I loved loved loved the location of our ceremony. The Music Stand in Tower Grove Park is such a unique structure that was built back in the 1880’s. And that red top—so cool. The ceremony was exactly what I had in mind after we started planning. It was outdoors, simple and short (I think like 15-20 minutes), and personal.
My Great Uncle was our Officiate, which meant a lot to me. The string trio sounded so lovely. And the fact that two of Tim’s groomsmen shed a tear or two (because Tim never did) was so sweet. I even broke some nerves and caused some laughs when I went to put Tim’s ring on the wrong hand. Oops! I ended up getting it on the correct hand in the end.
It was pretty windy that day and started out super cloudy. The sun came out right as the ceremony started, which is what I’m blaming my blotchy back on. Nerves? No way. [ha!] Oh, and do you know how awkward it feels to kiss in front of 100 of your closest family and friends? Awkward.
