We had a wonderful evening with our families, bridal party/their significant others, dear friends and friends from Buffalo, South Carolina, Auburn, Georgia and the Burg!! We were able to share many memories the night before our "I Do's".. We held the rehearsal dinner at Phoenix on the Bay and had EXCELLENT food and a wonderful cake done by Karen Side from Alex Bay.. Eye's did not stay dry for long when dad, Shawn & I all tried very hard to give speeches... The key word was tried because Dad was the first person to speak and got about three words in before all of us were balling. We handed out thank you gifts to our parents and everyone in the bridal party, so that took a LITTLE bit of time!!.. I also received a wedding gift from Shawn, a GORGEOUS Swavorski Crystal necklace to wear on our wedding day! I also received a gift from my matron and bridesmaids... An amazing scrapbook starting with our engagement all the way up to the week of the wedding... I look at it often and cherish it always.. The rest of the post is all pictures but I think that the best way to describe moments is though film!!... Enjoy..

This was a phrase that was started by my little brother who went above and beyond to make sure that we all were having a good time during the week... Especially by making sure everyone's cup was full. We had such a good time all week long and through all the setup and little breaks to spend with friends. We had guests/friends/bridal party members arrive everyday of the week beginning on Monday. I am just going to post some of my favorite photos from the week. They range from setup photos, to opening gifts, to a little sandbar/boat day with four boats, to guys & girls day away from each other, to picking up the guys tuxes!! We can not give enough thanks to all of the dear people that helped us through the week and made our wedding day above any dreams that we had...

Well, well... I have not had a chance to post anything in a long while... So I will start with my Bachelorette Party in Ogdensburg.. We all met at my parents house in the city and took a bus to Alex Bay... To our delight it was also Pirate's Weekend, which meant the Bay was packed!!.. We had so much fun but the girls were bad and went against my wishes and surprised me with many "paraphernalia" items... Enjoy the photos... Or not!?!?!
