The Tiny Heart: First

6.12.2012

First

**Please note that this is a scheduled post and I won't be able to respond to comments until I get back from my vacation in the Bahamas**

We do have a friend's destination wedding in the Bahamas to attend, but the real reason we're there is to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.  We first vacationed in the Bahamas for our third dating anniversary, so it's a special place for us.

While I've shared wedding photos here and there, I haven't devoted an entire post to it and I figured what better time to share than today on our anniversary? Since I can't post all the photos, here are the highlights...

 The Details



The Ceremony




 
 
Don't you just love the look on my face? I'm thinking "omg, we're actually married!"

The Reception




 I had to throw my bouquet THREE times...it kept getting stuck in the ceiling!


Family/Bridal Party

Don't I have the most gorgeous bridesmaids? My sister (and MOH), Alicia, is the first one to my right.

Adam with my family...is this not the funniest thing ever? After this one, the photographer made him sit down!

Bride & Groom


 


 
My wedding gift: Adam surprised me with a 1956 Bentley to pick me up instead of the regular black limo we had ordered...how awesome is that?!



And, since I wasn't totally happy with our wedding photos, we did a "Day After Session" 3 months later...
