After the Ceremony

weather: mostly sunny
outside: 15°C
mood: relieved
We had a big huge receiving line outside, then took family pictures inside the church. It was way too busy outside... I had a list of what group shots I wanted and who was supposed to be when. Some people tried to barge in: "well, we're already here, let us do it first". I had to do the best I can at the gentle, calm "I picked this order for a reason".

This was about the only time I got slightly upset at people all day.

Johnny and Anna (the photographer and his wife) were wonderful. Andy, the video director, and Chris, the camera guy were also infinitely patient with us. I really appreciated everything they did that day.

We went back to W's house for lunch. I couldn't really eat. I was too nervous to be hungry, but I had to have dumpling balls though. I mostly sat in a corner because my train was huge and my gown was heavy, I didn't feel like moving. I practiced my speech a bit. I was being pretty anti-social. The lack of sleep was starting to wear on me by then and I'm glad I didn't eat much. But, I was too afraid to fall asleep.

At about 2:30pm, most of the lunchers had gone home to take a nap, so the house was quiet. We watched "The NBA At 50" for a while. M and M both fell asleep.

At 3:30p, Johnny, Anna, Chris, Andy and Ibrehim joined us again at W's house. We took one or two pictures at his house, then headed off to QE Park. Holy moly, everyone and their little sister were taking wedding photos there. I knew it would be busy. But Johnny said it would be okay.

The "I hate people" feeling came out again as people cluelessly walked in front of, behind and around us. But we took some photos, met up with my parents at the Rose Garden, took more photos, then left. We made our way back to Richmond. The girls were dropped off at Hung Niang for a touch up. The guys went to check in at the Sheraton just down the street.

Re: weddings, post trauma.
Wish mine was loose. It was just under the line of snug.

But we snuck off before I had gotten dressed in THE DRESS, sitting in MCd's overly haired and made up, feasting on big macs, fries, shakes and pies. Yup, the works.

Felt 6 years old doing that.
