I'm back. The wedding is over and it was great, except for some minor changes along the way.
The biggest change was the dress. The one I ended up wearing is not the lovely, gold & teal handmade one I bought so long ago. I came to the point were the dress was just a little too tight and not comfortable. I couldn't take the pressure any longer of trying to make it work, so I opted for this light silver, summery number. It ended up working out so well, especially since the boy looks so cute in gray.
Then I ended up getting a cold a couple of days before the ceremony. It was as if the moment I checked off the final item from my to-do list that it happened. I remember sneezing in the store and that was the moment it hit me. (This is so typical. I had a sinus infection during the prom as well.)
Me, my mom, and my best friend went and bought about six different medicines trying to find one that would stop my nose for awhile. It was a lot of medicine, but my mom's a nurse, so I figured it was ok.
In the end, I just had to remind myself that if those girls on America's next top model can get up for a photo shoot when they are feeling like death, then I could do it too. Ha ha, as Tyra would say, "Just smile with your eyes."
And a huge THANKS goes out to my talented photographer (and boss), Donna Tine. Her pictures came out so beautifully as you can see here. It was so nice to not only have someone I knew taking the photographs, but also someone who directed everyone naturally and with ease. Thank you, Donna!
