A Robot Wedding Part 1: The Ceremony

We got our wedding pictures back so now I can finally do a mini wedding recap. I think I’ll have to split them in parts as there is so much to share!

First off, I would just like to say that boyrobot and I worked really hard on our wedding. Probably more than a normal couple should…but I think everything came together nicely and we think people enjoyed themselves so we’ll chalk it up to a success! I was so glad when the day finally came and it was over. BUT It went SO fast that I felt like I barely had time to enjoy anything. :( Was it the most happiest day of my life? In a way, yes. I was stressing so much the week beforehand that something was going to go wrong or that I would have some kind of family drama that as the day unfolded, and nothing went wrong…I really got to appreciate the day for what it was. There is nothing like seeing friends and family and everyone you love coming together to help you celebrate a marriage. I remember distinctly, right before the reception started, looking around the room…everyone that could… was helping us set up. It was a truly touching moment for me to realize how wonderful the people around us are! Boyrobot and I did not hire a wedding coordinator. We did everything ourselves with the help of our friends and family. It was truly a DIY wedding! And it made me love and appreciate everyone so much. So on that day….of course getting to marry boyrobot would make me a happy girl but truly knowing I have such special family and friends made me the happiest!! So now here are the details…I hope the people who were not able to make it will feel like they were there after reading this :)

Before the ceremony:
Instead of having our first look be when I walk down the aisle…we did it before the ceremony even started. This allowed us to take some fun pictures with the bridal party as well. Here is boyrobot seeing me for the first time :)

Next we took pictures with our bridal party. So many people commented on my bridesmaids and how HOTTT they were. :) I know right? What kind of bride picks such a beautiful group of girls to totally outshine her on her big day??? :) Just kidding….they were the BEST ever!

Then we did a few couple shots:

Now it’s finally time for the ceremony. We had it at the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden. Lucky for us, it was a BEAUTIFUL day…and not too hot! I’m so happy I got to have my ceremony here…it couldn’t have been a more romantic setting!

Music was a very important part for us the whole day. We picked every single song out including the background music. Most of the songs we played were by Vitamin String Quartet, who make amazing string versions of popular songs. Here are the songs we had for the processional:

Parents – Only Time by Enya
Bridal Party – Just Like Heaven by The Cure
Ring Bearer – I’m Yours by Jason Mraz
Bride – Canon in D

You can listen to snippets of these songs at Amazon

This little guy stole the show:

I’m so happy I got to walk down the aisle with my father:
I Love My Dad!!!Dad Walking MeMinh And The Officiant Waiting For Me

The ceremony was pretty short for a buddhist one…which made me happy. The most memorable part of the whole thing was of course our vows. After boyrobot read his, I was so shocked and mad at Mike (one of our closest friends and a groomsman)! haha. You see, a few nights before…we both secretly read our vows to Mike so that he could tell us if our vows were ok. I was worried that boyrobot’s was long and that mine would be too short. I was also worried about how much mine would suck compared to his because he is a much better writer than I am. Well he told us that they were fine.

After hearing boyrobot’s….omg! :P Boyrobot’s was about 5 times longer than mine and 100 times better than mine! I was so scared to read mine after hearing his. The whole time I was thinking….why did I let him go first!!!! hehe But anyways, his vows were really good. Very personal and totally made me teary!

I can’t believe it….We’re finally married!!! :)
