Wedding Photos: Getting Ready - Bride and Bridesmaids

Hey Y'all!
Remember November 18th? Cause I sure's the day I married Kev!
It's time to reveal photos from our big day, but I am breaking them down into categories for my own personal documentation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Still swooning over them!

Highlights of that morning

-waking up with my my bridesmaids in the bridal suite at the hotel
-wearing my lil Mrs.W hoody and bride tee
-the ride from the hotel to Talon Winery with Megan
- getting ready in the bridal suite at the winery
-reading Kev's letter to me
-we had agreed NOT to do wedding gifts, we buy each other plenty of thoughtful things on the reg. that lil stinker sent over the sweetest gift on our wedding day. It wasn't over the top or extravagant, it was simply so thoughtful. He sent over the Kate Spade "Mrs" necklace I had been eyeballing for months. It was perfect!
- sipping mimosas and enjoying our bridal lunch together while jamming out to Taylor Swift
-opening the box of letter's my closet gal pals and bridesmaids had written for me to read on my wedding day. One of my girlfriends had been collecting them since March
- the excitement, emotions and butterflies all rolled into one
- my florist handing me my bouquet wrapped in lace from my mother's wedding veil, with buttons from Granny's wedding suit she wore in the 1940's
- putting on my dress for the first time and the tears that came down my momma's cheek
- the look on my bridesmaid's faces when they walked into the room and i was in my dress
- that feeling of when we zipped up the dress and it was loose - all that hard work in the gym had truly paid off.
- my 88 year old granny walking into the bridal suite for the first time
- my baby cousin telling me I looked like a princess
-the smoothness of the day, everything went so perfect
-My something old - my grandfather's handkerchief sewn into my wedding dress
-My Something blue - a blue piece of my decreased papaw's robe, sewn into the shape of a heart
-My Something borrowed - my grandmother's gorgeous pear shaped diamond ring, the last gift given to her by my papaw. I wore it on my left hand. It's stunning!
-My something new - my wedding dress, veil and earrings

All photos by the AHHHMAZING Amy Campbell (formerly of AAP) and now with Amy Campbell Photography. Lex gals - she's the bomb and an absolute sweetheart. I seriously can't say enough great things about her! She also did our engagement photos that you can see here, here and here.

Hair and Makeup by Ana Crane of ACS. Y'all - she's awesome at what she does. Total genius and so much fun to be around. I respect her so much as an artist and a person.  

Ok enough talking - enjoy the photo dump :-)
