Random Things I want to remember about my Wedding Day

•Having a near melt-down at 12:30 p.m. because the Church wasn’t unlocked. How was I ever to get my make-up done and dressed, if the church was locked???? Yes, I felt quite silly when a church member showed up 5 minutes after my melt-down to let me in.
•My niece Lacey telling anyone who would listen that she was “Kimbo’s Princess” for the day since she was the flower girl.
•My other niece London pulling my veil over her own head while taking photos
•My nephews looking so daper in their tuxes.
•Trying to use the bathroom while in a wedding dress – Thank heavens for bridesmaids who were willing to hold my dress up for me.
•Eating an entire cheese ball in the choir room before the wedding – we had been taking pictures for nearly 3 hours at this point, and breakfast was long since gone. I was starving. Thankfully, my brother in law had brought the leftovers from the lingerie shower to the church, and Mrs. Rita had set up a nice spread in the choir room. Without that cheese ball, I might not have made it down the aisle.
•Looking at the clock in the bridal room and realizing that had just 10 minutes before my wedding would begin. At that moment, I had never been more scared in my life. I was shaking. Thankfully, M has nearby - so I grabbed him and we shared a quiet/private moment in the Church's choir room, which calmed my nerves.
•Waiting on the porch of the church for the bridal march to start, and having a car full of my Daddy’s former students drive by – they stopped to wave and shout couragement.
•Waving and blowing kisses at family and friends while I walked down the aisle.
•Laughing at Mikey’s silly jokes during the ceremony. I think he kept me laughing to keep me from crying.
•Seeing people who I thought would never dance, really cut a rug at the reception. This included my parents, my grandmother, my Aunt Mary (she dance with my Daddy, who is her big brother), and my Aunt Joyce and Uncle Ronnie.
•The rose petal fight during one of the songs. The dance floor had a large L made of rose petals in the middle. After the 2nd song, I kicked the petals. And next thing I knew, all the kiddos and a few of the bridal party members were throwing them at one another.
•The conga line that wrapped around the entire reception area.
