Go Ahead!

Standing in line hasn't always been something I was too fond of. Knowing it was almost my turn gave me butterflies in my stomach like you couldn't even imagine. So many emotions were racing through my head, I was nervous, afraid, anxious, and shy. Looking around seeing candles lit, emotions running, and cameras flashing intensified the scenery.

As I was standing there, waiting, things suddenly became very quiet. No one made a noise. Then, suddenly, the music was cued and people had their full attention on the back of the room. Every moment passing by from this point on meant that the next group of people in front of my had already went!

Seconds have passed and it was almost my turn. My heart was beating like fishes gills beat when they are placed in a cup of cold water. Suddenly, my cousin in front of me went, which meant Josh and I were next to walk. Just seeing Tori walk with her escort down the isle made me forget everything we had practiced just last night. I forgot when we were to go, was I suppose to wait until the lady cued us or were we just suppose to know? These ten seconds truly were the longest ten seconds of my life. I can't even tell you the thousands of thoughts that went through my head. My head was spinning and heart was racing. I opened my eyes and finally, the lady said go ahead and smiled! We walked down with no problems occurring. As soon as we got to the end of the isle and split off I took the biggest breath I've ever taken and thought to myself:

"It was finally over and I can't even begin to imagine how I'm going to do at my own wedding, let alone being in my cousin's wedding."


  1. trust me it comes almost naturally.... I had never been to a wedding before mine, and ours seem to work flawlessly, like it was rehearsed. You'll be alright, and that should be the last worry of your big day!

  2. If you can remember these details about your own wedding you'll be one of the lucky ones! It is such a blur to me.

  3. Cute story Katelynn. Did everything go smoothly?
