Wedding Retrospective, Part I

yeah, yeah. Me and my multiple-part-postings. But I adored my wedding and so I will spend as much time as I want remembering it. :-p Good news for you, though: I decided to do mostly photos and captions, instead of stories. So they will be short reads.

It's hard to figure out where to start when I remember the wedding. I'm inclined to think back to the engagement and the planning... but we were engaged for over two years, so that's a lot of ground to cover. Then I think, "maybe I'll start with the dress shopping," but that's mostly boring, as there weren't any "maybe" dresses in my experience. Plus, the day I bought my gown was kinda a fluke... I was at a warehouse in Tampa with my camp friends. So, I guess I'll start with the celebrations... they began about two months before the wedding, with the Bridal Shower (they actually began in November, but I only have one picture from the Engagement Party and it's not very good).

Tori hosted the bridal shower, and it had an Aladdin theme and a moons-and-stars cake. From Left: Nana, Kyla, my mom, me, Aunt Sue, Jennopening giftsI love my bake-and-fill. It works out awesome for ice cream cakes. :)

Then, in early April, I had my bachelorette party. We all met up in Orlando on a Friday night to go to Tony and Tina's Wedding in Orlando. It's a dinner show that ran off-Broadway for YEARS. I had a delightful time, and was really, REALLY excited about it. Plus, Tori had let them know we were a bachelorette party, so I got to dance with the groom and stuff. And the bride asked my opinion on what to do about a maid-of-honor situation, and it was a lot of fun. From there, we played some games in the suite we had across the street, then headed into Old Town for a bit of dancing.

The next day I did my Bridesmaid Luncheon at the White Wolf Cafe in Orlando. It was a nice place, and everyone enjoyed their gifts.

this was before Heather was a bridesmaid (if that doesn't make sense to you, don't worry about it), so she took the photo. the best group shot we have, even though my eyes are closed. And just pretend Megan is Kyla, LoL. From Left: Kristina, Amy, me, Megan, Tori, Heather
