LONG Overdue Wedding Post!

As I mentioned last week, somehow I forgot to blog about my wedding… THREE YEARS AGO! x_x This post is going to rectify that.

The Balboa Inn

On January 17, 2009, after months of planning and nearly SIX years of dating, my husband and I arrived at the Balboa Inn in Newport Beach, CA to get married.

Table Numbers.

I made the table numbers, Mike’s aunt Georgia made the centerpieces and arranged the flowers for us.

Centerpieces.

Funny story: my hair and makeup artist bailed on me the day of my wedding, so we had to go to a nearby salon. They were so nice to us, I’ll never forget how wonderful they were.

Getting ready.

My mother in law hated my shoes, but I loved my “something(s) blue!”

My blue flats. I'm ready to party!

I LOVED my birdcage veil.

Mike and I decided to take pictures before the ceremony, so here he is “seeing me for the first time.”

I believe he said, 'Oh, wow.'

We went and took pictures on the beach…

That bald head just catches all the sunlight.

And then walked back to get married.

Taking our vows… we laughed a lot during our ceremony, we were just SO HAPPY! Also, Mike’s grandfather married us.

Clearly we aren't taking this seriously enough.

Our first kiss as a married couple.
