I LOVE this shot of my La Perla corset...it was a must! I looked high & low for the perfect corset and finally found this beauty at a lingerie boutique in Altanta, GA.
My cousin's reaction to my make-up when I first walked out of the bathroom ;) No one (except for my mom) had seen me at this point. Her reaction were priceless! My make-up artist & hair dresser were amazing (check out "My Make-up Inspiration" page). A special thanks goes out to Shannon Shockley from Sephora and Anna Williams from Salon Divino in Knoxville, TN.
The "iconic" Victoria Secret Robe!!! A gift from my sister-in-law ;)
The "putting on the dress" moment...YEAH!!!
It's starting to "sink in" at this point ;)
My gorgeous "Gram Gram" checking me out ;)
OK...so my mother decided to tighten my corset before zipping up my gown. And I couldn't breathe!!!
So of course one of my bridesmaids decided to take a picture to capture the moment.

My Planner, Angie Foremen from Absolute Wedding Perfection in Knoxville, TN. She is being entertained by all of us trying to get me ready and in a timely fashion ;)
My BMs & MOH figuring out my bustle and helping me put on one pair of shoes... out of the three gorgeous pair that I wore on my wedding day ;) These were made by Martinez Valero! I wore these to walk around the retreat grounds to take pictures with the bridal party. They were sooooo comfy and had a low heel that made them easy to walk in. But I also wore a pair of Stuart Weitzmans for my ceremony and a pair of Manolo Blahniks for my reception.
ALL dressed & ready for my close-ups... ;)
My ride is here...lol! A 1959 Rolls Royce parked next to my golf cart ;) As for the golf cart, it really came in handy for riding around the retreat and visiting all of my guests the day after.
Heading for my pre-ceremony shots...around Butterfly Gap!
