- Wedding: May 2012
It was so wonderful to receive these pro pics and relive our big day. Our wedding was Victorian-themed (colors: burgundy, champagne) and was held in a Meditteranean-style courtyard at the Art Center on the shoreline. It was a hot day, so I was nervous about wearing my heavy dress, but as soon as the ceremony started at 6pm, the winds picked up and the temperature was perfect. We had a lovely night! As with any wedding, we had a few crazy moments: the unity candle wouldn’t light because of the wind; the top layer of the cake started melting and pulling to the side because of the heat/humidity; the aisle was blowing away so they had to tape it down with all they could find (black duct tape); and the napkins that I spent hours folding kept blowing open so my Maid/Matron of Honor put little nuts and bolts in them to weigh them down; and hubby’s mom’s dress was damaged by the sparklers. Despite all of that, it couldn’t have been more perfect. I hope you all enjoy the pics!
The girls and I got to get dressed in one of the museum’s “Dr. Seuss” rooms:
My something old was the lace ring pillow that my parents used at their wedding:
My something new was the jewelry I am wearing that my husband gave me at our rehearsal dinner–shell cameo earrings and an antique spoon bracelet.
My something borrowed was a cameo that a friend of mine lent to me–her dad found it when he was in Europe and gave it to her. I’m wearing it on my bolero in these photos.
My “something blue” was on my bouquet–a brooch from my late grandmother:
Daddy & me 🙂
Our centerpieces 🙂
My bridesmaids took part in the cake pull tradition, each pulling a charm from the cake that symbolized a fortune for them:
Our grand exit–a tunnel of sparklers led us to a carriage drawn by white horses:
We didn’t even know the carriage had a “Just Married” sign on it until we saw photos from our friends later that night! 🙂
