I spent the first half of the day on the beach with everyone. Just trying to relax and soak everything in. Before I knew it it was time to get a shower and go to my hair appointment. At this point, it was noon and I didn't eat anything yet. (Just not hungry! Too many nerves!) I made my sister go get me a glass of wine & some cucumbers. This ended up being all I ate until dinner that night! Ha!
My sister, my mom, & I went to the salon and got our hair done. This is where I got REALLY nervous. I'm not going to lie, I was wondering if I was doing the right thing in getting married. I was FREAKING out. The time there flew by and before I knew it the time was already after 3:30 and I was supposed to get married at 4! We quickly ran to my room.
I was running around like a crazy person! I was running so late! My photographer kept telling me to calm down because they "won't start the wedding without you!" I didn't get a lot of the pretty shots of my dress because I threw it on the bed and starting getting dressed right away. I didn't even have time to steam it! (It had been in a garment bag for 5 days ever since we left MN!) But alas, it looked perfect! Not wrinkled at all! Not bad for being smashed into an overhead bin on the plane! ;)
Once I was dressed we ran down to the beach, all I could think about was how late I was! Once I saw my grandma, I burst into tears. She told me how beautiful I was and everything hit me like a ton of bricks---I was getting MARRIED RIGHT NOW. They all took their seats and it was just me and my brother waiting on my song to start (At Last by: Ella Fitzgerald) One that song started everything became a blur...
Up next, the ceremony!
