After the Run with the Bride, I headed over to the Inn that we rented down the road. It was so fun to have a whole inn just for us. It was a relaxing morning for the most part.

I definitely do not recommend my hair and makeup stylists. It was the worst vendor that we worked with. They were rude, disrespectful and they ripped me off… if you want more details, email me.

But let’s focus on the fun stuff, shall we?

Irving gave me a present!

I think I was shocked when all the girls came out of the room together. They looked amazing and I was just in awe. 🙂

Then it was time for hair…


Everything was great until it was time for the veil!

It wouldn’t stay in my hair!! And she left before it was fixed. There may have been tears. HAHA

(I love how annoyed I am in this picture. HAHA)
How many bridesmaids does it take to fix a veil?

All of them!

But finally it was fixed and we could move on…. until a Bee flew up my dress!!
It was in between the lace and the satin and it couldn’t get out! I just screamed at the top of my lungs: “DADDYYYYYYYY!”

And he came over and got it out. HAHA

There. Now I’m ready. HA

Meanwhile, Irving was getting ready too!

He got the phonecall that he had to leave the room (so I could hang out there before the wedding). We didn’t see each other until I walked down the aisle.

We hung out there til it was time! I got a phonecall from our wedding coordinator. She said, “Kelley, time to go get married!”

So we jumped in the elevator and lined up…


our wedding was about to begin!

Just a few short hours after my East Coast Shower, I was told we were doing a family dinner. I was so excited to spend time with my family. I got all dressed up. So did everyone else! The plan was to pick Mikaela up first and then head out.

But when I got to Mikaela’s house, I was surprised once again!

All my friends had gotten together for (what I thought) was a cocktail party!

We had so much fun killing a few bottles of wine!



I thought it was perfect…. but then they told me that “our ride was here”.

Clearly I was incredibly surprised and excited!!

Irving couldn’t come though….girls only! 

They got a LIMO!

MMmm.. I LOVE cake!

We had two cake places in mind when we first started looking. The first was Jacques Bakery in Manchester, NH.

The cakes were beautiful in the window!

We sampled TONS of cake there!

But we really wanted cupcakes and they were a little too pricey there.

So next up, was Cakes by the Lake.

I think we both agreed that it was love at first cupcake!

She even gave us a whole cake to bring home and share with our friends to try it out!

Everyone LOVED the cake! We had a winner!!!


We did three different flavors of cupcakes:
1.) Chocolate Cake with Coconut Frosting and Coconut Filling
2.) Yellow Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting  and Chocolate Fudge Filling 
3.) Yellow Cake with Buttercream Frosting and Buttercream filling

But we still had a top cake to cut into.

The cake topper were bride & groom kangaroos that Laurie brought back from Australia.

We ordered the cupcake liners from an online wholesaler. And we worked with Cakes by the Lake to design something that would match our Teal & Brown theme.

We even provided ribbon to decorate the cupcake stand with to match.

We were in love with how it came out.
