Pinot Butter & Jellies: The Ceremony Begins

January 24, 2011

Last we left off, the scene was set, we’d wrapped up our pre-wedding photos, and guests had started to trickle in for our 5 PM ceremony.  I retreated back to the bridal room to get ready.  I reapplied my lip gloss and perfume…

…and then Mama Jelly helped me put on my veil. My veil was my “something old,” and had a very special story behind it, which you can read about here [http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/04/08/something-old-something-new%E2%80%A6/].  As luck would have it, the veil matched my dress perfectly.

Now that my veil was on, I finally felt like a bride.

Papa Jelly thought so, too.

Soon, our Day of Coordinator came into the bridal room to tell us that the ceremony was about to begin.  [Side note: if you’re considering getting a DOC, seriously just do it!  It was so nice not to have to worry about logistical details, especially with a bridal party as big as ours.]  As our DOC lined up the bridal party, we heard the sweet sounds of Vitamin String Quartet’s “All I Want is You” tribute to U2 starting to play outside.  The processional was beginning.

Mr. Jelly walked out first, with both of his parents:

I love that Mr. Jelly walked out with both of his parents.  And isn’t his mom’s gown just beautiful?

Then came Mama Jelly, escorted by my big brother:

Mama Jelly looked far and wide until she found this gorgeous MOB dress. I think she looked just stunning.

The song slowly faded out and Vitamin String Quartet’s version of Bittersweet Symphony came on.  Our bridal party then walked out in pairs:

Next came the ringbearers and flower girl pup:

Stinson looked positively regal, and took his job quite seriously.

Ringbearer #1 did a great job walking down the aisle.  Isn’t he a cutie?

Since Ringbearer #2 would only walk down the aisle alongside the flower pup, our friend Sara got the double duty of escorting both of them.  She handled it remarkably well!

The processional was drawing to a close, and it was almost time for me and Papa Jelly to walk down the aisle.
