Adam and I have received multiple messages from followers wanting more details about our October 2014 Wedding, so why not do a little Throwback Thursday and relive our big day by sharing the sounds of our ceremony.
Everything was perfect. Beyond any expectation I had and more than I could ever imagine. Our wedding was us. We tried to make it as personalized as we could- from the venue to the food – every little detail was a piece of each of us.
If you’ve not seen our previous wedding posts, Adam and I said “I Do” at an airport hanger in Peachtree City, GA. Guests had a view of the runway and the beautiful sunset behind our rustic alter. While guests arrived we had a few tunes playing in the background. I can’t remember all that we had on loop and who knows where the iPod, but here’s a little sampling!
Joey, my younger Brother helped to seat our Mom, while Adam escorted his parents to their seats. As the rest of our family was seated and our Bridal Party arrived “Bella’s Lullaby” by Carter Burwell was playing in the background.
One of my favorite parts of our wedding was walking down the isle. As a young girl it is something you think about all the time. How you’ll walk, what you will wear, will you cry or not. Once my Dad and I made it to the double antique doors draped in burlap my nerves really kicked in. I heard the crowd shuffling to stand up, which my Mom will forever say they stood up too early- she had strict instructions to stand at the 10 second mark.
I don’t remember much about the ceremony from that point on, but I remember looking up at my Dad, smiling at him, squeezing his arm and fighting to hold back tears. I looked over to my right-hand lady, Melissa and said, “Let’s go.”
“You Sure?” Melissa questioned.
“Yes.” I answered
Before my forever planned Grand Entrance to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri could happen, Dad and I walked out together, towards Adam.
It was all I could do to hold back my tears. I couldn’t look at anyone in the crowd, especially my Mom and Aunt Tina- I simply focused on Adam.
Thankfully I met him with just being a little teary eyed. Something we both had in common. I am tearing up sharing it with you now. It was simply perfect.
I’m so glad we chose an untraditional song to walk down the isle to. Now, each time I hear “A Thousand Years” tears start flowing. I relive that moment, our moment once again. The butterflies come back and I can’t help but smile.
Of course I am partial, but I absolutely loved our day. We’d love to hear the personal touches you added to your wedding. Did you pick out a unique song too? Stay tuned for more Throwback Thursday Wedding posts to come- we have many, many more details to share!
We hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed Moments as much as we are!
Adam & Holly
