After being together for nine years, we could not believe the day had finally arrived that we would become husband and wife! With about a year of planning going into this, we were constantly being told how quickly the day goes by…we found this to be true! We were both feeling nervous leading up to the ceremony, but all was forgotten when I was finally standing next to Derek holding his hand at the altar.
In terms of the planning leading up to the wedding, the most surprising part was shopping for my dress, a process that I thought would be stressful and very time-consuming. My first day out shopping I had two appointments at different stores where I had no luck. At the end of the day, my mum, bridesmaids and I walked past Brides Selection as we were about to call it quits for the day. I did not have an appointment but thought I’d just pop in to have a look. With the staff being so kind and helpful, I am not surprised that within 15 minutes I found my dress! It was exactly what I had pictured for myself.
The day itself was a very hot, close to 40 degree day, however, everything went perfectly. Everyone enjoyed themselves with good food, wine and dancing!
