A girl’s wedding day is one she’s dreamt of her whole life. My dream wedding came true on November 6, 2016 to the sweetest man I could have ever imagined. I knew that when my wedding day came, it would be filled with all our families & friends and lots of love. It was nothing short of amazing. Now that our one year wedding anniversary is approaching, I wanted to share all the details of our wedding!
It all started Sunday, November 6, 2016 at the M Resort in Las Vegas. We had booked two suites for the both of us and our wedding party to get ready in. My girlfriends and I started with mimosas and breakfast. Once we had some bubbly, I gave the girls their gifts while we were getting our hair & makeup done! I had eight bridesmaids & two flower girls – three girls doing makeup and one doing our hair. To say the least, our suite looked like a fashion shoot and took hours to get ready!
Meanwhile in the groom’s room – not a whole lot of activity going on. The boys hit the gym in the morning and got ready about an hour before we had to leave for the venue. Must be nice to be low maintenance!
After we got all dolled up for the most important day of our lives, our photographer, who also happens to be my very talented cousin, was able to capture some amazing photos!
Once we arrived at our wedding venue, Revere Golf Course, which overlooked the Las Vegas skyline, our photographer took photos of all the little details of our wedding. My husband and I love to read and love books so we turned our wedding into a literary themed wedding. I came up with the vision and with the help of my mother, mother-in-law and my girlfriends and sisters, we were able to pull off a grand wedding!
Our ceremony took place hillside of the golf course during sunset which was absolutely breathtaking! We were able to say our vows just moments before the sun was setting which gave us the perfect opportunity for once in a lifetime wedding photos.
After cocktail hour and pictures, we took the party inside the ballroom and the fun began as Mr. & Mrs.
We had our first dance to Never Stop by Safety Suit (Wedding Edition). As I was dancing with the man of my dreams, I felt like I was on cloud nine.
After all the father/daughter, mother/son dances and all the speeches, we did the infamous money dance! We had so much fun dancing with all our loved ones and of course all the cash we got to spend paying off our honeymoon! We were so grateful for all our family & friends that danced with us and celebrated our special night.
Since we had a whole dessert table filled with donuts, cookies, cake pops, pretzel sticks, and cupcakes, the cutting of the cake was short and sweet. My sister baked three mini cakes for us, compliments of her makeshift bakery, Project Bakery LV. As much as we wanted to eat every last bit of it, we didn’t get a single slice because we were pressed for time 😦
I think we can all agree that the removal of the garter is the most awkward part of any wedding. I mean, what dad really wants to see their son-in-law hike up their daughter’s wedding dress?? It was totally awesome though because my husband is the life of the party, so he definitely made a show out of it which makes for a good laugh! The best part was having my cousin and his girlfriend of 12 years catch the garter & bouquet!
As the night grew, the dance floor was filled with everyone dancing to the latest track and having the best time! We literally have the best families and friends anyone could ask for! Regardless of the little things that happened during the day that would have stressed me out, I had girlfriends that kept the bubbly flowing through my system so I wouldn’t stress and a mom who handled everything without showing a sign of anxiety!
One year has gone by so fast and I couldn’t have asked for a better year with anyone else. This past year we bought our very first house together & had our first baby girl together. Life is so great with a man like mine. Cheers to many more years, my love.
