Our Wedding Story: The Ceremony


April 19th 2014

If you missed "Pre-Ceremony" of Our Wedding Story. 
It's okay, Click HERE to enjoy part 1.

The Ceremony Music began to play as our processional began.
Our Family and Wedding Party walked down to 
"A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri.






Because one of our officiant was also a bridesmaid..
the guys walked up the isle alone and the girls did as well.

And then it was time for me and my daddy to make our way 
down to my handsome almost husband. Seriously, He looked so good.



I wanted the song I walked down the isle to, be a song that didn't
have words. I wanted my SR and I to be able to focus on each other
in that moment. And so I chose a beautiful instrumental called
"Kisses and Cake" by John Powell.





After my parents gave me away, something I wanted both of them
to be apart of. (which I recommend to all brides)....
It was time for our Ceremony to start. Speedracer and I took a lot 
of time to pick out Scripture we loved and things we wanted to 
be included in our ceremony. We designed it to our wishes and
even wrote our own ring ceremony and vows. It was perfect. 





We decided to do a three strands ceremony in honor of 
Ecclesiastes 4:12 which is the Cord of Three Strands.
We laughed because it didn't turn out exactly as planned, but 
we got through it and we even came up with an awesome handshake
for a extra little Unity Ceremony. It was a guest favorite.

We then exchanged our rings, said our vows, and it was time to
pronounce us Husband and Wife. Our Officiant thought it was a cute
way to announce us in Speedracer Fashion and so the exact words were
"Devon, Start your Engine and Kiss your Bride"



I GIVE YOU, MR. AND MRS. SPEEDRACER




Oh, and the guys celebrated by cracking open beers..because..well why not?



And yes, I thought it was hilarious.
We all made our way back down the isle rocking out to
"I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas







and hurried off to take pictures before the party REALLY started..
