our wedding: all dressed up

The morning of the wedding I woke up with butterflies in my stomach... I could hardly contain myself. We had a blast getting ready and the atmosphere was so relaxed. Luckily, my friend Jessica is a licensed makeup artist and another friend owns a hair salon... They made me feel so beautiful. I still looked and felt like myself, just a little more dressed up. When I put the gardenias in my hair I really started to feel like a bride.

My little sister {and maid of honor} looked so lovely and grown up, she is definitely more of a glamour girl than me! My dearest girlfriends came over to help put my nerves at ease and make me laugh. I don't know what I would do without them! My darling mom started tearing up when I put on my great-grandmother's mantilla. It was the perfect finishing touch.

*I loved my little Jeffery Campbell flamenco shoes... I danced all night with nary a blister!

  3. Darling - congrats! You look gorgeous - I'm dying to see more. Especially those flowers in your hair. Maybe your friends can give me hair and make-up lessons - appears I might be on my own in Mexico. So so so happy for you!
