My precious new niece and flowergirl, Sophie Bean!
Paul sent me this video the night before our wedding.
I stayed up until 2 AM last night because I just got in the first batch of wedding photos from my amazing, ever-so-talented photographer Alex Wasilewski How could I possibly sleep knowing these were in my inbox?! There are quite a few shots I'd like to share, so I'm pacing myself. Here's Part 1, just hours before the ceremony began . . .
Most of our guests stayed elsewhere, but Paul and I wanted to spend our wedding night at the beautiful Boca Raton Resort & Spa. I had a suite for two nights. The first night I packed in all my bridesmaids and the second night, well, I kicked everyone out. I woke up like every hour on the dot. The first time, I look down at my phone and I see a text from Paul. He said: "I can't sleep. Today we're getting married!" I remember Alex Domination (bf and chef extraordinaire) finally yelling at me to get a grip and go to sleep. I tried, I really did.
My bridesmaids went above and beyond for me, so I knew I needed to do something extravagant for them to thank them for putting up with me over the last year and a half. I kicked them out (obv. my MO) and set up breakfast, their robes, mini personal champagne bottles and a few other goodies.
I had bracelets made for each girl at the Brooklyn Charm Shop in Williamsburg, so I draped them around the necks.
Jumping on the bed pic, check!
I've known most of these ladies for the majority of my life. Enormous wedding party, yes, but there was no way I was cutting this down. They've been by my side for decades.
My beautiful mother is in the middle and her sisters are at our side. I really think of them as my sisters.
Love this photo!
My friends look like they belong in a magazine.
Pretty little details . . .
Paul, my husband (still giddy saying that),
reading a note from me that came with his present.
My something borrowed was my mother's veil.
I had this handkerchief embroidered
(Inspired Stitches on Etsy) for my dad
and I gave my mom this Swarorvski crystal ring. It was the least I could do to thank them for making our wedding
the best night we ever had.
