When I left off last time, we were hiding out in the library of the church, waiting for the ceremony to start. One second I was hot gluing a flower back onto my shoe and waiting impatiently for it to be time for the ceremony, and the next it was time to go!
Unfortunately, not everyone realized the ceremony had started… Several guests headed down the aisle in between my two bridesmaids. Oops.
The ceremony was short and sweet, just like we wanted. It was great that we were able to have the pastor we wanted conduct the ceremony. He had a grandchild due a few days after the wedding in another state, so we were worried that he would be called away right before the wedding. Thankfully everything worked out just fine.
We did not do a receiving line as people left the ceremony. We wanted people to quickly move to the reception place, so we could start our photos as soon as possible after the ceremony.
The sooner we started photos, the sooner we could get to the reception with all the food! Things went as planned, and we were soon headed to the reception.
