Back and Married!!

Hey Guys! Our wedding was on Saturday and it turned out PERFECT! It really was the wedding of my dreams. The days leading up to the wedding were pretty tough. We had a lot of last minute stuff to finish. But we got it all done and the place looked amazing! Saturday was so much fun and we loved every minute of it!
A few quick lessons I learned:
* Stock up on sleeping pills, I needed them! I couldn't sleep for about 3 days before the wedding and I felt awful. Luckily my brother gave me on the night before the wedding so I felt MUCH better Saturday!
* Hiring a day of coordinator was totally worth it! Ours was fantastic and really made the day run smoothly!
* Having a first look was *awesome*! It was one of my favorite moments of the day as we did it before the craziness began. FI and I had a few nice moments alone and we loved it.
* Doing photos before the ceremony was really good too. With our families, the portraits were a bit stressful to get everyone organized, so I was really happy to be done with it early in the day.
I'll have vendor reviews to share soon! I was lucky, I pretty much LOVED all my vendors (except the ones I had to replace 2 weeks before the wedding), but it all worked out perfectly. One of my favorite vendors is my amazingly talented photographer, Leah Haydock. Hiring her, again, one of the best decisions we made! She had already posted some of our photos on her blog, less than 48 hours after the wedding. And they are STUNNING!!!
