I'm BAAAAAAACK!!!!! recap and Non-Pro Pics Heavy PT. I

I am back as Mrs. Rashida Barrington.


I missed you girls a lot ....Leading up to the wedding was hectic to so I didn’t get to share some things about the wedding planning, but I will along with a revamped BIO =D. We didn’t have an official Honeymoon only b/c it is hurricane season so we dropped off our daughter with my mom and enjoyed our time together as husband at wife at home.


At the beginning of the week they were talking rain. I wasn’t too concerned about it b/c our wedding was indoors, but our photo shoots were outdoors at the nearby park. As we got closer to the wedding day it said hot/sunny and high 80’s oh man I thought I am going to be burning up.  I can honestly say that with all the hiccups our wedding was perfect. Everyone complimented on how everything was gorgeous and beautiful. My ceremony came out to be a very small an intimate wedding which is what I wanted.


Back to the day’s events--Throughout the whole wedding planning I was as calm as a quiet storm until the Saturday morning before our wedding day. I started to get sick and had a major hurricane in the pit of my stomach. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t keep anything down and I had so many emotions going on all at once I had to go in my closet a few times just for a moment to breath.  I broke down Saturday in Costco’s parking lot and bawled b/c the wedding was Monday. Sunday I broke down in Wal-Mart’s parking lot as well and bawled b/c I was getting married again.  I know it was hitting me like a ton of bricks, but once I got all the confirmation calls on Sunday on times we were meeting up is when I got some word of wisdom from my hair stylist.  


Convo—


Me—“Hello”


HS—“ You’re getting married tomorrow”


Me-“I knowwww” (starting to tear)


HS--“Are you excited for your big day tomorrow?”


Me—“I am actually nervous”


HS—“ Awwww.. Don’t be nervous as you said to me you love him, this is your best friend; this is your child’s father. You both made a choice to bring your daughter together into this world and just like he was there for you then he will be there for you in the future. He chose you and you chose him everything will be okay.”


And with that said the butterflies subsided =D.  Now it was time to get back to some last minute work.

Everyone told me GET SOME SLEEP!!! Even my DOC I think the only way that would have happened is if I got a sleeping pill. Because I had a whole lot of energy =D and had a whole lot of worry like how the items were going to get to the venue???  So I stayed up till about 5:30am and went to lay down a little bit. DH did my garter for me after I showed him how to =D. Finished up some little touches packed the stuff that he could into the car and then went to sleep when I got up. So of course I set my alarm for 6am to be out by 7am. SMH!!!! I had to be at the Hairdresser for 8am in BK!!!! I was upset with him and still in awww b/c he wanted me to get some sleep, but I am on a time schedule babe come on :-/. So needless to say I got out at 7:30am. I had to drive to the Bronx to pick up my dad so he could drive me to the Salon. Take the items to the venue go back to the Bronx (b/c we forgot my mother’s dress) pick up the other items from NJ (b/c they all couldn’t fit in my car) and then take those items, the groom, grand-dad and his cousin’s(2) down to the best man’s house in BK to get ready...WOW!!!  So while all of this is going on I am running behind schedule at the hairdresser so were all my girls. I wanted to get my hair done go eat breakfast and then make-up at the hotel, and leave to get ready...not the case...LOL!! I was the last to get my hair done ate a slice of pizza while there and had to rush up the block to my make-up artist to get done up. It was almost 3:30pm my appt was for 1pm at the hotel.  I got made up and my BM’s then we were off to the hotel to get ready. We split into two cabs to the hotel and got ready. My sister (BM) was already there and ready so it was just three girls and My mom to get ready in ½ hour can we do it? We had a black car waiting for us at 5pm to take us to the venue we got in the car at 5:15pm and was at the venue by 5:35pm. The ceremony was supposed to start at 5:30pm wheeew. I am not that late, but wait the groom wasn’t there yet!!!! So I got a call from my dad b/c he was stuck in traffic, and so was the groom. All the while I am waiting nervously...:-/. So I am conversing in the back w/ the bridal party took some shots of Hennessey and Absolute to loosen up, but it wasn’t working. My mom made a joke don’t fall walking down the aisle now...LOL! I needed a laugh. 6:10pm the groom arrives and OMG the flood of tears I was holding back. I didn’t want to ruin my make-up till after the photo shoot.  The girls got in place outside and me and my dad was getting ready in the back.  I was fanning myself not to cry and just wanted to see FI =D.  Once I turned the corner before I walked down the aisle I couldn’t hear anything, see anything except my groom and once I saw his facial expression and him inaudibly say WOW and him getting a hanky from the best man!!!! I started to smile and my emotions subsided.  I realized he was feeling the same way as me. I was able to walk down the aisle and see all the faces there to attend our special day and the ceremony was perfect. We had written our own vows and once we started to say them to each other there was not one person w/o a tear.  It was after all that I realized  nothing else mattered  the whole building could have been falling apart and I am married to my soulmate =D.  I had so many people taking pictures at my wedding that I even wound up with three photographers and I know I can have more than 5 albums of pictures, but I will share with you the best pictures to me...  I got complimented on how beautiful the wedding was and how everything looked and turned out, and I owe it all to my PW girls I cannot thank you enough on how much of an inspiration you gals were and how creative you can get when you want things your way. THANK YOU LADIES!!!!!!!!  And here are my non-pro pics I’ll update later w/ the pro-pics when I get them.
