I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do!

We're married! J (henceforth to be known as The Mister) and I went back to work today, so we've been forced to get back to our normal schedules, although we're still doing wedding-related things like writing lots and lots of thank-you notes. We'd like to thank all of you who commented and e-mailed for you good wishes and congratulations!

I'm still waiting for one of our many camera-happy friends to send us pictures, but I thought I'd share the few pictures I had my maid of honor snap with my camera. Here's proof for all of you that I did indeed use my wedding shawl! Although it was about 80 and sunny outside, the thermostat in the room in which the bridesmaids and I got ready was set at about 60 and I was freezing! A little alpaca to wrap around my shoulders was just what I needed.


I'm under all that tulle somewhere ...

I'm clutching my stomach to see if it's still there under that corset of an undergarment I'm wearing.



See the flower baskets now?

I have tears in my eyes (can you imagine if I was at the wedding? there would have been a flood!) congratulations -- you look mahvelous!! :)

Oh congragulations! How rude of me. The whole time, I didn't even think about congragulating you. BTW, you make a lovely bride. So pretty, dark hair, white dress, deep set features. Absolutely beautiful. The shawl is also beautiful, but only in this case, it's all about you sista! Who cares about how beautiful your shawl is, you are the start. Congragulations. Didn't catch any pictures of the groom. Is he something I can drool over too? :)
