Tying the Knot: Getting Ready

I opened my eyes the morning of our wedding and thought to myself, “it’s here, it’s really here.” I took the fastest shower of my life since I knew that the hair & make-up people along with my bridesmaids would be arriving in my Presidential Suite any minute. I got into to the clothes I would be getting ready in and made a beeline to the refrigerator. Out came the champagne and OJ. A necessity, of you ask me. In trickled my vendors followed by excited bridesmaids with exclamations of, “can you believe your big day is finally here!?” and “we are so excited!!”













Before I knew it, I was getting my hair and make-up done. I showed my hair stylist these pictures at our trial as well as the day of and I was in love with the results {which you'll be able to see more of in the following posts}.


As for my make-up, I knew that I still wanted to look like myself on my wedding day so we just played up my eyes a little more than I usually do and I was good to go.

Then it was time for my Mommy to help me get into my dress.
The dress fit, with room to spare, and that made for a very happy bride.

It was time to put on my Givenchy earrings, garter , perfect plum peep toe shoes, and say a quick good-bye to my beautiful bridesmaids and Mommy before seeing Christopher for the first time.
