Our wedding day started off maybe a tiny bit stressful. We started pictures a few minutes late and they went longer than we meant them to. About 15 minutes before we wanted to be at the venue (about a half hour drive out of town), Brahm and I found ourselves sitting in the lobby of my parents' hotel, waiting for them to finish packing up all the decorations at my house. When they finally pulled up, my dad got out of the van wearing a t-shirt and shorts.
I definitely had a 13 year old girl OMG DAAAAAAAD moment. He threw on his suit in record time but we still made it out to The Berry Barn 30-40 minutes later than we wanted to be there to do some pictures. We rushed through a bunch of family pictures and about 5-10 minutes before the ceremony was scheduled to start the girls went and took some pictures standing in the river, as per my mom's request.
I was kind of stressed because I really hate making people wait for me, even though Brahm kept reminding me "this is one day people can wait for us". We took off our shoes and stepped into the river.
A man standing on the shore watching called out "be careful that she doesn't get cold feet!"
It was a totally lame joke but it was absolutely the tension breaker for the day. We laughed harder at it than we needed to and then just waded around in the water for a few minutes, finally feeling relaxed, doing something fun like wading around in the river.
I think I'll be forever thankful to that random onlooker for breaking the tension on my wedding day.
