Our wedding day was magical. There are so many aspects of it that I have already forgotten (so thankful for amazing pictures and a beautiful video). I’m so excited to finally be able to share our wedding day with you, in much more detail than I have before. So here we go.
Since Jeremy and I are very non-traditional, we actually stayed together the night before the wedding (GASP!). I know. But it didn’t make sense for Jeremy to book a hotel room for himself for 1 day, nor could we have done that anyways, so it made sense. So, we woke up together and even had breakfast together. Then, it was time to hang out with my ladies and get our hair done.

Hanging my dress up right when I got in the room was a must! Lace dresses need time to breathe and air out before you put them on, so put that sucker on a hanger and admire it all day long! Getting ready for our wedding day was so much fun. I had lovely ladies all around me, and I got to get pampered before the craziness began.
Before I knew it, it was time to start getting accessories on and get that dress on.
I love that my mom zipped me into my dress. It’s such a cool moment that we have together and I love her to death!
I love my dress. I still do, but if there is any advice I can give to brides who wear sleeves, make sure that you have plenty of fashion tape. You will use it. Just take my word for it. I sweated so much at the reception, that the tape became pretty much useless…so I had to put more on all the time. Oh, and don’t let me mention about having to pee.
This lovely bridesmaid above actually did my makeup for me on wedding day. She did a fabulous job. You will see more of her amazing decor work in later posts (she did all of our signage).
This picture is so special to me because during alterations, the ladies who were in charge of my alterations used the lace from my moms dress to cover the bustle buttons. You can tell which part is from my mom’s dress because her dress and veil were stark white. My dress was ivory. But, honestly, I didn’t care. It was something special that I was able to use on wedding day that it didn’t matter.
The lace from my moms dress and her veil matched the lace on my dress, so it was a pretty seamless addition, minus the color difference.
On deck next week…my first look with my dad. Someone very special to me made a surprise appearance too!
