Hi guys! I’ve been keeping it low-key here on my blog lately becaaaaause I went to the eye doctor recently and he said that computers are messing up my eye sight! Ek! Yup, sucks, huh? Well, I work on them 6 days a week, 9-5:30, and then come home and blog some nights… so I’ve managed to go from perfect vision, to needing glasses in less than 2 years. Youch! So, truth be told, that’s why I haven’t been blogging much lately.
BUT, I love my very dear friend Remie, and I love this blog, and I’ve been promising to cover Remie’s wedding from back in JULY for months now, so here I am! I’ve attempted many many times before, but I managed to take over 1000 pictures during her wedding, and those are not including the professional photos Remie had gotten from her photographer. Have I mentioned I’m a little photo obsessed?! hehehe! So, with out further ado…
This is for you, Remie Girl, and for Jordan. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful wedding! I love you guys!
Part 1 – Rehearsal!
I’m going to start off this tour (hehehehe!) with 2 horrible shots…! The happenings in the pictures are not horrible, but the picture quality is Terrible! I don’t know what was going on during the actual rehearsal, but I must have had my camera on the worst setting, because every single photo came out either blurred, or with terrible lighting! But even with all that, these 2 photos I love.
I loved that I captured this picture of Remie directing and pointing and getting things done. To me this picture represents so much of this wedding as a whole. She pulled this entire wedding together in only a few months (was it 2? Or 3?), basically by herself, and it was all fabulous and beautiful and completely due to her super women decision making abilities! Seriously! The girl knew what she wanted! And I loved that this picture shows her doing what so does so well, taking charge and getting it done!
The second photo is of the entire wedding party being instructed on how and where to go after we’ve walked off the aisle. I liked this one because it shows almost everyone who was in the wedding, and why we were at the rehearsal! To be instructed! lol! Don’t we look so intensely glued to the directors? hehe! (That’s me, waaaaaay in the back, completely dark and blurred. can you see me?)
After the rehearsal, Remie’s parents hosted the rehearsal dinner in their home. It was incredible how much food there was, ribs, gumbo, tamales, spinach artichoke dip, strawberry salad, bean salad, sushi, and a bunch of other dishes, and it was all homemade by Remie’s mother, Sach! The super woman gene must run through the family. This is Remie with her mother and grandmother.
It was a really great time with Remie and Jordan’s closest family and friends coming together to celebrate and have a good time. Here are some of the snap shots I took.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the picture above and to the right is a picture of one of the groomsmen, getting a gift, wrapped by the groom himself. Check out that wrap job! LOVE IT!
And below, the girls got matching necklace and earrings to wear to the wedding, in a little New York City ceramic box, as the newly weds were moving to NY 3 days after the wedding.
I made Amber, the matron of honor, model the gifts for a photo. Love this girl! She’s so silly! CHEEZE! CHEEEEEEZE! CHEEEEEEEEEZE!!!!!
And here are a few snapshots of everyone sharing the love. (Check out Jordan’s dad eating cake with chopsticks (and also the miss-spelled cake!!))
We wrapped up the dinner with some laughs outside…
…especially when the groom showed us his awesome tattoo! And, Yes, its real!!! LMAO! Perfect ending to an awesome day!!
Alright! Stick around for Part 2!! it’ll be up tonight, or tomorrow! Wedding time!! Yay!!!
Off to work I go!
