Last we left off, I was an emotional mess in the hours leading up to our rehearsal. Soon enough, though, it was time to gather with our family and friends at church and go through the events of the next day.
Our church is gorgeous, isn’t it? Sigh, we love being a part of this parish so much.
Our rehearsal was actually really easy. Our awesome priest, Father Mike, totally handled the whole thing for us!
First, we all gathered at the front of the church. We sat down, while Father Mike addressed us out front, going through the whole Mass for everyone. Then we walked through everything, and that was pretty much it! Super easy.
My dad and I walked down the aisle…
We practiced our vows…
Our Flower Girl & Ring Bearer. Look, it’s the candy ring bearer pillow & lollipop pomander I made! Cass is already eating a lollipop, haha!
Here are the girls hanging out at the rehearsal while we were up at the altar. You can see the awesome practice bouquets I made! My sister and Hayley’s faces in this photo are classic: “Uh, WTF?!”
Hayley & Guido. Oh, Guido…our most inappropriate friend by far. I’m not sure what’s going on here, but you can rest-assured he is saying something either a) totally gross, or b) totally sexual. God bless her for grinning and bearing it!
And with that, our rehearsal was over…but our night was just beginning! Up next, we feast!
First I got a mani-pedi with my sister, then I cried.
