Yay! They finally let us inside!


Okay. We’re walking up the aisle…I’m kind of surprised at this point. I’d been waiting for our wedding for so long that it was kind of hard to believe that it was actually happening.


Mr. Lollipop sees me for the first time.


The boys all lined up in the front.


My dad and I arrived at the front. I’ve never had this many people look at me at one time before.


At this point my parents offered me in marriage. I’m glad that my parents got their own speaking part, but this is the one part of the ceremony I wish we’d done a little differently. I really wanted my in-laws to offer Mr. Lollipop, too, but I got a straight ‘no’ from our pastor and I didn’t feel like fighting about it.

Eh. I’ll admit that it’s small in the scope of potential problems. I actually hadn’t thought about it for months until I sat down to write this recap. *shrug* I still really like our pastor.


The Pastor asks if there are any objections.


I looked over my shoulder to see if there were any takers. I think our guests took my expression as the stink-eye. Luckily, my family finds this kind of thing to be funny and everyone laughed.


My mom laughed, too.


We passed the test (Yay! We’re not related or already married to other people!) and my dad stepped aside.


Mr. Lollipop takes his place at my side.
