I actually woke up around 7:30 or so the morning of the wedding not feeling too nervous, but STARVING from not having much time to eat the night before so I wandered down the hotel to get a coffee and wake up, to 1200 youth group students lined up in front of Starbucks.. or so it seemed. So I grabbed a coffee from the restaurant where I ran into mom who had already been out running errands and grabbing bagels and goodies for us for breakfast. It was a good morning because I went back with mom, ate a bagel with her and just chatted until we carried the dress to my room. At that point I still had not written everyone's cards so I had time to do that and reflect as well as shed tears that flowed pretty much throughout the day. Then at about 10am everything came into full swing!
GOOODDDD Morning! The not super attractive, just woken up look.
Hair starting and card reading from hubs!
Gals getting purdy!
Posing for the camera!
Boys fixing themselves up and some father son wedding day bonding. Love it.
So that was the morning thus far from Erica and Lee and then Meredith and Scott arrived to start documenting from here and I'll allow you to see the magic!
I loved it!! Thanks y'all!
Love these photos with dad after giving him his card.
Mom helping me with the Mikimoto pearl bracelet her mom gave her on her wedding day.
The final touches in the room.
I have to say that whole morning I was very calm. I didn't really know how to feel honestly. It was surreal, I never really thought that this would happen to me, and that our day was finally here. It was a great morning, the day was beautiful and everything went pretty smoothly so I couldn't have been more at peace on the way to meet my future husband for our first look.
And in case you missed it:
Next up, the first look!
