Details: got married in March 2005, in Joliet, IL (Southwest of Chicago) at the church my parents were married at, which was a block from the house we had lived at for the past 11 years. It was cool to walk down the street to the ceremony with my wedding party!
Reception Downtown Joliet, awesome place, great time, we spent the night at the Harrah's Casino across the street, which was nice because we didn't have to drive anywhere, and the only bad thing was I forgot extra shoes so I walked out the next morning in jeans, a t-shirt, and some lovely satin pumps! LOL!
Honeymoon, (sigh)---three weeks long, beginning in Barcelona, onto Nice, Venice, Rome, Santorini, and Athens. I believe I gained 5-7 lbs on the trip, which was acutally visible in photographs from Athens. Oh, the food....I loved Europe and I can't wait to get back one day. And at the time the Euro and dollar were about 1:1 which was great!!!
Have no clue if I'm doing this right but here goes:
The first one is me waiting to walk in with my cousin and maid of honor.
The next one is me and my husband coming out of the church after the ceremony. (Yes, he's 27 and now almost bald!!)
The next is me dancing with my dad, you can see the back of my dress....(p.s. my dress had straps I could put in at the reception, which worked out GREAT!)
And this last one is on our honeymoon in front of the Trevi Fountain...(he is holding a rose that we were badgered into buying for some ridiculous sum!!!)
