**Edited for grammar** Let me start off by saying, the 10 days leading up to our wedding were insane. By that I mean:
* A groomsman dropped out
* My parents and I had an argument 2 weeks before the wedding. (They don't hold the purse strings; but my relationship with them is complicated and my mom is toxic to begin with) and they refused
to come to our wedding
My groom and I were devastated by this one week before our wedding, I cried for a couple of days. My sister (a bm) tried with much effort to convince them to come. My youngest sister who is 17 and still lives at home (another bm) was able to be in the wedding party still.
* Because of this, I had to change everything with the ceremony, photography, dj, florist.
*My own daughter walked me down the aisle and gave me away.
* We decided on a first look, and we're so glad we did!!!
*Oh, and I was awake at 2 am; my sisters at 3 am. We got very little sleep.
That said, everyone said we had a beautiful wedding, and they loved the food, cake, venue, everything! Our event planner for Diamond Mills was an absolute angel!
Here are some highlights from our morning/day Wedding at Diamond Mills Hotel in Saugerties, NY!
