The morning of our wedding was so hectic! My bridesmaids and I spent the night at my parent’s house the night before and I woke up at 6am ready to start the day. I couldn’t sleep any longer; there was so much to do! The morning of the wedding we set everything up ourselves. Family came over to help, which was such a relief, but I didn’t sit down to relax until I had to get my hair done. You can see it on my face in the pictures: I was stresssssed!
Now don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have wanted my wedding morning any differently. I found out later that David and his guys simply hung out at the hotel, got lunch, and took their time getting ready. If I had time to sit and relax, I think I would’ve gone crazy! As I sat down to have a cup of coffee before all the madness began, I started to tear up at how anxious and excited I was. I walked inside and turned on ESPN to distract myself!
I invited the women in my life over for brunch in the morning. The pastries and other goodies came from A Bakery Creation, a local favorite. My mom and grandma also made some awesome food. I found my makeup artist and hairstylist through a website called Thumbtack. It could’ve gone completely wrong, but Shannon Lajuett of Colour Me Pretty and Krystal Means of Krystal salon Sei Bella were absolutely wonderful! They were professional, traveled to us, and were fun to be around as I was having a moment about getting married in just a few hours.
I will slowly share more photos over the next few weeks. Wedding photos are my favorite — even those of people I’ve never met. Thank you to my wonderful photographer, Rajaa of I Romanticize for all of these wonderful memories!
