Baker Wedding: Getting Ready!

Sorry for the delay in sharing our wedding pics! To be honest, I wanted to submit them to Southern Wedding Magazine and you cannot post them on any other blog first before they do. However, I turned out to be way too impatient, so here we go!
 
Feel free to scan and just look at pictures if you'd like, I'm mainly typing this out so I can look back and remember all of the details one day.
 
Saturday morning, my mom and I woke up at my soon-to- be in laws' house. Just like Christmas morning, I was the first one awake and could not even think about falling back asleep. I looked at Facebook, Instagram, etc until my mom woke up. We were the first ones awake so we went downstairs and made coffee. With my cup of coffee, I began to draft Cameron's letter that would be delivered to him later. I tried not to let my mom see that I was crying. I was just so overcome with emotion and excitement that our day was finally upon us.
 
Once I finished the letter, my mom and I went back upstairs to take our showers. I put on one of Cameron's button ups and comfy leggings. The hair and make up girls (one being my MnOH's sister) soon arrived, as well as my bridesmaids! It was happening! I loved just hanging out with my best friends, as we all got prettified, talking about everything under the sun, snacking on some fresh fruit and turkey pinwheels, and sipping on some mimosas.
The "Bride's Room" sign has been passed throughout my sorority sisters, and I will be passing it down to Kristen in September. :)
 Once my ladies were done, it was my turn! I'm always SO nervous when other people do my hair because I am so picky. I don't really know why, because whatever they do is going to be 10x better than what I would be able to do. Luckily, Emily's sister, Liz, came through as usual, making me feel like a beauty queen. As every bride should feel on her wedding day!
My junior bridesmaid and flower girl arrived to finish getting ready with "the girls," and they immediately stole the show. They are just the cutest and sweetest things I have ever seen.
In between taking pictures of everyone, my (amazing) photographer, Juliet, took some detail shots of our dresses and accessories.
 
Shoes by Vera Wang Lavender, my Aunt Cindy's earrings, and my "something old" - a diamond watch from Cameron's grandmother.
 

 
Then, it was finally time to get dressed!

The guys arrived in style, on Cameron's family's sportfisher. (You might see it come into play again later. :) ) Not going to lie, when we were on the way to the venue, my sister called Cameron and he wasn't there yet. I thought he was still going to have to take a shower and get dressed so I was freaking out a little. Luckily, he was already dressed on the boat. Phew!



 
Stay tuned for more!

  6. Not going to lie, I started tearing up as I read and saw all the pictures again. I loved that day. If I'm this bad on yours, how in the world will I survive mine if/when that day comes?! Good thing you'll be there.
