Pre-Ceremony, (Bride side shot by Critsey Rowe, Groom side by Thomas Geist)
Mireya was the best makeup/hair artist a girl could ask for!
Opening his gift (my boudoir book)
boy opening their gifts (dog tags with their nicknames for all and unique personalized gifts too)
my gals opening their gifts (crystal starfish necklaces and a fairy necklace for the flowergirl)
Opening my gift (a pink nano)
Showing off my "Property of Mouse" undies (his nickname since before I knew him)
I did have clip on extensions (real Remy hair from Sally's) to add fullness (not length) so my due would survive the wind! I was very happy with them! Might have to wear them again soon!
with his parents
before they blew away LOL
our wine ceremony box
petal toss, programs, and personalized sandalwood fan favors tucked in the guest chair sashes
Ahem... the White Sox side (the good side) is not visible at the moment)
My homemade boutonnieres (only the grooms held up... lol)
Sand, wine, and dove ceremony set up
I was part of a starfish passing (blue) and started my own (clear)
two canisters (one is much smaller and hidden) containing both pairs of grandparents ashes in each
our little dancer
only my dad came to the destination part (he walked me to the aisle and half way up)
Grom started walking toward me when I made it to the aisle
We met in the middle
We walked the rest of the way with out my dad to face our future together!
I thought we got a pic of him falling asleep (I'll have to find it) sooo cute!
Wine ceremony (we both wrote love letters the day of the wedding, which were sealed and locked in a box with glasses and a wine bottle at our ceremony. On our five year, we will reopen the box and drink our wine while reading how we felt about one another 5 years ago. Also to be used if the couple ever contemplates ending their marriage; as a reminder of their love and to rekindle the love)
Sang to my Groom
My family (alot of my friends made it, but my family couldn't besides my dad)
The bridal party (sans crabby ring bearer)
