Wedding Wednesday - Those Moments You Never Want To Forget

Have you ever been having a moment and thought “I need to remember this moment forever”? I’ve been blessed with so many “rememberable” moments in my life and many of my most recent ones happened during my wedding. For posterity reasons I figured I would share some of them with you.
  • The night before the wedding, going over the last minute details with my mom in the living room and knowing everything would be fine.
  • Some how I actually slept through the night. When I’m stressed, and sometime even when I’m not stressed, I do not sleep well. My mind just will not shut off and I end up going over every detail over and over. But I slept like a baby that night, which was exactly what I needed.
  • Sitting around the bridal room at the church with all the bridesmaids and having Rebecca redo my hair and makeup since it was already looking a little rough after a morning of picture taking.

  • The church ladies closing the doors and mom and I standing there waiting to walk down the aisle. I could not wait to see Andy’s face. I was so sure of my decision and I wanted to get this show on the road. When they opened the doors all I could see is Andy. There could have been a bunch of people I didn’t know in the pews and I would have never noticed. All I could see was his smiling face.

  • Feeling incredibly loved during our reception. This probably is a DUH comment but I never put it all together. You are surrounded by all the people from both of your lives that love you the most. It’s a little overwhelming to realize that you know every single person in the room.

  • Taking a couple minutes to eat just with Andy before we were introduced at the reception. We joked about how maybe no one would notice if we just left for our honeymoon right then. Obviously that would not have worked and I’m so glad we didn’t miss out on such a great party.
  • Dancing with my ESA girls. I have being looking forward to dancing with all my college girlfriends at my wedding for as long as I can remember. That is always my favorite part of ESA weddings. When all the girls are on the dance floor we are in our own little world. They are the best!

  • My brother’s face when I gave him one of my dad’s old handkerchiefs with his initials on it. It was an incredibly sweet moment for just our family.
  • Being totally surprised that Andy stuck his head up my dress to retrieve the garter. To be fair, I couldn’t for the life of me remember which leg it was on and I did have a lot of dress for him to search through.

Your wedding day really is moment overload. You want to remember as much as you can but you can’t process everything. (This is why you hire a photographer and videographer.) But my advice is to take a moment and try to remember exactly how you feel during parts of the day. You may surprise yourself at what you remember for your special day.


  1. I agree! I tell everyone that your wedding is a day unlike others.
    There will be no other place where all your family and friends on both sides will be together. Except maybe your funeral. HA!

  2. Loved reading this post!!!!! so cute and romantic!
