KPLUSD's Recap!

i knew i couldnt be away from you ladies for that long!! so WOW. what an amazing day drew and i had yesterday! there were only 3 major things that didnt go as planned, but they were all minor compaired to what they could have been!! we got home from the bar around 130am lastnight/this morning and i reallllly wanted to do my recap then, but drew told me i should probably wait, which was smart because i ramble when i drink!!


 


Friday i was ok! the only thing i had to do was get my mani/pedi with my mom and MIL, so the day actually made me kind of crazy bc i was just pacing trying to figure out what i could possibly do to keep myself busy. when drew went to get a haircut, i decided to practice my walk down the aisle. so i youtubed cannon in d, put drews picture at the end of my lvingroom so i could practice my eyecontact with him, took one step, and BAM. i was a sobbing baby. i seriously cried so hard that i had to sit down. so that made me even more nervous for saturdays walk!! my biggest fear was crying. later that night after we put the baby to bed, i went to my moms to sleep with 2 of my BMs while drew stayed here with 3 of his GM.


 


Saturday came! and went. sooo fast! you were all right!! heres how the schedule was supposed to go: 7am - start my hair. 745am- MUA arrives to start all of our makeup. 10am-limo arrives for the church. well, heres how it went- 740am- start my hair. 845-MUA came. hung over. and did MOHs makeup, then mine. but she finished mine at 10, so the limo was there before i was ever remotely close to ready!! luckily our limo was the NICEST guy ever, and very accomodating! i kept appologizing for being late, and he kept telling me that in his 20 years of running a limo service, only 2 brides had ever been on time. so we got to my 11am ceremony, and 1120am! ahh. yep. im THAT jerk bride who makes her guests wait. which i wouldnt have done, if it wasnt for my idiot of a MUA who i will NEVER refer to anyone. so along with running incredibly late, the other glitch we hit was my MOH forgot her earrings. that i bought for all of the girls to wear. not a big deal, and she honestly cared more then i did, but it still sucked since everyone was wearing the same ones except for her. ohh well! once we got to the church, rather then going downstairs to the bridal suite like we would have done, the DOC had us just wait behind the doors and started immediatly! which was a hugeee blessing in discuise because i either had to do it NOW or i not at all, haha i was so nervousss!!! the foyer we were standing in, was supposed to have its doors shut, but it didnt, so i could see everyone in the church, and they could see me. which some of you may have hated, but i loved because drew and i were able to make eye contact before i walked down the aisle, and one smile of his from a distance, BEFORE the pressure of walking was on, was all i needed to know that everything was going to be fine! it was finally my time to walk, and my mom and i held my daughters hands and the 3 of us walked down together, which was greatttt! as soon as we got up there, mya put her arms up to drew so he could hold her which was adorable!! and 15 minutes later, we were officially mr and mrs benson!! just liek that! haha i was like ALLLL of this planning, and ALLLL of this anxiety, for this?! it happened so fast!


right after the ceremony, we took pictures outside, they were calling for severe t-storms, and the sky was gray allll day... but opened up wiht hot hot sun for our pictures, which i am so happy about because the thing i was most excited for with pictures, was the location i picked. and specific shots i wanted. and we were able to do everything, plus more, that i wanted! i cannot WAIT to see these pictures! ahh. theyre gona be so good! then we went to our reception after that, which was amazing too!!! we took a few more specific shots that i wanted done there, then i just told my photog to go around and shoot anything eye catching. i kept getting complements on our CPs that i DIYd, everyone loved the food, and people were genuinly having a good time, which was awesome to see!! drew and i had rehersed out garter/bouquet toss. we were going to do it to pat benetar, hit me with your best shot... and on "fireeeee awaaaaayyyyy" we were both gona toss at the same time. like we made up a dance and everything to do with it. welllll the dj had issues with the song and it wouldnt play!!! luckily we had a back up, and it went fine, but it wasnt as "fun" as i wanted it to be, so i was kinda upset about that. another thing, major thing, that we FORGOT to do... cut the cake. never did it. haha!! idk HOW we forgot, but it never happened. its actually still in the fridge at the venue. the mini cupcakes were passed out, but we never did a cake. oops! neverthe less, even with those few hiccups, the day was amazing! drew and i had such a good time dancing till 1am and hanging out with our friends. we were both sooooo ready for bed by the time we got home though! and today we are leaving for our 4 day mini-moon in the poconos!! yayy. hopefully by the time we get back my photog will have some teasers for me, for you! heres a kinda blurry one that someone tagged on facebook:

Nothing ever goes 100% smooth, but it sounds like some of your "hiccups" worked in your favor . That smile from across the room was just what you needed to calm your nerves, what a sweet moment that you two will cherish forever :)...as for the cake... Well that only means you guys were having an amazing time, so much so that it got overlooked, no big deal... The most important thing is that you and your guests had a great time celebrating your love... And from the sound of things thats exactly what happened..Congratulations Mrs.!!!!

Congratulations!


The couple peeks at your FB pics are gorgeous.


Hiccups in a wedding day are some of the stronger memories you will probaly remember.  Years to come it will bring lots of laughter that you didn't cut your cake. 


Love the moment of your daughter raising her arms to her Daddy.  That is the kind of love you get to celebrate for the rest of your life.  Just think, in years to come, when you tell your daughter what she did on your wedding day, how special that will make her feel.   Precious.

How on earth did I miss your recap??? I suppose because it was on my birthday and I was drilling with my reserve unit! Oh you look so angelic and happy!!!! And even with the "hiccups" along the way, your day still turned out the way you wanted. Congratulations my dear and welcome to the Mrs. Side!!!!!!
