    General advice:

    The mentality of "the ceremony is for you, the reception is for your guests" is seriously the best thing I learned on this site.

    Just roll with whatever happens, like having to get married under a giant leaking jellyfish (more on that later).

    The good:

    Honestly, pretty much everything! All our vendors were fantastic, we ran ahead of schedule all day, and we had so much fun! Everything that "went wrong" was small, and most of it was quickly fixed.

    The bad:

    It rained, almost all day. Oh well, can't control the weather. We did have a good indoor backup option, and were able to get some pictures outside, so it was fine in the end. If the worst thing that happened was the weather, we had a great day!

    Onto the pictures...

    Getting ready. We had HMUAs come to us at the hotel, which was so nice! We had food delivered for breakfast and lunch, and even had some time to relax between HMU finishing and photos starting.

    PJs were a great call, we were all so comfy. I actually want more pairs of them.

    Finishing touches. The necklace has been worn by every woman on my mom's side for her wedding since my great-great-great grandma's wedding.

    Thanks everyone! Some BP shots, one featuring our double-duty wedding party member. He stood on my side for the ceremony, but went to the bachelor party and got ready with the guys. He was also in some pictures with me and the BMs, and some with H and the GM. H and I are both equally close with him, so we both wanted to include him in "our part" of the day.

    H and his GM, and the best candid of H and his BM.

    My family, H's family, both families (ft. our brother's girlfriends- they were both really happy we included them in some pictures)
