11/8/11


My friends Randi and Rosie did my make-up and nails at my mom's house. I read a little handmade card that Mike gave me that morning at breakfast. I got zipped into a pretty dress, and met my husband-to-be under a big, beautiful tree.

Little memories that are not captured by these photos: A few days before the wedding, walking around the park that I went to almost daily as a child and picking this tree as the first look spot. The hook and eye breaking on my dress and my sister-in-law to the rescue with a needle and thread (had to text Mike and tell him to hang tight under that big, beautiful tree!) Having trouble walking through the grass in my high heels and heavy dress. The butterflies in my stomach as I walked up to Mike....

Tomorrow: Ceremony!
