moments, moments, moments, you guys. always remember it's the moments that matter.
looking back at my own wedding, it still blows my mind how quickly it all went by. just *poof!* and the day was over and our families were on planes and we were back at home on our couch like nothing had even happened. my mom told me to prepare myself for that - the quiet aftermath. she warned me that I could be sad. But I wasn't.
Looking back, though, there are so many things that make me laugh, primarily the things I thought were so important that really didn't matter for a second. making last minute runs to target instead of digging holes in the sand. Trying to fit so much joy into a day instead of just being present and enjoying it all as it came.
my two main do-over's would be to have my family in the same house as me so they could have been a part of the getting ready process, and to have made space for the moment to have photos like this with my sister.
moments you guys. most happen on their own and the rest of it I can guide into being. Just remember to make space for the magic you want on your wedding day. Take a second to to really imagine the things that make your moments sweet, and if you want a picture with your sister make sure she's nearby for the photo op.
