Senorita's Recap- with Pics of course!
Friday evening- Hen Party! My girls rented a SPA!!! We hung out in our robes and got pampered for 5 hours! They brought food and snack and drinks- I can tell you how much fun it was! :-) There were 11 ladies there including FMIL and her SIL. We had so much fun! Then we head out for kareoke! We rocked it too! My sis brought me and BM Abbey home to my parents house...I had said goodbye to FI at 4 pm and I have to say I missed him a bit!
Saturday- A quiet morning. Dad made us coffee, mom made us pancakes. We sat around and did nothing for most of the morning...it was great! We went to store for some emergency things- and then for a mani! Mine was great BMs not so much :-( But my friend arrived from Ohio and we hung out all together for the rest of the afternoon! Then it was time for the RD and we all traveled over there- MOH arrived and it was chaos as there were 5 women and my dad in the house...poor man! It was like a college dorm!
RD went perfectly! Pizza, wings and antipasto! Yum!!! BIL picked it up while we did R @ church! It was great! As I was coming down the aisle I got a little misty and just as I was about to cry- I crossed over the hot air vent....and my skirt went all Marilyn Monroe! We all were hysterical...BMs BF got it on video...should be fun!!!
Went home and yapped for hours with now 2 BMs and friend from Ohio....she pulled the sdhort straw and had to sleep with me...but we ended up talking for another hour! She was great!!! :-)
6:15 Sunday 11-13-11 It is our day! I wake up and have to shower...Berna- hair stylist arrives at 7 on the dot! She did an AMAZING JOB on our hair and even fixed my nieces piggy tails and added an extra MOH to the mix! She was FANTASTIC!!!!
10:30 Photog arrives...he is freaking AMAZING...(may be the word of the weekend!) FG wants no part of pictures- we do some inside and out with fam and w ladies! 12- He heads to church for pix with the GMs. I tell him there is a park in walking distance..have fun! They did!

We pull up to church at 12:45- GMs are walking back from park! I stay in the car and watch final guests arrive teasing a few on thier way in!
1pm- It is time!!!!! Here we go! Limo driver is also a professional train carrier, purse holder, bride helper! He floofs my train before I go down the aisle! I barely hold it together the whole ceremony! FI looked awaeomse at the end of the aise! :-) I make eye contact w/ him and tear up...he has tears in eyes...they never fall (darn! lost that bet!) GM Nap keeps smiling the whole time...he is my focal point when I need to get it together! LOL!!! MatOH and MOH are sobbing messes behind me! I say my vows loud and proud!
