MY MOH did an amazing job as well as his best man at their toasts. Later on in the evening, Stephen's aunt came up to us and my MOH and said you hit a soft spot during your speech, because how you feel about Kara and Stephen is exactly how I felt about Stephen's Mother and my Brother. My MOH said that he took her best friend away from her, but now that I have a new bf and that she loves us both, etc etc. It was very touching.
We had a blast! We danced and danced and my only regret was I didn't mingle enough! Everyone all night kept on saying how much they loved the food, the music and just everthing about it. No one cared about the rain, and some went out by the beach anyhow. I loved my wedding from start to finish!
Okay so - I am not traditional and like not normal :) So when I told DH that I wanted to have Chili Peppers as centerpieces his head cocked to the side and said "whatchu talking bout, willis?". IF I had to put a "theme" to our wedding, I'd say it was a sweet and spicy wedding. We used our favorite restaurants as our table names, we made our very own spice rub as favors, we had chili peppers as our centerpieces, we had salt water taffy for the guests seating and we had good humor icecream bars for our guests. All and All - I loved my freaking chili peppers!!
Loved our friends and our wedding party. Many thanks to the hotel, Blue Bay Inn for letting us use their loung for pictures. Again, so glad we saw each other and were able to get these great shots done - because we would have been SOL if we didn't!!
The rehearsal for the ceremony was great - everything outside by the water, we had a beautiful bamboo altar, but with the rain we had to move it inside. I will say when I first walked in I was disappointed because everyone was looking at us come in and I didn't want them to see us. My sister n law insisted that the venue move the altar inside the tent because that is what I wanted (she rocked)!! Look how wet the guys were!!
So I know that a lot of brides go back and forth on the "do I see him, or don't I"? At first we both were like NO WAY! Well, let's thank buddha for going with it. It downpoured the entire wedding, so without the reveal, we would not have had any of the great shots that we got. Plus we got some nerves out of the way along with just an amazing moment between the two of us.
