THE WEDDING- morning of

posted by on 2012.09.05, under Wedding

The night before my wedding was exceptionally memorable as my bridesmaids stayed with me at The London Hotel as we reminisced, laughed & talked about the good ol’ days!

The next day we woke up bright & early at around 6 am to get our hair & makeup done by the amazing Yuri Sinata. The inspiration behind the hair & makeup was simply my “everyday” look, but enhanced & completely sweat proof! It was important for me to look like “me”, so we went with dewy skin, a slight smoky eye, and my signature bright lips by Maybelline in Very Cherry . As for the hair we stuck with a soft, romantic, & slightly tousled updo. A few weeks before Yuri treated, colored, & added some subtle highlights to my hair to add more depth & definition on the day of.

My morning was complete when my beautiful mommy joined us at the hotel.

Yuri also did my mom’s hair & makeup, doesn’t she look stunning??

With my Maid Of Honor, my little sister, Janey who flew out from New York to stand next to me on this special day.

I wanted my bridesmaids to look elegant and romantic with a bit of sparkle. I was afraid that I wasn’t going to be able to find anything AMAZING for the girls, so I actually  began the search for THEIR dress way before I started my own!  Thankfully Mary Me Bridal  Boutique had a  huge selection of amazing gowns, and I was able to find this gorgeous draped chiffon dress!

 And we added some sparkle from Kirsten Kuehn to finish off their look! Kirsten customized these beautiful diamond sashes for my bridesmaids to enjoy! (KKD also customized my ring pillow, candle holder, brooch, & garter!)

These crystal strappy Gucci Stilettos were love at first sight. You just KNOW when you find “The One.”

Kept the jewelry very minimal & simple with these amazing pieces from Charriol.

My bridesmaids- Janey, Annie, Linette, Sara (mommasohn), Michelle, & Caroline mean the world to me.

” Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget.”

 I surprised the girls with a custom monogram ring with their initials by Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry. Although I have my wedding ring on one finger, on the other I have my friendship ring with my girls…this is a small token of my love, loyalty, & commitment to my best friends.I’ve been obsessed with Jennifer Zuener’s jewelry for quite some time now, and i couldnt think of a better gift…..of course in a macaron trinket!

Spent the last few minutes in tears, laughter, & prayer with my mommy as she sent me off to go meet Allen for our First Look….

Surpsingly I was calm all day up until this moment. When it was finally “time” to see Allen all of a sudden my body was tingly and I had butterflies in my stomache. It was then that it hit me, that I was about to marry the man of my dreams….

To Be Continued……
