This weekend I had the honor to spend the whole day with my bride, something I rarely ever do. Usually I do something I like to call "Paint and go"but this saturday, my bride hired me to spend all day with her and I don't even know where to start on how much fun it was for me! FIRST, let me start off by saying this was the most organized bride I have ever come across! I guess it helps that she use to be a planner for the big mouse himself! (Disney! lol) A week before the wedding she emailed me the day's schedule, and I have to admit we were as close to keeping on that schedule as possible!
My day started at 7:00 am when I made my daily drive into Queen's Harbour (where my parent's live and I grew up) to have my morning coffee with my mom like usual. The great thing about this particular day is that my bride was getting ready in Queen's Harbour too! I got to really enjoy my coffee in the morning, and stroll over to my beautiful bride's parent's house! She was there to greet me at the door, and that was the beginning of an amazing day!
As I was doing the beautiful bride Kimberly Imbach's makeup, one by one her family began to wake up! Coffe was being poured around the house and it seemed like there was a never ending chain of heads popping out of rooms as they woke up! It was a big family like mine!! I loved it! Mr. and Mrs. Imbach would check in on Kim and joke around with her, her two sisters were there as excited as if it were their own wedding day, the groom's sisters and mom were there sharing in the beautification festivities and even Aunt Cathy came out to get her makeup done! What a colorful fun group! Everyone so different.....yet everyone so loving and excited to be their for Kim on her special day! I think I did about 11 people, 2 flower girls, and 2 tattoo cover ups!!! We were beautifying all day!!!
We went from the house, to later taking pictures (in which the whole family didnt want to miss out!!! It was so cute!) than finally to the church! I was "backstage" helping the Imbachs get ready up until it was time for Kim to walk down the aisle. I helped fix her train for her, and I couldn't help but think Oh my gosh! She looks like a Princess! As I watched her wait for her bridal party to finish marching down the aisle, i realized I wish I got to stick around for this part at every wedding. The look on Kim's face of nervousness and excitement.....of hopes and dreams!! It's the expression of pure love!! I wanted to yell "Kim you have no idea how MUCH your life will change!!! This is the beginning of something so magical! This is the beginning of YOUR family that God is bringing together! YOU and MICHAEL as ONE!" It reminded me of my very feelings on my wedding day. How nervous I was. How excited and how full of love I was. It made me realize that now 3 years later, I Love my husband more and more each day, and I was experiencing the magic happen for my bride right before my eyes, and it was just so beautiful. I'm so happy and blessed to have been able to share such a beautiful event!! I can't wait to see the pictures captured by the talented Corrina Hoffman!!! Lucky for us, both Corinna and I get to do it all over again in September for Kim's little sister Katie!!! Imbach's we will see you really soon!! Until than, keep Sparkling!!!! xoxoxo
