Snapshots :: Going to the Chapel

Oh, you guys. I'm back! I know it was far-fetched to think I might blog on my honeymoon, but then I lost my iPad camera kit and that's the end of that story. So now that I'm back, I thought I'd share some of my favorite candids from our wedding. It'll be a few before I get the official photos back, so consider this a "sneak preview".

I'm a ridiculous bride so I had "Team Bride" t-shirts made up for my bridesmaids. I loved seeing them running all over the complex doing various things in their cutie shirts.

Balloon girls!

Getting ready! My sis and I working on our hair.

Sandra works on getting me hooked in. It was an ordeal considering all you had to do was zip me up.

Step 3: enjoy champagne out of cutie styrofoam cups until it's time to go take pictures. Ugh, I can't wait to show you how adorable the bridesmaids looked. It's too much. You'll die.

Snapped this one at the reception on hubby's (hubby! eee!) phone.

All in all, it was perfect and amazing and most definitely the best night of my life. I'm so anxious to get the photos back so I can show you guys everything.  Thank you all for your best wishes! They were so touching to read.

What I Wore :: Rehearsal Dinner

This blog is so much more than just a collection of what I wore - I feel the where I wore it is almost more important. Yes, I try to tell you guys exactly what I did in everything I put on so that you can get ideas and get inspired - but I'm also creating a personal archive of some major parts of my life. Tonight was one of those nights.

This is the lovely Vera Wang dress I picked for my wedding rehearsal. Clearly, I was going for something a little understated. I love the ruffle flowers and felt like a princess all night long, exactly how I think a bride should feel.

PS - I love that it looks so similar to the bridesmaid dresses from Blair's wedding on Gossip Girl! Vera Wang was the designer for all of the dresses in that scene, but mine's a little more affordable as it's from her David's Bridal collection.

Some of my beautiful bridesmaids! I can't wait to show you what THEY look like in the wedding...too, too fab.

A happy bride.

And here's my handsome groom in Joseph A Banks! He's going to look pretty sharp today too, I can't wait for y'all to see his shoes. He's a pretty stylish dude.

Anyway, I'm so excited to get married today and share the experience with you guys! I know what you're thinking - what kind of bride has time on her wedding day to blog? A crazy one. And one that wakes up at the crack of dawn. Posting will be sporadic from this point on for a week as I will be in Mexico soaking it up, so stick with me :)

Love you all!
