|At my bridal shower cracking up|
Our wedding was AWESOME! Yes, I was slightly irritated by the fact that some of the 7/100 details I cared about didn't happen (or when after Rashan & I walked out for a moment alone, I looked around and said "Who left a bottle of water next to the flowers!?" and Rashan said, "That's mine." What?? LOLOL) but overall, I LOVED OUR DAY!!!!
Rashan came to see me when he got into town Thursday and it was AWESOME!! I was so excited to see him! Actually it was 12:02 a.m. on Friday. I had to kick him out after an hour and a half because I was so sleepy and there was still plenty of stuff to do!! Friday morning I was awakened four hours after I went to sleep by my mom's grass man CUTTING THE GRASS AT 6:45 AM!!!! I WAS HOT!!! What fresh heck? There is absolutely NO reason to cut the grass on the day of my wedding or at that time EVER!! Stace and I woke up and started our daily trash talk and stayed awake. I had breakfast courtesy of mom (bacon, eggs, cheese grits & toast) and decided I wanted to be a bridezilla for the first and only time. But it's not in my nature so it didn't work. Bummer.
Stace was AWESOME!!! There was a point during the pre-wedding detail questions that I was able to say, " I don't care, make an executive decision" and know that she would do exactly what I needed her to and that she would make it amazing! She helped decide the altar arrangements and did all the flower arranging.

My eyes matched my earrings and everyone was so excited! It looked AWESOME!! I was wincing getting my hair done. My sister shoved every manner of pin directly into my scalp. My photographer made me take that shot of the dress on the hanger before I put it on. I never understand that shot. But he had me take a bunch of shots I didn't understand at the time and then afterward, either everyone else or I was like, OMG that's AWESOME!! This post is a mix of his pics, mine, and pics Stace, my dad, sister or Rashan took.
Then I put my dress on. I was okay when they got it on, especially after no one could get the buttons buttoned. LOL It took Rashan a good five minutes after the wedding. I was like, "Can I get a magazine or something?" LOLOLOL
Everyone staring at me like it was the most amazing thing ever was making me feel like I was gonna cry so I yelled, "Stop staring at me!" They all made up things to do. LOL. Except then my SIL kept staring at me going, "Awwwww!" Ma'am! I'm trying NOT to cry. Thaaaanks!
My mom was running around trying to organize and host. At one point I was like tell her to come in here and let somebody else do that. I think she enjoyed herself, though. She didn't cry which shocked us all but she said we cried enough for everybody. LOLOL Also did I mention we had a photographer (who did an AMAZING job!!) & a videographer & our videographer had 3 cameras set up? AWESOME!! I LOVE THAT OUR WEDDING WAS A THREE-CAMERA SHOOT!!!! FILMMAKER IN THE HOUSE!!!
When my dad walked into the room before he walked me down the aisle, I was like, OMG! I almost lost it again. Then he said something ridiculous and I started laughing.
There was a kids camp going on at the church so there were random adults walking around telling me I looked great. One girl also said, "I'm jealous." Ma'am... not the time. So ridiculous! I felt very conspicuous walking around like that. (Also, afterward the kids were in the family life center as I walked through and a little girl did a double take at me. It was SO CUTE!!!)
And we had to take a self-shot!
Then we had our Mexican fiesta!!! Y'all. The food was FABULOUS!! We had delicious guac and delicious chicken nachos for an appetizer.
Then we had two kinds of enchiladas for our entree, endless margaritas to drink and to finish it, we had cuatro leches cake topped with fresh whipped cream and a strawberry.
You know we don't like cake... SO GOOD! We both liked the cake. Yay!!! :) Rashan was quite impressed with my decision to have us eat there. Wheeeee! Overall, I'm overjoyed to be Rashan's wife!!
GREAT START TO FOREVER!!
I love my husband! But I'm still not joining that fb group... LOL
