Plus, since the wedding party’s processional started while I was still in the restroom, which caused me to rush a bit, things became even more of a blur than they would have been otherwise. But that’s what photos and video footage are for, right?
I just love these shots, which at once capture all of the joy and emotion I felt as I left the bride’s room, rounded the corner, joined my parents at the foot of the aisle, and finally saw Stephen, plus all of our friends and family members, waiting especially for me.
Our bird's-eye video clip also allows me to see everything from a different perspective, plus hear my entire Sound of Music processional, which I can't clearly remember. And yes, it even catches my dad accidentally stepping on my gown at the very end, right after I said "I love you" to both he and my mom. Lucikly, it didn't tear!
LESSON LEARNED: Though it will surely be hard, try to consciously take in every moment of your walk down the aisle. My memories are hazy, but there are things I can definitely recall, such as seeing Stephen, as well as the smiling faces of our guests. This much-anticipated moment will likely fill you with an entire flood of emotions, and will be over in just a few quick flashes of the camera.
What was your walk down the aisle like, or what are your plans for this special moment?
