Cermony: part one

By the time the ceremony began, there was so much going on around me and in my head I could have gone crazy. Making sure everything was perfectly in place. Trying to discreetly make it to my place without being seen before "the walk". Delivering messages to everyone imaginable. Losing car keys. Flower girls asking me how they look and assuring me that I look picture perfect. Dad crying. The list goes on!!!!!! Today's post is a long one...so without further ado.....the processional.....

and little Daniella had a great fall. I only saw it on the video afterwards, but it was so cute! She was walking fast, practically pulling her mom as she was yelling "Stephen! Timmy!" SO CUTE! She loves her uncles =) Then she finally threw her flowers and fell while reaching to get theml =)

This picture deserves to be framed and hung on it's own wall. This is among my top few favorites. Probably one of the most serene pictures of us. *sniff* That was one long processional! I didn't think it would ever arrive. I think I stood back there waiting for a lifetime....it felt longer than the days I spent waiting for this moment to get here!

Thanks again to our fabulous photographer!

Next: more of the ceremony =)
