In the Moment: Walking In to a Standing Ovation

And then it was our turn to enter the reception. (In case you're curious where my purse went to, as we were about to go in, I realized I was carrying a purse and looked to Brittani. She quietly placed it at our table so that I could walk in hands free.)

Unlike the processional, we were able to stand at the door - open - and watch our wedding party saunter across the floor. Like so many elements of the day this wasn't really planned - other than the wedding party would be announced. It was great to be able to let events unfold. I didn't realize how many little things I'd overlooked. Brittani and her assistant were able to keep things flowing and make the day we dreamed about a reality.

We'd end by joining our wedding party on the stage. Again unplanned. For some strange reason the impulse to have us all join hands and take a bow struck me. And that's what we did, we linked hands, raised our hands and bowed. We were a little uneven but the smiles on our faces more than made up for the improvisation.
