Our Wedding :: The Rehearsal

The Rehearsal was held at the park on Friday, the day before the wedding. It was supposed to rain that day, but it was beautiful out, giving us high hopes for the next day.

Everyone was in attendance and on time except for one bridesmaid who couldn't make it because of work. I chatted with the Best Man, who we asked to run the Rehearsal for us, to let him know how things were supposed to go. We ironed out a few details and then he took over.

I went to the end of the dock where the ceremony would be held to see how everything would look with the bridal party coming down the staircases and down the aisle.

The 1st run-through went well. Then it was my turn...

And then we practiced what we'd be doing the next day, only 26 hours from then...

My Maid of Honor made a joke, "You gonna be bouncing around like that tomorrow, too?" Apparently, I was so elated/anxious, I was doing a nervous, happy bounce while holding Philip's hands and the officiant was practicing his part of the ceremony.

Our immediate family, bridesmaids minus one, groomsmen and "honorary groomsmen" - one of Philip's best friends who we asked to walk his sister down the aisle in place of his dad.

It was a hot, sunny day and a great Rehearsal. We were all glad with how things went, but were glad to get out of the heat and get fancied up to go to dinner and drinks...
