EVERYTHING I EXPECTED AND MORE....

These are indeed my very own pictures of the wedding. Taking the pictures made me feel like I was there. I watched it live on BBC and I enjoyed each moment.

I was up all night which means I was awake for almost 24 hours. I just couldn't sleep. Hopefully I will get a nap in soon. I did get some sleep from 5:30am until 8:30am but I am now glued to the TV again. After their luncheon William and Catherine came out in a convertible that he was driving. They were going over to change their clothes for their party this evening.

I must say I was so into the hats that everyone was wearing. (well Fergie's daughters hats were a bit weird) I kind of feel like I may just have to get myself a little fluffy hat when I'm in London. Hopefully that desire will pass with time. I still want a replica of the engagement ring. I've been wanting one ever since Diana received hers.

I just finished watching it on the DVR. Fabulous! They really look happy. Beautiful shots of the Abbey and the hats were too much!

I didn't manage to get up in the wee hours of the morning, but I did record it! Those Brits sure know how to celebrate, don't they? Loved her gorgeous dress and the car they drove away in! I know what you mean about those hats...some were downright BIZARRE!

It was absolutely beautiful. I have to watch the beginning parts still on DVR but watched from 6am.

Cherie said...

You stayed up for 24hours - You crazy woman! I loved watching it all - it was magical!

I wish I could enjoy such a spectacle but seeing so many millions of dollars (much-needed for the poor and the sick) being wasted this way... I find it disgraceful.

The UK is in a miserable economic situation and yet a few enjoy the hard-earned money of the many based on some archaic systems set into place eons ago - sigh.

*steps off soapbox*

I love your photos, and agree that the hats are lovely, that the ladies are wearing in London.

Laura said...

Love it!!! I am watching it now! (obviously recaps)! I love the ring... oddly enough it looks JUST like my mom's engagement ring (of course her's isn't quite THAT big). My dad went to the University of Michigan and my mom went to Ohio State (HUGE RIVALS) and he figured the saphire (on a gold band) was the closest he would ever get to having her wear maize and blue! <3 HA HA HA!
Hugs-

Wasn't it wonderful??? Debby, I think you would look cute in one of those feathery fascinators! I wish I were going to Europe so I could get some wedding souvenirs! xoxo

I heard on the news that the fergie girls werent even invited, that they just showed up.

secret agent woman said...

A patient mentioned to me "William and Kate's wedding" and I assumed she was talking about friends or relatives whose names I didn't recognize, so I said "Who are William and Kate?"

Sonya said...

I haven't watched it yet because we've been gone, but I'm excited to see all the moments that everyone is talking about!

Kathy said...

Debby, you should have been one of those fans over there camping out all week! Of course, I think we had the best view of all(on the television)! Love your pics :) and get some rest now that it's over.

ModernMom said...

The hats! I loved to see all of the goofy looking hats. Some of them actually were quite lovely, I have to admit.

The wedding was indeed beautiful. Kate looked wonderful.
