Bridal Talk Tuesday - the best day ever!

Life with Elizabeth
Happy Bridal Talk Tuesday lovelies! Today is a very special Bridal Talk Tuesday because I'm sharing a few snapshots from our special day. There are no words to adequately describe how it feels to be married to the love of my life - my very best friend. We are so very happy and the feeling is indescribably amazing. There is a word that can describe our wedding day though - and it is perfection. The day was flawless and beautiful and everything went smoothly. The temperature was about 85 degrees - almost unheard of for August in the south. The forecast had been calling for rain but the weather held out for our outdoor photos, with just a quick shower during the ceremony. All our very best friends came into town and our families were there to celebrate with us. The day was perfect - at least in our eyes. If anything went wrong, we didn't know it. This was a guarantee I read in review after review of Carolina Wedding Design when I was choosing a wedding planner and it really is safe to say our wedding would not have been the same without Cortenay. We're off to Hawaii in the morning and there will be many, many recaps to come. For now, enjoy a couple snapshots of our day. (All taken from my friend's facebook pages and a couple from my iPhone.)
The kiss!

Kappas before the ceremony. This melts my heart. I love these girls!

Checking out those rings in the limo on the way to the reception

Ballroom shot, featuring the head table. Love the blush linen peeking through.

Mr. & Mrs. chairs. Love the gold chargers with blush linens. Ahh...Carolina Wedding Design! 

Table numbers that Cortenay designed in the gold frames I searched for in three different states until we found enough.

Head table from my seat, including the pearl clutch I found the day before the rehearsal at none other than....Marshalls.

The cake! Which was as tasty as it was pretty! Cake Lady Jill is amazing!

Our first dance. To Ben Harper's Forever.

Corey's cake with the tuxedo strawberry.

Our amazing server made sure my cake had a bride strawberry. 

And of course - the cookie buffet favors!

While Corey and I are honeymooning, I have four fabulous ladies lined up for a wedding guest blogger series. On Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next two weeks, these ladies will be here chatting with you about all the details of wedding planning from choosing your photographer to building a registry. Don't miss out! Aloha, lovelies!
