I just got back from our honeymoon and I can't help but to just smie and re-live all the amazing things that happened on the most perfect day of our lives.
We got married August 29th in Watersound, FL.. Its between Destin, FL and Panama City, FL- right off hwy 98 and 30A. This spot was very important to us.. we loved the nantucket feel as well as the private nature of the area. It was the most beautiful back drop..
My day started at 8:00 am...I got up, got showered.. made sure to shave every inch of my legs.. haha!! Then made my way to the salon with the girls :)
Salon: 10am- All of the girls got their hair done and ate "brunch" style food. It was alot of fun. It really gave me a little while to just relax and take it all in. (of course, with a bunch of girls there will always be alittle drama.. I suppose.. My maid of honor didnt talk to me the whole day, apparently she was mad that I didnt announce to everyone the night before at the rehearsal about her and how amazing she was.. oops! Nothing intentional.. I just had alot on my mind.. shame on me right??)
Back to Suite at the Watersound Beach club at 2:30.. where I sat around and drank mimosas with the girls!
Photographer arrived at 3:30- right on time!! If anyone is getting married and wants a fabulous photog let me know.. they are sublime studios www.thesublimewedding.com.. they were phenomonal!!! Also check out the blog thesublimeblog.com
Ceremony was suppose to start at 5:30 however people were running late.. so we pushed it back to 5:45 which was perfect.
The most amazing part of the day had to be when we were getting ready to walk up the boardwalk to the ceremony and the temperature dropped 10 degrees and the clouds covered the sun.. making for a wonderful evening.. not too hot and just enough breeze.. It was perfect
After the really fast ceremony.. no kidding.. it was at max 8 minutes.. we proceeded to do photos for the next almost 2 hours.. Then we headed to the party
For the reception.. I wanted a party! My theme was vintage beach, so to stick with that I chose to do lots of "christmas lights", ivory table clothes with white chairs, and lots of candels and mason jars.. it was absolutly breathtaking...
And for my biggest surprise of the evening was my cake.. From the very beginning I wanted a 4 tier rock candy cake! I know what your thinking, what?? But pretty much its white buttercream with rock candy placed generously around it to create the look of pure elegance.. My mother told me I couldnt have it because it would cost more then they had alloted! So I just left it to her to choose my cake, by this point I was over the decision making and I trusted her.. So as I walked into the reception I was stunned to see my perfect 4 tiered rock candy "peach" cake.. I love the color peach/apricot.. and here it is
of course we mutilated it after we cut into it.. because to save money they did one layer stirafoam and then because it was buttercream it started to melt.. no worries we got to it and was able to do the traditional pictures, etc.. Then the crew took it off and cut it for each guest individually!!!
