The Wedding Part 1

It's the Mrs. reporting in. =]

Cheesy, right?

Anyway, I don't have ANY professional pictures yet-- not even a teaser photo-- so my recaps won't be as beautiful as they could be, but I know inquiring minds want to know all about our wedding day.

I can't blame you, it was amazing.

Unforunately, our wedding day was a freakishly cold, rainy day in Washington, D.C. We planned our October wedding for the mild weather and the outdoor pictures and we got neither. Other than that, it was an absolute dream.

I don't know how I did it, but I remained calm, cool and pretty collected throughout most of the wedding process-- especially over the last few days. The terrible weather didn't even make me sweat. I find this odd, since i'm a complete control freak, but I went with it. It felt good to be calm.

Here's a pic of the girls and I getting ready! I am sipping my coffee.


The morning of the wedding, the girls and I had a early wake-up call for hair and make-up. We hung out, drank coffee, and jammed out to Miley Cyrus (a little tragic, I know). I loved the way that my hair and make-up turned out, but it all felt a little weird. I've never worn foundation or a lot of make up in my life, so I barely recognized myself.

Here's the hairstylist working her magic!


...and the make-up artist


The finished look (not a great pic of me)


and here's the girls helping me get dressed. We have my bridesmaids Mari, Noelle and my maid of honor and sister putting the garter on me.


Stay tuned for part 2! The ceremony =]

You look beautiful! I had to laugh that you planned your wedding for the "mild" weather. I planned my October wedding with my desire to not sweat in mind and my wedding day was the last 90 degree weather day in Michigan:-)

I can't wait to see more pictures!!
