The day finally arrived.

I can not even begin to describe the day. Mainly because I do not remember most of it. It is so true what everyone say’s that your wedding day will fly by. It was truly a surreal moment. As I’m typing this and trying to recall all the events I am relying heavily on photo’s, however with all the chaos of the day, I don’t even have that many to turn to!  I’m still waiting on my professional photographs, so hopefully that will help jog my memory.

I can tell you, the day was magical and it ended with me being married to my best friend. My husband. And that is all that matters.

I also was blessed with an amazing wedding party, friends and family, because if anything went array during the day I didn’t know about it. And I am happy to report I think I had only one or two bridezilla moments.

So I know most of you know how weddings go, so here are a few moments that from my day, how I felt, and the amazing end result of marrying the love of my life.

Getting ready was surreal. The whole time my hair was getting done and we were doing make-up it just seemed like another day.  My sister warned me as soon as I put my dress on things would change and I can’t tell you how right she was. Even just putting my under garments on and I started to see things come together, it really started to hit me about what was happening.

 I’m a little bit jealous of the guys. I mean really it probably took them a whole 30 minutes to get ready, then they got to relax and watch everything unfold. I’m sure at this moment I was upstairs freaking out of my one bang strand being out of place…

The ceremony was an absolute blur. I somehow got my vows out, but honestly the whole time I was just staring at Matt. We both could not stop smiling.

Soon it was that time.

“I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride”

I was told by a guest it was one of the longest kisses she’s seen at a wedding, but I think we both kind of forgot where we were and just got lost in the moment.

We soon came back to reality and made our way back down the aisle as a married couple! I love some of the shots my guests got for this moment because you can truly see how happy we are!

Then it was time to party!

I of course don’t have many photo’s as I was too busy being pulled in 1987383274 different directions the whole night. We had initially planned on having 50 people tops, but some how that number crept up to 75. It was so humbling and amazing to have that many people want to come and celebrate with us, but it did remind me why we wanted to keep the number low in the first place. I did not have nearly enough time with  my guests as I would have liked.

I tried my best to spend as much time as I could and one thing that helped was instead of the traditional clink the glasses to get us to kiss, we made a kissing game where our guests had to challenge us to a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors using cards we made with beer bottle caps (our wedding was craft beer themed). It was a good way for us to be able to interact with more guests.

There was a very important man however who did get some special quality time with the bride.

My dad and I’s relationship has really blossomed over the last few years. As we were dancing we both joked about how we forgot people were watching us and we were probably boring them because we were so busy talking during our dance. He did try and spice it up at the end and dipped and twirled me.

Gotta keep the guests entertained! But I think they took care of that on their own.

We made a hashtag for the wedding, so if you guys want to see more random reception pictures check out the hashtag #quirkwedding15 on Instagram.

I really could not have asked for more at my wedding. Everything turned out amazing, I had so much fun seeing and celebrating with friends and family and at the end of the night I was officially Mrs. Quirk.
