RECAP! Ceremony!

WARNING: This post is mostly pictures. :)

The guests had arrived..
.Our communion was ready and our wedding bands were shiny...We were ready to go. We took some fun pictures right before. All my maids wore different colored shoes to highlight their personalities that might get lost amongst their black dresses that looked the same. Plus, it made for a great group shot!
We took a fun picture with my brother Charlie and got him his "Charlie's Angels" shot.This is us in the elevator headed down to get married! Giving my girls a pep talk before we walk down the aisle. I almost started crying and it was something along the lines of "I can't imagine this day without you here with me. I am so grateful for your friendship...yada yada yada."Below is Mr. Scott waiting for me. I got a peak of him before he got a peak of me and I almost lost it. I am just so in love with him and felt like this was such a perfect beginning to our long journey. :) This is my father and I getting ready to walk down. I walked down the aisel to Thomas Newman's "Walkaway". I think it is a beautiful song and always wanted to walk down the aisle to something from a movie soundtrack. I had everyone else walk down to Debussy's "Claire de Lune" because it's one of my favorite songs and I didn't want anything too "weddingy".Right after I walked down the aisle, there was a brief welcome and then Mr. Scott and I grabbed a rose and he gave one to his parents and I have one to mine. No one knew about this except Mr. Scott and I and our parents were really pleasantly surprised. We just wanted to additionally honor them in some way.Time to get married! (Look at all the tears in the second picture below!!) I am so glad we did a congregational affirmation. We basically had Chuck (the man marrying us), ask the congregation if they promised to uphold us in our marriage, love us, encourage us, support us, etc. Everyone gave an enthusiastic yes, but it was so nice to turn around and see all of the faces who love us so dearly staring back at us. I really liked that part.I am very intent on getting my vows to Mr. Scott correct. :)Here is Mr. Scott putting my wedding band on my finger. I'm taken fella's! See my bling!Here I am putting Mr. Scott's wedding band on him.Taking Communion was something that was extremely important to us and I am so glad we did it. Not to mention our photographer got a lot of great shots! ;)We waited a few moments even after we finished communion to just take in the moment and hang out. It was nice to be able to just chat with Mr. Scott for a few minutes and catch up on our days and where we were. We laughed and told jokes and I think it ended with me say, "We get to bone later!" Yes I'm classy. :)
Here it is! Our first married Kiss!
Right before the recessional, we had everyone look up to the seond floor where our photographer got a shot of everyone. I am so glad to have this so I have a memory of everyone that was there! Then we were off to the reception! Next up...Recap! Reception Details!
