Eric and I stayed in the same hotel room and woke up together on our wedding day. I know the superstitious would say it was bad luck, but it felt like the right thing for us. Sleeping apart just felt so unnatural. Waking up on the morning of our wedding and being able to take that time in for ourselves was so, so special.
Eric left to be with his groomsman around 9 a.m. and my bridesmaids and makeup/hair vendors started arriving around 10 a.m. Getting ready was such a fun time of anticipation and happiness. I couldn’t wait to see Eric all dressed up and for him to see me in my wedding dress.
My bridesmaids (and my friend Kelly) were so helpful and took care of everything I needed from getting drinks and food to last minute printing of the seating chart.
We had three bridesmaids and four groomsmen and I don’t think anyone even noticed the odd number. It worked out perfectly.
I’m so happy we have so many great getting ready shots. They are always some of my favorites from weddings.
Next up I’ll be posting about the ceremony and the details that made our day special.
