WIW: Wedding Edition link up!

 Megan from Absolute Mommy is celebrating her 7th wedding anniversary with a WIW wedding edition, fun right? Who doesn't love looking at their pictures from their wedding.

 My husband and I got married on March 9, 2011. Yep we just celebrated our 3 year anniversary. After being a couple for 4 years, we took the plunge! I wasn't really into having a huge wedding, I wanted something small, and intimate. Well it doesn't get much smaller and intimate than just the two of us on the beach in Hawaii!!

This is where we got married, it's called Shipwreck Beach.. I don't know the Hawaiian name for it, but that's the tourist name for it! It's even more amazing in person!
We took the the 11 hour journey from Florida to Kauai Hawaii, hung out for 2 days, got married on the 3rd day, and honeymooned for the next 5 days. For us it was PERFECT, Kauai Hawaii is unbelievably beautiful, it's like nothing we had ever seen before.
 
 This is me on my wedding day. I did my own hair, and makeup. I wanted an actual wedding dress. When I started looking at dresses I thought I wanted a flowy beachy dress, but once I started trying them on, I realized I still wanted a REAL dress, and I'm happy Because I think it made the pictures better.
Dress- David's Bridal
shoes- none
hair clip- made by me ;)
and I had my moms diamond earrings on

I didn't have any other jewelry on, just a lay, and no veil... just keeping it simple.


I actually had to ship my dress to Hawaii a few days before we arrived, because I didn't want to have to carry it on, and have it get all wrinkled. This was a little scary, what if it had got lost! The lady we Hired to help me coordinate was so helpful, she picked this location, ordered my bouquet, and our lays and let me ship my dress to her house, she took it out of the bag and let it hang so it wouldn't be wrinkled. Little did I know she had a dog named Jason, and little figurines all over her house, and her mom sits in her living room watching wheel of fortune all day...  Living the Hawaiian lifestyle I guess??


Oh yeah, Tyler was there to :)

  13. I'm working on one of these posts too! I love seeing what everyone wore on their wedding day. You looked beautiful. Sometimes I wish we had done something small and simple like this too. I loved my wedding day but there was so much going on that it's kind of all a blur. Thank god for tons of pictures and video.
