Morning of our big day!

 Today’s post is strictly a picture post. My last post was dedicated to our engagement story through a linkup so I thought I would continue with the theme of our Love Story. Here are all my favorite pictures of the morning of preparations before our Wedding Ceremony.

(Photos taken by: TFL Studios – see engagement picture post to find out about our amazing photogs)   

We were married on August 13th, 2011 on a beautiful (SUNNY!!!!) summer day. My husband basically took over our home with his groomsmen, so I decided that my maids and I would sleep at the hotel where we were going to be having our Reception. My mom booked the bridal suite, along with an adjoining room for my girls and I to sleep there the night before & to use that morning to get ready. The room had a large living room/area that was perfect to use the morning of. It was such a great setup!

My hubby (to-be at the time) had given his sister a special gift to give me the morning of. I had done the same and given it to my brother-in-law to give him the morning of as well. He got me 3 charms for my Pandora charm bracelet (given to me at my bridal shower by my lovely MOH and friend Sylvie). He got me my birth stone, a heart for our wedding day & a letter ‘J’ for my new last name. I was so excited & touched by his gift.
