My look.

I don't have any pictures of the shuttle ride. But it was quick! When we got to the venue I caught some glimpses of the entrance way, the ballroom, etc. and it looked amazing! But it wasn't finished, yet. So, we all filed into the bridal suite. It was decided that the girls should get dressed first that way in the pictures of me getting ready... they'd be all done up! I think that was a great decision.

So... this is what I did while they changed:

And, admired my flowers:

And before I knew it... it was time: TO PUT ON MY DRESS. :) :)

I feel like I could write a novel about my dress. Literally. But I won't... of course!

Let me just say that when I first put this dress on (at David's Bridal) I knew it was the one. Actually, even before that, when I was browsing the David's Bridal website the week after being engaged... I knew it was the one. There was never a question in my mind. Ever.

But, just to be safe, when we went to the store to try on dresses, I tried on 3 others first -- and "saved the best for last". But when I put it on... there was no doubt in my mind that it would be the dress that I would wear while walking down the aisle. I bought it Jan. 1, 2010 and every time I tried it on after that I felt the exact same way. It was perfect.

Ooooh. I just love it. I wish I could put it on right now...

Anyways --

So, I got dressed and that's kind of when it hit me. I wasn't feeling "nervous" but I was feeling something that I can't even put into words. I don't know that I'll ever feel it again -- in my entire life. I was anxious, excited, and mostly wanting it to start but not wanting it to end. Maybe you have different emotions to describe the feeling?

Here are some shots from getting ready:

I don't know why I look so serious?

My mom's wedding necklace & my "something borrowed".

This bracelet was a wedding gift from Sean :) and my "something new".
