After sharing with you for almost the past year, I wanted share my experiences the day of my Door County wedding, which I will do today. I’d also like to share a review of my vendors and recommendations to future DC brides to be, which I will do in posts to come.
Waking up the morning of the wedding felt so surreal. After all that work and planning, it was our wedding day and I would be marrying my best friend that day. I expected to be extremely nervous from the moment I woke up, but I was surprisingly calm. I think the view I woke up to from our room at the Landmark had something to do with how calm I was (you can see it below).
One of the things that kept me pretty relaxed the morning of the wedding is that we did not have to start getting ready for the wedding until noon, since our wedding ceremony was not until 4:30. At noon, we met up with Jayson’s cousins, Jessica and Vanessa, who happen to be awesome hair styles at Salon Three Twenty-Five, and the girls began getting dolled up. Shortly after we started getting ready our photographer, Jason Mann, arrived to take pictures of us getting ready and the before the ceremony pictures.
It was not until just before the ceremony that I started to get nervous (right after the picture above). Now looking back I had no reason to be nervous, because the ceremony was truly one of the most magically times in my life. Our ceremony was short and sweet, which was good, because it was pretty chilly out.
After the ceremony, our guests headed inside for our popcorn bar from Double Delights and cocktails while we were off for pictures. — I’m still getting compliments on the popcorn! — It felt like only a moment went by, and we were back for our reception. At our reception our DJ actually saved our butts with cake knife. Yes, we forgot to get a cake knife!! Who would have thought a DJ would have a cake knife with him, but he said he carries all kind of different show stopping items for the weddings he works.
After we nailed the dance, I finally was able to relax, dance, and enjoy our guests, which was one of my favorite parts of the wedding.
At the end of the night, I was sure glad I did not blink that day, or I might have missed it all. It is so true what they say, that the day just flies by, but I will take solace that the memories will last a life time!
