Last night after rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner Just Leafy and I parted ways like tradition dictates. I truly wish we didn't have to keep to that silly routine, but it's what has to be done.
She stayed the night at one of her Bridesmaids' house, while my Best Man and one other Groomsmen stayed at my home. Finally when exhaustion hit we turned in to rest before the big day, only to find that it would take way longer to fall asleep when so much anticipation was in the air.
But sleep did finally come, but this is where we come to part of me waking too early like I mentioned above.
But this crazy cacher had a plan today! What plan was that you ask? Well I'll tell you... Not only was I to get married today and host my own event, but there also happened to be a CITO (Cache In Trash Out) event at 9:30am at Hyacinth Park. And I, that CRAZY cacher that I am intended to be there... And I was!
I showed up at Hyacinth Park looking all dapper in my Tuxedo Print T-Shirt to the dismay of all who were there. But I could not just sign in and leave, this would make me feel bad. So I picked up a couple pieces of trash, had a couple of quick photos and was on my way.
I am sure this created quite the stir, and was the talk of event.
Moving forward I dropped my car off at the B & B we were going to stay at tonight. Got picked up by another of my Groomsmen and headed home to sit through a couple more small panic attacks, and to get ready for the big event. My boys did a fantastic job of seeing me through the anxiety (which was minor), and for ensuring I got to the church with time to spare.
With the time now at hand my wedding party and I stepped out into the church, and away we went. It was like a whirlwind. Everyone staring at me as I waited what seemed like an eternity for the ceremony to begin, waiting, waiting, waiting. I never knew a few minutes could feel so long. And then the music announcing that the bridal party was ready started. I remember seeing all the girls come up and take their places, I also remember seeing Just Leafy being escorted up the isle by her dad and brother. But that was when it all became a blur, and before I knew it the wedding ceremony was done.
After the receiving line and a few quick photos we were on our way to my event "The GO! Team's Wedding Photo Flash Mob - GC4B4K9". A smile played across the faces of both Just Leafy and I when we arrived to see everyone there. So many had dressed up like the suggested theme, and that was awesome to see. We positioned for the group photo, and had a few shots taken, and then Just Leafy tossed a special trackable bouquet that was prepared by the Cache-keteers which was caught by sophiavogt. We moved to the logbook signed and then handed out a special gift to everyone in attendance, which was a special wedding Pathtag designed by me.
With that done we moved on to do our photos, and then the reception. It was probably the busiest and longest day of my life... But it was completely worth it in every way!
A huge thanks to the Cache-keteers for helping run this event while we got married! You ladies made this event way more special and magical than I ever could have.
And thank you to everyone who were in attendance, it meant the world to us that we got a chance to share this amazing day with you!
