We had an amazing day!
The day before the wedding there was a 40% chance of rain in the afternoon and that freaked me out since we chose our date in August to avoid the crazy Seattle rain. So we added a first look in the morning and rented more umbrellas. Thankfully it didn't rain at all the whole day!
Getting ready pics: I got ready in our suite at the Mayflower Park Hotel and DH got ready in another room at the Mayflower. DH got me a surprise gift (Prada sunglasses with a pink outline I loved them and wore them almost every day of the honeymoon!) even though we weren't supposed to exchange gifts on the wedding day. I had Penn State garters and DH loved them. We were originally supposed to get ready with our bridal party but since we rescheduled to have a first look in the morning (due to rain) we just told them to get ready later!
We actually stopped by a tennis court and played some tennis. I was tortured with tennis lessons as a kid, my dad wanted me to be some professional player but I hated it and I thought he would love the tennis pics.
Our priest was really cute, we were his first American wedding. He actually got the best man's number to check up on us haha. After we signed the marriage license he was supposed to sign it but I guess we got carried away and started hugging everyone and then he told us to watch him sign it hehe.
After the ceremoy pics:
The reception room looked much better than we imagined! The pink uplights transformed the room and I was in love with our centerpieces (that must have been the only thing I didn't second guess the whole time while planning the wedding). DH finally appreciated uplights after seeing the room :)
I love this pic so much!
