Well, our day has finally come and gone and we were so pleased with how everything turned out!

 

Our fabu photog, Nataly Lemus, really showcased some wonderful shots in her blog while we wait for all the finished images.

We encountered some brief bouts with rain, tornados and other events provided by Mother Nature, but through it all, we made it through and had the sun return in time for the ceremony and post-pictures.

 

The reception turned out wonderfully and all the details were in place!  Our guests loved everything and couldn't believe that we did this all ourselves.  Hooray!

 

I'll be posting more soon!

'Nuff said. I love it! And it's a lot better in person. :)

Being a plus size gal, I wanted something that would be elegant, but not too flashy. You don't want to see my "girls" all over the place, right? ;-)


So, I picked this A-Line design by Aurora D'Paradisso. It fits so well and has a true lace up bodice. I didn't need any alterations, except to create a bustle. It has intricate embroidered detail and can be found throughout the gown. It also has delicate flower accents in the front that are really light, but are perfect for my garden themed wedding. I love it!

I had a really hard time deciding if I even *wanted* a veil. But after I came across these silk chiffon veils, I knew I was set. They are so soft and flow like fabric. It really accents the laid back feel of the wedding, and I won't have that netting to stick to my hair and feel all blah. :)

We're going to have four (I think.) flower girls in the wedding. Two of them may not be able to make it, but we're hopeful.


I just fell in love with these dresses from http://www.foxnlily.com. They're a lovely silk duponi material with a high empire waist and a sage green sash. This is their "Chloe" style.

Heh, such a silly name. But I guess they really do dote on us brides, don't they? I picked these lovely dresses from Ann Taylor in style Averie, when they were on clearance and matching shoes, all in Meadow Green. The shoes and dresses were all under $100 each! I'm so pleased I didn't make them break the bank. They're already flying out from other states to be in the wedding. The outfit above reflects the full ensemble as it looks in person, and ours includes the honeydew colored sash, that matches the silk trim.


They'll also be wearing these pearl necklaces with matching sage green ribbon as the fastener.
