J & rsquo; was very talkative in my last post. I do not know why but this beautiful day, the memories that I & rsquo; have the best printed are those of the morning preparations.
Arriving at the town hall, j & rsquo; started getting lost in the whirlwind of smiles, kisses and I & rsquo; have struggled to fix my attention so I & rsquo; was moved.
We had a little cheated on & rsquo; time of the ceremony on le carton d’invitation to avoid delays (Champions were among family and friends), gnarf gnarf… It's 30 °, everyone expects us quietly in a corner of & rsquo; shadow on the steps of the Town Hall.
I see that most people have played the game of my super dress code c & rsquo; s funny to see how everyone s & rsquo; coupled to it. My two grandmothers are l & rsquo; a pea, l & rsquo; another striped. Girls are mostly dressed in pea, and their men marinières or striped ties and shirts.
I am looking for my man Eye, He's there, smiling, all beautiful in his bespoke suit, in & rsquo; comfortable in his sneakers as always. Clic clac, I make a small pola !
Hardly time to do a round of kisses, we are called by the & rsquo; Deputy Mayor. Gniiiiiiiiiii this is it, I'm the one who masters but in fact I almost peed on me. Everyone rises s & rsquo; install in the pretty dining wedding the town of Rambouillet as we await with witnesses.
We climb the stairs as the first notes of all you need is love Beatles begin to resonate in the cage d & rsquo; staircase (and the first notes, c & rsquo; is Marseille). In my father's arms, I don & rsquo; lead off (and it either) so that time is moving.
The Beatles – All you need is love
On entre au moment du refrain, I was so intimidated that I hide my nose with my bouquet (Vui, When I'm intimidated, I hide my nose). Vianney m & rsquo; waiting before the big office, with that great smile that never left him.
C & rsquo; is & rsquo; time administrative speeches, reading articles. BLA bla bla… I don & rsquo; have heard NOTHING, small dunce marriage, I spent my time watching my sister who was holding crying, Vianney who was listening to 2, my parents sitting together (20 years I n & rsquo; had not seen it)…
J & rsquo; waiting my turn to say yes.
What I & rsquo; did in a small almost inaudible cry escape leaving a tear. La loose, beside me Vianney always notable progress. D & rsquo; as much as j & rsquo; have struggled to put his alliance, bravo !
And this ugly Deputy mayor who wanted to let us go without a kiss. J & rsquo; heard rumbling in the ranks, there was no question that & rsquo; n & rsquo it; not kiss the bride (yes I know we don & rsquo; was not in & rsquo; but even church).
And bam ! Non mais Oh !
There you go, we were married. It flies the town, barely 20 minutes and pfiouuuu c & rsquo; was completed. C & rsquo; s funny d & rsquo; be a little leading roles time d & rsquo; day, all these people who come to congratulate you…
J & rsquo; took a few minutes to immortalize myself the room of the Town Hall with my instax, and was spun out to be sprayed soap bubbles.
We made a little wait with Vianney to join the guests in our famous lil wood. We don & rsquo; were not far, Hidden in the forest with Marianne in a pose between the sheets, and we heard the joyful music (great playlist concocted by my sister, dispo sur unbeaujour) and the laughter of the guests off.
But the & rsquo; impatience everybody is felt, Virginie, the shock of my marriage Manager D-day, Vianney therefore calls for us to make our entry.
I think c & rsquo; is by far my best memory. After passing under the & rsquo; balloon arch that gave the place the look of d & rsquo park attraction, the table of our guests all smiles, grouped together on the dance floor under the ivy and lanterns for us throwing rose petals paper was the most moving. I read the joy in their eyes, I was very moved (but that the you & rsquo; ve seen, about Baptiste the beautiful video – parodiée here in P&P ce week-end).
Everyone has his little ball hanging on the arm for a shot that n & rsquo; has never happened because nobody wanted s & rsquo; separate… Me first !
The guests had discovered with great curiosity kindling we were talking about them for months, people strafing anything goes, we don & rsquo; was very proud !
We who had taken so long to arrange everything : the corner for tea and cocktail to serve as a “Hall” in the evening to dance, small lounges installed here and there to s & rsquo; sit among the trees, the tent area for dinner. There was also a small campsite for those who were still sleeping on site (whose married yes yes) and everyone loved the decor : a great giant mirror bought at Emmaus.
The taste starts to be served : Maria Chemor the my super catering shock with which j & rsquo; spent months imagining appetizers and funny dishes to surprise my guests did a nice job. A waiter passes among invite distribute packages of candy and popcorn as in a cinema.
There are cherries d & rsquo; love, sweets of all kinds, marshmallows, amazing floral waters : captivating the lotion & rsquo; rose water and flower elixir d & rsquo; orange beard neatly arranged on our stand at Dad… Everyone s & rsquo; marvel, dance a little, humming to the music of Peter Pan, je suis super happy :)
Mais il y a un hic… Some men & rsquo s shirtsleeves, working around power generators : l & rsquo; a d & rsquo; is not working and making test they lost the second candle in its metal casing. More generator = no cotton candy, no light, no music, no party. It makes me believe that & rsquo; one of them is in the harbor and all is well, but I feel that c & rsquo; is stretched.
I then decide to cross fingers and hard not to think about it. On the intimate & rsquo; order now my husband d & rsquo; go photos with family and friends in our photobooth with me and not to s & rsquo; address these pb d & rsquo; electricity. And it has relaxed us (these are the only pictures “asked” marriage which acted as group shots).
And… And then c & rsquo; s all for aujourd & rsquo; hui ! Until tomorrow !
The dinner, c & rsquo; is when I finally got a little put. I don & rsquo; have almost no memories of snack and cocktail so I papillonnais. When the couple say that & rsquo; they see nothing on D c & rsquo; is true !
There are so many people that & rsquo; we love, that & rsquo; one would like to spend time with each, then passes 5 minutes with & rsquo; a, then is caught by another, and in the end it is hard to focus upon a specific time. Memories are almost nonexistent c & rsquo; is very frustrating !
Then dinner c & rsquo; was time to lay back and enjoy witnesses, des amis, and move from table to table in the lovely bride.
J & rsquo; had worked the staging tables : striped sets, mismatched plates bought at Emmaus, pretty straws in the glass, the names on butterflies hanging on glasses, few potted flowers (in pretty bombonnières bought at Emmaus), and casseroles (which you will find pdf to print on unbeaujour).
We had also bought the chairs at Emmaus, neighbors of my grandparents had also loaned us, and benches. For tables had simple traiteaux + boards covered with white sheets family. Simple but effective !
And I & rsquo; I forgot that little detail yesterday : I was given the names ptits our guests for that & rsquo; they find their table all alone. Arriving in the woods lil they received a badge with a name : Tinkerbell, Dr Olive, Dorothy, The White Rabbit…etc.
Each table had a theme so, s it & rsquo; was booked Alice in Wonderland for wedding table (Needless to say that was Alice…) and our principal witness took his role very seriously mad hatter by making a headgear is crazy hats with others. C & rsquo; s funny because it is these small details that some guests liked most.
As for the cocktail, we had imagined funny and amazing stuff with Marie. I wanted something cool, we had opted for a barbecue (handy to cook in the woods) and also had imagined owls names of dishes :
Club sandwich de la fôret
Nemo in trouble
L & rsquo; incarnate hell
It's fun everyone this buffet ! And the barbecue c & rsquo; is taken headless (even if Mary had done that in any delicacy).
And then the night is slowly fell on the little wood, he was beginning to feel like a feast of odor, the boys were on their way and scolded the cake, eager to get out of his refrigerated truck to impress everyone… To be continued
