We had decided to go the traditional route and not see each other before the ceremony. Nick packed up after dinner and I had a girl's night with my best friends. I was up at the crack of dawn on Saturday and ready to get married! After a morning by the pool (and getting really excited when I saw the delivery of my flowers!) I had an appointment to get my hair done at the resort salon. I brought pictures of the 'do I wanted, but was very careful to explain that I wanted it soft and down and not at all a stiff up-do. After a few misfires, I knew that we were not on the same page but, luckily for me, my wonderful cousin saved the day and redid my hair once we got back to the hotel room. (Thank you, Lauren!) Believe it or not, this little snafu was the only thing the entire week that did not go exactly according to plan!
I was so excited getting ready!!
Finally it was time, and down to the beach we went. My sweet friend Morgan was able to capture this moment of Nicholas waiting for the ceremony to start. It might be my most favorite picture ever taken of Nick.
Everything was perfect! We are so thankful that so many of our friends were able to come down and celebrate with us!

Our wedding party. These are the best friends that you could ask for!
