Our Big Day: Getting Ready Before the Ceremony

The day of our wedding after going to see the progress at the reception venue, all of the ladies began the "getting ready" process.  Luckily, my sister's salon is right across the street from our church.  We all met there around 11 AM, sipped on mimosas, snacked on finger foods, and relaxed while getting pampered before heading over to the church to get dressed.  This was by far the most relaxing part of the day!  Check out the shots Abby Funderburk got during this process.

Finishing touches on my makeup.







Then, we packed up and headed across the street to the church to get dressed and ready for pictures!

As one of their gifts, I got all the bridesmaids matching monogrammed robes!

Ready to walk down the aisle to the man of my dreams!

Bradley and I took the traditional route and didn't see each other before the ceremony, 
but we did get a few pictures before without seeing each other.  These were fun!




Looking at all of these pictures makes me want to go back and relive this day even more.  
Up next is the ceremony!

You look so adorable. I love all of these shots. I agree with you about wanting to relive it all. It really is an amazing time..However getting ready was the most stressful part of the day for me! I guess my anxiety was just crazy!
