Last I left you, I was glowing through the chaos of our room. How could I not smile? It was my wedding day!!
Of course, after almost 30 years of dressing myself, I couldn’t possibly do this alone.
It took a village to get me ready.
Mama Peep took on the challenge of getting me into my dress:
Didn’t I say getting dressed was a challenge? Mama Peep struggled for a good 10 minutes to get the bow and my Grandmother’s brooch just right on my dress:
All the while, I was struggling to try and remain calm (yo, we were still running late):
Again, the fabulous wonders of photography—I look perfectly centered and calm.
One more task for Mama Peep:
Come on Bridesmaid J, I need your help.
I felt useless not being able to put on my own shoes.
I think if I had asked Bridesmaid J in 7th Grade to put on my shoes, she would have asked if my arms were broken! But there she was, all dressed up, helping me to look my best:
Right at that moment, I had two special guests.
And Papa Peep:
For a man who doesn’t stop talking, he’s never looked more lost for words.
At this point, my nerves started to get the best of me. I struggled big time to do such a simple task.
Can you see the nervousness in my face?
At least it was all starting to come together.
And with one final touch from Bridesmaid Kat:
And a little lipstick:
Oh, wait, you want cheese? I can do cheese:
Finally, I was ready for my close up:
Dare I say that I was ready to go?
Up next, me and my ladies.
As always, photos by my favorite photographer: Amanda at Blueberry Photography.
