- Wedding: June 2017 - Grandover Resort
Hope everyone is having a good 4th of July!!
Can’t believe it has been a month since our wedding day… here is a recap of our day. VERY pic heavy (45 pics)!
I checked the weather the week of and it said sunny all week, except for our wedding day. I was SO nervous. We chose our venue because it has such a beautiful outdoor ceremony space, and I did not want to move the ceremony inside. About two days before our day, it changed to sunny with 0 chance of rain. I was so happy our wedding day was blue skies and just such a beautiful day!!!!
Our theme for our wedding was ‘Simply Beautiful’. I love simplicity with natural beauty, and my husband loves upscale, elegant events. So we had to find a way to mesh our two wedding views. We ended up with a very upscale venue– but I still wanted to keep decor pretty simple, white, clean lines, with a few pops of red because my husband loves the color red– while still using the natural beauty of our venue. It all worked out well, and we both got what we wanted in the end!
We had NO issues, except my hair didn’t hold its curl through out the day. My hair is pin straight, and it was pretty hot out, so I’m not surprised. I just don’t like up-dos on me, so I didn’t have much of a choice. We had to re-curl it 3x before the ceremony, but I LOVED my makeup!
We had a pretty big wedding party, with 21 people in it. All of my bridesmaids came from out of state, and about half of his did. They were all so great and supportive through out the planning, and the wedding weekend. His mother/aunts hosted our rehearsal dinner, and my parents hosted the wedding. It was a weekend full of love, and we are so appreciative of them all.
It was by far the happiest day of our lives…
— Our cupcake flavors is how we included our dogs into our wedding, ‘Coconut Kane’ for coconut, ‘Chocolate Tuxedo’ for chocolate, and ‘Miss Princess’ for strawberry.

I will be posting the wedding highlight video once it comes in!
