Lauren and Nick were married on a very pretty, very warm day in May at the St. Andrews Golf and Country Club in West Chicago, Illinois. They had six bridesmaids and six groomsman and there was always a lot of laughing and joking going on. Everyone was very laid back and fun. I would like to say all was perfect, but as often happens on wedding days, there’s often those unexpected events out of your control you just need to be able to roll with. Lauren had a doozy. The day of the wedding, her Mom woke up feeling as if she had been hit with the worst flu you could imagine. They were even worried she might not be able to make it to the wedding. The day before, she felt perfectly fine and they had a ball at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding she could barely walk. Lauren, along with everyone else, handled it perfectly, though. Relying on her Mom to do a lot of the organizing the day of, her Aunt and bridesmaids quickly stepped up and helped fill in some of the Mother of the Bride duties. Mom was able to make it to the wedding, but needed to use a wheelchair for her processional and the rest of the day.
I know all the details of the day, the dress, the weather, and who and who is not there is so important to couples, but in the end no matter what…. you still get married and it’s one of the happiest memories of your life.
