The ceremony took place outside at dusk, and the aisle was surrounded by a beautiful bunch of trees with low-hanging branches. We chose to say our vows in front of an adorable vintage writing desk that we refurbished just for the wedding.
All I could hear in my head for months and months before the wedding were the three songs we chose for the processional. These were three of our favorite songs, and I think each one suited the wedding party perfectly.
We wrote the ceremony completely from scratch and with a little help from our friend and officiant, Matty. He said the best opening words about marriage and how finding the perfect match and falling in love is just the easy part. The rest of our lives will be about loving each other every day, and some days will be tougher than others.
After a short reading, two members of the band played and sang to an acoustic version of "In My Life." It was such a peaceful moment before we got into the vows, which we each wrote on our own in secret. I loved hearing Kyle's vows for the first time! They were funny, meaningful, and oh so true.
We walked out to "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and it was the perfect way to end the ceremony. By this time we were more than ready to start partying with our friends and family!
