RECAP: Ceremony

Friday, September 10, 2010

Arriving at the church is where I suddenly felt a change in my all around aura. I was chocked up. I could hardly breath. Fainting was definitely on my "to do" list. I am not one to faint nor feel jittery or shaky. I thought I had mentally prepared myself for any "crazy" moments but it was evident that these feeling were happening and there was nothing I could do but to feel them and embrace them. So I did. I felt it all. Scared, frightened, nervous, happy, excited!
The bridal party fell into line....

while Ramon waited at the end of the altar for me

Seeing my bridal party walk one by one out the door seemed like an eternity

but I was a good girl.

I waited...

and waited....

and waited.

It wasn't until my little flower girls, Tianna, Macayla and Aleah sprinkled the aisles with their adorable smiles.

When I saw the back for their pretty curly hair... the doors shut and BOOM! It was time! My father and I glanced at each other, took a deep breath and squeezed each others hands.

The doors opened and there I saw my handsome groom waiting at the other end of the aisle for me.

I've heard of stories being told of when a bride walks down the aisle the room freezes and you begin to hear soft gasps. Well, it's true! The room did freeze and I heard the gasps!

I heard soft voices saying things like "WOW!", "Awww", "She's beautiful" and "Look at her dress". All was very sweet and super flattering but my main focus was my soon to be husband at the other end.

Walking down that aisle seemed like it too a million years. But I was okay with that. I wanted to take my time and made sure I soaked every moment of this all up.

And there he was.

Yet another emotional moment. When it was time for my father to give me away... he unveiled me and held on to me sooo tight. I could actually feel him crying on my shoulder. I embraced this moment and then tried to pull away. He held on tighter. At that moment, I whispered in his ear and said "It's okay dad... I'll always be your little girl". He looked at me with a smile and wiped his tears away.

Turned around and gave Ramon a hug.

The ceremony was just as beautiful.

Our vows were said.

We were bonded as one.

Rings were exchanged

A promise of fortune was displayed.

There was only one thing left to do!


I then looked into his eyes and said "WE DID IT!"

The priest announced us for the first time as Mr and Mrs Ramon Nobela Jr!

The church cheered

Okay... seriously.... can we just take a moment here..... I am a true Grand-daddy's girl (as well as a daddy's girl). My grandfather stopped me in my tracks right before we had to take altar pics... He threw himself in my arms and started crying which of course played the domino effect on me. Oh how I love this sweet precious moment!

RECAP: On My Way to Say "I DO"!

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Another calm moment. I really felt unstoppable! I never felt so right as I did at this moment. I was ready to become Mrs. Nobela!

My Maid of Honor, Jenni, was so good to me. She never once left my side. Without her, I do not know what I would've done.

Walking towards our stretch hummer was when the reality of this day started to kick in.

hehehe, check out my face in the photo below. Can we say "OH EM GEE"! eeek!

As for my nerves.... the moment of truth was now.... the first step I took... out of the hummer... onto church grounds.... where I would be professing my love.... in front of 275 people....

took place NOW!

....all there was left to do was to say those 2 simple words....

RECAP: Getting Ready

Sunday, September 5, 2010

Getting Ready was AMAZING! I had this indescribable feeling of calmness and serenity. It was a feeling I never felt before. At that very moment, I knew this was my day and no one could or nothing could ruin it. My morning was filled with my nearest and dearest family and friends nibbling on morning brunch and sipping mimosas. My hair designers and make up artists arrived bright and early to get my girls of 8 all dolled up.

My Attire

Putting on my dress meant my mom and sister had to be there. I wouldn't have it any way. My mom has been such an angel to me during the whole dress fiasco! She was there from the very beginning and I insisted on her being there for the end. She helped me step into my dress. She zipped up my dress and clasped on my custom made swarovski crystal belt she had made just for me. She teared as I suspected. My mom is the best! I wouldn't have had it any other way then her getting me dressed!


And who else's turn would it be other than MY GIRLS!!

Check out my girls working their dress. Just gorgeous!!
