:::Pavez19 RECAP with non-pro pics:::

Let me start by telling you again how much our wedding day was AMAZING! It's seriously the best day of our life and when DH and I think about it, there's nothing that went wrong! We planned this event for two years and we had a lot of time to make expectations about it but everything was way beyond ours! So, without further delay, here is how it went:


Friday:


I had a lot to do during the day so I was very busy until 3:00 p.m. time at which I picked up Steph (BM) to go at my parents where we spent the night with Amé & Audrey (BMs). When we arrived, my oncle frome Texas was there with his childs swimming in my parents' pool so we sat there for a couple of hours, chatting and having wine with them. Amé & Audrey finally arrived and we headed to "Le Soba" which is a nice restaurant where we had dinner just the four of us. It was so great to have a quiet time with my BMs to relax and be excited for what was coming the following day. At 8:30pm, we went back at my parents and I gave them theirs gifts and jewelery. After, we started watching the movie "Bridesmaid". OMG!! That was hilarious..especially when you watch it the day before your own wedding with your own BMs. At 12:30 am we stopped it and went to bed. We all slept like babies until the alarm the next morning.


 


Saturday:


At 7:00 am, I woke up with the alarm. I was so calm and so happy to finally be on my wedding day! I looked outside and there was the most amazing sun and blue sky (seriously, last saturday was one of the most beautiful summer day in Qc!!). We took our time and stayed in bed for 1h, chatting like when we were in highschool and even watching a bit more of the BM movie. Then we had breakfeast on my parents' terrasse and it was the perfect way to start the day.



At 9:00 am, Marcus (hairdresser) arrived and after a quick coffee, started doing hair while Catherine (MUA & friend...the one with the black cam on the picture) was doing makeup with some Celine Dion songs in the background (I'm a serious fan!). The ambiance was perfect! Everything went smoothly and everybody was calm even though really excited. My parents keep telling me how much fun they had while the "getting ready time" and how they are happy we decided to do this at their place. I think it will be one of their favorite part of the day.



Then somewhere during the morning my photog arrived and started taking pictures of us getting ready. Then at 12:00, everybody hair were done so we ate something while the photog was heading to DH's parents to take pictures of the guys. We wait until she came back (watching the end of the movie, ahahah!) to do my makeup and put my dress on.



Then my dad who hadn't see my dress at all had a 1rst look. We both started crying when he saw me. One of my favorite moment of the day!


In no time, the limo was there and just before we left for the church, I read the letter DH wrote me for our "wedding day". It is at this exact moment that I realized I was really getting married and started feeling a bit anxious.



When the limo entered the parking lot of the church, people went inside. It was so fun because 3 of DH's friend had a tailgate with hot dogs in the parking lot. Ahah! Then, just before I headed out from the limo, I saw DH for the first time at the back of the church and totally lost it! He was so beautiful! I couldn't wait to be his wife!



And before I knew it, I was walking down the aisle with my dad, searching for DH. When I saw him, all my nervosity disapeared and I was just soooooooo happy. The ceremony was perfect. The priest was a close friend of our family so it was really personnalized and the musicians were so good! My grandpa did a reading and it was really touching. I don't have pictures of the ceremony yet because there was only the photog who was allowed to take some.


After the congratulations, we headed to "Le manoir Montmorency" for our reception. We were welcome by the Maître d'Hotel and our DJ who guided us to our room. I was the first one to entered and Ohhhhhh! This was amazing!!!!!!!! My vision finally becoming reality and Gosh! It was even more beautiful than what I had envisionned! I trully hope someone had the chance to take a picture of the room before everybody get their seat to show you what it looked like! And all this thanks to your advices and encouragements, PW ladies!


We had cocktail with the guests, took pictures with our photog, Marcus did my second hairdressing, we made our entrance as newlyweds and had dinner. The food was exquisite and the DJ did such a great job of entertainment.



There was beautiful, funny and touching speeches. More pictures. More fun. Then there were more people (everybody we invited only for the evening came!) and we did the daughter/father & mother/son dance, followed by our first dance. It was magical!



Then we danced until our feets hurts and we finished the evening at 2:00am. The rest of the night is only between DH & I ;).



We finished this festivities the morning after by a brunch with our close friends and family:



So all in all...it was a day full of love, magic and happiness. My head is full of memories and even though I wouldn't chage a thing of this day, I wish I could live it again & again & again. The look in the eyes of DH when he was looking at me during the evening...humph...it makes my heart melt each time I think about it! Now, I just can't wait to leave for our honeymoon this saturday anb spend some quality time with DH!!!
