Wedding Day Recap: Just a Girl + A Boy (part one)

It's finally here! All the photos and an hour-by-hour (or close enough) recap of our wedding day! Part one! There are a million photos I want to share with you (don't worry! I weeded out a few dozen), so I'm having to break the wedding day recap up into two separate blog posts!

Today, we'll go through the day, from waking up to saying "I do"! Tomorrow, we'll party ;)

7a | Room Service Wake-Up Call & Breakfast In Bed

I spent the night before the wedding with some of the most incredible friends and got to snuggle my soon-to-be sister-in-law! It was the greatest! We had an early morning start and wanted to make sure we ate, so we ordered room service for breakfast the night before! We woke up to room service knocking at our door right at 7a and had breakfast in bed!! Best. Alarm. Ever. It was seriously the most wonderful way to start the day! Then I hopped in the shower before heading out ... because you know, you should at least shave your legs for wedding day!

 
 

8:15a | Oh heyyy, ladies!

All of the girls met in the hotel lobby right at 8:15a to head to the salon!

9a | Hair Pretties + Gifts for the Bride

Hair began right at 9a at the salon in downtown Asheville. We had hair/makeup going on from 9a-2p, so while each girl was getting her hair done, the rest of us hung out in the cutest bridal room! We had champagne! Mom brought Panera for lunch (yes!) and throughout the morning, I received the sweetest notes and gifts from my soon-to-be hubba hubba hubby, delivered by his amazing groomsmen!

The first gift was a dozen long-stem roses (swoon!). The second gift was a box of a dozen of the most amazing chocolate truffles from French Broad Chocolate in downtown Asheville (he knows the way to my heart). And the third gift was 3 bottles of wine: one for our honeymoon, one for our first year anniversary, and one for our fifth anniversary. Heart. Melted. Can we get married already?!

 
 

2:30p | All Prettied Up!

Once hair and makeup was complete, we headed back to the hotel to get dressed & ready for photos with the fabulous Hope Taylor!!!!

3p | It's time to get ready!!

Let the party begin :)

 
 

3:45p | Pop the Bubbly!

We hopped aboard the shuttle to the venue and started right away with photos and champagne!!

Life Lesson: When someone hands you a bottle of champagne, don't chug it. Instead .. sip .. like a boss! (...keep scrolling)!!! :)

 
 

6p | Let's get marriiieeeddd!!!

There are no words. That view. These people. That man. My heart.
