I'm back and married!!! (typing from my phone)

The wedding was amazing! Definitely not "perfect" but gorgeous and I'm happy with the end results. I will post pictures soon.

FI's vows were great! We both got some good laughs from our guests. Even our officiant commended our vows and choice of ceremony.

The weather was perfect.

Dinner was great. Caterer was awesome and made up and then some for upsetting me a few times during planning.

Having a few dates with our friends and family versus one night was the best decision we made.

Small things that went wrong:
- I left town to the venue without my checkbook or bank card!
- My reception dress ripped right when I put it on... and i forgot my strapless bra.
- Our venue is a vacation rental with an extremely unreliable but sweet host. She forgot to email or come back by with the email passwords and gate codes, making people very frustrated (one person had to work remotely). All the TV remotes were missing batteries. Most of the dishes were dirty. The outdoor speaker was still broken even though II asked and she said it was fixed. The lawn was in horrible condition. Basically I paid 10k for a venue and vacation rental that was in disrepair.
- The rental company delivered two colors of chairs because they over booked themselves. They fixed that quickly because i was not happy.
- The lighting company was one white lantern short so i had one lonely and misplaced blue lantern.
- The back of my dress snapped during the ceremony. Luckily it didn't come unzipped
- The wind messed up our backdrop during the ceremony.
- Our entrance song started playing while we were standing in the house with the DJ going over the entrance plan
- Two cake stands went missing so I had to pay $245 to the vintage rental place
- Apparently I'm allergic to the wood used in the firepit so i was stuffy and had a runny noise the entire time.
- and so on....
