Becoming Mrs. Cheese

(Click to enlarge pictures - in fact, they are WAY better enlarged)

A morning at the salon - mom, me, and MIL. It's a pretty good bet that at any given point that monring, one, two or all of us were crying.





Dev and me, pre-makeup. Can you tell?


Ellen


My flower girl and Cheese's niece, Kennedy.


Ah, much better - makeup almost complete!


The main room - the wedding was at a resturant, so ceremony was held in the main room, and later broken down to house the tables.




Me.


Trying to squeeze in some pictures in the side garden pre-ceremony, before Cheese saw me. At this moment, he is just houses away at the corner bar, buying shots of whiskey for the groomsmen.


Me and my brother Nolan, doing what we do best - me telling him what to do, him pleading innocent.


Me and El. She look soooooo glamorous.


Me and Dev. She looked straight up sexy hot.


My final moments with my ladies of the same last name.


This was actually taken afterwards (note Cheese in the picture), but my little Nugget (ring bearer) was rockin' his green Chucks, so I had to put it in!

Me and the ladies. I selected gold-ish jewlery for my sisters (co-matrons of honor -Ellen with the flower necklace and Devin's earrings) while I selected the blue tear-drop necklaces for Adrienne and Anne-Marie. They selected their own dresses - simple black jersey knits. Ellen did all the flowers - mine, bridesmaids, and centerpieces. They were amazingly beautiful and simple.




Last moments of freedom....


I die.


My mom walked me down the aisle. You can't tell by this picture, but see those stairs right behind us? We had to walk up them, and I tripped on the second to top step, on the hem of my dress. My smile here was actually me laughing at myself and asking my mom is my boobs were still in the dress. They were.





Please note Cheese already openly crying.





Still crying.....


Reading his vows...still crying.....


Ah, sweet kisses!!


And like that, about seven minutes in total, the whole ceremony was over. As the officiant (Cheese's friend Jon) announced, "You may kiss the bride," we played Josh Turner's "Will You Go With Me?" as we recessed down the aisle.



A candid moment.


And now, for the first time, introducing.....



Mr. and Mrs. Big Cheese!






Now onto the reception, and where the REAL fun begins......
