Hey there everyone.
Just wanted to say that we are back and we are married. Got married on the 19th, went to Sandals Grand Ocho Rios for our Honeymoon and I can’t say enough good things about the place.
There were a few kerfluffels. Our hair appt. ran late, which made everything run late, missed out on some of the photos we wanted to do, the cake lady dropped our cake. The top three tiers sort of survived, so the cake looked pretty pathetic… it was hot and humid, not everyone was dancing, but it was lovely, and we are soo happy to be married.
Hope all my other date twins, and the couples around my date had a beautiful time. I am going searching for all your stories now. I’ll post some pictures when we get them!
ps. If you are in the cleveland area, look up Lauren Clifford Photography. They are new to the business & I can not say enough good things about them!

Yay! I’m so glad that you guys had a great time! We did too. It was amazing! Like you, thinks weren’t exactly perfect but overall it was the best day ever (so far).
The things I could of done without- my Maid/Matron of Honor decided to alter her dress so it was super short, but wouldn’t cop to it (she said her just has an ‘abnormally long torso’). She has a tendency to not wear her appropriate size so I don’t know why I thought this would be different. My other bridesmaid’s breast was leaking (she’s breatfeeding) while going down the aisle. Also, one of the groomsmen was drunk even before the ceremony. So he made picture taking go longer than planned, the photographer even had to yell at him. Then he kept coming up to me apologizing and hugging me so tight and messing up my hair… I really was about to punch him. And, my Aunt was a pain in my ass. My Mother and I are currently not speaking to her because she’s insane.
But all the vendors showed up on time, did what they had to do. Everyone had a good time so I’m more than happy we did it all. And I am also so thrilled I never have to do it again!
Welcome back Ella!!

Sudslover.. my sister keeps saying the same thing, but I think I’ll always feel a little sting that I don’t have a beautiful cake photo! But of all things to really REALLY go wrong, I suppose its one of the smaller things!
Jennifer! Congrats to you too! Hope everything was lovely. Hysterical about the ill fitting bridesmaid 🙂 my tallest bridesmaid decided to make her dress a little shorter too.. but not hoochie short!
Thanks to all! We had a great time. One thing I didn’t realize, it’s really hard to sit back in the limo with a dress that has a lot of boning…ha! Glad to be back!

jaylii9, sorry i missed your post!
Lauren is amazing. Def. check her out.
It was just recently I noticed that you were commenting on the Cleveland posts too! Glad to have another CLE girl here.
Sept. will be beautiful. We had a church wedding, and it was about 90 degrees of stale hot air in that church, felt SOO bad for the guys in three piece tuxes!
Hope all your planning is going well. I know someone else in town with your date! I hope you guys have beautiful weather!
