Well, after a year of being on WB planning, I got married on October 30th, 2010. It took 2 months, but I am finally back with some pro-pics! I have not been a terribly active poster since the wedding happened. I am completely and totally burnt out on all things having to do with weddings. Heck, it took a week for me to finally get into sorting through the pictures to post some. Well, here they are.
Our wedding was wonderful and magical and all that jazz. It was everything I could have asked for. We did the whole shebang on $10k, we got Cristal buit only paid for Natty Light.
Day started out with us (my mom, my 2 ladies, me and my flowergirl) getting ready at the salon.
Yes…. the bushy hair in the front is me. lol. Me in my natural state, brushed out.
Noming some Little Ceasars.
Then we headed to the hotel to get dressed!
My mother and I made the girls’ dresses from a modified Vintage Vogue pattern. They were convertible. Score!
My badass stockings!
This is the same penny that my mother wore in her shoe when she married my dad in 1975. Theyve been married almost 36 years. She found it 3 days before the wedding, so I wore it too.
Ready to go! Time for our first look! We were so glad that we did it, although there ended up being WAY too many people in the room and it was not entirely the sweet, personal moment I had hoped for.
Time to get our flowers and head out to take our pictures!

Here are some of the more formal pictures. We have only a few serious ones, since we were cracking up and/or making faces through most of them. 🙂

Haha, this is the last one, I promise. We got back 1200+ photos from the photog!
These are from the reception, photobooth and a montage of our flowergirl and her ridiculous cuteness.
Those bow napkins? Yeah, I tied every single one of those the night before.
Our first dance (and my AWESOME Nacho bustle!!) You cant tell, but DH was singing to me. Awww.
Me and my dad!
And, DHs grandparents during our anniversary dance. They won. They have been married for 68 years.
Toasting with Pop Rocks!
