I was going to do a recap in one swoop (post) but that’s not going to work, so I am going to separate it into sections (posts).
The day started VERY early at 4:30am wake up and be ready for hair and makeup by 5:30am to get started. Luckily my soon to be husband then made a Starbucks run before they had to get ready. That and I’m a former Marine, so I’ve been up earlier ;op.
P.S. It also just so happened to be the HOTTEST day on record for Long Beach, CA that day too :(. Not so good for what were my perfect curls. Needless to say, my curls fell by mid-reception eventhough the reception was indoors. Ceremony was outside.
Here’s where the most amazing day started….
My bridal gift robe from my soon to be hubby at the time.
My grooms gift to my new husband….a Swarovski crystal duck with a mohawk. Now mind you, he is a Marine and when we walked into the Swarovski store, his jaw about dropped when we first saw this and he said, “How cool!!!!!! A duck with a red mohawk!!!” He doesn’t have a thing for ducks either but thought it was so cool that a duck had a mohawk and a nose ring lol.
