The day before our wedding (Part 2)

See the day before our wedding (part 1) here.

Here are a few pictures from before our rehearsal. My mother in law's coworkers threw her a "mother of the groom" shower and gave her this tiara and sash!

The whole group headed over to our ceremony location at 4:40 for the rehearsal. We met the officiant, day of coordinator, and James' sister's family (her two daughters were our flower girl and ceremony reader).

We ran through everything and it was completely surreal. I choked up a bit but didn't actually cry. It was windy but otherwise perfect.

My bride outfit from the bachelorette party made a reappearance!

After the rehearsal we went back to our rental house for dinner: Lasagna and pizza from Kianti's, salad and red velvet cake. Oh, and plenty of wine!


The food was delicious, but more importantly, everyone had a great time. Most of our relatives were meeting for the first time, and everyone blended and got along so well. I couldn't ask for a better night!

We nontraditionally stayed together the night before the wedding, and it was great to talk about everything and share our excitement for the following day...
