Wedding: The Girls Get Ready

A few wedding photos… just for fun. All photos are courtesy of LifeFusion Photography, our amazing wedding photographers!! I will periodically be posting a few shots since I get emails every week requesting wedding recaps! Thanks for your interest in our wedding- it is fun to share!

The book PB made for me as a wedding present. It had everything from photos to emails to text conversations we had. It is incredible.


He even documented the big fall of 2008 ha!


He also sent this gorgeous arrangement up to my room. It was breathtaking.


My amazing shoes!


My engagement ring. I love it so much.


My sister in law Shawna had fun on my laptop, and I love that my laptop case matches the girls’ dresses.


My gorgeous cousin Amara. My friend Lauren made the shirts for all the girls! The earrings were by Swarovski and were part of their bridesmaid gifts.


Loco, smiling as always. She and Pat (her longtime bf) just got engaged! Auguri!


I wore my mom’s diamond set (except for the ring). I didn’t really want to wear a necklace with my dress but this set is so special to me, and I was so happy to wear it on my wedding day.


My friend Kassiane did my hair and a few bridesmaids’ hair as well, and my cousin Stephanie did the other half. It was so fun having such close people with us that day!


I ordered a special lunch up to our room so that no one would forget to eat. We had grilled vegetable sandwiches, salad, bottled water and sparkling water…


And Prosecco, gift from Dadri.


My hairpiece. I love it.


My sister in law Adrina couldn’t decide which shoes to wear to the reception: cowboy boots or punky sneaks!



Lynne, Adrina, and Loco:


In the last few weeks before the wedding we decided to hire a day of coordinator. Luckily, my friend Amy’s sister Lisa wanted the job! She did an amazing job, and again, it was so nice having a friend there. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator on the East Coast, please shoot me an email. You want Lisa. She was amazing.


My cousin and made of honor, Wanie:


The ring bearer pillow. I made this!


My finished hair style.


Dadri & Lynne, after too much Prosecco? I am not sure what is going on here!


My dress wanted a photo shoot too.

All my girls.


My makeup is done… time to get dressed!!!



My gorgeous flower girl Josie looking at my dress. I will have to give her a framed copy of this on her wedding day.. one day!


My dress was about 11 lbs, and it was not easy to move around in. I am lucky I had so many bridesmaids to help me get dressed.

Adrina gave me my something blue, an evil eye to protect me!

My auntie Grace was the only auntie to see me before church. I am so happy she came to visit! Isn’t she stunning?


At the time Adrina was putting my mom’s jewelry on me.

Auntie Grace posed for a quick photo with me before it was time for us to head out!


I was so excited I was shaking, grinning like a fool, and squealing now and then.


We all squeezed in the elevator, and were on our way for some pre ceremony shots in the lobby of the hotel.


At this point I remember thinking that I couldn’t WAIT to see PhillyBoy, and also wondered if my eye makeup looked okay. Funny how I was thinking about something so important and something that didn’t really matter at the same time…


I hope you enjoyed the recap of the girls getting ready on our wedding day. I can’t believe it has already been almost 5 months since our wedding!
Have you always wondered what I eat day to day, how I met PhillyBoy, why I am so tan, or something else? Following my friend Jessica’s lead in something that looks like a lot like fun, I have created a FormSpring to allow you to ask me any question you want anonymously. Just click here, write your question, and click on submit. I will try and answer as many questions as possible!
