No, not my wedding. But my first wedding as an officiant (and probably my last). Here's the play by play:
Friday we had the rehearsal. It went very smooth. Obviously being an event planner made this part of the wedding easy for me. I am organized and I like bossing people around. Cool. Done. Piece of cake. The rehearsal dinner was super fun - lots of food, drinks and friends.
Saturday we slept in, then got ready for the wedding. I was not nervous at all, everything was rolling along smoothly. THEN the bride starts walking down the aisle with her parents. All of a sudden, I get that silly, girly, sore throat, I'm gonna cry - thing. And all of a sudden, they are in front of me. I know the words to say, but had notes just in case- THANK goodness!
I look down at my hands and they were shaking worse than I have ever seen any shake. I could not get them to stop shaking! We got through the wedding with only one or two mishaps, which turned out to be pretty funny in the end. I said something about putting the ring on the "bride of the finger." But everyone laughed and it was fine. It was finally over and I was sooooo relieved. We took some amazing pics on the beach - I will post some once I get them.
Then it was party time! The Captain was the best man and he was pretty nervous about his speech, but he did great. Had everyone laughing. Then the dancing started. Man I love weddings, especially after the hard stuff is over.
NOT that I ever want to have one, but going to other people's is really fun.
