Where do you start when you recap the most perfect day of your entire life? Let’s try the beginning 🙂
Justin and I stayed at my parents’ house the night before our wedding. It was very convenient since we were up so late partying the night before. When we woke up in the morning, he gave me part 2 of my wedding day present…Bride and Groom Tervis Tumblers to take on our honeymoon!
I had all of my girls come to my parents’ house to get ready in the morning. My goal was to have a really laid back atmosphere were we could take our time and drink mimosas while we got our hair and makeup done. #missionaccomplished
While we were getting ready, my groom took off to go play soccer with his groomsmen, friends, and our dads. It was threatening rain all day, so they rented out an indoor soccer arena and had an absolute blast. I REALLY wish I had some pictures of that. After a long morning of soccer, it took them all of 3 minutes to get ready…guys have it so easy 😉
After hair and makeup, all of us girls carpooled over to the Muhammad Ali Center to get dressed. I did a first look with my dad and I am so glad I did. It was a really special moment. On a day that is so busy, it’s really great to have those few quite moments to look back on.
I definitely recommend a first look to all future brides. It was another really special moment that I will always remember from my wedding day. Plus – it saves time between the wedding ceremony and the reception! After our first look we took all of our photos so that we could get the party started as soon as we said “I Do.”
Stay tuned for more pictures next week (and the week after that)!
