- Wedding: November 1999
I can’t believe it…we’re married! After a year of planning and lots of nerves about how everything would come together everything was just perfect. I know it’s so cliche and everyone says how magical it is…but it really was!
I know some of my recently married friends have told me they didn’t feel like they had a chance to enjoy their wedding day, but honestly–we danced and partied all night long 🙂 It was a blast! Everyone definitely enjoyed the open bar and live band. A few friends have told me it’s the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to, which was the greatest compliment they could have given. We definitely were aiming to throw a party!
I can’t wait to get the pro pics back to see everything….I’ll have to do a full recap then, but for now, I wanted to share a few (okay, several) of my favorite guest photos from this weekend:
This was right before the veiling ceremony, when I was seeing my Darling Husband for the first time. I love how all of my bridesmaids are standing behind me…we were all so excited!
Walking down the aisle with my parents…it looks a little empty in there because the sanctuary seats 700 and we had 125 guests!
Getting married! We used the same chuppah cover my parents got married under 35 years ago.
I had to walk 7 circles around Darling Husband…it was not easy with my train!
And we’re married! Our entrance to the reception…I love the way the room looks! It’s a little embarrassing, but after photos while guests were at cocktail hour, I went into the reception room by myself to take it all in. It was so exciting to see my vision come to life…everything looked AMAZING! And uplighting was the best investment ever–all of our pictures look gorgeous.
Our first dance.
Woo hoo! We’re married!
DH and I with one of my bridesmaids. I have to give serious props to my hair and makeup person, too. This was a super long day, but my hair and makeup still looked great hours later.
With my best friends from summer camp…it was so much fun to see everyone!
Cutting our beautiful cake!
I can’t wait until we get all of the pro pics so I can see all of the hilarious pictures from the dancing. Our band was SO much fun and the dance floor was packed all night! Our photographer promised our photos in 2 weeks…so excited to see all of them!
