Goin' to the Chapel...Part 3: Getting Ready!

Alright lovelies, here is the 3rd part of of our getting married blog posts (are you tired of me yet?).  These are pictures of T and I getting ready to walk down the aisle - these are some of my favorite pictures from the wedding.  Mostly I think because I don't remember much about getting ready.  I just remember being anxious!  

I might have been nervous, but I didn't go hungry - Look at this beautiful spread!  One of my dear friend's mothers made every bit of this delicious food.  We also had mimosas, so that helped calm my pre-wedding jitters.

My grandmother watching all the madness.

Finally, it was time to put on the dress!

My seriously gorgeous mother!
I'd say, I clean up nicely!  Ha!
My flowers were (in my humble opinion) so beautiful - Our florist/caterer, Leon, was too fabulous.  Can you imagine making food for 400 people and all the flowers, without breaking a sweat?  I mean, he is the definition of awesome!
I bought my dress at the Gown Boutique in Charleston - I knew exactly what I wanted and only tried on 3 dresses!  I knew I wanted lace and an open back, so this was an easy decision!  Plus, I've watched way too many episodes of Say Yes to the Dress!

How beautiful are my bridesmaids?  Almost all of them were blond!  

Lots of laughter - it was a great day!
Over on the other side of town, T was getting ready too!  T is a BIG hunter (I mean, have you seen all the deer in our house?!?), so for his wedding gift, I bought him a new shotgun.  The photographer caught the look on his face when his best friend brought it out - he looks like like..."what in the world?"

Can you tell we are in the South?  Everyone had to take a look!
Time for pictures...
Everyone on The Miss Anne - hunting buggy named after the owner's wife.  Start move on his part!

One of my favorites of the guys!
Almost time!
Back at our house, we were still waiting!
and waiting...
and waiting some more - I felt like we waited FOREVER!  It's funny to think about it now because I feel like it went by so fast, but looking at these pictures reminded me how long I felt like the day dragged on...

Alright, finally, time to head to the church!
At the church, everyone was getting ready and putting on the final touches..

I love this picture of my parents!

Then it was showtime!  

Well, that's all for now - I told y'all I had a lot of pictures!

Beautiful pictures! So funny, I wore a very similar wedding dress when I got married and I did green bridesmaid dresses too! They were long and darker, but looks like we have similar style! You looked amazing!
