::Mrs. Bella::

LOVED The pictures! Thanks for providing the link!Your make-up was phenom, as well as your photog and yeah of course that dress. I've never seen a dress like that! It looked like it was made for you! Who was the designer? You guys really had some great photo opportunities with all the settings you were in. They came out beautifully!

    Aww thanks Kaila! You're so sweet!! :)  Yeah in hindsight we did get lots of great shots, even though I'm still bummed we didn't get to have the ceremony & formals outside due to the AM rain.  But it all doesn't matter in the long run of course!The dress was by Demetrios, #1341 (looks totally diff on their website than in person in my opinion... check it out if u want http://www.demetriosbride.com/us/index.php?page=collection_hottest&styleID=2054).How are you doing?  Under 8 months to go I see... getting all your vendors and sandcastles lined up I hope?  how are you feeling, excited, stressed, tired of planning yet?

    Wow you are right! Why do the models look so depressed and anorexic? Mine does too! Here is my dress... http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.anjolique.com/uploads/423BACK_2002back.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.anjolique.com/ourcollection/largeview.aspx%3Fid%3D423%26Back%3Dtrue&usg=__KJOcyL-W1E5zxnBot0S_xvFTBOU=&h=474&w=371&sz=86&hl=en&start=7&sig2=7b4wla_VTGP38kuRunNHAw&um=1&tbnid=OrX__nektv0FEM:&tbnh=129&tbnw=101&prev=/images%3Fq%3Danjolique%2B2002%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1&ei=qRfqSqa3AZGsMIPC8Z8NTrust me, If I saw this beforehand on the model I wouldn't have looked for it in the store because she doesn't do it justice. It looks so much better on me and I'm not a skinny person lolJust weird..Yes I am still loven my sandcastle theme! We changed venues, thats about all that is different. We were with Saint clements but my MOH (sister) got preggo and was due the month we were getting married so we had to change the date b/c she couldn't travel out of state. It all worked out for the best in the end... even though we lost our deposit we are happier going with Amarante's. There is always that worry about it raining though when you choose an outdoor venue. That is what we have also. So where was your backup ceremony place? You were supposed to be outside but it rained and then it got moved indoors?

    wow that's a really pretty dress even on the model so I'm sure it looks awesome on you!I can't believe you lost your deposit b/c of the venue switching due to MOH... that's really nice of you to do, but I'm not sure everyone would do the same in your shoes.  I probably would want to, but i dunno what I'd end up doing.  Which side of St. Clements were you on before you switched?  B/c we looked at it and they only had the side available for our dates where the rain plan was under the carport awning (not the stoney indoor chapel) which we just HATED for a rain back up plan.  Our guests would've had to stand under this carport thing outside while it rained around them.  The lady was like "oh when your florist decorates this it's really pretty" but i just was not having it.  That's the main reason we didn't go w/SCC, and seeing as it did rain on our wedding day, I'm glad we didn't just cross our fingers and go for it (their sunken garden was a beautiful Plan A).Our ceremony was held in our ballroom b/c of the rain (and our cocktail hour was indoors in the space outside the ballroom).  We didn't see cocktail hr b/c we were taking pics, but from photos I saw it looked crowded as hell and I know resort guests were squeezing through during cocktail hour, so in hindsight, not a great backup plan either.  But what can you do.  Then during cocktail hour they had time to re-set the ballroom for the reception.
