I am so incredibly excited to share these! My photographer had 60 photos in our sneak peek and I'm so ecstatic to share with all of you wonderful ladies!!

Thank you all for the amazing advice and support each of you have given! Our day was truly amazing and perfect in so many ways! We had a few hiccups...but I knew that I just had to let the day come as it may.

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day...it was windy as all might h*ll but the photogs and videographers said it made for great images and footage! And judging by the photos, I agree! I can't wait to share the video!

The entire day ran ahead of schedule, which was nice...seeing as I literally had things down to the second on my timeline for the day!

I took the advice of one of the brides on here to ride too our venue with just my mom and I'm glad I did! It was peaceful and amazing to be with her and talk about what was to come.

    When we arrived at the venue, I was able to take a second to absorb everything with my girls. I love my bridal party and was truly grateful that DH and I decided to make the choice to remove his sister from the bridal party...it would have been a very different atmosphere with her and not nearly as fun and enjoyable as it was! PICK YOUR BRIDAL PARTY WISELY!!!

    My photographers were worth every penny! DO NOT skimp on photography...as you can tell by the photos. Smiley smile

    Know that your day will have it's hiccups, but take it with a grain of salt. Things come and crap happens. I let things just roll and wouldn't have had it any other way. This was a very difficult task for me as I'm a wedding planner and a control freak. By trusting my vendors and the staff at our venue...I was able to truly enjoy my time with my husband and guests!

    Make sure you take time to be with just your husband. I pulled him aside many different times throughout the night, just to take everything in. It was some of the most memorable times of the day.

    We also chose to do first look photos. We didn't have a ton of time with the sun setting so early and it honestly calmed the nerves so much! I would HIGHLY recommend doing this.

    When you say you won't get emotional...be prepared...you probably will! I started to cry when reading my vows to my husband. I caught myself, turned to the guests and said I promised I wouldn't cry! Laughed and then pulled myself together!

    My MIL pulled the most unacceptable move she could have ever done in my book!! I will have my words with her when we get back from our honeymoon. When my mom pulled her aside to invite her to the brunch the following day...my MIL decided to take it upon herself to tell my mom some things (some of which I'm still not sure about as my mom won't tell me much until we return from our honeymoon) Either way, my mother was visibly shaken afterwards. My MOH was AMAZING...she saw I was upset, pulled me aside and instantly went to remove my mom from the situation with MIL. I did my best to brush it off and enjoy the rest of the night but I was extremely ticked.

    Your pictures are gorgeous. You were an absolutely stunning bride. I am also considering having more than one photographer can you tell me how that worked with them both being there and maybe taking photos at the same time and any more info you may offer on having more than one photographer.

    @Kasaundra S. I only had 1 photographer...it was a husband/wife team. They were amazing. The wife told us to always look at her husband.
