come's the Bride". ME! =)
