- Wedding: July 2011
Ok, so in this post I tried to upload pictures from our wedding on Saturday on my phone, but that wasn’t working! So I’m back (on a computer, lol) with pictures from my wedding!
We were originally planning on heading to the courthouse, but DH’s (hehe – he’s my dear husband now) family wasn’t having that, so they started planning last Wednesday for our Saturday wedding!
Luckily, one of his aunt’s owns a cake bakery, so she did our cake. Another aunt put together some finger foods. Another aunt is really active in her church and was able to find a pastor. We had the ceremony/mini reception at yet another aunt’s house and they all helped with the flowers.
We went to David’s Bridal on Thursday and got my dress (style WG3165) and birdcage veil and I made the fascinator using tulle from Michael’s and a shower curtain (yes – a shower curtain – I wanted some satin and/or silk but couldn’t find any in Michael’s and happened to find a perfect shower curtain) that was on clearance at Stein Mart lol. DH helped me find my perfect purple shoes at DSW on Friday which were also on Clearance! I did my hair and make-up and also bedazzled a collar for my precious dog, Gabby.
All in all, it was seriously perfect! The aunt and uncle who let us hold the celebration at their house also gave us a hotel room for the night in downtown Charlotte for our mini-moon! Enough talk, though, time for some pictures! These pictures were taken by one of the aunt’s, DH’s uncle has a professional-grade camera and took a ton of pictures but we don’t have those yet.
Before I walked down the stairs to our ceremony:

Flipping my e-ring and band around so the band is behind the e-ring:
DH’s uncle was up on the balcony taking pictures of me:
More of me, lol:
Me with 2 of DH’s cousins (they didn’t want to have shoes on anymore so they yelled at me to take mine off so I didn’t tower over them, lol):
Us with my baby, Gabby: (this is my favorite picture)
On of DH’s aunts had to have a picture of our hands over the bible – I’m not a super religious person but I still appreciate it:
Our cake table (that cake was flipping delicious…mmmmmmm buttercream):
Cutting the cake:
Our grand exit, complete with bubble blowing:
I honestly don’t think I’ve smiled that big for that long ever in my life! It was perfect!
Don’t worry, I’ll be back with our more professional (though not technically professional lol) pictures once I get them!!!
