Check out my bridesmaid's faces!
What would you do if your husband to be blurted out laughing hysterically and uncontrollably and didn't stop for about 60 seconds in the middle of your ceremony? Oh, and did I mention the big booger that he snorted out onto his face in the midst of the laughter? How about if your future father in law (who was officiating the wedding) gave the sweetest benediction wishing Andy and Caroline a very happy marriage? Interestingly enough, my name is not Caroline.
Andy, trying to get a hold of his laughter!
I know most people would be horrified, but I (we) laughed then (uncontrollably) and I laugh now remembering my wedding day and knowing that one of the most memorable things my guest (and I) recall about my wedding was the laughter and joy. It's been about 3 months since we've tied the knot, and since our wedding day we have been together for almost 24 hours a day (literally). We decided that we were going to quit our jobs, sell everything we owned and travel as much and as long as we could until the money ran out after we got hitched. We often ask ourselves how we can enjoy spending so much time together especially knowing that travel can bring out the worst in people.
I honestly think it's because we laugh so easily and so much together; we can be complete nerdy McNerderson's and goof off and act like kids. Being goofy and acting like a kid came pretty naturally for him--he was a youth pastor and "played" all day for his job. Me on the other hand, I am the typical only child--straight and narrow and serious, and I didn't know that I'd ever feel comfortable being silly with someone. But how can I help it? He makes me laugh...I mean hard...the kind of laughing that hurts so bad that you can't breath and your gasping and snorting and holding on to your sides because your abs feel like they might explode kinda laughing.
I love that laughter is what so many people remembered about my wedding and that our marriage has so much laughter in it.
What did you remember most about your wedding? Or if you're soon to be married, what memories do you hope people leave with?
