I walked in to find this STUNNNNNNNNING dress!
reading the card Jim got her… she couldn’t read through it without crying. Aunt Precy to the rescue!
One of my favorites
Their rings were SO cool! Pauline wanted super unique rings. Jim wanted something a little more conservative. So… they compromised! These things are hinged. When they open… they display a personalized message. When closed… they look like normal wedding bands. See… told you they were cool! Two questions to pauline+jim. One: what does it say? Two: where did you get them… I know that our blog readers will want to know
The marriage certificate had a “condition” category. Jim’s is listed as “bachelor” and Pauline’s, “spinster.” HA!
Jay, Pauline’s brother, right before the ceremony. I wonder what he was thinking about. Could it be… “I really do love my sister and do not regretting cutting off a foot of my hair so that her day is just a little more perfect.” ?
KISS THE GIRL! Did anyone else just think of Sebastian from “The Little Mermaid”Yeah… I’m a dork.
The Jamaican way of cutting the cake
Uhm… are you KIDDING ME?! FAAAAAAAAVORITE!!!!!!
ANOOOOOOOOTHER FAAAAAAAAVORITE!!!!!!This might be my favorite jump shot of all time.
Then we all took a few hour break in between the ceremony and late night reception. How SWEEEEEEET is Jim?!
We met up for a few more portraits before the reception… Hey, we couldn’t resist!Don’t they look so serene?
NEGRIL, JAMAICA. It’s another blog post that starts with… “WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN?!” WOWZERS what an AWESOME experience THAT was!Now, we always leave weddings feeling like we need to go to our bride and grooms family reunions because usually in such a short period of time we become so close to the families/friends. It’s like we have 100 different sets of parents. Wow, I’m getting more and more strange by the second. Whatever… deal with my strangeness. Anyway… this wedding was definitely not an exception. There were about 25 guests, great families, fun friends…. and us.Our bride and grooms do such an amazing job of not making us feel like vendors. We’re SO damn lucky!
PAULINE!!!!! I FLIPPING LOVE YOU!!!!! Pauline is SO full of life, personality, smiles, and sweetness. Oh, and bonus… she’s GORGEOUS! She has beautiful big brown eyes, a HUGE smile and she’s so teeeeeny. AHHH!! SO CUTE!!!
Jim Jim Jim…Jim and my Mikey are two peas in a pod. Sincere, friendly, laid-back, attentive and well… just an awesome person. Jim and Mike are both super technical, smart and analytical. Afterall, Jim’s an engineer. Their relationship reminds us SO much of ours. So of course we love being around them! Duh.
Pauline got ready in RECORD timing! 45 minutes! YES… you heard that right, FORTY-FIVE MINUTES! When she told me about her timeline, I thought she was crazy… NEVER have I seen makeup, hair and dress in less than two hours. WOW! But, she did it, was gorgeous… and everything was perfectly on time.
My favorite part of their wedding? Their vows. I LOVE when a bride and groom write their own! It’s rare…I remember at one point Jim said, “the easiest decision I’ve ever made was asking you to be my wife.”Pauline was… GO FIGURE… SO STINKIN’ CUTE during her vows! She started reading them and IMMEDIATELY started crying. She kept laughing at herself exclaiming, “I cannot believe I’m crying.. I’m a mess!”I guess that they made a bet… she didn’t think she’d cry… he was sure she would… HE WON!I loved every second
The day after their wedding, we ran into them for breakfastI asked what THEIR favorite part of the day was. They said that they had talked about it the night before and Jim couldn’t think of one particular thing… but it was all just perfect. Pauline said that she had two favorite parts.One: dancing with their guests at the reception. And Two… when Mike and I were taking their bride and groom photos.HOW NEAT IS THAT?! I said, “REALLY?! WOW!” She said it was so great to have some alone time with Jim… and that all of the kissing was a bonus.That response made my week.
I’m sad… I miss them.Enough about that…
