We started the day with the posed pro shots. These are not pro, but they were taken by friends at the same time as the pro ones were.
The "Groomal Party" as they liked to be called.
My girls. I had such a gorgeous bridal party!
One of my favorite pictures with my brothers! Warren's face is priceless!
Jeff and I.
Our tables. So pretty! I had asked for pink champagne (which I was told would cost extra, but they didn't charge me) and it really tied everything together and looked so nice! It was also really good, and I normally hate champagne!
Our cake! I was so thrilled with the way it turned out and it tasted delicious! We saved the top tier for our first anniversary! It's in the freezer right now!
We entered into our reception to "Enter Sandman" because we are huge Yankees fans and Mariano Rivera enters the stadium to this song. It was so badass and awesome!
First dance. We took 10 private lessons and we had the routine down. I didn't factor in nerves and a big, puffy dress, so I actually screwed a lot of it up and had to ask Jeff for reminders for what moves came next! Thankfully, no one else noticed and thought we looked awesome! I couldn't really do the dip at the end of the dance because I had lost more weight and my dress was a tad too big and I almost flashed everyone haha!
Our ceremony arrangements came from the Church to the reception.
The sweetheart table was a bit of a surprise for me! I had just said to stick my bouquet into a vase, put a few votives on the table, along with some pink rose petals. Our venue hostess decided to give us a big candle that was on a mirror plate, and she put everyone's bouquets on the table. It was gorgeous and I never would have thought of it on my own! It looked so much better than what I had planned!
Toasting during either the MOH or best man's toasts. Both were so personal and heartfelt, and I cried during my MOH's toast!
Cutting our cake!
We were very nice to each other during the cake feeding, but we cut a pretty big piece and Jeff tried to shove a ton of it into my mouth! I was like, "I can't eat that much cake at once!"
Kissing with mouthfulls of cake!
Dancing with my dad. I split the song with one of my brothers as well. The other one hates dancing and didn't want to do it haha!
My brother and I.
Jeff and his mom.
Bouquet toss! My bridesmaid Jess caught it!
Removing my garter.
Jeff kind of danced around me and was silly before and after getting the garter. I almost died when he practically sat on my lap!
Garter toss! Jeff aimed it at his groomsman that we had paired Jess with since she caught my bouquet. He caught it and then had to put it on her leg, which was funny!
I don't really have any pics of us leaving because the venue and hotel shared a parking lot, so we didn't have a "getaway car" or anything like that! We just kind of left and walked next door!
I hope you all enjoyed my wedding pictures! I will definitely post some professional ones once I get them! I'm still in awe over how well everything went and we had such an amazing time! Next I will post some Disney honeymoon pictures!
Also, Jeff proposed to me a year ago today! I can't believe how time flies!
