Kay, here we go with the real photos from the wedding. I think I’ve waited long enough, no?
Our wedding agenda went like this:
Thursday night – Rehearsal Dinner
Friday – the actual Rehearsal + Cocktail party
Saturday – The Big Party
Sunday – Brunch. (Seriously tired. Cannot believe we did brunch. omg, that was one thing too many. I could barely talk on Sunday.)
SO, anyway. We shall commence with the rehearsal dinner. Which was so fun. And no one ever posts pictures of the events leading up to their wedding, do they?
We were super lucky to have Michele with us all weekend, which means we are also double lucky to have beautiful pictures from the whole amazing party.
(Mandatory pre-dinner cockail hour for mingling and calming of the nerves with martinis)
(DIY jam placecards in action!)
(Aren’t Sky & Melanie cute? I love this picture)
Post wedding words:
Only allow yourself a finite amount of obsessing once you get your photos back. I keep looking at them and while I love love love them, I keep wishing I had done more to make it perfecterest. Which is so lame, I know. But I can’t help it. My rehearsal dinner table needed heaps of fresh dates and flowers down the center and pretty things hanging from the rafters and dark chairs and cuter tags on the jam jars. But this is all easy to want when the wedding madness is over and you don’t have 37 projects on your list at all times.
When you are in it, cut out as many projects as possible to ensure that you are not stressed in the days leading up to your wedding and allow you to spend time with the people who came to celebrate with you two. That is so much more important… well aware. Even though I can’t help making mental changes. To the event that has already happened. Someone cut me off from wedding blogs.
Dinner was at The Colony Palms, on the second floor balcony above the pool… for the curious.
