An Elephant Crashed My Wedding... Seriously!

My wedding day was absolutely perfect.  I was always the little girl who dreamt of the day that I'd walk down the aisle and marry my prince charming and I can honestly say that it turned out exactly how I'd always pictured it... minus the elephant.  But hey, it was a hit and all of our guests were quite impressed to find a real-life elephant at the door of the luxurious hotel when they pulled up to the front door.

Apparently there was an Indian wedding going on at the same venue that evening and it's some sort of royal tradition to ride in on an elephant.  I won't lie...I was a bit hesitant when the hotel coordinator told us that we would be greeted with a giant elephant out front, but all-in-all, I feel like it just added a bit of excitement to the day for us and all of our guests.  

But back to MY wedding... the ceremony went flawlessly (although the kiss was a bit awkward considering the photographer told my husband to make sure to kiss for at least 30 seconds, which is a very long time up at the alter with everyone staring at you).  Wish I could re-do that, but at least our photographer got a good shot of it (he had plenty of time to do so).  And the dress, although gorgeous, required a lot of tugging to keep it up throughout the reception.  Thank goodness I brought a shorter dress to change into halfway through the reception.  The wardrobe change was quite a hit, I must admit!  I got a lot of compliments on it!  

But bottom line, it was absolutely amazing and I will never forget our big day.  It was everything I had ever dreamt of and more!  And best of all, I can officially call my husband, my husband!  Any bride-to-be's who need advice on anything, please don't hesitate to ask me, because I feel like I became a professional wedding planner throughout the whole process as well.  Once I get all of my photos from our photographer, I will be sure to post more pictures for you all to enjoy from our big day!
