better wedding entry with photos in Second 1st
- June 6, 2022, 4:27 p.m.
Let us pretend the last entry isn’t there as start where is should have.... OMG these nails are horrible. I thought this would be easier on my PC but UGH typing.....
Here’s a zoo pic that Jake got a random stranger to take :)
there are other images of us… and of him to share but for some reason, I’m having trouble with it right now. Can’t seem to find pictures of him and Cian he sent.....
flowers! and deco at the hall
People were calling like crazy while we were making the lasagna. I had to screen the calls because none were that important.
I tried to get a room next to the Suite she’d gotten at the hotel but none were open. I made the choice to sleep at the house. They all decided to go swimming and I was stuck with list of things she’d forgotten. ...... well sort of…
The rehearsal went off well. Everyone walked too fast… we had to do it 3 times but we should be able to have nice pics when they come in. I did my bitch thing and ran them through it. Yes, it was me yelling “OKAY YOU GUYS THAT WAS A MESS BACK TO THE START. Let me show you what you did wrong so we can do better. ”
Luck had it that Jake was standing in for someone else so I drove him there from the house and back to the house when rehersal was over. Wedding was here
Hailey ( a bridesmaid) needed some waterproof mascara she’d forgotten her’s at home. Destiny had eft Alyssa’s press on nails at home.... and the van needed to be washed.
At the end of that I went back to the house to find all the guys sleeping… 10pmish.
Saturday was a mess. I got there about 20 to 7. Lorrie forgot her mirror, Destiny forgot more things causing 2 trips to the house. Then the photographer got lost so I had to go find her. Dest was able to get her getting ready photos and be on time for her air brushed makeup appointment.
Hair was honestly a big issue. Lorrie and I were getting some breakfast when Irene came in and got coffee, she looked drugged. Lorrie asked if we can trust her to do our bride’s hair. Í said that I was sure shéd be doing better after the coffee. Turns out she has Menire’s like me. I firmly believe she should not be not working. smh. We talked about symptoms a bit and I asked her if she needed to sit several times.... but you know, jobs and pay, and I”m okay. She was clearly not okay yall.
I had to have my hair done 3 times because she screwed it up twice. Not like OMG I don’t like this but like falling apart after just a walk down steps. My hair is too thick and heavy to stay without 2 lbs of bobby pins. The first style was a low bun which Destiny asked for, the second was a loose braid that looked trashy and by that time she’d had enough, gathered her things, collected payments and left. It was so bad looking that the photographer said shed braid it for me.... then one of the other hairdressers fixed it for free.
after that everyone was talking about how their boob was going to fall out of their strapless bras. Ya’ll I swear I saw the boobs And at least one nip for each woman in there. I helped them tape the bra to the dress and the bra to their skin. Worked well for everyone.....
Alyssa needed the back of her dress pinned with safety pins… and neither of Destiny’s girls had strapless bras.... so there was a ton of issues with that. Poor Alyssa.... is a whole issue.... she broke down crying. She hates all this girly stuff even the thought of putting the bra on made her so uncomfortable. We were able to talk Dest out of making her put on the nails but she begged for 2 hour of time in a dress and won.
I was the reason people were running late. Because of the hair, but the guys came by because Destiny had taken their boutonnieres to the hotel on accident. By the time they had gotten there the girls were getting in the Limo. Critter told me “stall them, because they hadn’t gotten the signs out yet, or the runner down.” So we had the Limo go to Walmart. When leaving the hotel room I made the announcement.... me doing the bitch thing again ” If you aren’t staying the night in this room it’s time to gather your things and get them to your vehicle. If you don’t have one here it will go in the limo. Please grab your flowers ...... This was a mad dash with MOB and I being last.... so my things stuffed in my purse… hair ties, the double-sided tape, the men’s flowers OMG they are outside! Hide the bride! If I’d not been there they might not be married now.... as Destiny forgot the license. LOL.... WHEW!
Gabby, Lorrie, Hailey then Carson
Angie, MOB, bride
Mila, Alyssa and bride
Gabby left her phone at WM and I called the store to hold it at Customer service until we could go get it. when would that be? no idea we were on our way to a wedding. We will figure it out later.
So wedding… was awesome.. the girls kept trying to get my attention one on each side. They saw a butterfly that hung around. … The vows were said and the I dos and honestly it was the sweetest thing. When Destiny said I do Critter closed his eyes to hear it like it was the best thing he’d ever heard and when it was his turn..... I made a fist that apparently he didn’t see… Mike, the best man did, lol, but Critter did not hesitate in his I do. It sounded so sure, just lovely.
I was too busy living in the moments to take pictures other than what you see here so.... we will all have to wait till Destiny gets back from the cruise and gets them for me :)
We went to the park to take pictures… Crampton Park.... when I was young my family (mom’s side) used to have family reunions there. We stopped at WM to get Gabby’s phone as we had more than 2 hours before the reception. Everyone got out to use the restroom before heading to the park. .... Even the driver :) who we had till 4. The reception started at 4 so we unloaded what we had in the limo into the vehicles at the Hall…Rocky had helped pack up the rented chairs and get them home and swap to our car.
More photos at the reception and the signal that we can change left only 2 girls in dresses lol.
There is still so much to tell about the reception but my hands are a bit tired now and I need a break from these nails.
There will also be an entry about the conversation with Rocky one we got home. For now.... There is so much to do.... everything needs to be washed.... everything.... it all smells like smoke.
