my list of projects + wedding ceremony recap

I am in total project mode, and I don't see that stopping any time soon! I've been saving Pinterest project for this house since before the house even existed. Of course getting wedding presents inspires you to revamp and start fresh. And of course moving into a new home, we've discovered more to-do's that I'd never even thought about. In the next week or two I plan to tackle

craft a front door wreath
make a ticket stub shadow box
curtains, curtains, and more curtains. specifically for my office.
selecting the wedding photos we want printed
begin to plan gallery wall for downstairs

Wish me luck. I'll hopefully have at least a couple of these done by next weekend?

Now, more importantly, our wedding ceremony! If you missed it, I already posted about the rehearsal dinner and getting ready.

Our ceremony was absolutely, 100% perfect. The church was beautiful and everything a church should be on a wedding day- in my opinion at least. The stained glass windows and the marble make you feel like you're somewhere sacred and special. All of the beautiful flowers didn't hurt either. I could go on and on about how gorgeous St. Gertrude is, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!

The ceremony is one of the main reasons we got a videographer. Video trailer coming to the blog soon by the way! But as the bride, you really don't get to see much of this part. While everyone else was starting the most important ceremony of my life, I was standing outside the church, trying to pray and collect myself. Truthfully, I wasn't nervous at all. I didn't think I was going to fall or mess up my vows. And if I had, I wouldn't of cared one little bit. The few minutes I waited outside we're probably the most sureall moments of my entire life. It was the only time the whole day where I was alone to think and really let it sink in what was about to happen. Our church was on a fairly busy street, and I got lots of honks and cheers from the passing cars. It was a really special few minutes that I don't think I'll soon forget.

The rest of the ceremony went on as planned, then we did some family and wedding party pictures. After about seven million pictures and my smile had turned to a permanent cramp on my face, the whole wedding party and their dates took a party bus to the reception. If I could do it over, I'd make this part of the day last a lot longer. The bus was a blast!

Stay turned for reception, honeymoon, and our move!

Linking up with Sami, Molly, and Leeann.

Seems like you are having a hectic schedule ahead. Last month, I arranged two weddings, one of my nephew and other of my cousin. Both were arranged at awesome NYC wedding venues. It was quite a busy month but enjoyed a lot.
