Thank you for sharing and I'm glad you made the best of your situation with respect to the travel portion of the trip. Good luck to you with your TA...hope something can be worked out for you and your husband.
Hearing how your children read from Dr. Seuss is such a GREAT idea...my boys are going to be 7 and 8 at our wedding and we want to include them as much as possible, and that is the most original reading I've ever heard and so appropriate, especially for kids! Kudos for thinking of that...would you be offended if I possibly used your idea with my own boys?
So glad we also booked HDC...everytime I see their work, I get more and more anxious to work with them on our day. They truly are amazing!

I have no problem with your boys reading the same reading. I will suggest that you go through the book and take out a few of the paragraphs because it's really long. Also, after we read our vows to each other, we also read these vows to my children:
To continue to build a family
That is strong and nurturing.
To care for you
And to help you find the paths
That will lead you through life.
To be proud always of you
And to love you unconditionally.
They were really touched by this and it was a great way to involve them.

WOW, that is soooo beautiful; what a great way to honour your children. I bet there wasn't a dry eye on the beach...I know I'm tearing up.
I've been looking at vows online to include my boys and to find something that my fianc© can say to them since he will, essentially, be joining our family as their stepfather. We want this to be so special for the kids...it's not just about us. We did get a unity candle (one for blended families), with all of our names inscribed on it, as well as the date of the ceremony, but I love the reading because it's a promise that you and your husband made to the children. Again, simply beautiful...
As for the Dr. Seuss reading...I remember reading that to the boys when they were little; I've got to get a copy of it again and take out the parts we'd need. Your ceremony must have been wonderful. Thanks again for the advice. Now, must dry my eyes, and try to work!

The shirt was Banana Republic and the pants were from Tristan (Canadian company). We saw similar ones at Armani Exchange.
It's funny because his mom was so upset he was not going to be wearing a suit. She called us every day leading up to the wedding to get him to change his mind. After a while, he started shopping for blazers to appease her and I had to remind him that this original outfit is what he wanted. He looked great PLUS he would have been miserable with more clothes on in that heat.

Oh, and LOVE your dress!
And I LOVED the dress too. It was worth the 8-hour drive to NYC to buy. Could never afford Vera Wang in Canada, but NYC sales are amazing!
