Wedding Wednesday - V. XI

welcome back, bitches, to another episode of Wedding Wednesday here at TBNT. if you'd like to see past installments of WW, click here! sooner or later, I'm going to run out of wedding pictures to post here! hopefully it's later, and not sooner.

I still plan on posting pictures today, but I thought it would be interesting to give you some of the details of the wedding. okay, not so much the "details," but the little mishaps and funnies that occurred throughout the day. there are some things that were said and done on our wedding day that I'll never forget... whether they just made me smile, made me feel good, or made me laugh til my stomach hurt.

as always, all photos are credited to the lovely and talented Jen, from JLowe Photos. If you'd like to see more of her work, feel free to visit her blog here.

1. I've explained before that I constructed our vows from the huge PDF file from our officiant. the one thing that not a lot of people know though, is that as we were standing up there in front of all our family & friends, ready to proclaim our forever love to one another and blah blah blah blah, Mr. FoFandee whispered to me... "you can still run, ya know... this is pretty much your last chance." I thought it was hysterical, and it took everything I had in me to keep from busting out laughing.

2. ALSO during our ceremony, I put his ring on before the officiant instructed me to do so. that's what all this laughter's about.

3. I had to drink a couple of our signature drinks in order to calm me down before walking down the aisle. I wasn't nervous, but I was having pretty bad anxiety about the whole sitch. obviously, the drinks worked. plus, it was hot as all hell and I was sweating my ass off, which only lead to further bridezillaism. note: this picture was not taken by my photographer. and I actually wasn't a bridezilla at ALL... but this pictures doesn't exactly represent that. ;)

4. my dad is hilarious.

5. while we were walking to take pictures, the ankle strap on my shoes broke. my day-of-coordinator had them sewn back together in a matter of 30 minutes. all of my pictures with my bridal party were taken barefoot. :) FYI, my day-of-coordinator was the BEST vendor I spent money on.

6. during our first dance, I was terrified that I was going to step on my dress and fall on my face. I kept telling the Mister to hold me up just in case. at one point, I DID step on my dress, and I was almost a goner, but I caught myself. whew! this is the "oh shit, I just almost face planted" face.

7. Mr. FoFandee's best man, Bill, rapped "Ice Ice Baby" at the beginning of our reception. it was one of the best things I've ever seen in my life. aaand I danced around him... like a stripper. and it was a fucking blast. I think everyone will always remember that about our wedding night.

8. my friend Kaycie requested a song from the DJ, and had it dedicated to me. it was "Fat Bottomed Girls" by Queen. clearly, I have awesome friends, and that made my night.

obviously, there are many more things that happened that I'll always remember about our wedding day, but those are the ones that stick out most to me, and make me smile. I hope everyone is having a pleasant week, and that you're enjoying gorgeous weather like we are here in Maryland!
