In Which Your Curiosity About a Certain Wedding is Satisfied

They make such a sweet pair. *sighs happily*
Yup. My sister is in fact married now. HUGE SURPRISE. (<- sarcasm there people) Now to answer the FAQ.

How are you doing?
Great. Really. I think Sarah is very happy. (It's sometimes hard to tell, she is an INTJ) And Jesse is an awesome brother-in-law. He loves God, has a sense of humor, and is handsome. They make a great couple. I'm super excited for them, and happy for Sarah and Jesse both. My sister picked a great guy, and Jesse found a wonderful girl to fall in love with. :) *contented sigh* I look forward to their future together. ;) 

Do I feel like I've lost a sister? Or gained a brother?
Well, a little of both. Because they're moving away to Georgia *distant sobbing* I feel like I gained a brother, then lost both of them right after the honeymoon. BUT THEY WILL RETURN. Thankfully, Jesse is a physical therapist, so he'll be able to find a job in our area really easily. The only reason they're staying in Georgia right now is that fact that he needs some experience for future jobs and this job provided him exactly that.

How long are they going to be in Georgia?
A few years for sure... But I have every expectation that they will be moving up here shortly after that. :)

Did you cry at all during the wedding?
NO. Ha! I think I was too excited about the marriage itself to feel sad about her leaving us. Even so, I still haven't cried about her leaving. I'm sad, obviously, but I don't express my sadness in tears.

What was your favorite part about the wedding?
Seeing my sister get married. :) Also, a sweet older lady in our church fed us delicious things before the wedding ceremony (like CHOCOLATE. *happy dance* Seriously, people, that should be a wedding tradition: feed the wedding party chocolate) and I got to have my hair done professionally. That was fun. Plus, you know, all the social stuff makes me happy. ^_^ Friends and family from all over came up and across the state and from other states to see the ceremony.

Least favorite part?
Well, there wasn't really any least favorite part. I loved it all. Although, the pictures were a little painful on the feet and very hot. Which made for glorious photos, but very uncomfortable for the people having to stand still and smile for hours at a time. Also, I sang a song during the ceremony with my dear friend Kathryn S. But that was more nerve-wracking than anything.


What's it like having a sister married now?
AWESOME. I'm so happy and excited!!!! It is SO MUCH FUN having a sister married. Weird, yes. I mean, a third of my room disappeared into suitcases and flew off to a distant state. Sarah is no longer going to be around the house reading or giving sage advice about which books she would recommend and editing my stories or blog posts. We'll face time and text and e-mail (Thanks to the advantages of our advanced tech these days) but...it's not the same.

Is it hard?
Not yet. I say that because it takes awhile for things to sink in for me. My older brother left to take seminary classes in Wisconsin, and it took about four months for it to really hit me that he was gone. But it's not like she died or anything. They'll visit us, we'll visit them. I think its harder for my older sister Margaret. She and Sarah were really close. Both of them were best friends forever, sharing everything from a bedroom to clothes to wordless, expressive communication. (Seriously, if you were deaf, you could get a lot out of dad's sermons by just watching their faces) Now, Sarah's best friend is Jesse.

WHERE ARE THE PICTURES YOU PROMISED US????
Whoa, no shouting necessary guys! Sheesh. I have a VERY GOOD excuse. The photographer hasn't given us the CD with all the pictures on them. Sometime soon I'll give you a whole post, just on the wedding pictures, to satisfy all your cravings for wedding pictures. There may even be a few video clips. Yep, I'm that nice. ;P



There you have it. Part one of wedding posts. ;) Part two will come as soon as we get pictures back from the photographer. I PROMISE.

  2. Aww, it sounds like it was so awesome and amazing and all that!! So happy for Sarah and Jesse!
    And that' so cool you were able to sing at their wedding!! :)
    Wow, I can't imagine having an older sibling moving to some distant state. But yes, technology is the best! It makes me wonder how people were able to do it back when they traveled by stage and there was a good chance you'd never see your family again. That would be so hard!
    Mom showed me some of the pictures that were on FB, so . . . I'm not shouting quite yet. ;) But I want to see moreeeeee!!!

    1. It's the photographer that needs to be begged. ;) If I had pictures I would give them to you lovely people in a heartbeat. :P

      Oh, it was! ;) They're currently in Macon. OOOHHHH, that's good to know! Maybe if I visit them at some point I can make it to your house too! ^_^

  9. AHHH THEY'RE SUCH A CUTE COUPLE!!! Congratulations to them! My sister has been going to a local college for the past two years, but next year she'll be going out of state. So then I'll be the only kid left at home. D: Ah well. I'm sure I'll adjust after a while.

    EEP, I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE PICTURES! I just love weddings! They make me so happy. ^_^

    1. AREN'T THEY???? :D It's so weird not having her around all the time. But I think I'll get used to it...eventually. It's not like she's DEAD. We do TALK to her still. (Thanks to Skype, Facetime, and texting...I mean calling. On the phone.)

      Oh, me too. :) Soon...SOON I promise. ;)

  12. Sure! The first one was "Find a Way to You" as sung by Ryland Angel, and the second was "When God Made You" as sung by NewSong. You're welcome! :) I'm so glad you were able to make it to the wedding! It meant a lot to Sarah. ^_^
