Today I’m sharing some photos of getting ready and dressed.
I had made my mom promise me years ago that she could not move out of our house until I got married, so that I could get ready on my wedding day at home. Seeing as it is just her there now, there was no guarantee this would come true, but luckily it is still the place we call home.
Our house is one of my favorite places in the world, and it was my parents dream house they did together and has so many important memories, and I couldn’t picture myself or my family feeling more comfortable on such an important day anywhere but there.
The benefit of a 7 PM ceremony is that we were able to get a late start, relax and eat (and mimosa all day on the porch…)
It was the most fun and least stressful day ever.
My friends and family still can’t stop commenting about how they have never seen me so calm and not caring about a thing.
And I agree….. I don’t think I’ve ever been so chill in my life either!
Truly….. nothing was different : acting like idiots all day.

oh….. and my shirt before the monogrammed shirt…..
my favorite t-shirt in the world
damn straight you are!!!!
It’s the greatest thing to have all your sister and mom and best friends getting ready at your house and getting all pretty and everyone being in your favorite spot.
Some of these are out of order, as some are from iPhones, but you get the point.
my brother in law was put to work, as usual, so he stopped by in the morning with the snacks and drinks for us.
everyone verged in the best spot in the house most of the day.
my mom spruced the house up as usual with beautiful flowers all over.
The best detail of my dress :
the blue heart from my dad’s dress shirt.
My dad passed away suddenly when I was in college, so this was another way to have him close.
and I was so lucky to get what I had always hoped for :
walking down the front stairs of our house in my wedding dress.
……… more to come…….
