Wedding Week

Better late than never right?! Truth is, the camera card that held these pictures was left in Florida after we came back from our honeymoon, and I didn't get it back until about a month ago. Saturday marks 8 months since I married that handsome hunk of mine. (I know, 8 months already?!!) Time is flyyyying. And I am loving every minute of this awesome gift, that is marriage. :)

Here's some random pictures from the week of the wedding... 
For weeks, I was walking around my house in my wedding shoes trying to break them in. How awful would it be to get blisters on your wedding day from unworn shoes?! Yikes! 
 The girls had their bridesmaid shoes sent to my house, so when they arrived we put on our shoes and walked around for a while. ;)

The amazing, Anna Beasley. I tell her all the time that without her, my wedding would have been crazy! Not only did she make 8, oooh so delicious, cheesecakes for the rehearsal dinner, She also single handily made almost all of the bridesmaids dresses. I don't know much about sewing, but pretty much, I gave Anna a dress that I had found at J Crew online, and she recreated it, with no pattern. I don't think that's very easy to do. :) You cannot tell the difference what-so-ever between the J crew dress and the Anna dress. Their incredible. Not to mention she also created her own pattern for the adorable flower girl dresses as well.
Anyways, on with my bragging about Anna-- She also sewed a last minute vest and tie for our ring bearer a few days before the wedding, made a runner for the unity candle table the night before the wedding, did the bridesmaids hair, and did my hair for the wedding (which was also a completely last minute decision, I'm talking like 3 days before the wedding!) Seriously, I have no clue what I would have done without this girl! 
 oooooh my mouth is watering just looking at this picture! Yummy! 
My soon-to-be (now) sisters, who also helped with the cheesecakes. :)
"Many hands make light work" So true! I am so thankful for the help of these awesome people who helped with the cutting, tying and assembling of our programs! 

 Friday Morning, we had the bridesmaid luncheon at the Country Club of Orlando. (Reception site)

Cute little bridal cookies! :) 
 The Mother's 
 Bridal Party
 Then Friday night, the Rehearsal and rehearsal diner!

 These are those incredible cheesecakes I was talking about! 

 My handsome man. And his last night as my fiance. :)
 We played the shoe game. And got a little spending money for our honeymoon for every question we answered correct. :)

 Prayer time
 My cousin, and Matron of Honor, Katie. :)
 My favorite boys.. My cousin, Daniel, Andrew, and brother Bryce. :)
 My Family. ;)

I'm hoping to blog some photos of our home, and life since this wonderful week soon...So stay tuned. :)
