I can honestly say that our wedding day was the most incredible day of my life, so far. Knocking on wood is something I should do except the day is already over. Nothing went wrong at all (that I knew about at least) and could not have been happier! Now I continue to think back and wonder how something can go by so quickly but at the same time I think it's helped me live in the moment a bit more.
We got married in a church but the wedding weekend went down at Lord Thompson Manor. Truly one of the most amazing sites (that I could fine!) in Connecticut. The staff is impeccable as is everything they put their hands on and you literally have an entire wedding weekend here from the rehersal dinner on Friday to the final brunch on Sunday. In my opinion, it doesn't get better than that when you're in the "quiet corner of Connecticut" with not much else to do.
I seriously LOVED my shoes. Not a day goes by where I'd regret that purchase!
My grandmothers cameo went on my bouquet. I absolutely love that pin! Funny story on my perfume. I went to buy something I have never worn before. The day I got to Nordstrom they told me that they had an engraver there so I had him put the date on the bottle!
My handsome man getting ready!
My dress, I still want to wear it...I may pull a Friends and hang out on the couch with it one day soon. Anyone want to join me?
Our first look! I was against this and wanted the church aisle to be our first look, but all of our pictures would have been in the dark so I went against it. Seeing Rob prior to the church actually calmed me down!
Our photographers were absolutely wonderful. Husband and wife team, Justin and Mary Marantz are amazing. I would recommend them for anyone in the CT area that's looking for a wedding photographer!
I'll post more soon!
