The moment we’d been counting down for! Lots of laughter, fun, and my favorite vows of all time. 🙂 I got pretty lazy this time around, so no words, just pictures.

The morning quickly became the past as I left the limo, did our first look and checked into the magic that is the Adventureland Suite. I considered the worst behind me, there was no reason not to be on a happy high.

This was the limo ride of breaking points. I was just having an unbelievably challenging time having fun by this time and starting to feel like I was going to be sick. Maybe it was nerves, maybe disappointment from getting ready. I’ll never know. I just know that this ride was saved by quite the dose of Disney magic. 🙂

When it came time for getting ready, I really felt like the movies had severely lied about what it’s supposed to be like. Even with all the gorgeous music videos I’ve watched of real brides’ wedding days. Sweet snippets of brides and grooms interacting with their family so endearingly, bridesmaids laughing together while causing the bride to sneak a smile. From my own personal perspective, this couldn’t have felt any farther from the truth. The only person who really talked to me at all was my hair stylist.
My parents were busy with getting things reported to the house owners’ agent and it really felt like my bridesmaids could have cared less if I was there or not. It felt like they only started caring when I stopped. However, if my wedding photos were any sort of proof to how I was feeling, you’d never believe it. I do tend to dramafy things more in my mind, but I’m totally glad my wedding photos did not reflect that.

I’m sorry these last couple recaps have sounded so negative. The wedding experience really wasn’t. I swear! It does get better! Once we got to the resort, it was 100% magical. I think that it was just dealing with the reality of people’s selfishness really hit me hard on a day I was supposed to be in a constant high during. It was a really big disappointment to me when things didn’t go how I’d been led to believe they would.
Since my portion of getting ready is longer, I thought it’d be easier to start off with writing about Erick’s part first.
The guys had to be done a little earlier in order to drop off our special champagne at the resort, but their morning was pretty laid back considering it doesn’t take the gents half as long to get ready as the ladies. (I know, totally not fair, right?) The last of the guys started arriving around 9:30, but spent most of their time hanging out and opening gifts before even bothering to get dressed.
