Twired Jen & DG's!
I'd like to warn you that this post isn't one of those fancy posts where I get all philosophical & describe the wedding as if it was a fairy tale. Truth be told, it did kick ass....but it also kicked my ass. We celebrated from Wednesday night 9/28 through Tuesday night 10/4, no joke. I'm as worn out as honeymoon Bella, sans the human/vampire hybrid growing in her womb.
That said, I'd like to share some pictures with you. But before I do that, I'm ridiculously proud to announce that I did not, I repeat I DID NOT SUFFER BOUTS OF DIARRHEA on wedding day! Shock of all shocks my bowels functioned somewhat normally! I owe the poo gods big time for that one.
Without further adieu....some pictures.... unprofessional ones of course.
Checked into the hotel where I used to work the day before the wedding.
ES couldn't have been a better MOH/Sista'. We had cocktails in the bar, she made me drink water, we got ready for the rehearsal dinner...she drove!
PS Sun was in our eyes...crappy pic.
Once we got back to the hotel room after the dinner, we had wine in the Jacuzzi & chatted about all sorts of things. We cheated our (2) glass limit & continued in the room...that's not coffee in my cup. We watched Grey's Anatomy & we were asleep by 10:30. I actually slept! 5 hours to be exact. Once 3:30am rolled around, I couldn't fall back asleep. Still, I was so paranoid about NOT sleeping, that I was satisfied with some sleep.
I was lucky enough to have Brian Bond do our wedding make up.
Brian is a celebrity make up artist from LA, however he grew up in San Diego. He's ridiculously talented and so fun to watch.
Finished product, sans hair...
ES's beautiful eye make up!
Girls ready to roll!
Gma's 1st time in a limo!
I was super calm at this point...oddly enough.
Solo pics pre-ceremony.
DG fumbled on a word, I laughed. Typical.
LOVE the facegrab.
We did photos after the ceremony.
The cake was perfect, just what I envisioned. The florist decorated it with the orchids and little mum thingys...love how they added the chartreuse color I wanted.
Tables....love them! The orchids were the most perfect dark purple.
This pic does not do the color justice...
Bouquets - The florist got the EXACT calla lilies I wanted.
That's it for now. I will post more of the reception soon....those are the really fun ones LOL!
PS I'm almost ashamed to say this for fear of public hanging...but I did not incorporate or hide Twi into my wedding at all! Truly, I just forgot. My mind was going a mile a minute all week leading up to the big day. This doesn't mean it wasn't brought up in some way or another. The Pastor did NOT know about Twilight, but he made reference to my love of concerts in LA....only a select few of us knew what that really meant...100 MONKEYS BABY!
I still wish I would have remembered Mini E....I thought about him halfway through the reception & was so pissed I'd forgotten. Oh well.
I thought of all of you in Forks quite a bit though! Hope you had a blast! Now I'm off on a vacation of my own....tomorrow: Paradise Island, Bahamas baby!
We're staying at an all inclusive resort near Atlantis.
Does anyone see Edward swimming with the dolphins? Hmm....
BE BACK 10/13 :)
