I’ve said it once and I’ll say a million times over. Our wedding party really came through for us on the wedding day, as they have in standing by us our entire lives. Though most of them are not Catholic and received only cursory instructions during the rehearsal, on the whole, they did a fabulous job remembering just what to do throughout the ceremony, including during the processional.
Since we took the unconventional step of having Stephen walk down the aisle escorted by his parents, followed by his best man, the start of our processional was a bit different than what you might be familiar with during a typical Christian ceremony. It's also different from the newly updated Catholic processional, where the bride and groom walk down the aisle together.
Check out our video clip, which was primarily shot from the church’s balcony. If my sister, the last one down the aisle, seems to be rushing a bit, it’s because the processional started while she and I were still in the restroom, making us both feel a bit rushed!
What will your processional be like?
