I know, I left you hanging there for a bit about the wedding. We actually had to postpone it because of the fires. It was extremely smokey and I didn’t want my family or the venders to be in that poor air quality! We actually had a full day that was completely orange from the smoke and fires. It was a very eerie day (hella depressing). Anyways, I was super bummed out about it but deep down I kind of knew I wouldn’t have gotten married that day. I didn’t know why I felt that way at first, but I just had an inkling that it wasn’t going to happen. I was experiencing extreme anxiety weeks before the wedding. Didn’t help that I hated the dress that I had gotten at David’s Bridal.
So…lets begin. I tried on that David’s Bridal dress a few weeks before the wedding just for fun. I hated it. I mean, I kind of already didn’t like it when I got it anyways but like, I really hated it. It wasn’t my style to begin with and I felt like it made me look like a line backer or something. Didn’t flatter my body at all, especially my broad shoulders. So, off I went and made an appointment at BHLDN. I originally had an appointment there before I got my DB dress but cancelled it. I highly regret that now because I could have found the perfect dress a while ago. Anyways, I ended up finding my perfect dress. I felt so good in it. But there was a catch, BHLDN doesn’t sell their dresses physically in-store. So I had to ship it and find someone who would alter it in ONE WEEK. I got the dress in five days and came across the sweetest woman on Yelp who tailored my dress in five days. She did amazing and I am so grateful for her.
Fast forward to the day of the wedding, it turned out amazing. The weather was freaking perfect and the skies were crystal clear. I had zero anxiety leading up to the day. I was filled with so much joy and excitement beforehand which makes me happy to look back on. I’m glad I had such a small wedding. It’s totally our style. My bouquet was amazing and so so beautiful, and so were the flowers on the altar. Jesse looked freaking handsome as heck and Levi was the cutest ever!! I’m waiting for our professional photos to be ready but have to wait a few weeks until we get them. We stayed in Sausalito the night before the wedding and also stayed there an extra night for a small honeymoon. We went out to eat at this restaurant right on the water and it was our first time doing that (I’ve always wanted to eat at a fancy restaurant on the water!). We drank some rose and ate good. We were so tired, though, that we went back to the hotel after and just relaxed before we went out and walked along the street and ventured through the cute tourist shops. We had a really good time and I’m excited to go back one day. It’s not like it’s far from home but we don’t usually go out that way anyways.
I still can’t believe we are now married! It’s such an awesome feeling. I honestly didn’t think I’d feel any different. I think about it every day since, and I’m just so overwhelmed with happiness and love. I love being married to my best friend!
