I was a long time wedding bee poster under another user name about a year ago but fell off the earth as I got closer to the wedding. Started a new account since I am now a married woman 🙂
Now, I just wanted to post a little about my wedding until I get my pro pics back. The hive was so helpful with food, music, decor and attire decisions. So thanks to all the bees who helped!
My wedding took place Friday May 23rd at Chief Hosa Lodge. It was intimate – only about 36 people. We focused our funds on the food, venue and photographer. My husband and I decided to get ready together and skipped the wedding party since we only invited a handful of close friends. The ceremony was outdoors followed by cocktail hour (which we enjoyed since we did pictures before the ceremony) and then a large family-style dinner. During dinner, we had a live reggae/steel drum duo dand DIYed all of the other music. I had such a blast. The day was filled with so much love and joy. I will be doing a separate “Lessons I Learned” post for future brides.
So here are some guest photos – should be another month till I have professional ones!
Our “flower” girl.
