AW: Milkgal's Wedding recap 1 of 2
First I want to apologise for being MIA lately. Before the wedding I was crazy with work, school, & finishing up wedding things, and now after the wedding I've been in slight wedding withdrawal. I feel kind of bummed its all over =[
Well, Friday 9/17 we left for Vegas! Our flight was suppose to arrive at 4:30 in Vegas, but there was a huge delay which left us getting in at 10pm! It really sucked. Here is DH (yay!!) & I in the airport, you can tell he was totally excited after being there for 5 hours.
Saturday we did a quick run through at the wedding location since we hadn't yet seen it in person and then headed over to get our marriage licnese. Unfortunately lack of sleep DH wasn't in a picture taking mood, so this was all my mom got =[
Then we went back to our hotel room and met all the family members that were coming in. We were able to go out though! My brother, sister-in-law, new sister-in-law, DH and I went out to coyote ugly.
Sunday were were finally able to hit the strip for a little shopping before our rehearsal dinner. DH's parents had dinner catered in their suite. It was the first time that both families really got to meet, and everything went well! We all had a blast!
After we went to Serendipity for Frozen hot chocolates! They were yummy, but I'm not sure they were worth $11...
Monday was wedding day! I woke up about 9am and checked in with all my vendors. I sent pancakes up to DH's room because a year prior, the day he proposed, I was making pancakes when he got down on one knee. Around noon my mom and I got all packed up, hopped in a cab and headed over to Vdara where DH & I spent our wedding night. My mom and I were able to breath a little bit before the rush began. About 12:30 the hair and makeup gal showed up and got to work on me. We had our first look there at the hotel.
We then got in a limo and headed over to the stirling club. When we got there things were not set up yet so I started freaking out. My mom told me to go upstairs and stay away. Because she's an awesome momma she made everything look beautiful! The parents, DH & I hung out while the rest of the family arrived and took their seats. We had a duet playing and it was beautiful.
