Hitched: Behind the Scenes

On the morning of my wedding, all of the girls met in my suite to spend the day together getting ready, relaxing, and sipping on champagne. Here are some pictures from the preparations behind the scenes!

my dress, garter, and flower…love, love, love.


my “something blue”

my jewelry

Lynette, from The Bloom Room, kept the details of my bouquet a huge secret until my big day. When she surprised me with my flowers, I was literally speechless. I could not have been more excited and happy with my beautiful bouquet – full of pink hydrangeas, peonies, ranunculas, tulips, lahms ear, and more!

I really wanted to do something sweet for my parents, so I wrote them letters and had custom hankies made for each of them. They absolutely LOVED {and used} them.

The boys got ready down the hall…

Remember the burlap boutonnieres I handmade?…the guys loved them!

Dr. Alan shining Matt’s shoes…so typical of these two…

 All ready to get MARRIED!..
