I can honestly say, in hindsight, the most important part was the ceremonyit was the whole point. The most rewarding parts were the speeches our friends and family madewe had a wedding because we wanted to share this momentous occasion with our community, and feeling their love coming back at us made it worth it. The party? It was fun.
In fact, it was a lot of fun.
But then it wound down, and then it was over. Eighteen months of planning, three days of activities, and eight hours of event... done. So fast!
It was a wonderful day and I'm so grateful that we got to have it, to share it with our friends and family, and that I was able to share it with all of you. I'm ready to say good-bye to our wedding, but not to Weddingbee... I still have a few nuggets of wedding wisdom I want to share before I sign off as Mrs. Spaniel for good. So, for the moment, I'll let Grandma Spaniel say good-bye instead.
