You Make My Dreams Come True: The Processional

While the grandparents and our parents were being seated, the bridal party was getting lined up.



Finally it was time to really get the ceremony started. The song that I had known for over a couple years that we’d use for the processional started and everything became so real. Definitely play the song as you look through the pictures!

First was GM J, David’s friend since kindergarten, and BM S, my friend and roomie from school

Next was GM J, one of David’s best friends since preschool, and BM M, one of my best friends from high school

GM M, my ‘little’ brother, and BM R, my older sister


They looked so cute in both I couldn’t choose – This is David’s best man K, his younger brother, and my MOH A, my best friend


David’s other best man, his older brother J, and my other MOH, my older sister A, along with our ring bearer who insisted on walking with his mom and carrying a soccer ball – Hey, at least it went with our colors :) 

Our Jr GM M, my nephew, and our Jr BM K, David’s younger sister – He looks a little solemn because his arm that she’s holding was broken. Poor kid fell off a rope swing the day before our wedding and no one realized how badly he was hurt (and he never said anything!) He was such a trooper for our pictures and ceremony!


And lastly, our flower girls R and A made it ran down the aisle

It was finally my turn. The music had been timed perfectly. The moment I’d imagined of my dad and I coming through the door right as the music swelled was perfect. He looked at me and asked if I was ready, I smiled and nodded and that was it! I was off to marry the man of my dreams and my best friend.
(Be sure to go to 3:47 in the song to get the full effect for these next few.)



I had hoped so badly that David would cry. I figured I’d be crying the whole way, but it wasn’t until I looked at him from down the aisle and saw him biting his lip and his shoulders shaking.. Tears welled up in my eyes and I realized how insanely special that moment was. It was the moment we’d waited years for and a moment we’d never get to relive. 



This was it - We were in front of all of our family and friends finally about to publicly make a promise that we'd already made to each other years before. We were minutes away from becoming husband and wife!

Tip # 11: Go with the flow. Your ring bearer wants to walk down the aisle with your MOH and then screams when he can't follow her up to her spot? Oh well. He's adorable and no one will remember that with all of the other beautiful, touching parts of your day.

  1. I seriously cannot get over your flower girls. SO CUTE!

    Walking down the aisle was so much more emotional for me than our first look. The first look didn't take away anything at ALL (which is something I think a lot of couples worry about.) It looks like it turned out the same way for you two :)

  2. All of the kids in your wedding look sooo sweet! I love the ring bearer with his soccer ball, love how cute the flower girls looked (and that they ran! Too funny!), and ohmygosh your Jr GM makes me want to cry - what a trooper!

  3. I love that song, is it from a movie? I feel like I've heard it before but can't think of where I heard it. These are great pics and I'm dying over the FG's tutus!

  4. @ SP - It is from a movie. :) It plays multiple times during PS I Love You - one of my favs!

  5. OMG so beautiful. The music went perfectly with it and wow. Looks great. This is one of my favorite part of all the weddings. Its such a beautiful moment to see everyones emotions and the brides are alays GORGEOUS walking up the aisle as were you.

    I agree with going with the flow. At my sisters weddding her flowergirl fell down the stairs we were stadning on before the processional and was sobbing. Her dad ended up having to walk with her up the aisle and all the confetti was gone. But it was a beautiful wedding nonetheless

  6. I'm crying again! I was watching David before you started down the aisle. He was so worried that the music wouldn't be timed right for your entrance, and wanted it to be perfect for you! It's true - the "first look" didn't ruin anything. Seeing him gazing at you with such love in his eyes is a precious memory of the day.

  7. You, David and all of your wedding party look so beautiful in these photos! And perfect music choice, love it!

    Funny though, when I was walking down the aisle, I was hoping we wouldn't cry, haha!
