This post is a month and a half overdue, I know. I’m still waiting on all of the photos from the photographer, but I managed to steal these from her blog.We got married on October 22nd, 2011. The location was Camp Seely, a campsite with cabins that my family has been going to pretty much every year since I was in elementary school. I planned pretty much every detail myself. The food was made by my cousin and her husband, along with various friends and family who lent a hand in the camp kitchen. The official photographer was a classmate from elementary school while several of my uncles took pictures as well. I wanted to make sure the pressure was off of my photographer uncle to just relax and have fun.
I cannot thank everyone who helped enough. My bridesmaids, Blaine’s mom and family friend arranged the flowers and made all the bouquets from the flowers we picked up at the flower market in downtown LA the day before. Blaine’s mom did a ton from sewing the napkins to helping collect jars and plates. My sister helped me with tons of details the weeks leading up to the wedding like the treats we put in jars as favors. I could go on and on about all the help we had, but it would take eons. We are soo lucky to have friends and family who are ready and willing to lend a helping hand.
All in all it was perfect. The photographer and hair stylist even mentioned that they were amazed at how calm and happy everyone was and that people weren’t running around stressed out. I made it a point to enjoy the entire day leading up to the wedding because it had been something I had been planning my entire life and mostly for the last several months.
Without further adieu, the amazing wedding photos. About half the guests spent the night in one of the 60 cabins we rented out, so I’ll eventually be posting photos from the rest of the weekend as well.
