i'm going to try to post some pictures of how i came to some of the decisions we made about our wedding....let's be honest....decisions i made.
i didn't want to post them before the wedding because i didn't know which decisions would stick and which i would change at the last minute. so here goes...
my sister and i live for parties. we love decorating and going all out.
i figured a long time ago that your own wedding is like the ultimate party because it's all about you and your spouse. you get to make all the decisions.
it's so funny how we dream about our weddings and have it all planned out, but when the time comes....our decisions are different than we thought they would be.
i started collecting pictures a long time ago of things that i liked. i knew i wanted to get married at the beach. i think everyone knew this about me because i've been saying that since i was in the sixth grade. the wedding wouldn't be on the beach...just at the beach...the seaside chapel to be exact. i wanted my bridesmaids to wear whatever white outfit they wanted. the groom/groomsmen would wear white shirts and khaki pants. my dad was so excited about all of this because he could wear tennis shoes.
the rehearsal dinner would be at either the red bar or stinky's (my dad's favorite restaurant down there)
getting married in december wasn't really conducive to a beach wedding. it would have been difficult for our family and friends as well.
so we decided on jackson.
i decided on the yacht club because we could have our pictures in front of the boats and feel like we were at the beach.
the yacht club was awesome!
the only part that i didn't like was having our reception split. they have an upstairs and a downstairs. it's perfect in the summer b/c there is a natural flow, but the winter is a little bit more difficult. i knew this going in, but we decided on it anyway. i'm so happy we did!
just look at this view!
that was taken the night of our wedding by my cousin. the Lord gave us a perfect day!!
so here is decision #1...our reception location
