I did know, I didn't know...

I did know that I would be relaxed the day of my wedding.

I didn't know I would need a last minute prayer session with an Amazing Godly Woman just moments before I walked down the isle that would calm me like I would have never believed.

I did know that my decor for outside wasn't quite what I asked for.

I didn't know it blew over several times before the ceremony, therefore, it had to be changed.

I did know that I was going to get lost in my wedding ceremony and my vows.

I didn't know that while I was doing that, one of my bridesmaids was fainting.

I did know that my husband was going to cry during our vows.

I didn't know that people who couldn't see his face were wondering if he was having second thoughts!

I did know that that my 4 inch heels were going to be killing me by the end of the day.

I didn't know that 3 days later, my feet were still going to be killing me.

I did know that my nieces, nephews and I worked hard for 3 months to learn the Thriller dance in its entirety.

I didn't know it was going to knock the wedding out of the park, and be every one's favorite part!

I did know that my wedding cake was going to be gorgeous.

I didn't know that even the people that worked there for 20+ years were going to say that it was the most amazing cake they had ever seen.

I did know I was going to be busy, and not eat too much.

I didn't know Robert and I were going to wake up at 1:30am, starving to death.

I did know I had a patient, amazing photographer.

I didn't know how hard he was going to work to make sure that we will have the most breath taking wedding photos.

I did know that Billy, Dawne and Siobhainin said 'hell or high water', they would be at my wedding.

I didn't know they would hop in a car Thursday night and drive 11 hours to make it here for my big day.

I did know my daughter could bust out 'Respect' by Aretha Franklin.

I didn't know she would have the guts to do it in front of all those people.

I did know I worked hard on my music.

I didn't know so many people would pull me to the side and say how awesome it was, not even knowing I made all of the cd's myself.

I did know I would be so, so happy.

I didn't know my Pastor would announce to everyone that my smile was stretching from ear to ear.

I did know God has his hands All over my wedding day.

I didn't know what I was missing out on not having Him in the center of my life for so long.

I think I have cried more times before, during and after your wedding than anyone elses including my own.

I think because in my heart I always knew how special you were and for so long we prayed that a good man would come along and see all of that and that you would live happily ever after.

I watched Robert's face so intensely that day as he expressed his total emotion of how very much he loves you. It was breath taking.

I watched you as you sang along to the Gospel song and how happy you are to have God and Robert in your life.

I know I am not your sister by blood but I completely feel that you are the baby of our family and that we can all rest easy that you are now exactly where you need to be in Life.

Robert is awesome. He is a great Dad and it is very obvious that you make a great family together.

I have tried to come up with the words to tell you just how happy we all are............but I just can't seem to find them. I will say that God has a plan and we all had a chance to witness that first hand on Saturday.

I am honored that I got to be a bridesmaid and share such a special day with you.

Love you Millions!

I am adding one from Regina:

I did know I would sing along to the Gospel song.

I didn’t know my daughter was petrified that I would throw my hand up.

Your wedding day was so beautiful...you were beautiful. I was SO honored that you asked me to come and pray for you. There is nothing I would've rather been doing right in that moment. Thank you. I'm so happy for you and Robert!
