Our wedding ceremony wasn’t until 7:30 in the evening, so we had a lot of time to kill until then. I slept like a rock the night before, and I was able to get up leisurely, have a little bit of breakfast, and get showered before heading to my hair appointment. My bridesmaids and my mom and I all met at the church around noon, and we set up shop in one of the meeting rooms. It was an explosion of dresses, bouquets, makeup, hair brushes, and other beauty items.
Brian and the groomsmen were all camped out in another set of meeting rooms on the other side of the church, so we didn’t have to worry about him and I running into one another before our pictures. And the boys didn’t have to worry about doing makeup and hair or any of that, so we let them have the room with the pool table and the TV for football watching. ;o)
Once we were all ready, my photographer, Julie Hedges, came in to take a few behind the scenes shots, and then it was time to take all of our professional photos which I will share in another post.
We took pictures for a couple of hours, and then it was back to the meeting rooms to freshen up and get ready for the actual ceremony. By that time, I hadn’t eaten very much all day so I was starving. I have always had a nervous stomach and when I have something big going on like this, I tend to do better when I don’t eat. However, I had eaten so little that day, that I was starting to feel a bit faint, so my uncle came to my rescue and he ran to the KFC just around the block from the church to get some buckets of popcorn chicken. I don’t ever even eat KFC, but that was the best freaking chicken I had ever had because I was so hungry! Haha. And my girls thought it would be hilarious to take pics of me eating it in my wedding dress (since I was literally just minutes from walking down the aisle), so someone snapped this picture. #Classic and #Classy
