Our Wedding: The Rehearsal

I thought I would start from the beginning of our wedding day process! I am pretty sure we had the most unique wedding rehearsal ever!! First of all, the Friday night before the wedding was our rehearsal! That day was very crazy!! It ended up storming with a few tornados here that afternoon knocking out the electricity to our church! Which left us in the dark for our rehearsal!! So we had pizza and lemonade in a candle lit dinner haha!! Luckily everything did work out at the rehearsal and by 9:00 that night the lights finally came back on!! After the rehearsal Heath went to his bachelor party and I went home and watched Grand Torrino with my Maid of Honor! While we were watching the movie it came another storm but just as Sarah was about to leave Heath called me and said "Do not come outside whatever you do" I was like ok that is really weird! A few seconds went by and he walked in and said that a power pole had fallen and the line was on top of his truck, Sarah's car, and my brother's truck!! (I promise I'm not making this up) So I ended up having to take Sarah home and not going to bed untill 2 in the morning!! We weren't even sure if they would be able to get their vehicles for the wedding but more about that later! I know it was really crazy and I am pretty sure I will always remember this rehearsal but we did manage to get a few pictures even without the power and in the craziness!! So enjoy...

I can't believe all that crazy stuff happened with the storm! I'm sure it was stressful at the time but now you have a great story to tell!
