Our Wedding: Part One – Getting Ready

So now that the magazine has officially hit news stands (scans coming soon!) I feel comfortable doing an official wedding recap.  I know it’s been almost a year, but here they finally are.  I’m going to post them in segments starting today and I’ll try to include as much info as I can.  If you have any questions though, please ask away.

Today we’ll start with the getting ready pictures.  The wedding was in the evening but we started getting everything ready pretty early.  We had Alice from Tiger Tiger Salon come out to the beach and she spent the whole morning doing our hair and my makeup.  It was nice to stay put all day and hide out in the master bedroom.

There was another wedding on the beach that morning and we watched it from the window while we ate lunch.  I panicked a tiny bit the day before when I saw someone set up rocks on the beach for another wedding, but it ended up being a memory from the day that I’ll always laugh about.  In a way we went to two weddings that day.

I wore my Grandma’s garter from her wedding.  My mom and I hunted for a vintage hanger from Portland for my dress.  Julia and Kaireese got their dresses from Anthropologie.  They were super soft jersey and crinkled cotton in soft brown.  My bouquet was white hydrangea, freesia, lisianthus and astilbe.  The girls carried green and blue-green hydrangea with light blue ribbon.
