From the Bride... "Are you ready for the big day?" Another reminder of ALL the things left undone in preparation for our wedding. I must have answered that oh-so- popular inquiry a thousand times! Between that and The Knot's daunting to do list, which greeted me each day with the number of overdue tasks (which, of course, always outnumbered the completed tasks), planning definitely seemed like mission impossible. Yet my answer to the question never changed. "Well, I have a groom who is my best friend, a minister to make our marriage official, and a dress so that I don't have to get married in the buff, so I guess I am ready!" Sure, I may have barely scratched the surface of the infinite To-Do list, but there was a light at the end of the tunnel guiding me through... Marriage. At the end of the day, isn't that the point of the whole shebang? And holding to that simple yet easily forgotten principle made planning a joy and a breeze, because I knew no matter what the outcome of the day may be, at the end of it I would be married to my best friend.
Soak up every minute, because it goes by so quickly! That was possibly the best advice given to me about my "South meets the City" wedding. What took so long to arrive was gone in the blink of an eye. And perfect. Sure it poured all afternoon, the cake was late, and some flowers came in the wrong shade, but the look on my groom's face as I practically ran down the aisle to him (sorry Dad) made up for all of that and so much more. The support of all our loved ones, the gorgeous Atlanta sunset, and all of our memories being captured by some of our sweetest and most talented friends, Scobey Photography, what more could a bride ask for? The song my father and I danced to really summed the day up perfectly. "When you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you..."
