As always throughout the wedding, our flower girl rocked it, and our bridal party were hysterical on their way in (just another reason to make sure your girls and guys meet before the wedding - no awkward wedding moments here!). But before all of that, my parents then Mike's dad and grandmother entered first, and they were cuter than ever.
For our own entrance, I chose two songs and made Mike make the final decision. (We are the most indecisive couple ever!) The first was This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) by Natalie Cole, but he said that reminded him of the eHarmony commercials (and me of The Parent Trap), so we went with the other choice: Carl Carlton's Everlasting Love. Truth be told, we did get both of these choices from one of those never-ending entrance song lists. I can still remember the moment the door flung open to "open up your eyes, then you realize, here I stand with my everlasting love..."
We went right into our first dance, which luckily we also had some help with. I struggled for weeks and weeks with our first dance song, and made the stress well-known at my office. One day, my co-worker came in, so excited that she had heard the best song ever for us on the radio, and boy was she right! These Are The Times To Remember by Billy Joel was the perfect love song for us: remembering to cherish every moment we spend together while also looking forward to the future, "so stay with me, baby, I've got plans for you!" After a couple of minutes, our bridal party joined in dancing with us, and it was so special (and took all of the eyes off of us a little).
After a big group hug, we all found our seats, and it was time for speeches! I'll be back in a couple of weeks with those! Don't worry, I won't leave you hanging for Wedding Wednesday next week while we're on our honeymooon. I have something special planned that I really think you'll enjoy!
