Travis masterfully captured our emotions leading up to the big moment. I was so anxious it was difficult to smile. I had a meltdown getting my hair done (thankfully my only one), decided to just wear it down (so glad I did), and I hadn't seen my mom for hours because she was preoccupied with the cake. There are plenty of beautiful photos of ugly expressions that I'm not brave enough to share. Later on, the smiles came easily.
