LAKE TAHOE - RECap =D

The day of didn't go as planned (of course), but there were some good things about it and some really bad things about it....when we arrived in Tahoe, I started coming down with a cold (sore throat and lots of coughing)....but FI & I didn't get to sleep until after 2 am the night before....a lot of our friends were getting in late that night and we had to prep some of them on the events that were to happen...but even though we didn't sleep a lot, I was up by like 6 am......we lounged around until 7 and FI started getting ready in our room since it was sooo early.  My girls didn't need to meet with me until after 8 am, so I just got as ready as I could without them there.  My MUA/friend did my make up first and then was able to touch up my BMs =)  Afterwards, we had to get the salon to get our hair done....I had the most flamboyent Texan I've ever met and he did the most FABULOUS job on my hair (loved it!).....and he only took about an hour!?!  We finished up there and we drove back to my hotel room to grab the flowers and last minute items and headed to the venue (which was like 5 minutes from our hotel). 

When we got there, I decided to get into my dress (because I wasn't sure how long it would take to get into it since it's a corset back)....then my BMs changed, my MUA touched me up some more and then the waiting began...we were sooo ahead of schedule....and I had such butterflies in my stomach....FINALLY, they said we were beginning....when I walked around the corner, FI said it looked like I was RUNNING down the aisle (lol, that's what I get for not having someone else walk with me!)...I realized I was walking really fast when I reached the start of the runner....

The ceremony was perfect and the weather was gorgeous....I couldn't have asked for a better day =)  Our reception was too much fun (too much alcohol, not enough food lol) and by the end of the reception, DH (!!) was throwing up and had to be dragged back to the hotel room by his new wife =P  When we were walking through the lobby, security was called and they were watching us as we walked across the lobby into the elevator.  LUCKILY, we made it back into our room and he proceeded to throw up for an hour and passed out until 5:30 the NEXT MORNING!  *sigh* we had a LOOOOOOONG talk the next morning and now we are man and wife =)  Here are some of the pics =)
