7/7/11- Pre Wedding (Picture Overload!)

Happy Friday!! I hope all of you had a good week and are looking forward to a fun filled weekend!

Let's start the wedding picture posts off with the pre-wedding festivities. We decided to have cocktail hour before the wedding. It honestly had to do with getting the lighting right for our outdoor wedding. My hubby was at the entire cocktail hour, while I arrived at the end. We never actually saw each other there though! Crazy!

I got ready at one of the beach house's that Gabe's family had rented. My sister and I had a fabulous time getting ready together. My beautiful mother was also there to help me get dressed.

With my sister and my mom. They are both so beautiful!

The best MOH ever!

This greeted our guests at the Beach Club. My cousin Meagan is so creative!

At cocktail hour, our guests were served beer and wine, an assortment of fruits and cheese's, and crab cakes. (yum!) I stopped by to have a glass of wine before the ceremony. 
I loved how our tables turned out!

Loved my cake!
My cake was three tiers. The bottom layer was butter cake and the top two were red velvet. Buttercream icing was used. 

Gabe's cake was of course chocolate with chocolate icing. Both cakes tasted so good! 

My bouquet!!!

My book girls! I used to babysit both of these girls. They look so grown up!

Napkins for the bar and cake tables. I ordered these from and they turned out great!

A box of mints at each place setting

My something old and something borrowed was this cameo that we pinned on to my bouquet. My  mom used this at her wedding too!

My handsome little brother who was also the Best Man!

Next week I'll have pictures of the ceremony and reception!!

Have a great weekend ya'll!!!

They're Here, They're Here!!!

Ladies and gents, my wedding pictures are finally in my possession!!! They turned out amazing! I'm so happy with them! Here's a peek!!

I'll slowly be posting the rest over the next few weeks!

My Favorite Time of Day...

My absolute favorite time of day is my quiet time in the morning with my hot mug of green tea.

 Regardless of what time my morning starts, I cherish this peaceful, alone time. It allows me to just stop and take it all in before the day get's crazy. It's also the time I use to catch up on all of the wonderful blogs I read!

Seriously, don't ever ask me to give up my morning cup of tea!!

What's your favorite time of day?
