Wedding Day

Good morning and Happy Wedding Day to me! I'm not actually 100 percent sure if I can actually post this because my hotel internet does not seem to be really functioning, but if I send it tomorrow, I sent it tomorrow :)


This morning is absolutely gorgeous outside. I'm sitting on the deck of my hotel room, looking out at the ocean for miles and I can't really complain basically. In fact, I don't even know if there is a single cloud in the sky right now. But the thunderstorms are supposed to move in later, so I'm not getting cocky or anything (60% chance...I don't like that it goes above 50...and the fact that now they are saying showers AND thunderstorms, rather than just thunderstorms). This is what the view looks like from my deck- except today their are more waves and no people sitting outside yet...

Obviously I could not fall asleep last night because that's me- can't sleep under stress or excitement, my body does not distinguish between the two. I do enjoy having 1 am epiphanies about how this wedding will still be fantastic even if it decides to thunderstorm right at 5:30. I know everyone has been telling me that all week but I can't say I 100 percent believed them. I noticed, for example, that people who had absolutely gorgeous wedding days seem to say it the most, which is just annoying- yeah of course your wedding "would've been fine" if it rained, it didn't rain! On the other hand, the handful of my friends and family who did have the "lucky" rain, are much quieter in their assurance that it won't matter if it rains, because they know it at least a tiny bit was not cool. Anyway, you know that commercial, "a bad day in Florida beats a good day anywhere else" ? That's how I feel about Eric- a bad day with Eric is better than a good day with someone else. This won't really apply today because like everyone says, it's going to be a great day even if anything goes wrong. However, I assume that in a marriage (similar to the last 5 1/2 years) there will be bad days, but I'd rather get through them with Eric than anybody else.


Other thoughts today...


Our rehearsal went well, as did the rehearsal dinner and welcome party.

Katie gave a speech at the rehearsal dinner that made everyone cry, but it was really good. And, my other friend Tiff did a slideshow of pictures of me and Eric- from childhood and now. Basically I had to hold it together the whole rehearsal dinner. Hopefully today the speeches today will be funny, what do you think Caroline?


I'm tired. Shoot, I wish I slept more. I don't even know if it was necessarily that my wedding was today, or that I was in a hotel room. I'm terrible at sleeping the first night anywhere new. What is my deal?


Anyway, I just checked the weather and the chance of rain has obviously gone up a lot. What do you think everyone would say about me moving the ceremony to 8 am? Haha just kidding- a bad day with Eric is a good day anywhere else. That's my mantra for the day :)


I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Next time I blog I'll be a married woman. Whoa hoo!

  10. Have a great day Kelly and stop worrying!!! The day I got married I just tried to go with, whatever happens happens. It doesn't matter if you wake up and it is 36 degrees out in August, or if it clouds over and all of your pictures look like crap, or if it starts pouring as soon as you start. Because you are getting married and it is time to celebrate. ;)

  12. I am very impressed to see you blogging on your wedding day! Congratulations! I heard about the rain and thought of you immediately. I checked the weather constantly before my Cape wedding (2 years ago this week!). I completely understand the yearning for beautiful pictures on the beach. That's what it seems a Cape wedding is all about. But I also know that you will have a day full of beautiful memories regardless. I haven't met your husband-to-be, but the two of you look so happy together. I wish you a beautiful day and a beautiful life together! :)
