~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Ok ladies!! Here's part Deux!.....
So, about 5:15Pm I was whisped away from the Grandover Resort to be taken to Castle McCulloch to get ready to marry my prince. So It was about a 10 minute ride there to the Castle. It was just me and my bestest friend in the whole wide world...MY SISSY/ Matron of Honor!
On the way we laughed, and got a little emotional. All the while , noticing that the sun was going down, and clouds were rolling in (OH NO!) ALSO, we were calling the DOC to make sure that Eric was nowhere around when we pulled up, and could not get her on the phone.
So, sissy gets on the phone and calls Eric.
.Netta: ."Hey Eric, this is Netta, We're getting ready to pull up at the Castle, where are you?"
Eric says: "In the parking lot"
Netta: "Well get out the parking lot, because you guys are not suppose to see each other yet" .
Eric: "Ok, we're going to the Mens dressing room now".
So we think that everything is in the clear UH NO!! 5 minutes after we get off the phone with Eric, we arrive in the Rolls Royce and who is in the Parking lot!!! ERIC!!! OMG!!
I start SCREAMING "NO< NO
His best man see's us coming and puts his jacket over Erics head and takes him away to the groomsman's dressign area!!
It's safe to say that we did not have a "collision"...LOL
Wew...close call!..... Anwho..here go picks of the Ceremony!
The men posing before the ceremony started
My two lovely hostess getting in place. These ladies did an awsome job!
Our customized Guestbook I had made by Shutterfly with our engagement photos! the guest LOVED it!
3 of our groomsman who helped with seating guest. I LOVE The way the white vest and black ties looked..Me and the hubsy (thanks for the word Tash) actually argued about what the groomsman was going to wear while we were planning!..LOL I won!! and he loved the way it looked! I said...see...just trust me babe...I got the "fashion" thing down packed!..LOL
The girls lining up for the ceremony! The one in the back is my Sissy! her dress was the BOMB it has a little train on it! she got lots of compliments! (all dresses came from Bari Jay)
My cute little flower girl ....that dropped NO FLOWERS!!! she walked all the way down the aisle, and did not drop any flowers!..LOl My mom was trying to whisper to her "Cailee, sprinkle your flowers", and she looked at my mom with the look or her face in this picture and said "NO...I'm saving them for my MeMe"..LOl And she went to the front, stood beside my sister and dropped ONE!!! All the guest laughed!!..LOL She's a trip!..LOL Gotta love the kiddies!
The ring bearer wore one of the ties I got from an etsy seller for $8 bucks! It fit the wedding so well!
Here comes the bride!!
Ok..at this point..it started to drizzle and I was getting worried :-( And it was SO FREAK"N humid hot outside, my feet were sweating and sliding in my shoes while I was walking DOWN hill to the ceremony! I was mumbling to my step dad "Please don't let me fall"....
Me going to meet my Prince!!! I really wish I would've added more decorations to the ceremony, and decorated the aisle.. :-( But I still loved the ceremony! I think I focused so much on the reception, that I didn 't do much to "up play" the ceremony! Oh, well....we're married and that's all that really counts right?!! DON"T FORGET ABOUT YOUR CEREMONY LADIES!
Us at the alter....Eric's hands were so sweaty!..LOL Was it the heat...or nerves?...hmmm....

While we assembled the cross, the Bishop explained the meaning of it...Guest ohhhed, and ahhhed,and was sayin "thank you god!"..I thought we was fina have some "Southern Chuch" out there!..LOL
