And so it was time to get married! I was anxious to finally get to see all of the people who traveled from near and far to share this day with us. I was also excited to take part in our wedding ceremony, a full Catholic mass, the whole hour of it! Sure, it was fun picking out my attire and planning our reception decor, but the event I was most looking forward to was our ceremony. The serious part of it all, where I would finally be able to state my vows before God and before our closest family and friends.
I took my mom's hand and felt at ease and ready to go! She, on the other hand, was not so relaxed. She often said over the course of my engagement that she had inherited all of my nerves. She was right. If I got stressed or second-guessed my decisions for even one minute, I would talk to her about it and then I immediately felt better and let it go. Despite her worries about executing such a big event, and tripping down the aisle, it all went smoothly as I knew it would. My mother provided me with endless love and support throughout the whole wedding planning process and it was such an honor to have her walk me down the aisle. I wouldn't have wanted any other person by my side during that most important moment of my life.

There, at the alter, my handsome groom was waiting for me. I was so ready to be his wife!
