looks like a pool right? that my dear friends is the beautiful ocean right outside our over water bungalow in Bora Bora. ♥
so...I am trying to get my life back together. It's weird not coming to work with my wedding planner (the husband bought me this one when we got engaged). I feel naked. It's weird not having 20 meetings a week and 70 people to call back about our wedding. My desktop at work looks like wedding images threw up all over it. I don't have the heart yet to take down the "on my honeymoon sign" in front of my office. Our house looks like a crate & barrel maze. The 2nd bedroom....well let's just say it's a playground for our cats. We have invitations, stamps, rsvp's, books, mail, gifts and junk everywhere. I mean everywhere. Where do we start? Well we did start with our Tahiti laundry since it smelled like we brought Bora Bora home. Seems dreamy but think old wet dirty clothes...mmmmm
We really can't believe it's all over. ALL meaning the wedding festivities we've been planning foorrrever<--sandlot voice. (only 8 months but that's a life time) The honeymoon we have dreamt of actually happened. It really happened! It was insanely magical! The showers, bachelor/ette parties, the rehearsal, the night before, the day of, the wedding and the honeymoon. It all happened! wowzaaaa! Now i'm writing about it and I've been a wife for 18 days. wowowow!!!!
I can't wait to finally start sharing our pictures with you all! Our wedding pics should be in soon and we are dying to see them! I can't wait to share all the DIY lovelies we did for our wedding day along with the songs we chose, the stuff we wore..etcetera etcetera.
I don't know about the married peeps out there but one of our favorite parts of the whole process was the rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal was fun and uuuubbber emotional since we were marking our every move for the BIG day but the rehearsal dinner was so nice. Our closest family and friends, dinner, drinks and the most incredible speeches ever. Our family and friends said some of the sweetest things to us, joked around with us and even sang to us. I brought Brandon's grooms cake out to the rehearsal so we can share with our greatest and dearest. (it may or may not have looked like a kid decorated it but everything on the cake meant something special). ♥ amazing night!
Just when you think a special day can't be topped and BAAAAAM!...our wedding day! It was a dream come true! really! I know everyone says that about their wedding day and that's how it should be! It's as if I was standing beside myself watching it all unfold. The planning paid off when I got to see everything come together so beautifully. I mean for those of you who have planned, you know that you don't see the final look until the day of. Sure we met with every vendor and made sure the flowers were ordered, the cake was designed, the table overlays were delivered BUT to see it all together was heaven. I really can't describe the feeling. and I will never forget it.
Brandon and I are really so blessed to have had the most amazing experience! I am so happy and honored to now call my very best friend my husband! Our wedding day was very emotional and filled with so much love. It literally makes me grin from ear to ear when I think about everything. and cry....im so emotional!!!
I promise to be a better blogger soon!
