First Comes Love...Then Comes Marriage: The Ceremony

I was told it was hard to round up good pictures from your wedding and well that is very true.  But here are a few that I could scrounge up.  With my wedding, I can say I was probably 95% happy with everything and 100% happy with my look.  There is an issue of missing corsages that never got to the moms & grandmother.

The morning of my wedding I got my brakes changed....LOL.  I couldn't sleep I was up at 6am and everyone else was sleep.  The brake place opened at 7am and they finished my 9am, so everyone was up when I got home.  My maid of honor texted me, who gets their brakes changed on their wedding day?  It was almost like some alone time for me before all the chaos began.

These are all my nieces and nephews from 2 of my siblings.  They really stole the show...they were just too cute.  The girl's dresses came from Ebay (new) at $14.99 a piece.  The boy's suites were from Dapperlads.com at $30 a piece.

The one thing I didn't realize is that my bow and my bouquet would be competing for space...LOL.  I should have moved the bow to the other side of me.

Flowers:  FlowerGarden

I will do a post on the reception.  With cake from Romanos Bakery, music from DJ AV, and the wedding venue was Ashton Gardens (with locations also in Houston & Atlanta).  Everything did turn out beautifully and  we each got the memories we wanted for that day.  Everyone asks if you feel different being married and I honestly didn't think I would, but I do.  The name change and forever concept is a real life changer, but I am truly excited to get to grow old with my life partner.

  2. Congratulations and many happy returns!

    You look stunning. I generally dislike wedding dresses, but yours is so classic, especially love the black sash. Your nephews and nieces are adorable. Kids in formal wear are so cute.

    Also, your hair is just amazing. :) xx
