the ceremony

by | Sep 3, 2009 | Daily life, Noteworthy

So even after all the craziness that led up to the ceremony last weekend, the actual wedding went off without a hitch. Thankfully, I didn’t once trip on the stairs leading up to the altar any of the many times I had to straighten out Lauren’s dress and veil.

Eric mentioned that a lot of people seemed to be a little worried about me descending five stairs backwards multiple times in 3.5 inch heels and at the end I got loads of compliments and an invite from the priest to help them with the 2:30pm wedding. :)

Here are some of the highlights… I think Eric did a fantastic job even though he doesn’t often take photos of people.
