Wedding Wednesday

I won't drag out the wedding pictures forever. I promise. One part this week, and one part next week. And then I'm through!

Here are some of my favorites that weren't published on SMP.

THE dress. I love it. Its just perfection. Every time I look at it I love it more and more.

You have no idea how much fun we had getting ready (once I came out of my cave). I am blessed with the most amazing friends.

The girls all wore monogrammed shirts from Victoria's Secret. You can find them here (now available in black and white polka dots... LOVE that, wish they had those when I was buying)

My monogrammed shirt was a gift from an amazing blogging friend (how thoughtful is that?).

How good is Taylor's reaction the first time she saw my dress?

Searching for a hair that was trapped under the thousands of layers of tulle.

And then our first look...

I sobbed. All I wanted to do all day was see Spencer so when I finally did, I just completely lost it.

I love this handsome human. So much.

The bridal party...

My bridesmaids in their beautiful custom Elise Bergman dresses.

Groomsmen wore a black suit of their choice, white shirt and we provided ties. Don't they look dapper? This was my solution to wanting black tie but the groom nixing it.

All of us together.

The ceremony.

You've probably seen most of these pictures on SMP, so I'll just share my favorites

Our incredible officiant doing this thing. Recognize him?

A stolen moment alone after the ceremony. Probably my favorite picture from the entire day/night.

If you made it to the bottom of this, I'm impressed. If you made it to the bottom and aren't totally sick of my wedding... then come back next week for the reception and after party!

  21. A unique dress for prom or a party ? For sure the One shoulder sleeveless dresses would be just perfect. They are an original and always new style to change from the classy two sleeves dresses. Forever trendy and pretty they would be the dress to look charmingly exceptional in.

  22. The split in front is really above the knee and fitted, so don't think about amending it . I thought I would have to amend a part of the dress, but its perfect and needs no amendment anywhere.
