So, let's start with my husband, (yep, HUSBAND now- but fiance at this time) graduated from the Carnegie Mellon Tepper School of Business. Yeah Van! His lovely parents and sister, Whitney, came to town for graduation which was fun. We always eat and drink a lot with them- and of course did some Pittsburgh sight-seeing. Below is Van with his honor cords!
Then there were the bachelorette and shower festivities. My incredible bridesmaids threw me a wonderful party that consisted of all of my favorite activities: wine-tasting, eating, dancing, walking barefoot down Hollywood Blvd. at 2am. Wha?! Well, everything except the last one. Thank you ladies- you're amazing, all I can say is that when you aren't born with sisters, your friends really are your sisters. Thank you. Here are some of my favorite pics- please note the random sea creature I met at the Supper Club.
Love, Love, Love these ladies! xx
Me and the Moms <3
Aren't my Swedish cousins beautiful?
I have to throw in the amazing Korean liquor tasting that happened in the hotel after the dinner. Thank you again Ms. Granger. So fun to hang out with the girl's that night- they helped keep my nerves at bay. ;) I've known these ladies since either elementary school or middle school. Pretty incredible.
Since neither Van or I got cold feet- the next day was WEDDING DAY!!
The Hacienda, in Santa Ana, CA to be our venue- and it was absolutely perfect for us. So special in every way, from our family and friends that celebrated with us to my brother's band playing and the DJ was awesome too. At the risk of sounding cheesy, it truly was the happiest day of my life.
Here are some getting ready pics.
Then headed to the venue-I don't have any pics of Van since there were all before "the first look." But once I get the professionals back, I'll share a few of those.
Next up was our honeymoon- but I'll save that for another post because there were A LOT of food pics. Imagine that. After my 3.5 month hiatus it feels really good to me back.
