This is my post about our getting ready! I don't really have much to say about this stage, but I will make a few comments.
First, THANK YOU Birds and Coffee Design for capturing this part for us! I was definately rushing once I realized things were starting to go behind time, and somehow you still managed to get pictures of the little details that I didn't even realize you took pictures of...like all the jewelry shots! Anna, you are a good kind of sneaky!
Next, I want to say that getting ready is impossible without the help of your bridesmaids. Thanks guys for helping me take my dress on and off when I realized I'd forgotten my waist corset. Thanks Kelsey for making me a sandwich. Thanks Sherry for all your silly faces that I've never seen you make before...it definately made things less stressful! And thank you Deana for staying up with me until 2 am the night before, and working so hard the day of to make sure it all got done! You ladies are priceless friends!

|Gotta love my ladies for helping with the veil!|
|Pearls from my mom on my 21st birthday...oh, and the engagement ring!|
|Earrings I borrowed from my Mom.|
|The stone in my necklace is my "Something Blue."|
It is actually one of my Great Great Aunt's old necklaces.
|Not sure if you can tell, but Tyler's tie has a squirrel pattern on it. |
I love squirrels.
I made him choose that tie because it has squirrels.
|Guys tying ties.|
|Look at that Best Man being a man and holding the groom's jacket. Good job, Louis!|
I'd have to say all in all, our getting ready went extremely smooth. To my knowledge, no one had a bad hair day. Everyone looked beautiful/handsome. The electricity didn't go out (this happened at one of my friends weddings, and I was worried.) We ran a little bit late, but we planned to be late anyway since our venue was in a difficult location and we expected people to be lost and running late.
It was all quite perfect, really!
