#6 -- Exchanging a kiss and leading the recessional, after we’re at last pronounced husband and wife
I felt so much joy in these brief moments, even though our priest made a couple last-minute mistakes and I had to lead the recessional without my bouquet.
#7 -- Our first dance, the result of many lessons, lots of hard work, and our truly working together as a team
Without a doubt, this was one of my favorite moments! Though my heavy and long gown did throw us off just slightly, we made it through our entire routine to resounding cheers and applause from our guests. It was so much fun!
#8 -- Watching the amazing slideshows my bridesmaids have lovingly created through hours of dedication
I may have had tears in my eyes while walking down the aisle, but I was fully crying by the time my bridesmaid Pooneh’s slideshow was finished. Her perfect fusion of pictures and songs meant the world to me.
#9 -- Dancing the night away with friends and loved ones I haven’t seen in ages
Fun, fun, fun! We really made the most of our dance time!
#10 -- Sneaking off with Stephen for a private walk where we’ll reflect upon all that the day has meant and how our lives have forever changed
While we didn’t have a chance to take a walk entirely by ourselves, we did spend a few minutes alone in the bride’s room at the reception site during cocktail hour. We’d originally planned to join our guests, but after the frantic pace of taking photos out in the hot sun, and the emotional nature of the ceremony, we both needed just a few minutes to unwind. Plus, during our sunset photo shoot, our photographers took a step back, giving us our “moment.”
Do you or did you hope to steal a private moment with your husband during the reception?
