Before we party it up at the reception, I’m going to step back and throw out the details thus far. I always appreciated a good detail post while planning, and our photographer took so many pretty shots, so why not?
First up, my bride button I wore while getting ready. It was given to me by my female co-workers at my “corporate bridal shower,” along with a VS gift card (this was as racy as it ever got for me, believe it or not). I was really touched that they remembered me, as we engineers tend to be rather distant when it comes to discussing things outside of electricity and numbers.
Leftover water bottles from our out of town bags.
My pearl earrings and necklace gifted from my grandmother. The necklace is from the now-just-a-memory Mervyn’s, and the earrings (I think) from QVC. She loves home shopping!
And a veil made from her own veil pattern.
A DIY hair flower. (One of the hot glued beads fell off the center, if you can tell. I’d recommend sewing it down if you make your own!)
My bouquet and a pearl bracelet, gifted from a friend at Bible Study.
Sister Sew’s bouquet.

Mr. Sew’s boutonniere, made by his great aunt.
His homemade cufflinks.
And everyone’s cufflinks with design of their choice. (Seriously, this is one of my absolute favorite pictures. I love all these guys, especially the one with the ring on his finger!)
And a baby pineapple plant that was growing in the middle of our ceremony venue. SO cute!

Up next, we’ll get our party on at the reception!

Our wedding week in review:
- We took care of some last minute DIY details, and officialized everything.
- We vacationed with our out-of-towners, and threw a yummy welcome beach brunch.
- Mr. Sew saluted an angry dragon during our wedding rehearsal, and we sniffed at our dinner.
- Wal-Mart crashed my bachelorette.
- The women magically transformed, and Mr. Sew tied me into our dress.
- There was a windy photo shoot on the beach, and then we hung out at the chapel in flat shoes.
- We marched to the altar and got married.
- Everyone was camera-happy.
