Non-Pros: Getting Ready

I woke up and showered at my parents' house, then went to the salon for my hair appointment. A few of my girls also had their hair done there, and eventually all made it back to my parents' for brunch, champagne, and make up.

Jordan my MUA is also one of my BFF, and I ended up making him my Man of Honor! He was such a godsend that day that I had him wear the bout that my sick uncle obviously wouldn't be wearing, and he rode in the limo with the rest of the girls :)

Here he is with our mutual friend, my MOH, Jenn

Not gonna lie... I normally dislike these flower-in-the-air photos, but my BM Alison insisted...

Then it was time for the (late) limo to get us to the venue. We drank champagne, I showed off my Phillies garters (a surprise for Dan), and my girls calmed me down during my last major freak-out.

Meanwhile, the boys were already at the venue, along with Dan's parents, grandparents, and the officiant.

Dan and my parents: My poor stressed out mother hates this photo, but it's one of the only ones I have of her from the wedding at all :(

We girls arrived and hurried inside between thunderstorms; my FG Abigail met us there :)

In the bridal suite I found a card and gift from Dan. The card was so sweet, and I started tearing up. There are no pictures here, but the gift had a note attached that read: "A half carat for my better half," and inside the box was the most beautiful pair of half carat diamond earrings. Luckily I wasn't wearing anything in my second holes, so I immediately put those on <3

Afterward, while I waited upstairs, my girls all were getting ready to walk the aisle.
