As I've mentioned the initial plan was to get married outside in the garden. However when it started raining about 30 minutes beforehand there was much rushing around to move everything and get the reception room setup for the ceremony. Prior to the rain starting the photographers did get a picture of the Plan A ceremony site which made me happy so that I could see what that would have looked like. While I think the garden was pretty I think the inside was a much more intimate and romantic setting, so it all worked out for the best.

Right before we entered the room I got very teary-eyed and had to take a moment to pull myself together. But once I saw Kristian I couldn't help but smile and my tears vanished. I was way to excited and happy to cry.

*My 5 1/2 year old niece Kaitlin was our flower girl and did an amazing job of walking down the aisle and standing up front during the whole ceremony. Unfortunately her 2 1/2 year old sister who was our other flower girl didn't end up going down the aisle. She was suffering from a double ear infection and wouldn't stop fussing*

I loved our ceremony. It was sweet and sentimental and perfect. Kristian was very teary-eyed and I couldn't stop giggling. It was such a cool, surreal, amazing experience I just couldn't help but giggle with excitement. I was also trying to keep Kristian from completely losing it ;-) As much as I had stressed about the weather and the potential of the ceremony being inside I couldn't be happier with how everything went.
