Before our guests arrived, the bridal party took over the beach at the Surf Club for some quick bridal-party portraits. There wasn’t much time, but we managed to get some quality photos of our good looking bunch.
I was also really happy we were able to get in some sassy photos of the girls.
Before I knew it, guests were starting to arrive and I was forced to go hide out inside. I only escaped once when we noticed that some of the bridesmaids’ bouquets were starting to go limp. I scouted out the surrounding area outside our venue and noticed a garden across the street. Much to the horror of my bridesmaids (and to the glee of strangers having picnics near our venue) I escaped out the front door and sprinted to the garden. One of the highlights of my day was hearing strangers cheering and yelling out “It’s a runaway bride!” as I bolted out the door.

I seriously could not stand still while we waited for the ceremony to begin, so escaping for a hot second and giving myself another job was much needed. Without my last minute “chores” I honestly might have exploded from excitement!
