i've been putting off blogging the wedding day, but for no particular reason. although maybe it's because i didn't think i'd taken a lot of pictures - again, just trying to live in the moment and enjoy the day to the fullest - and the official photos have a turnaround time of TWELVE weeks.
oh well. that just means i'll do another post in a couple of months after those have arrived and i get the couple's blessing to share. meanwhile, as it turns out, i actually do have a pretty good number of photos and so here we go!
the guys had an 8am tee time, while the old lady and i had an 8:30 spa appointment for some pampering. i threw on a dress i'd bought at the roxy store during our shopping trip a couple of days before and headed out the door.
i headed up to the resort and met with the old lady, and tried to smash down all the emotions i was already experiencing.
these were the essential oil themes we were invited to choose from for our spa experience. i went with "inspire," while she chose "meditation."
we were shown to the waiting area and then it was just a few minutes before our therapists came to get us.
my room had a lovely view, although i guess it was mostly wasted because my eyes were closed for most of the time i was in it. we'd booked a package that included a sugar scrub, full body massage and then foot treatments. it was lovely.
i was done first, and kicked back on one of the lounge chairs to take in the view and wait for my daughter to join me.
