Our eventful wedding night...

I hope you didn't run away immediately when you saw this title. It's nothing like you think.

I should start by saying that our wedding was perfect. While I did stress over some of the details leading up to the big day, everything came together exactly how I wanted it. But some things, you just can't control...

We said our vows. We danced. We ate. We laughed. Then, I started to feel it. A headache. The kind that is closely followed by a migraine.

It was already late in the evening, so I told our amazing wedding coordinator we were ready to go. I pasted a huge smile on my face and we drove away into the night. None of our guests or wedding party even knew I was sick until we returned from the honeymoon.

We had about a 25 minute drive from the Ranch where we married to the cabin we stayed in. About halfway there, driving down a cute country road, I told the husband:

Pull over NOW!

Thankfully the husband listened and reacted quickly, so I was able to open the door, rearrange my dress, and puke. I then requested that he husband undo the back of my dress and corset, as they were not helping the situation at all.

We stopped a couple more times on the way to the cabin, but made it there without any damage to the dress. That was my biggest priority. Once there, I ran inside, holding up my still unzipped dress and shut myself in the bathroom for the next hour, before crawling into bed with a horrible headache.

The only reason for this migraine is a lack of sleep. There were a couple cats outside my bedroom window the night before, having a good time, if ya know what I mean... I'm just glad the exhaustion didn't hit me until late in the evening and also that it didn't happen on our actual honeymoon.


But I can only imagine what the innkeepers must have thought, seeing me run into the cabin, holding my dress up along the way.
