This is how our Big Day was. We woke up at 7AM, checked the weather forecast, no rain according to the weather men. Lucky us!
9AM started raining like the end of the world was coming. It was not your typical rain, it was the kind of rain that would make you embark on Noah's Ark.
Oddly enough, I remained calm despite this and thought to myself that it should stop in an hour or two.
11AM the rain not only it didn't stop, it got worse and my street was flooded now. It's a good thing I don't have to wear a white, long, wedding dress with a trail today I thought. Oh, wait....
12PM one hour left to my hair appointment. I initially wanted to wear my hair down, with loose curls, but of course that couldn't be the case any longer. I started looking online to find a wedding hairstyle that would look good on me and downloaded a picture on my phone so I could show it to my hairdresser.
12:30PM took my make-up case out and started applying my make-up. It didn't turned out as planned. The fact that the sky was dark and I couldn't apply my make-up in natural light has affected the final result.
Again, oddly enough, I remained calm. Normally, I would have screamed my lungs out and choke someone while cursing Mother Nature, but I was calmer than a Buddhist monk.
12:50PM My dad picks me up and drives me to the hair salon. Driving through the downpour of rain was not easy, but we got there safe and sound.
2:15PM got back home, my cousin and aunt came over to help me dress. Still pouring cats and dogs outside. My uncle drove us to the church. My dress was already a mess, but I didn't care. My family and friends were waiting outside the church and the smiles on their faces made me forget everything that went wrong until that point.
4PM The wedding ceremony ends, we get inside our cars and drive to the wedding place. As soon as we arrived, the rain stopped and all the clouds blew away. It's funny how our wedding song (play it here) described our day perfectly.
5PM We begin our wedding photo shoot and my husband, as usual, can't stay still for pictures and we end up having two-three good pictures together. Thank you, honey!
7PM The quartet starts playing and I am over the moon. As a fan of classical music, it was really important to me to have a quartet welcoming the guests.
8PM The moment that my husband was terrified of the whole time was up next. The bride and groom's first dance. "It's just a dance" I kept telling him, but he wouldn't listen. He was red like a lobster and nervous like a smuggler at a border crossing. I couldn't stop laughing.
10PM Everyone launches a sky lantern and the sky lights up. It was the best moment of the evening.
12AM Cake time! Nom, nom.
2:30 AM The curtain falls. Not literally thank God! The wedding day has come to an end and we are exhausted, but happy.
It was everything that I had imagined? Yes!
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
