Oh boy, 3:00 am did come early on Friday morning, so I went back to bed until 4:30 am when the magic was just about to start. I was not disappointed. I cried her whole 4 minute walk down the aisle. What a dream... man, I really want to be royal.
Her dress was beyond amazing. It wasn't what I had pictured, but it was the perfect dress for the occasion.
She wore Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and even did her own make-up. Amazing! And everyone is saying that Pippa is so much more beautiful and that she out shined Kate on her big day. I could not disagree more. Kate was absolutely regal all day. She will make a wonderful Queen someday.
What I had pictured Kate wearing in my mind was probably something more like her evening reception gown also designed by Sarah Burton. I didn't even think it was possible for her to look more beautiful but I think with her second look she absolutely out did herself.
Even though this will never happen to me it was so nice to feel like I was a part of the whole celebration. I loved when he finally saw her and he said "you look beautiful," I loved when she walked out on the balcony for the kiss and said "oh wow," but by far the thing that stuck with me the most was when the Bishop of London said these two things:
"Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire" - St. Catherine
"In a sense every wedding is a royal wedding with a bride and groom as king and queen of creation, making a new life together so that life can flow through them into the future" - Bishop of London
So that means my wedding will be royal! Yay!
Did anyone else get up early to watch the wedding?
