Back From The Honeymoon!

Hey everyone! Sorry for not updating in so long but I haven't been on a computer in weeks. It's so crazy going from being online everyday to being in a whirlwind of moving, wedding, and honeymoon business!

First off, I want to let everyone know that the wedding was beautiful and went off without a hitch. Well, other than me accidentally leaving my husband's ring at home on accident and making a groomsman drive back there only to get back 5 minutes before the ceremony. ;) Hey, at least it wasn't my obligation to run around in my huge dress right? That's one of the wonderful things about being the bride: getting help with everything. Of course, most of the time you need it too. (Anyone hear about bridesmaid horror stories of helping the bride back up into a bathroom stall during the reception? Thank goodness I didn't have to go until after it was all over!)

Another strange thing that I realized was that the bride just waits. She doesn't see the ceremony start, or any of the guests come in. She doesn't hear the music begin or the flower girl acting silly. You just wait for your cue, grab your dad's arm, and attempt to walk on in without sobbing or tripping. I was not at all nervous until I was waiting alone in the room with my veil on after all of my bridesmaids had left. There's a moment of OMG WAIT IT'S REALLY HAPPENING! But I wouldn't change it any other way. I'm glad I wasn't stressing the whole time.

The actual ceremony was beautiful. We decorated with purple orchids with white bows on the pews and white and purple flower arrangements on the altar. Our girls wore mint green strapless floor-length dresses with a black velvet band around the waist and the groomsmen had black tuxes with black microfiber shirts, black vests, and mint green ties. We had two flower girls and the ring bearer (cutest boy ever) wore a traditional Korean little boy's hanbok. I wish I could say I could really take in the details but the truth is, all I saw was Ben, the blurriness from my tears, and the inside of my veil. I can't wait to get the photos and wedding video back to see everything I missed. Oh, and one more thing, I finally got to see my ring again after being ringless for a couple weeks because it had to get soldered. OH MAN it looked huge and sparkly with the band attached to the engagement ring! It looks like a whole new ring and I can't stop staring at it.

I will post pictures as soon as I get them back from our lovely photographer Kassia and update soon with the lowdown on the honeymoon. Love you guys and thank you so much for your well-wishes! Now all we have left to do is finish the unpacking, thank-you writing, name changing, gift organizing, and shopping for our new nest...
