Hello ladies!! I am back from Hawaii as of today! And after a little nap and a solid meal, I am ready to share some details from my wedding just over a week ago. Most everything worked out pretty well. There were a few hitches, but nothing too devastating. We arrived at the salon on time, and had the perfect relaxing morning as my hair and make-up was done beautifully. We arrived at the venue on time, and we began to get into our dresses. After I was in my dress, we went for the first look, and that was an amazing moment. It was just us two and the photographer, and it was so wonderful seeing my husband all dressed up and looking wonderful. It was one of the most precious moments in the whole day! Then we were able to get through all the bridal party pics and some pics with just me and my husband.

The ceremony went very well. The only thing that happened was I slipped on the rose petals. Luckily, my dad caught me and gave just enough comical relief to stop me from crying.....

    The pictures above are me and my husband before the ceremony, my flower girl and me and my sister and me.

    The ceremony was over before I knew it and it was beautiful and exactly how we wanted it.

    The reception went pretty well. We couldn't have the wine slushies because of a misunderstanding in preparing them. But, we hosted the wine and they covered up the slushie machine, so no one knew the difference. The slideshow I made didn't work either. But, the dj found an engagement pic from facebook and put it up and it looked really great!

    The photo booth was a hit!!! Everyone did it! Even my 80 and 90 year old grandmothers. I also got a usb of all the pictures taken at the photo booth and they are fantastic! I think it was one of the best things to add to my reception!!

    Dinner was delicious and everyone loved the cupcakes. People had many cupcakes, and we still had left overs!!

    It is so nice to be married! We had a fabulous time in Hawaii and got some really nice sun tans/burns!
