"A vivid memory"
I chose my wedding for today's blog post because it is truly one of the most vivid memories that I have. I got married in Las Vegas, hey NOW! It was the very first time that my husband and I had visited the city and we decided to do it up properly with a wedding. ;)
No, Elvis was NOT at my wedding.
No, we did not go through a drive through chapel.
Finally, NO the words "little", "best", or "wedding chapel" were not anywhere to be found when we got married.
Our wedding was actually well thought out, classy, and a beautiful occasion that had been planned out months before we arrived in Las Vegas. Rich and chose Las Vegas because of it's affordability and that the city could double as our honeymoon spot.
Our wedding had to be on a budget and after some consideration we found out that Las Vegas would offer the most bang for our buck so we planned, planned, and just trusted that it would work out, AND IT DID!
Proof of our non-Elvis, Las Vegas wedding.
My most vivid memory was when they played my wedding march music, which wasn't very wedding marchy when I think about it. I chose to walk out to Sigur Ros' Hoppipolla and every time I hear the music I almost burst into tears because I can see the way my husband looked at me that day. I can see the love in his eyes, the way he smiled at me like I was the most beautiful woman that he had ever seen. Apparently, I didn't walk slowly like a proper bride, but pretty much ran to him down the aisle. I had both of my parents walking me down the aisle and I remember my mom pulling me back and telling me to slow down. I didn't slow down. ;)
Here is the song that I chose for my wedding march. I think that the Hoppipolla will always be my favorite piece of music because how easily it captured what I felt for my husband. You might remember this piece of music from the movie Penelope.
What's your most vivid memory? I would love to hear about a moment in your life that sticks out like it was yesterday because I know that the day I married Richard Turpin feels like it just happened. :)
