This was absolutely the best day of my life. Everything went PERFECT. I spent a year planning & I had an amazing team behind me. I would of been lost without my mom, sister, and mother in law.  And most importantly, my husband was amazing to me during this time of planning.

Here are a few pictures of my BIG DAY:

My bridesmaid & I made signs and put them all over the venue.

The Belle House

My Center Aisle & a few pictures of the outside.

I put a picture of my mom & dads wedding day to symbolize the Bride side & a picture of Phillip's parents on the other side of the aisle to symbolize his side. I used lemons down the center aisle, yellow poms draped by damask ribbon and yellow rose pedals. Down the sidewalk, I had black and yellow windmills and a clothes line of pictures.

We made the favor boxes ourselves-gluing every thing on and putting them together, my husband designed the menu cards & my sister folded every linen.

My Candy Table

The best cake :)

I didn't trust anyone else to do my make-up, my cousin Shelley did the final touches.

My dad bought me this ring when I was born, I wore it on my dress for my "something old"

My mom made me hair accessory.

My sister bought me beautiful yellow diamond chandelier earrings as a gift.

I wore the one my mom wore on her wedding day.



Heather Wallace, the best wedding director I know! When I say it went perfect, she is why! :)

I'm so thankful for wonderful pictures captured by Misty Deblasio & my sister Amanda Paige Photography so I can look back on that day!
