I was going to wait until I got my photographers pictures bach but they are taking too long. So, I will just have to use both the flattering and unflattering pictures my dear Maid/Matron of Honor took. Besides, some of these my photographer wasn’t there to get anyway!
The day started off pretty relaxed. Woke up at around 7. I am NOT a morning person but I was wide away and ready to go. We had stayed in a hotel the night before (me and my girls) and had spent the evening relaxing in the hot tub and just hanging out. Well, in said hotel was a Starbucks. In said Starbucks was the kick everybody else needed too. Especially since we had our rehearsal at 9 am. (If you can avoid a day-of rehearsal, DO! I wish we hadn’t done it that way because I missed out on a lot that happened because Mr. Hedgie and I didn’t want to see eachother.) After that the guys stayed at the venue to hang out and get ready and us girls headed back to the hotel to do our stuff. Half an hour later my planner started setting up the suite we were going to be getting ready and having breakfast in. (Suite? Sweet!) Mamosa’s, fruit, croissants, cheeses and meats. Yum. Of course I just relaxed while my girls started doing their hair and make-up. They refused to let me help with anything and to be honest, the nerves were starting to get to me and it was probably for the best. So what did I do? Well, watched wedding shows on TLC of course! Around 12 my hair and make-up lady got there and so did my photographers. Yay! They started getting pictures of my girls getting ready (my photographer Maid/Matron of Honor was slightly busy getting ready herself so she couldn’t get any pictures of that.) and details like hairclips and shoes and of course, the rings. My mom was able to join us a little before they got there so she could enjoy getting ready with me. It took about an hour and a half to get all my hair and make-up done. One photographer left about halfway through so he could go get pictures of Mr. Hedgie getting ready. After hair and make-up was all done? Off to the venue to get dressed and marryfied!
And now for the good pictures and not so good pictures. (I look not so good first thing in the morning) Also, somehow these got out of order when I uploaded them. Weird.
My Maid/Matron of Honor goofing around before the rehearsal dinner. She was a dinosur I think? Or Gaga (who didn’t show to the wedding BTW)
The Robes! I DIY’d theirs w/ their names.
The hair-flowers my Maid/Matron of Honor made for us. They are a billlion times prettier in person too! She is so tallented.
Yeah… one of those “not so good” pictures. But it is an important one. On my right ear is the hotel who was corrdinating our ride to the venue, on my left ear is my planner. They both were talking at the same time and I was communicating between them. How it all worked out? Not sure. But it sure was funny!
My sister and other Bridesmaid or Best Man chilling before the rehearsal.
My other sister before the rehearsal. She is a photographer too but somehow I don’t have any of her pictures. Hmm…. And believe it or not, she and the girl in the background of the picture above? Twins. And no dyed hair here (well, except for the blue)
My BIL and Fg at the rehearsal. So cute!
Mr. Hedgie, not quite awake yet and a good friend of ours. He was my stand in groom for the rehearsal and the reader at the wedding.
The girls and my dad waiting to walk through the wedding ceremony! I managed to hide from this picture which was a good thing. (Think “picture with 2 phones”… bad) And I promise they are wearing clothes under those robes!!!
I can’t wait to actually get the pro pics back! But until then, these will do. Up next? Pre-wedding pictures with my girls!!!
