We finally got to the condo, I ran in already half-way undressed, curled a few strands of my hair and wadded it up in a side bubble thing while my mom stitched on the final piece of my 2nd dress. Someone told me they had found my vows, everyone who was already at the condo helped with the flowers and the place cards, and all was well--although I think my mom was, um, shall we say, tense?
Made by my overly talented chef of a SIL, Elizabeth!
We forwent to ring exchange within the temple, so that my best friends and a few of the family members who weren’t in the ceremony could feel more apart of the celebration. So we had a little vows/ring ceremony before the dinner started. I was really nervous about this, but I’m so glad we did it.
It was really sweet.
I’m sure the dinner was delicious, but for once in my life, I couldn’t get myself to eat a thing. I was a little nervous about the, um, nighttime events…
I did however eat the cake, and man was it delicious!
We danced, cut the cake, took pictures, and threw the bouquet (which was caught by my maid of honor, who is dating the bestman), and around 9:30 or 10:00 it was time to go.
So happy that the moon made his appearance :)
Pa Nielson pulled me aside and told me that Ma Nielson had planned just about every detail of the secret honeymoon, except for one, and that part we could figure out on our own…ha! It was hilarious!
And we did figure it out, thank you very much.
And that was all she wrote…
