My Wedding: The Happiest Day of My Life
The 21st of September, 2013 was a day that will stay in my heart for the rest of my life. I finally got to marry my best friend, Mr. Sean Patrick Simpson and we had the best time ever surrounded by friends and family present to celebrate our union. We got married at a place called The Rumor Boutique Hotel in Las Vegas. The decor was pink, I got ready in a pink room called ‘The Diva Suite’, the food was Vegan, the weather was perfect and the energy was outstandingly fun and vibrant. What’s also interesting to note is that when I created my vision board a few months ago I wanted a specific floral bouquet for the wedding which I couldn’t have because peonies aren’t in season in America right now. However, a happy accident occurred because the flowers that turned up on my wedding day were exactly the same as on my vision board and were not what I ordered. Love it when things like this manifest.
The night before the wedding was full of amazing surprises too. We had the rehearsal dinner, followed by a ‘meet and greet’ with the other guests, a beautiful performance by our dear friend and very talented John Stringer and then we went out to the strip in Vegas in a stretch Hummer! (Special thanks to my wonderful bridesmaid Bron). However while taking a walk, my Dad had a bad fall and couldn’t walk properly. We didn’t know if he’d be okay to walk me down the aisle since he’s been having some health issues recently. I just remember Sean and I holding my Dad’s feet giving him an energetic healing. My Mum was there too and I have never been more in love with my parents than during our stay in Vegas. The love and support they showed me was phenomenal and I have never so proud to be a Prout. Long story short, Dad had a good night sleep and was okay the next day to give me away. We were so relieved! However…
I received my dress back from the dry-cleaning concierge and the zipper was entirely broken! My Dad and my beautiful Lady of Honor (Dallyce) spent over an hour sewing me into my dress! Everything was perfect! Even, (and especially) the seeming imperfections were fabulous additions to the overall experience.
Here are some of the first photos that have been released from our amazing photographer (Steven Joseph Photography) – there will be more to come! And our official wedding video will be available in the near future too. We had the pleasure of working with videographer Lightfield Lewis who got an up-close snap shot of our blissful and eccentric time during and leading up to the wedding. I’m pretty sure the footage he captured is going to be awesome. I can’t wait to share it.
