I realize I've been married almost 8 months now, but things have been so busy for the two of us it's not even funny anymore! Anyways, the wedding was perfect! Beyond perfect actually. My photographers did an amazing job capturing our day.

I actually bought the shoes before I bought the dress, and only spent $20 on them about a year ago at Charlotte Russe! :)

So, I went to 5 different bridal shops in the past 2 years of this engagement driving myself crazy over a dress. The first dress I picked out, is the dress I actually ended up buying in the long run. I was so afraid to get it because it was returned 3 different times... First time, the FI died in a motorcycle accident... second time, the FI was getting deployed so they had a quick beach wedding, and third time, the FI cheated.. so needless to say I was very leary towards it, so I had them write the number down, and each time I went into David's Bridal (which was at least 5 times) I picked the dress out without them telling me it was on my list, so I finally got it on sale ($300 off) so only ended up paying $850 for it... +$99 for the gown preservation :) I love this dress <3
