People often describe their wedding day as a blur, a rushed experience or as a dramatic or stressful time. My wedding day could never be described as any of those things. The day I married my husband was one of the most cherished days of my life. There was so much love and excitement in the air, it really allowed me to be calm and stress free. I knew God could not have sent me a better husband, and I was ready to celebrate this moment with my loved ones.
One of my favorite parts of the day was the introduction of the bridal party and my husband and I at the reception. I believe this moment truly set the tone for the rest of the reception. We allowed our bridal party to pick a song to be introduced to at the reception that best described them. As each couple of the bridal party came out to their songs and danced, our guests began to have such a good time because the mood was light and fun. The bridal party came in the reception to songs like, “Blessed” by Big Sean, “Back that ass up” by Juvenile and “Back to Back” by Drake. It was truly a fun moment that I will always thank my bridal party for giving me. By the time the bridal party had all been introduced, my husband and I were ready for our grand introduction! AND IT WAS A HIT! The song we choose to enter the reception to was “Public Service Announcement” by Jay -z. The song starts off by saying, “Allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is . . . . .” We came in jamming! My husband and I were so excited, we were on cloud 9. Our bridal party and guests joined in with our excitement and we could feel their energy. It was truly an AMAZING moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life. It’s moments like that, that make my wedding day so special to me. My wedding wasn’t a blur, it wasn’t a rushed experience filled with drama and stress. It was simply a celebration. A celebration of LIFE, LOVE, and HAPPINESS. And to my friends and family, I will always be thankful for that experience!
