I don't really even know what to say. I can gush and get all gooey, but really, this blog isn't hard core MY PERSONAL LIFE AND FEELINGS, but I am so super happy.
JD was so handsome. I looked like a pretty pretty princess. Everyone thought our priest was pretty much the best ever, and that he gave the best homily ever. A lot of people liked the excerpt from Goodridge. People loved the party and the food (I think), and the first dance was just fantastic. For me at least. Everyone else just got to stare at us stare at each other :-)
I know I wanted a smaller wedding, but actually, I did have a lot of fun. and while people do say something goes wrong at every wedding, the only things that went "wrong" at ours were very small-- the flowers were lovely but not at all what I ordered, and the bar at the venue decided that cherry heering and maraschino liquor would work totally the same in a cocktail, which... they are both cherry, sure, but have VERY different flavor profiles, and different colors, which meant that their attempt at our cocktail was too sweet and not green. But as things go? No big deal! No one noticed, and no one cared! (well, JD and I cared about the cocktail. But whatever, people seemed to enjoy chartreuse and tonics instead)
And the ceremony itself was so, so, so perfect. So perfect. I cried, but I was able to stop and keep it under control and say my vows without desperate sobbing.
So yeah. I'm married!!! Which is awesome! And tonight, we're back at home, both still exhausted from our whirlwind of days and love and excitement and friends (seeing everyone from so many stages of life together was... intense. So, so, cool).
I've got nothing political or ideological here to say, just-- I'm in love, and I'm thrilled, and I have the best husband in the world :-)
