And filled up....
More Pics to come in DETAILS :)
FYI: Here is the room "before"....
Another wedding held there:
Here are photos from our wedding rehearsal (mostly needed to practice walking down that long staircase!), followed by our rehearsal dinner--a party for 150, complete with dinner and dancing to an amazing blues band!
My adorable nephew: And equally adorable niece:
Introducing the nephews and niece and giving them a pep talk for their big practice walk down the aisle!
My ridiculously adorable parents who got married in this same room 36 years and 2 days before these pics were taken, so cute :)
And non-pros worth sharing :) -
Carson hopping on stage with the band:
These guys came all the way from SPAIN for our wedding weekend, what a blast to have them :)
Last but not least, the LOUBOUCROCS! (back story can be found here: http://www.projectwedding.com/post/list/louboucrocs )
Our second E-Pic session was done at the golf course of my parents' country club. Gorgeous green backgrounds with lots of sunshine :)
And we had to get a picture with the plaque honoring my late grandfather who had a cardiac arrest on this golf course and was taken from us way too soon :(
We did our first (of three) -pic sessions at a local park. The setting provided for some great backgrounds! It's funny how I love these pictures even more now, a year+ later, than I did when I first got them back (but I loved them then, too!)
And a funny series of shots...the pick up thing is hard to do in a little dress ;)
Good times :)
These GORGEOUS shoes were my mom's for my wedding. She just doesn't wear this high of a heel on a regular basis, so I told her I'd see if there was another bride out there in search of these beauties for her wedding day (or for anything else). They are too fabulous of shoes to sit in a box, on a shelf in the closet :) They are a size 7.
As you can see, they are in GREAT condition, she hardly wore them! $150 and they can be yours :)
My fiance COMPLETELY SHOCKED and surprised me with the GORGEOUS princess cut diamond stud earrings as a wedding gift. He felt compelled to give them to me early because the jewelry store I picked up my wedding band from generously offered to let me borrow anything in the store to wear on my wedding day. I was telling my FI how I thought I'd take them up on that and borrow some beautiful earrings...all the while he had these beauties stashed away to give to me to wear on our big day. What a sweetheart. He'd been working away with the jeweler that made my E-Ring to find the perfect earrings to compliment that fabulous diamond...I'd say he succeeded!! They are incredibly sparkly 2.2 carat total weight studs that I may never take out of my ears again ;) I'm a lucky girl!!
