some of the details~i made burlap table runners for all of the tables, a photo collage of pictures of the two of us growing up(he's still getting shit from co-workers about the picture of him rocking a sweet 1980's mullet!), our card box was a mailbox my girlfriend painted our names on it and i attached gingham ribbon to it, "eat, drink and be married " coasters for the bar.
the first dance. we could never agree on a song. in the end i let him pick. we danced to nora jones "come away with me"
i love all of the black and white photos. the first dance is odd thing. it's this private moment but you're kind of aware that a room full of people are watching you.
a quiet moment watching our families celebrate..amazing!
one of my best friends and a good shot of some of the table decor. there was lots of anthro there:)
our cake was sooo freaking good! the bottom was french vanilla cake with cookies and cream filling, the middle was lemon with raspberry filling and the top was carrot cake. i had a slice of each! you can also see the eyelet sleeves i made for some of the hurricanes.

i think we're the second one down:)

the first time i got married my older brother gave me away. i am so thankful that my 80 year old dad was able to walk me down the aisle.
doug's stepfather serenaded us with a version of jack johnson's "better together" one of the flower girls dropped her basket which provided a funny moment.
my handsome groom tying his bowtie.
coming around the corner for the first look! and the bouquet....love,

dress~salty seas dress~anthropologie
i can't believe it's already tuesday! i'm still recovering from the very busy weekend. anyway, i was delighted that this dress went on sale! i was considering it for our rehearsal dinner but i ended up wearing another dress(the polka dot one) and then i i got tired of spending money....seriously, did i just say that?! i decided to pass but would still visit it from time to time on my wishlist. when it popped up on sale it was a go. i'm so glad i decided to get it. i love it and the fit of the petite size ordered online fits much better than the regular size i tried on in the store. my daughters aren't giving this little number much love but the lady that chased me down in the grocery to tell me she loves it, is giving it two thumbs up:) i added a little braided belt to give it a little more interest and threw on the green suede wedges to make it a little more fun(as if a dress covered in lobsters needs more fun..ha!).
i thought last month was busy but this one appears to be just as jammed packed! i think we have every weekend booked until after the fourth of july. i'm not a person that likes to have a jammed packed social schedule. i'm more of home body so all of these obligations have me a little frazzled. i love spending time with family and friends but i'm hoping for a nice quiet afternoon where i can lounge by the pool and read sooner rather than later.
our photographer said that we should be getting our pictures in the next week or so and i am planning on doing a wedding recap post. i also wanted to do a little mini recap of our wonderful honeymoon in savannah(which we loooooved!!!)but i haven't managed to find the time for that either:( as much as i lecture my kids about time management, i haven't been doing a great job of it lately. oh well, i'm off to watch the season finale of glee! have a lovely tuesday evening.
*the graduate is the tiny one in the front:)*
sunday, my oldest daughter graduated from high school. school has never been easy for her but by working her but off she's always managed to get pretty good grades. her senior year managed to make the honor roll for the entire year. we are immensely proud of her! she is smart, funny, compassionate, fiercely loyal, beautiful and all kinds of awesome. in the fall she's headed off to college. congratulations r!!!
