It was an amazing day. It was overwhelming. It was a blur.
We knew it would be so there were certain moments where we just squeezed each others hands and reminded ourselves that this was one of those moments we would want to remember forever. And so far, we still do.
It's kind of crazy to think about all the work that was done, all the people that were involved and to see it all pass by. There were things that went exactly as planned. There were things that weren't quite as planned, but all worked out just fine. And there were a few things that were lovely to the average observer, and yet were shockingly not what we had planned. But in the end those things were completely unimportant. In the last few days when we've talked all about the ceremony and the reception - no one talks about those things. They are just in the background.
There are so many memories. And yet - we know how many things we missed. So for the last few days we've been asking everyone for two things - their photos and their memories. For the photos we have created an "album" on a site called zangzing.com which is specifically made for groups where a large number of people are all taking pictures at the same event. Everyone can drop off their pictures, and if you see one you like that someone else took you can download it and have it as your own. No need to pay for a thing or get a print. Just download and it's yours. Have some pictures and want to be a part of the party?
To view or post to the album, go to http://www.zangzing.com/
To email over your pictures, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
And as for the stories - why don't you post some of them here? We would love to see your comments with memories, stories and some of the fun details that we didn't get to see!
Over the next few days we'll post some of the things that YOU didn't get to be around for - background info, behind the scenes pics as well as the much requested meditation that Pastor Barb did during the ceremony. But first - let's see those pictures and hear those stories! We're all eyes and ears!
