But can you blame me? I’ve already exhausted this topic on other social outlets (twitter
, facebook.) so it’s only fair that I post about the wedding here, too.
The day: December 16, 2011
The weather: chilly but sunny
The venue: The Chicago Temple & the Trump International Hotel
The dress: Ramona Kaveza
The event started with an amazing rehearsal dinner at Frontera Grill
. We ate comida de Mexico. We drank margs. We listened to music. We shared stories, which lead to laughs… and tears. It was a wonderful evening to kick off the most wonderful weekend.
Two gorgeous ladies. Haylie, my maid of honor, and my momma.
Susana and me.
Bros. Best friends.
Our wedding day was the best day ever! I woke up in the bridal sweet with my BFF from college, Haylie. The other girls met us for a light breakfast in the room. I was so calm all day. Everything felt natural and right. After breakfast, we started the process of getting beautified…. which lasted well into the afternoon. It was fun to be with all my girls and my momma. The only one missing was lil Molls. But she was busy doing this:
Anyway, Lu and I had our first look in the hotel. We then proceeded to take hundreds of pictures (including some outside, which were freezing but worth it). 1500 fabulous pictures to be exact. And I love every single one of them. Below are a few of my favorites.
My dress was fit and flair with ruffle detailing on the bust and the bottom. When can I wear it again?
Best bridal party ever.

Jeremy made me feel like a celeb for the day.
The Ken Arlan band was amazing.
A lot of moves were busted.
