May Day!: Here Comes the Bride

After our flower girl, Dee, started down the aisle, the doors at the back of the Stone Hall closed, and Daddy Goodlaff and I stepped forward. 

The string trio began the opening chords of Canon in D...

And the doors opened: 

Daddy Goodlaff and I headed down the aisle, and I as I walked past my family and friends, I tried to take it all in--to smile and take mental pictures of the room, the people, and my soon-to-be husband.

I wanted to remember everything.  Every single detail of the moment I had worked so hard for, planned for over a year was finally right there in front of me, and I wanted time to slow down.

Thing is, I wasn't really walking slowly. Daddy Goodlaff says I was practically sprinting down the aisle. I vaguely remember him telling me to slow down, and stop trying to run down the aisle.  Still, how could I help it?  This was waiting for me at the end of my path:

Finally our walk was at an end,

Daddy Goodlaff passed me over to Mr. Goodlaff,

And we were finally standing together, about to be married!
