Today is my 3 year anniversary! It should be my 8th year anniversary, but you lose all those years you invested when you were dating as soon as you say I do! Sometimes it makes me feel a little bit jipped! Not gypped, because today while spell checking this, I learned that “gypped” is a racial slur, and I certainly don’t want to offend any gypsies! ;)
3 years is a good place to be for us. One was new, Two was a little complicated, but Three is great! We are happy and so thankful for each other and the blessings we have. I thought I would share a few of my favorite moments from my wedding May 2, 2009.
We got married in Seaside, FL. If you haven’t been there, its dreamy. Its this adorable beach town that is so picture perfect. We decided to make a whole weekend out of it so our guests could really enjoy themselves.
Friday night after the rehearsal dinner we had a dessert and cocktail…emphasis on the cocktail reception for all our guests in Watercolor (next door to Seaside). We wanted it at The Red Bar, but my M.I.L insisted it wasn’t as classy…Gee wonder why?
Yep! Bride on a Bar! That’s how I roll!
Because Tequila shots the night before your wedding are always a good idea!!
All the girls got ready at our beach house. My very favorite place to be!
My sweet little princess, Dolce.
This was not a joke! I literally was lifting weights (3lbs, you can barely call them weights) moments before I got dressed. Addicted to this routine from Pilates!
Dance party before…DUH! Had to break it down to “Lose your Love” my fav 80’s song!
The Chapel looked breathtaking.
Me = Happiest Girl in the World. My Sweet Daddy = Losing is baby girl! :(
The Mr. & Mrs..
Our lil boy Grayton made an appearance.
Being a MOH was hard work! Thanks Em!
The decor was amazing. Everything I dreamed of. Pewter gray and shades of pink with lots of bling! Cherry Blossoms and Peonies. Crystal chandelier in the beautiful tent. And dancing under the stars with cafe lights strung above. We had “His” and “Hers” lounges for people to hang out in on each side of the dance floor. Mine was shabby chic and very girly, and his was a cigar lounge.
Time to PARTY!!
Very fitting, the Best Men wore lightning bolt patches.
Our first dance! I think we were counting our steps the whole time. Slow…Quick Quick….Slow….
Each person’s place card was a mini bottle of Moet with a special label with our monogram and read: “Champagne wishes from the Mr. & Mrs.” and the hang tag had their table assignment.
Breaking it down to “My Girl” with my daddy. He’s got some serious moves!
It was a magical day, I will never forget.
And They Lived….
Happily Ever After!
