Hi Beautiful Bessie!
A new tip! To break your shoes in a little more quickly, wear tube socks with them around the house 🙂 WHO KNEW?!
That GORGEOUS Vera Wang (yes, I said Vera Wang!) dress is probably 13' up there. I had this grand idea to put it in this window and asked for a ladder… I turned around, and there was a ladder… uhm… I didn't THINK about the task of actually having to CLIMB the ladder WITH the dress (I'm an idiot!)… oh, and not to mention being 5'2"… AHHHH!!!!! But I did it… OH SO CAREFULLY… but oh oh oh oh yes… I got it up there!
The BEAUTY of windows. 🙂 Can I just say that I wish that EVERY bride would get ready in a room with windows??!? Yes, I can say that… it's MY blog! 😀
I love this!
OOOOOKAY… so, as you're about to see with the rest of this entry… it rained ALL day. 🙂 Here's Bessie getting out of the limo, and into the rain. I just LOVE the look on her face. 🙂 If you look closely, you can even see some rain speckles coming into the limo through the open door… (My view)
10 seconds later… Mikey's view. 😀 In the background, the guy with the blue and white umbrella is helping me out….
I love how Elias looks at her…
HELLOOOOOOO AMAZING CHURCH!!!!!
We didn't let a little bit of rain stop us… NO WAY!
You're about to see THE most EXQUISITE dessert bar you will have EVER seen… EVERRRR! I don't even know what to say about it other than this one word: YUMTOWN!!!!!!
Bessie, you're so damn cute!
Yes yes yes… this wedding was on the 4th of July. They had a private fireworks show for all of their guests. 🙂 HOW COOL IS THAT?!
GET DOWN EILEEEEEEN!
I don't know what exactly this was, but it was VERY cool. This guy danced around this drink for a few minutes while the guests circled around him on their knees, then he got down and picked it up with his mouth… and everyone cheered. 🙂
Mikey's favorite! ❓
MERRILLVILLE, Ind. OH.MY.GOSH… AMAAAAAZINNNNNG.WEDDING! Bessie and Elias had an INCREDIBLE day filled with OH SO much joy, sweetness and fun. 🙂 As you can tell by the photos… not ONE thing was overlooked… from her makeup/hair/dress to the fireworks and dessert… everything was perfection!
I LOVE "how did you meet?" stories. So, of course, I asked!! ANNND… here's the story! They went to the same church… and Elias was interested. 🙂 Bessie is an attorney. How do you get an attorney that you're interested in to go to lunch with you? You ask for legal advice. 😀 So… off to lunch they went. The rest is history! I asked… "so, what kind of legal advice did he need?" Her response, "He never asked!" HA! 😀
I would like to give these two BIG ol' props. 🙂 As I've already mentioned, it rained all day… but I will tell you this… not ONCE did anyone complain about it. I suggested stepping outside with an umbrella for some fun/artsy photos and, without hesitation, they were on their way. One of the MANY reasons I love our couples. 🙂
Bessie and Elias, thank you thank you THANK YOU for being amazing!!!!
Lots of love!
