There We Were...

Hubby and I received our wedding video yesterday. I cannot tell you how excited I was for this to finally come. I was so anxious and excited and a little nervous actually to see what the videographers came up with. Hubby and I sat on our bed with the lights off and watched the video, like we were in the movie theatre.

There we were on our bed holding hands.
There we were watching, reliving the most special day of our lives.
There we were glued to the tv...watching so closely.
There we were on July 17th laughing, dancing, making memories.

Our wedding day was everything I could have asked for. It was beautiful. It brings back so many wonderful memories. I so wish we could relive that day over and over. I would love to wear my gorgeous dress again. It fit like a glove. I would love hubby to wear his suit again that he looked oh so handsome and sexy in. I would love for my bridesmaids to spend those days leading up to the wedding with me again. That entire week was filled with love and joy and happiness. We are so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives.

But watching the video also brought back tears. Tears of sadness. Not sad about the actual wedding, oh of course not :) Sadness that it is all over. {Yes I did cry the morning after our wedding. I was sad that the two years of planning was over. I was sad that the time I got to spend with my sisters and best friends was over. I was sad that hubby and I wouldn't have such a special and amazing day again. I was sad that momma and I weren't going to be able to browse and shop for the wedding anymore ( I am totally crying as I type this).} I didn't cry last night when I watched the video, I think because of the super excitement I had that it came in the mail. I watched the video today with momma and Aarika...this is when the tears totally came pouring out. As soon as the video started, the tears started. I was sad watching it today because I miss my home. The place we got married was in my hometown. So it brought back so much familiarity. It brought back memories of the wedding week.

Having my best friend and her kiddos fly in from Montana for the week.
Having my bachelorette party at my apartment with all my favorite girls.
Hanging out at the pool all day with hubby and my sisters and my best friends and their kiddos.
Getting a manicure and pedicure with my sisters and two best friends.
Getting ready for our rehearsal and then partying it up at momma's house for dinner and drinks.
Driving up First St. with Kylie to go to Starbucks and my apartment for last minute items.
Getting ready at momma's house with all my sisters and best friends.
Driving up Erringer Rd. to get to the venue.
Getting dressed at the venue with all the women that mean the most to me.
Walking down the aisle to meet the man of my dreams waiting their for me.
To tell him he is mine. Mine forever.

Watching this video made me miss home more than I thought it would. I miss all my family and friends. I miss the familiarity of what I always knew. I miss being able to hang out with my girlfriends for coffee or frozen yogurt. I miss knowing my family and loved ones are right down the way and I have the opportunity to go see them whenever I want. I miss my home and all the memories I have created there and the memories hubby and I have created there.

I honestly didn't think this video was going to make me so sad. I didn't think it would bring all these feelings out. I knew I would want to relive that day, of course what girl wouldn't. But I didn't think it would be sadness out...unfortunately it did. And as I am typing this I am wiping away all the tears it has brought up.
Our wedding day was more than I ever imagined it would be. I loved each and every detail. I loved everything about it. It was the most amazing day I could have ever asked for. Thank you to all our family and friends who helped it make it so amazing.

I too was a bit sad watching the video. It was a day I will also never forget.. The day and the week up to that day were the most special ever. To watch you and all of your friends, it was an awesome and amazing site. I want to thank you for allowing me to be such a huge part of yours and Tonys wedding. I had the best time ever and that day I also felt like a princess as I had never been made up before like that. It was a great day and you were a radiant and beautiful bride. Do not be sad will soon return to your familiarity and once again be home. I love you with all my heart.

I agree, we need to see a clip from the video!

If I were to change anything about our wedding, it would be that we would have hired a videographer. Just something so neat about being able to look back on the wedding day and remember some of the stuff that happened that you have forgotten.

Ps- you looked so pretty on your wedding day :)
