Did you ever imagine how you wanted your wedding to be? I may be a bit strange because I never did.  Maybe I’m just way too practical, or maybe, just way too boring. It’s the same way I never considered the kind of wedding ring I wanted. 

In this post I said my wedding photos constantly made me happy. And they do.

But looking through them recently, I realised that I could definitely see that it was over two years ago.We both seem to have changed. From extra inches added (especially Tee!) to a more sort of mature look.  But there were some amazing and heartfelt moments I’ll forever be thankful for. moments!  When I shared this post, the consensus was for more wedding posts! So here we are – 5 amazing moments for me at #KacheeTee2014 (We didn’t actually have a wedding hashtag as we both were not on Instagram at that time. But if we had, it just may have been that!)

1. The Dress Up

We had too much fun. At least I did. From jumping on the bed & conversations with my sisters about my really getting married, to laughter hugs and selfies with my girls and some of my closest friends. I loved every bit of it.  Ofcourse you probably know from this post that I wouldn’t have enjoyed sitting still for the make up. But we all had good banter, including the photographer, makeup artist and hair stylist. 

2. The Surprise! 

I mentioned in this post how there was one  more personalised item I missed out! Well technically they were two. And remember from this post when I said the first flowers I ever received from Tee was on the wedding day! It was such a surprise I had no idea.  One minute I was a Blackberry loyalist. The next minute, I got lured to the Apple team. The engraved messages at the back of the phone and iPad blew me away. I don’t think I’ll ever give them away. 

3. The Filled Up Church

These days a lot of guests tend to consider the reception bit as the part they like to attend. It’s often about the food, photos and the after party – including all kinds wedding dancers you’re sure to spot. It was therefore genuinely amazing when I walked into the church and saw a full crowd! The pews were full. I know how early people had to leave their houses to get to the destination to avoid traffic. Totally heartwarming. If you were there and I’ve  never actually thanked you in person, apologies. It meant the world to me.

4. The Vows & Surprise Certificate!

Marriage vows are deep. If you take time out to consider the words. Especially when traditional churches have stuck to words like “In sickness and in health; For richer for poorer”. The moment of taking the vows and slipping on the rings in front of family & friends was priceless. Hearing Tee’s voice shake at those words was pretty cool too! Another surprise – and this time for both of us. The priest who joined us (and who is family) got us a certificate of blessing hand signed by the Pope!

5. The Garden Shoot

Before the reception began proper, I’m glad we took some time to take photos with the bridesmaids and groomsmen! The banter and statements like “Did you guys actually just get married!” made such a great moment. A bug might have attempted to get into my dress, but that didn’t ruin the moment. 

Asides these, the reception was pretty fun as well. Despite my fears for dancing, I managed to pull off the couples entrance, our first dance & the father-daughter dance. But I totally couldn’t save my girls. As when there was a dance off between the groomsmen & bridesmaids, they won us hands down! Oh and another cool moment was towards the end when Tee took the microphone and joined the band to sing to me. 

I’m so thankful for these moments. But guess what? Weddings are never  that perfect and there’s often glitches! I had some hilarious ones and the next wedding post will be on those! 

Your turn. What were the best moments of your wedding. Not married? What moments do you look forward to the most?

Love,

Kachee..Xx

pS: Fun Fact: We didn’t have that moment of “You may kiss the bride”. Our Officiating minister isn’t quite a fan of those!

    Kachee. I love these photos. You make me want to get married. And those surprises, what a nice tough. How nice of Tee. On my wedding day, I am looking forward with that first dance with my husband. And hopefully, he gives me an emotional speech on how amazing his wife is and how much he is blessed to be my husband. Haha!I really am just looking forward to the day. And like you, I never really think of that day. I’m not trying to plan it too much because, special moments just… happen.And oh, keep these wedding posts coming. Absolutely love them.Ufuoma http://www.theufuoma.comTravel | Lifestyle | Passion

I also love the gifts and surprises too, I’m not a mushy person at all, but some things can sure turn girls mushy😢😢. I look forward to singing and dancing for my husband on my wedding day, in fact I already have the song, I just hope i don’t forget it🙈 .

    The pictures are beautiful & you made a stunning bride. I loved the personalized gifts and flowers too. Maybe later, we can get Tee’s side of the wedding photos as well?I haven’t really thought about my wedding either but I don’t look forward to the couple/bridal train entrance part or the more traditional dancing parts! I once told my mum that I wasn’t going to do that part where the couple dances and people spray money and her response went in the lines of PJ ‘wee you keep quiet?!’ So, yeah…not looking forward to that!

      Thank you Amarachi!His side (in my opinion) was basic. A group of guys getting dressed, and obviously not jumping from the bed. But maybe I’l ask him to do a sequel to this and share – who knows, there might have been something amazing for him I may have missed.I can totally imagine your mum saying that. Loool! I don’t like to dance, and so I didn’t look forward to the dancing bit at all. But I guess it has to be done. You’ll be fine! Xx

    I love all the wedding posts. I love the colour combo as it looked beautiful in the pictures. What do I look forward to at my wedding? 1. All the dance my husband and I will do. 2. The engagement (I have always loved traditional wedding ceremonies since I was a child and I look forward to having so much fun at mine. 3. The getting ready and time with my girls 4. The entry…I will be walking in with my mum and brother that will be amazing right? I know. What I am not looking forward to? The planning itself. Just like you, I do not know the theme I want neither do I have a colour in mind. I need help with colours by the way.So yeah… when I remember anything, I will come back to update my comment.

Never planned my wedding in my head, but I always picture my groom to be just as sweet. By the way, did you hire two different photographers just incase one ends up giving stories about the pictures not turning out well.
