While we didn’t really do anything traditional, I still wanted to participate in some embarrassing bouquet + garter tossing. Obviously I wasn’t throwing my “real” bouquet since it was made out of metal (Though that would have been interesting…). Heck, I didn’t even WEAR a garter until the reception so Scott could take it off. It was hilarious.
Bouquet Toss Song (Forget “Single Ladies!” This song has special meaning with me and my ladies… from our club rat days).
All right, let’s get this party started!
Again, my planner rules. She made me a toss bouquet.
PS, this is what I look like when I tell myself to “think skinny.” Scary! LOL
Off we go! I remember trying to tell myself to throw slowly and gracefully so they would be able to take pictures.
Love everyone’s outstretched hands
CAUGHT! And, is that my mom scamming on the bouquet? Why, yes, yes it is.
The victor and my mom…
Next up, take off my garter!
Scott picked the always classy Ol’ Dirty Bastard for his song.
Yea baby… I like it raw. Shimmy Shimmy Ya!
Telling him clear instructions for how to remove the garter without showing off my business.
Can he find it?!
Love everyone right there snapping pics
Found + Removed!
All righty single dudes…
Off it goes…
Oh… we like to embarrass our friends who don’t know each other! They were totally good sports. And, I definitely believe that bouquet myth… this little lady has a great boyfriend so who knows what is in store for them?!
All right, back to the party!
First off, I LOVE this picture. He is probably telling me he has a secret for me… coming up next!

The week before the wedding I got a tattoo! We also had our beach rehearsal before having dinner, handing out bridal party gifts, and a wild after party. The morning of the wedding, I got ready and my girls worked it for the camera. We had a first look and we were off to the ceremony. I shared some candid pictures and the first part of the ceremony. The ceremony continued and then we shared our vows. We had a sand ceremony and our first kiss as husband and wife. We then threw seashells in the ocean and made a wish and took group pictures with our friends and family. We also took private shots of just my groom and I before hopping on the trolley. I shared all the details of our reception, and when we arrived, we mingled with our guests before eating dinner, ate some tasty BBQ, and gave our toasts. We had our first dance to Jason Mraz and the dance party began! I shared our playlist and then I smashed cake in my groom’s face. We did shots every hour and we gave out our favors.
