UPDATED with Pictures- ...Finally married!
Posted: Nov 1, 2007 2:48 PM

-Girls....I updated my website Photo Galleries with some candid pictures from the big day.  See the link in my signature.  I hope you take a look and wish you all the best on YOUR wedding days!

 

So my wedding day has come and gone (last Friday)....and it was absolutely what I had hoped for!  We started with a small luncheon with my mom, sisters, 2 aunts, g'mother, MIL, GMIL and SIL's.  We drank champagne, ate shrimp & grits (delicious!), and prayed that the rain would clear up.  After that, my daughter and I went to have our hair done, and by the time we were finished, I saw blue sky!  Then my mom, sisters, and I headed to the ceremony/reception site to set up, which took no time at all.  My mother had made all the centerpieces, as well as the bouquets, corsages, and bout's....they were all gorgeous.  She also made my dress and veil...which I have no words for how fabulous they turned out.  Our ceremony was at 6pm in this tiny little chapel but it was so personal and intimate, having our family and close friends surrounding us.  My BIL played acoustic guitar for the processional and recessional....Kevin and I spent some time under a brick gazebo eating dinner while our families went up to the main house for the reception.  More guests arrived at 8pm and we were announced soon after that, where our parents stood with us for a toast offered by Kevin's brother at the entrance.  Our first dance was to "Sweet Thing" by Van Morrison, my dad and I to "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You) by James Taylor, and then Kevin and my 13yo daughter to "Tupelo Honey" by Van Morrison.  The rest of the night was a blur of dancing, laughing, drinking, and an all-around good time.  We had a candy buffet that was a big hit, and the food was delicious....and I really didn't have any complaints.  I hope all of you enjoy your day as much as I did mine!  The only picture I've seen so far is posted in my albums, but I'll try to share more as they are sent to me.

Thanks for all the thoughtful comments...I can't believe the day is over, perhaps because it wasn't the stress-inducing event that I keep hearing about.  You just need to enjoy the moments and not get caught up in the production aspect of your wedding.  I can't wait to see more pictures....but I'm starting to think no one had a damn camera because I haven't seen any except the one in my album :-)  Our photographer shoud have them on his website by the end of next week, so I'll keep you posted.  As for the candy buffet, it turned out great and we'll hopefully get some pictures of that from the photographer.  We used clear glass containers of different sizes and shapes, filled them with bulk candy from www.groovycandy.com (very helpful people), and bought little metal scoops from BB&B- 3 for $4.  Then set out small brown paper bags for people to fill themselves; they were stamped by my helpful twin sister with "Trick or Treat, Love is Sweet" since it was a few days before Halloween.  Also the main reception was a dessert and drinks event, thus all the mentioning of "sweet."
