Before the Big Day: We Rehearse and Then Eat

Mr. L and I are currently getting settled in Hawaii, and since we may or may not have access to internet, here are some pre-written scheduled posts to keep you guys entertained!


And we're back in chronological order by the way =)

~~~

I remember being relatively calm on Friday the 14th of May -- the day before our wedding. It was a beautiful, warm spring day, and I distinctly recall my mother and I fervently praying the weather the next day would be the same. We did have a backup plan for our outdoor wedding just in case of rain, but we certainly didn't intend on using it if we didn't have to!

We set our rehearsal time for that afternoon, around 4pm.  Surprisingly, everyone made it on time, and things went rather smoothly.  I remember more being lost in the moment than any directions I was supposed to follow, but I had one of those feelings that everything would be just fine.

We spent probably close to an hour at our venue, just figuring out all of the little details while we had the opportunity.  Then we finished up figuring out who needed to be where and when and headed to a local seafood restaurant to enjoy our rehearsal dinner.




We had a great evening just letting loose with our family and friends.  It was so nice just being able to sit and talk with everyone, especially those folks we don't get to see a lot, like Mr. L's best friend since kindergarten and some of his old Navy buddies.

(Mr. L's aforementioned best friend, along with his then-fiancee, now-wife!) 

 (Goofballs!)


(Apparently I like bows on my head!) 




I don't think we'd laughed as much as we did that night in a long time.  It was such a great night, and a wonderful way to spend our last evening before we'd call ourselves husband and wife.
