The story of our wedding
Matthew and I got married at The Loft on Pine on September 8th and it was honestly the dreamiest day of our lives. We spent the morning getting ready with our respective wedding parties. Matthew and his guys were in the groom’s suite in the basement and my ladies and I got ready in the bridal suite on the third floor. Matthew made a perfectly curated playlist of his favorite songs from recent days and throwbacks from his youth that the guys listened to. The girls and I essentially just listened to Non Stop from Hamilton for 5 hours. After we got dressed we took pictures with the wedding party and our respective families (we didn’t do a first look).
As we got closer to when our guest were to arrive, our coordinators tucked us away so we wouldn’t be seen. When the time came for the ceremony to start we both were feeling a bit nervous and very excited. When we finally saw each other it was super overwhelming. We both had so many emotions and were very teary eyed (well he was teary eyed, I was fully crying. I’m always crying). Our ceremony was relatively short. We shared the vows we wrote each other, made traditional vows, exchanged rings, kissed, then were pronounced husband and wife.
After the ceremony, we spent a few minutes in the bridal suite alone. It was our first time alone together the whole day! Then we headed off to take pictures with family and take our sweetheart photos. We took most of our sweetheart photos at the top of a nearby parking structure.
When we returned the reception started and it was a blast. We ate, drank, and got to spend some quality time with our friends and family who had traveled from all over the world to celebrate with us. The dance floor was packed the whole night. When we drove away at the end of the night we were exhausted but elated. Seriously the best day ever.
