(Cheekymar) Wedding Recap - Part 1


See Pictures posted last week: cheekymar-back-from-hm-a-mrs-pictures


The day (with hiccups and all) was amazing. I literally Married my best friend (of 10yrs). It was the best day of my life. I felt so overwhelmed with love and support. All the details turned out almos t exactly how I had envisioned in my head. When I got there for the First Look, I was taken back at how the set up looked - beautiful. The Getting ready, went without a hitch. My hair and makeup was Perfect! And I couldn’t ask for better Bridesmaids (except my MOH was horrible, but that was no surprise with how she acted the whole planning…). My Mom is the most amazing women in the world and is simply GORGEOUS. Im so head over heels in love with my HUSBAND, that I can’t help but feel very blessed in my life. I can honestly say – I wouldn’t change a thing. 


The Good!


The weather on our wedding day was awesome. It was the hottest day of the week which during set-up was almost too much to bear, but turned out practically perfect at the beginning or our cocktail hour , then outstanding during reception into the night.


The bridesmaid’s bouquets were just outstanding…  Exactly how I envisioned them looking. The mom’s corsages were gorgeous with the brooc hes that I had included for the florist to work with. The CP’s were to die for (high & low) & the little extra’s (aisle flowers, wine bottle calla lilies) were delivered as promised. I would recommend my flower lady to any San Diego Bride! She is just the biggest sweet-heart in the world & she seemed genuinely excited about doing my wedding. She was there all day in the heat & was there in a heartbeat if anything needed to be re-affixed... there were a few issues wit h the flowers which I listed in “The Bad”, but has very little to do with what she was able to deliver. Her quality is FAR above what she charged. So, even if I was a little disappointed with 1 or 2 things, the price was WELL worth the product. 

 My 1 year old Flower Girl! She was a crying mess the whole day… She burned her little hand on a curling iron while everyone was getting ready (No negligence on anyone’s part, but there was about 10 curling irons around the room & this one happened to be OFF & inside a suitcase… still hot though). I was so nervous about her screaming down the aisle, but right before her turn, SHE was ALL SMILES. She must have a modeling career in her future, because she loved the attention from everyone. There was also a peacock that was hanging out at the Ceremony Location & she was so enamored by him that she was just a ball of fun through the entire thing! I was thrilled!! PLUS, she is SO adorable, and her dress (which was changed from the original tutu) turned out better than perfect!


The Great!


The Arch. Wow – I was blown away at how gorgeous my Chandelier/Arch turned out. When I was walking down the aisle, I got goose bumps with how breathtaking it was. (Hilariously depressing story a bout the Chandelier included in “The Ugly”). I got nothing by overwhelming compliments on how gorgeous it was. I was and still am in AWE of how amazing the Ceremony looked. 


My Husband. He is just the biggest sweet-pea ever. He was a big-ole Love Bug throughout this entire process. His speech at the Rehearsal dinner literally took my breath away & made 98% of the peop le that were there bawl like babies (mostly the groomsmen!!). I had NO idea he had that sort of talent in him to be such an amazing speaker... I was having quite the HORRIBLE day/night (see “The Ugly”), and he still had the ability to make me feel so beautiful and special. 


My Bridesmaids. They looked outstanding & were so wonderful the whole day. No drama, no stress – Just fun, beautiful, fresh & fabulous. They were all dressed & ready on time & ju st were so great.  It’s funny how I feel my friends that I have known for just a handful of years are MORE family than my own family! I am eternally grateful for the friends that I have. They are truly dazzling.


My Ring bears are awesome. They looked so great, were the hit of the wedding & it didn’t hurt that they were repeatedly saying” You looks so pretty Aunt Marah…” They were so grown up, and polite to all the guests & seriously looked AMAZING.


Catering company/food. Wow – I can go on & on about how delicious our food was to eat and how Top-Notch our service was that they provided. Nobody had an empty glass. No trash was left for m ore than 2 seconds. They were always 5 steps ahead of the game & I would recommend them to ANY BRIDE!!! Wow service is all I can say.
