To me, the getting ready was the most nervewrecking part. Why you ask? Well because to me, out of everything in the wedding, the most important part was how he would look at me. My favorite part of the wedding is not just looking at the bride, but the grooms expression when he sees the woman he is going to spend the rest of his life with all dressed up, walking towards him, ready to share a lifetime together. That part simply takes my breath away. Needless to say, since it's my favorite part, I wanted him to be blown away the moment he saw me, I didn't care what anyone else thought other than that man standing at the alter.
I must admit I did cry in the morning because I saw my face that morning. I felt gross, pale, racoon eyes, my hair was a mess! Thank God for my great makeup artist, Amy Palma and my wonderful hairdresser, Jen.
Another important part of the wedding to me was the photography. Over details and the rest, the photographs are the one thing you get to take with you from that wedding day. It's what tells the story of that day to your children and your grandchildren, and that to me, means the world. I couldn't have found one better, thank you Manolo.
Ok, so I now invite you to get ready with me:
My mommy putting my earrings on <3 This was a picture that was really important to her and I'm glad it was. Don't know what I would have done without her!
My sis helping me put on my shoes. I'm a sucker for colorful wedding shoes.
My mommy putting on the garter for me.
With my maid of honor (sister in blue) and bridesmaid (sister in law in green) or as the photographer called them, Jenny green & Jenny Blue.
The photographer threw some in of my hubby for free cause he knew I really wanted them. Thanks!
