July 2013 Weddings

Married!!!!! aaaaaaaaaand....

Welp, I'm back from the honeymoon, officially maarried! I can't believe that it has all come and gone!!

I was so worried about rain on the 6th...didn't really consider brutally hot and sweltering! Thank god our ceremony was only 15 minutes on the beach! And thank god that we had those program fans and that our wonderful venue provided waters for everyone!
It was SO hot that our venue coordinator upgraded us (for free....a 10,000$ value, which is INSANE!!!) into their ballroom instead of the poolside tent. It was absolutely gorgeous and well ventilated!!! All of our guests were very appreciative of the change in venue. Our dinner rehearsal was in a different tent the night before and it was on the warm side, even with ACs blasting!
We got in last night at 11:30 so I haven't had much of a chance to chat with a lot of people. BUT I did get a ton of texts and conversing with my family, apparently it's all anyone's still talking about! Our DJ was the balls! Had everyone up and dancing around the table, together, with us....it was just awesome.
There is NOTHING I would have changed about the day....
OH and my first-look dress....totally surprised my hubby when I was coming down the aisle :) it was perfect!!!

On top of all of this.....

We found out 6 days before the wedding that I AM PREGNANT! Holy crud, right?! That certainly threw a curveball at everything! I wanted to wait until after the honeymoon to tell our immediate families and after the first appointment to tell others, but with an open bar wedding and the festivities with it (dinner rehearsal, mimosas the morning of, etc) I told my bridesmaids and family beforehand, knowing that it's super early and anything could happen. These people are also the ones I'd reach out to for support if anything did go wrong, so we felt good telling them. Thank goodness I did! They fed me seltzer waters and cranberry juice all night, looked legit like a cape codder! My photographer and videographer also got the news because my hubby sent me a surprise with a note saying he couldn't wait to see me and that he can't wait to see our baby...haha

Anyways!!! It's been a big couple of weeks! Any more to come! We're expecting and we're also closing on our new house on the 31st!

Here are a couple pictures that were sent to me, of the big day! One is the sprarkler exit...I can't wait to see the professional pics of this! The other is with some of my bridesmaids after the ceremony! :)
