Hey there, everyone! Yesterday was our one month anniversary—and we’ve had quite the month! We went on an amazing honeymoon, bought a house, celebrated my birthday, and started the oh-so-fun moving process. It’s been a whirlwind.
Even better—the last night of our honeymoon (in the romantic airport hotel), we got an email from Caili. Guess who’s got pictures! We were so impressed by how quick she was, and I’m ready to get rolling on our recaps. I’ve got a few last projects to talk about too, so I’ll probably mix a few of those in with the recaps.
Hive, you haven’t “officially” met my two best girls standing up with me yet, so I’m here to remedy that! (I didn’t actually introduce you to them in the bridal fair post, so I’m not counting that!)
First of all, we have MOH Bestie M:
Just another awesome day wine tasting in Napa!
I’ve known Bestie M since junior high, but we were arch nemeses back then. We shared a best friend, and the third girl purposefully pitted us against each other so we never ended up being friends. However, we reconnected via Friendster (we’re old!) in our early 20s and became FAST FRIENDS. We’ve been super tight ever since, and she is truly one of the best women I know. I’m SO lucky to have her in my life, and am so thankful she is able to share my wedding experience with me.
I apologise for being absent, guys! Mr. Big and I just celebrated our halfiversary, and it’s been pretty hectic here! But I will get back to regularly posting.
We exchanged rings, kissed, and generally loved up, but our ceremony wasn’t finished! As Mr. Big and I looked at each other gleefully, Celebrant J signalled for the music to start, indicating the signing of the marriage documents.
I would now like to invite our witnesses, [BMan Hunter] and [MoH M&Ms], to join with us in signing the official marriage documents. Once these documents have been signed, Grant and Eileen will come back before you, where I will present them with their Certificate of Marriage, and officially introduce them to you.
Details are a double-edged sword. On one hand, “attention to detail” is something to be admired. You have to hand it to a couple who goes the extra mile to make their bash sing from head to toe. On the other hand, “the devil is in the details,” and if you think long and hard about every little piece of the puzzle you’ll drive yourself up the wall.
I just used a dozen idioms in that opening paragraph and I’m not sure that I know what all of them mean.
Well lovely followers, we are back from our wonderful, fabulous, relaxing honeymoon! I can’t wait to share some photos and stories with you soon, but I wanted to back up just a step here and do my dress reveal! I know this post is kind of after the fact…I meant to set it to post the day after the wedding, but I just ran out of time! So, sorry for the delay but here it is for anyone who is still interested…
If you recall from before, I bought my dress from Marges Bridal House, the same place where my mother bought her wedding dress 35 years ago. It was definitely a dress fit for a queen (at least that’s how it made me feel). The designer is Davinci Bridal (although, I can’t remember the style number).
