      I was supposed to post the pics awhile ago, but things were so hetic! I tried to post last night, but I guess it didn't want to work! I'm finally in Africa and its HOT here! I was able to squeeze in my bridal portraits before I left, so my digital proofs are slowly coming in (my photog hasn't developed the BW film ones yet)....it definately gives me something to look forward to while I am away! Since this thing is being tricky, I'll post them one at a time. (these are just the proofs...no edits yet!)

       

      PS- love all the pictures, everyone looks so pretty in their gowns!

       



      Well my whole world got flipped upside down. I am an officer in the Marine Corps and I was told I would not be deploying until next year (because I am a department head and the only one to run the shop while my comm chief is deployed). My fiance and I planned our wedding this Aug in Jamaica. I was told two weeks ago, I am leaving for Africa for a 6 month deployment. Oh the emotions I was going through....at first, it was unsure I would be able to come back to attend my own wedding. Well luckily for us, they granted me 9 days of leave to get  back. Now a bigger concern....my dress. I ordered a David Tutera dress (the "molly"), which I was in love with that was not coming in until July. When I tried it on, I surpised the store owner by not needing a single bit of alterations, but I didn't bother to measure myself....especially since I could try on the dress. Now I don't know if I have gained or lost 5 lbs since then! I was able to contact David Tutera and let me tell you....they rock! They were able to get me my dress (without paying any extra fees), in less than two weeks! It is ready for me to pick up!!!! yay! I'm going to go in on Tuesday and try it on. I'm also going to measure myself so I know what my size is. No time for alterations. Definitely check out their dresses, they bent over backwards to send in a sample for me to TRY on before I ordered it (back in Jan) and now they are helping again by taking one more stressful event out of the equation. His company is amazing!

       

      PS- I will post pics from Tuesday's dress fitting!

              Those are bougainvillea flowers picked from the hotel property. They hold up really well in the heat!

                    Wow! This is a beautiful dress. I can't believe you had a family friend make it! I'm sure you saved a boatload. You're brave for doing it that way, but I'd say it definitely paid off. It fits you like a glove. Congratulations!!!!
