Our Wedding | Days of Chalk and Chocolate

Our Wedding

Share It:
Our 8 year anniversary is today, August 7th.  I thought it might be fun to go down memory lane and post some pictures from our day!  Jim is the best and I dig him in a big way!  It was a beautiful day filled with friends and family!

Oh,  and remember, I'm a Jersey girl 100% so it was a techno, 90's freestyle dance music reception. We did get introduced in our reception to some Metallica song because, well, let's just say Jim and I wouldn't have been friends in high school. 

I made my ring bearer pillow. Should have started a blog back then!

The reason I bought this dress

My sisters were my matrons of honor.

hubba hubba

Goin' down the aisle with my daddy.

Gettin' er done

And done!  Mission accomplished! And it kills me that my ring bearer there on the end is now 16, a life guard, and buff.

A little toast

I love this picture except that my pit cleavage is lapping over my dress. Thanks Mr. Camera Guy for helping me out with that.

Not sure what to say. Parking lot. Sign. Me. Jim.

The grounds of our reception hall (which is almost near The Brownstone for all you RHONJ fans!  But they were way out of our price range.)

Mint julep cups, hydrangeas, and little boxes filled with chocolate. Perfection!

I asked for a dark chocolate cake and I got beige. Eh, cake is cake so it went down alright. And I wanted a natural cake topper but this was just too, let's say, bulbous.

Bringing the beat back with my favorite guy who was an outrageously good dancer in his day despite the fact he was a metal head in his youth.

Double french bustle!

I got my girls, a disco ball, some beads, and a husband somewhere around there!  The best way to celebrate!

Then we scatted out to Hawaii for 2 weeks and had the time of our lives! 

Hope you enjoyed my little wedding tour!

  4. Happy Anniversary! I enjoyed looking through all of your special moments on that happy day. You were a beautiful bride, and that dress! GORGEOUS! Where did you have your reception? My hubby is from NJ and has a huuuuuge family, so we has our wedding there. We got married at the church in Smoke Rise and had our reception at The Grand Chalet! Oh, and we also entered our reception to the tune of Metallica--Enter Sandman, to be exact! It's a Virginia Tech football thing. ;)
