All You Need is Love: Getting Ready!

Need to catch up on the previous recaps?

Here are all the things we DIY'ed for the wedding/reception
Here are our flowers
Everyone started arriving on Thursday
Friday, pre-rehearsal
Then we rehearsed
And of course ate

Then we woke up and my mom & I got our hair done

As I alluded to in my last post, after my mom and I left the salon, wedding day mishap #1 (of 2) occurred. We are about 15 minutes away from the salon and we get a call from Kim, the hair stylist, telling us we forgot my tiara! For some reason I had brought it inside the salon with me, but then completely forgot it when we left. We start to turn around to go get it, with me freaking out because there was a tight morning timeline and simultaneously calling my dad to tell him we would be a bit late getting to the church.

Then my dad saves the day! He tells me he will go ahead and drop the bridesmaids off at the church (per the plan) but then go drive an hour roundtrip himself to go get the tiara. Yay! No more me running late though I felt bad he had to drive all that way. So- lesson learned-- make sure you have EVERYTHING before you leave :)

So my mom and I arrive at the church right as my photographer, Kasey, and her second shooter arrive. A few minutes later the bridesmaids arrive, and the getting ready begins!

Now a little plug for our makeup lady. I had contacted her about two months prior about doing my makeup and the original plan was to do just the regular powder makeup because though I wanted the airbrush it was a bit more than we wanted to spend. When she arrives, she tells me she will do the airbrush for the original cost of the powder-- not charging us anymore! She was so sweet and you could tell she just loved what she did. I absolutely loved how my makeup came out and it stayed all day. So if anyone is getting married in Houston-- contact her! Though not anytime soon-- she is expecting a baby any day now!

The church had a huge parlor we got to spread out all of our stuff in along with a full-length mirror, so it was perfect for getting ready. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves now.
