We got our official wedding pictures yesterday, so for those of you who aren’t on Facebook, have some pics of Nate and me getting married! (I didn’t include any with his family, ’cause I didn’t know if they’d feel comfortable being on some random blog.)
Guess who just got married?!
(Technically I’m writing this on the 1st, since I didn’t want to spend our wedding night blogging, but I’m totally counting it as my July 31st blog post. Fight me.)
It was a very wonderful day. The weather was being iffy, so we decided to just have the ceremony at the hotel rather than at the park as originally planned, but I think it was better this way. No hauling families to and from the park, no burning sun and/or thunderous storms, no people wandering through the ceremony while playing Pokemon Go.
The ceremony itself was awesome. My dad was super nervous walking me down the aisle, but he managed my veil without incident and didn’t pass out. Yay for dad!
The reception was nice, too. We had really good sorbet and super chocolatey wedding cake, then got a bunch of cool presents (and a whole ton of money).
Then Nate and I spent the night at the Kensington Riverside Inn, courtesy of my mom. It was super fancy.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to be married to such an amazing person. We are just right for each other, and I’m excited about spending the rest of our lives together.
(Wedding pictures will be posted on here once we get them from the photographer.)
I got my wedding dress today!
It was a pretty fun experience. My mom, Nate’s mom, and I all went down to the David’s Bridal in Calgary and spent my hour and a half appointment time looking at probably six dresses total. I had a tough time choosing between two of the dresses in the end, but I think I chose the right one. It’ll need some alterations (I’m short as hell; plus, they didn’t have my dress size in that style), but it’ll need fewer alterations than the other dress I would have chosen and seems more appropriate to wear for an outdoor summer wedding.
We (Nate, Nate’s brother Curtis, my mom, and I) also went and saw Captain America: Civil War. It was freaking great. Go see it if you’re into that stuff, but don’t go if you’re not caught up on your Marvel movies. You’ll be VERY confused. Just ask my mom.
