So now that I am no longer "Soon to be Mrs. G" I have a new URL!  Don't worry, I exported this blog and you won't miss the old posts, but I will be posting from the other account now!  Thank you for reading and I'll see ya over at !  Come follow me over there for more wedding recaps and the new adventures in my life as a newlywed!

Wedding Recap: Bride gets Dressed

After all the girls were ready, it was finally time for me to get into my dress.  I can't explain the feeling of having all your best friends and family with you all day.  I was so overwhelemed with happiness and love and I didn't want the day to end.  Putting my dress on was one of the best moments of the day except for of course marrying the man of my dreams! 

We're laughing at how much padding was added to my dress!

LOVE this one! 

As soon as my sister put my veil on the tears started flowing, but thenkfully the girls were there to make me laugh!

Wedding Recap: Guys Get Ready

As us girls were getting ready in our 2 rooms, the guys were getting ready in the honeymoon suite.  I was quite nervous about them being in there and "messing it up" before we came back to that room later that night.  I gave very specific instructions to Mr. G that everything HAD to be cleaned up because I wasn't going to be happy coming into a room that they had made a mess in earlier!  He did a great job and I'm so glad pur photographer was there to take pictures in the room because these are the only pictures I have of our honeymoon suite!

The view out this window was of the gorgeous bridge that you'll see in other pictures.  Our room was an amazing suite with a fabulous view of the bridge and the river!

Mr. G and Groomsman B were up until 4 am...there is quite the hilarious story to go along...they needed some 5 hour energy to make it through the day!

My ridiculous dog...and my cute husband!

So last night I walked into the bedroom to find this...

My ridiculous dog (Bailey) and my husband curled up on the bed together!

Please tell me this is the most ridiculous thing you've ever seen...

Wedding Recap: Girls Get Ready

Sadly, I still have not received my CD of professional pictures.  As with most of my other pictures, these are from Julie and Kelly!
Just after getting my hair done!

My bouquet arrives!

Some of my accessories

My mom made each of the girls a jewelry pouch as part of their gift and she surprised me with one for myself!  She also put my Great Grandmother's (I'm named after her and I never met her) wedding ring inside...definitely made me cry!


I had such a fun morning getting ready in the hotel with all my mom, my sisters, and all my best friends!  We laughed and we cried, but it was so much fun!

Vendor Review: Caterer

Our caterer came highly recommended from some family friends.  From the moment we met with Monte, the owner, we felt comfortable and knew that he would take care of all the details of our special day.  Oh...and the food was DELICIOUS!  They also took care of all of our rentals, china, flatware, glassware, tables, linens, dancefloor...the list goes on and on!  I can't say enough about how smoothly everything went because of our amazing caterer and his staff.  They took care of everything and we were so impressed!

Our favors (in each glass) and of course...THE FOOD!

As with our florist, I would HIGHLY recommend our caterer, All Seasons All Reasons!  They were fabulous in every way and there wasn't one single time that I thought we should have hired someone else.  They were fabulous!
