#MeetTheMendelsons - Getting Ready

The wedding is over, we have honeymooned and the pictures are in….Time to blog about the wedding.
I can’t even begin to put into words how perfect the day was. Perfect weather (minus the wind that kept us on our toes), everything I dreamed in my head was executed to perfection by my mother and my friends. It was PERFECT.

The house had two amazing areas for the bridal party to get ready – the man cave – with a bar, pinball machines and tvs and the beautiful bride’s suite with amazing windows and a huge mirror. 

Eric and I choose not to see each other the day of until the first look – we had some close calls, and for a while it seems like every time I walked into a room I was darting back out and sending someone in to shoo him away. Finally I parked it upstairs and let him be :-D

Now for the pics First up the guys – I had reminded them all that there would be no staggering down the aisle – and if they did drink too much, they hid it well :-D

I got Eric and LCD screen for his GoPro,I knew this would be good for his diving on the honeymoon. It was my back up gift – my first gift was back ordered….I got it the day we got home from the honeymoon – fantastic.

Gunner and his daddy

I love this one of G-man and Uncle Eric playing

They played and waited until I was ready for the first look.

Eric worked on his note to me before the wedding – I was writing it the day of…talk about role reversal.

 That was fun to brush the next day
Sweet June was 2 weeks old - such a good girl

Eric gave me a necklace with Enzo's paw print and a long sweet note

one thing mom and I didn’t do was practice getting in the dress without destroying hair – so we got recruits to help!

This is my excited face - the "its real" face

By the point I knew we were behind schedule and I was ready to see my dad and then get to Eric. I was a bundle of nerves and getting super anxious to see him.

And that is where I will leave you…

  3. SO excited to have all of your photos! Is it awesome reliving the day all over again? I lost the card I had for my husband on the morning of our wedding, so I had to write another one as soon as I got to the venue, so I feel you on the last minute thing ;)
