And without further ado (because I know this is what you really want), photos!
Bride and groom!
Me and the bridesmaids, who were awesome. The flowers we're carrying are made (by all of us) of felt, hot glue, and flower wire (and ribbon). I'll just take a moment to say I had the BEST bridesmaids. One journeyed far from the northernlands and faced lots of stupid airline crap just to be here. One absorbed bad luck (her shoe broke just hours before the wedding, and then when she figured that all out, she ended up burning her hair). One was bringer of boozes not to mention up early to help decorate. They were all freakin' awesome.
The groomsmen, not be forgotten, were also fantastic. Two travel far--one from Eastern Europe!!--and they all pitched in and helped get everything going, decorating, driving me/other people all around, and just being super cool. Our wedding parties are simply a microcosm of our fantastic group of friends.
I made my veil, which was super fun. The flower is made of silk circles of varying sizes, and I sewed some beads in the middle to give it a little bling (I was looking for some sort of cool piece of jewelry but never found one). The veil itself was a pain, until I finally figured out how to shape it properly--I'm extremely pleased with how it turned out!
The shoes! So amazing! They were great--though, I think because they are really high, they are why I didn't cry during the ceremony, which was so beautiful and perfect.
My dress twirls! (Advantages of a full skirt).
I never thought I'd say it, but my wedding was perfect. Even with all the snow crazies, and with some people unable to travel, we still had a great time and partied hard.
