We are going to go a bit backward here and see some pics from the rehearsal and before the ceremony. Sorry! That's what happens when you use two different cameras :)
Aimee with her bow bouquet at the church for the rehearsal.
Love her Minnie dress! In the background you can see the slideshow Aimee's mom put together. It was so cute!
Getting all the info for the next day.
After the rehearsal, we went to dinner at Aimee's favorite place, Caruso's! Getting there was quite an adventure since it is on 4th Ave and 4th Ave is all torn up with construction right now. Luckily, I made it with a little direction from my good friend Aimee :)
One hot mama :)
Victoria and Aimee. (Victoria is about 5 months pregnant but you would never know it, she was such a trooper!)
The three amigas. We are missing our fourth amiga Jenn. We missed you!!!
Skip to the next day. We met Aimee at Lowe's Ventana Canyon resort at about 9:00 am the next day. We had a full day of beauty ahead of us. Lucky for us, Aimee had a suite for us to use for the day so we could get ready in style! We wanted to just stay there all day :)
Check out this view!!!
Speaking of gorgeous! Aimee getting her hair done. The girl who did her hair and makeup (Scarlet, I think) was amazing!
Very important champagne and strawberries :)
The bridesmaid cake. This was a fun tradition that I was totally unaware of. Charms are baked in to the cake and then we each pull one and it tells a fortune! So cool! I pulled the stars and moon. I thought that was very appropriate for me :) Thanks Aimee!
And, of course, we needed something to wash the cake down with :)
THE dress. I was so happy Aimee found such a perfect dress for her.
The finished hairdo. So pretty!
Love this shot of Aimee getting in to her dress.
Lacing up the back.
Putting on the veil. Aimee's mom MADE this!! It was amazing!
Aimee and her mom.
Ok so now we skip ahead to the reception :)
The chess cake. How cute is that? James was way jealous.
The bride and groom entering the reception.
Think Aimee is happy? ;)
Yeah, I think so ;)
The first dance.
Father daughter dance.
Cutting the cake. I didn't get a good shot of the groom's cake but you can kind of see it in the background, it is a Nascar cake.
Getting ready to fed each other the cake.
I tried to get Aimee to smash it in Robert's face but I think she was afraid that then he would do it to her.
Awww too sweet!
Aimee's Jimmy Choos!
Aimee dancing with James.
Robert was getting down! Gangnam Style, whatever that is.
I really don't think I have ever seen Aimee so happy :)
He's got it!
When the reception was over, instead of throwing rice or bird seed, we did sparklers!
It was a beautiful wedding and an awesome reception. I know that Aimee and Robert are going to have an amazing life together! Congratulations my friends!!! :)
