I can't totally steal @southernpeach89 's fire but I HAVE to share a couple of things from the wedding on Saturday. The day of was absolutely beautiful by the time the afternoon rolled around. If it hadn't been for the wind and cold temperatures the weather would have been perfect. I think the only minor point of the drama for the day was when we were all lined up alonside the venue and preparing to walk down the aisle. I realized at very nearly the last second the flower girl was missing her basket and the ring bearer was missing the devotional he was asked to carry. I sprinted in my dress back inside and found both items and brought them back just as the first bridesmaids were making their way down the aisle. Anyway....pictures!!!

    I can't wait to see more too! The photographer is supposed to share a link later this afternoon of all of the pictures he took. For now it's just 40 or so that he posted on his Facebook page this morning. I took a bunch of pictures too that I'll share later of the rehearsal dinner and us getting ready. I swear, the RD could have stood alone as a wedding. Her H's (EEEE!!!) step mom and mom did an a amazing job with the venue they reserved for the night. There was a catered meal, an open bar, and a live band and the decorations were gorgeous! They also had the most amazing ice cream sundae bar for dessert!

    @CASK85 My dad is a retired Army colonel. My sister requested that he wear his dress uniform for the wedding instead of the more traditional tux. I think a lot of people were impressed! The DJ kept referring to him over the mic as "The Colonol" all night. It's been 13 years since my dad retired from the Army...I think he was just happy he was still able to fit in his uniform.

  • I had to double take the picture of the older fella. He looks a lot like Patrick Stewart.

    @beanbot2002 That's my grandfather! I don't think I've ever seen that...but I totally agree...he does resemble Patrick Stewart. I just love this picture so much...I think he's telling the photographer to take his camera and stick it unfortunately. But it's still a good shot of him. :)

    Nassau Island in the Bahamas. They went to a Sandals resort there. They had originally booked a trip to Sandals in St. Lucia but when they got to the airport this morning they couldn't go because BIL's passport expires in 5 1/2 months and apparently they won't allow you in the country unless your passport is good for at least another 6 months for some crazy reason! Nobody knew this or saw any information anywhere that this was a rule! Thank goodness my dad waited for them to get through security! My sister came out in tears but they were still able to rebook all their travel and get on another plane right away.



  • Everything looks wonderful! I can't wait to see more pictures!!!

    Ugh, that's so frustrating! I actually went to Italy when I was younger, and they let me get on the plane even though my passport expired 5 days after I was due to return. I shouldn't have been cutting it close, but geez, 6 months? REALLY?

    Anyway ... thanks for the pictures so we don't have to die of anticipation waiting for @southernpeach89 to return! Everything looks so amazing!

  • @lmhollister oh my gosh!  I would absolutely freak out at the airport.  I'm glad they were able to fix that mistake (although, really, St. Lucia, 6 months?!)

    My passport is currently expired.  And I'm moving so I'm not renewing it until I have a new address...good thing our honeymoon doesn't even have a month yet lol
