I had an Amazing Day today!! Let me tell you the whole story; It started like this:
Yesterday afternoon, Mom and I drove to Charleston because we had to be at Drayton Hall this morning at 9am for my bridal portraits! We got turned around once and had to call Jeremy for directions, typical. lol. I knew this was going to happen. I always get lost. What was really funny was that I had my GPS and I had printed out directions from mapquest. But they were conflicting with each other, go figure. But we made it to the Comfort Inn in one piece. The room was huge! When we walked in there was even a jacuzzi tub right there in the room! Mom and I looked at it and then busted out laughing!!
So we got settled, got out all of our potions and lotions, watched a little tv, and fluffed out my dress so that it wouldn't wrinkle. Then we got hungry. (wait for it folks) Mom didn't want to drive anywhere so I was like okay. We looked across the street from the hotel parking lot and we see Myabi's Japanese restaurant. So we were like "oooo, sushi; and we can walk!" People, this place was right across the street from our hotel but could we just walk across the street to go and sit down to eat? NO. There were fences, and more fences, and barbed wire on some of those fences. We had to walk a good 6 or 7 blocks to get to the freakin restaurant we could literally throw a stone at from our window. ROFL! If it was that easy, it wouldn't have been us. Dinner was actually really good. We were stuffed by the end of dinner. And then we had to walk all the way back to the hotel. hahaha.
After showering and getting ready for bed, I was just too excited to sleep. So I kept waking up like every 3 hours. lol. I couldn't help it! When the alarm went off at 6:30am I did not really want to get up but then the excitement kicked in again and I was up and getting ready. Mom did my hair (after a cup of coffee of course) and then we went downstairs to get breakfast.
At 8:30 we checked out and got everything in the car. We made it to Drayton Hall and I gotta tell you , I love the entrance to the Hall. It was like you were being transported to another time. :) We met Natalie Baker and she showed us to the Library to get dressed. My dress fits!! yay!! we got it zipped and I was so happy. Mom did all of my makeup and I had the perfect jewelry; mom went shopping with me and we got some pearl and amethyst earrings and a drop pearl necklace. And I got to wear my veil! Mom worked so hard on it and I think it looked beautiful! I never actually got to see myself in all my wedding wear so I can't wait to see the pictures!
Taking the pictures was Amazing! I felt like a model! I think one of my favorite parts of the day was when a group of school kids saw me. They just stared and waved to me! It was so cute! Then when we were walking past them, one little girl said I looked like a "Fairy Princess" and another little girl said "no, it's Cinderella!" That made me so happy! I really can't wait to see the pictures! Then the hard part will be trying to pick out my favorites and narrowing those down to the one we will have blown up on a canvas for the reception. =)
Exactly 3 more months till the big day!!!!
