Our Wedding: The Ceremony

Want the full experience? "Click play"!
Ahh, I get weepy just looking at these photos! When planning our ceremony, we focused on keeping it simple, short, and sweet, we've sat through some loooong wedding ceremonies and didn't want to do that to our guests or each other. For our processional music we chose Going to the Chapel by the Dixie Cups, it was fun and fit the vintage atmosphere perfectly, when I finally made my entrance with my dad everyone started clapping in time with the music! We asked our friend Dave to preside over the ceremony, he's the one person that has been friends with us both separately (I met him at the SAT's as a Junior in high school, Chris met him at the different high school they both attended), as well as a couple. Dave wrote something personalized to read for us, and Chris and I each wrote our own vows. For the recessional, we chose a cover song by Joey Ramone, Chris and I both love older punk music and this song was classic enough while still being fun and celebratory. As we walked out, bubbles floated in the air above us, it was perfect!

CONGRATS! What a beautiful wedding Julie, all the best to you and Chris! I especially love the music choices! I love un-traditional music for wedding processionals - I plan on walking down the aisle to an instrumental Killer Queen, haha.

Congratulations! Aww, this is so sweet. And on a fashion-oriented note, I love that the bridesmaids dresses don't match. It seems so much more relaxed, personal, and comfortable. When I'm a bridesmaid next spring, I hope our bride makes the same choice!

My teeth hurt from the sweetness. Can you just answer one question? How come you didn't wear those colour blocked shoes with the bows? Just curious, the ones you wore were super cute too.
