Today’s post is all about getting pretty! After spending the morning of the vow renewal at Vis-a-Vis Salon in Buckhead getting our hair done, it was back to the hotel to get ready.
I am so lucky that one of my best friends, Marcella, is an esthetician. She always does an absolutely perfect job on my makeup!
I was a two-dress “bride” – that’s a story for another post. The gown that we chose for me to wear in the portraits is Lucia by Claire Pettibone. My best friend in the world and my other half, my sister, helped me dress.
Funny story. When we were leaving Chicago, I gave a good friend who was coming to Atlanta for the vow renewal a key to our apartment in case we forgot anything. A day or so after Christmas, I realized that I did indeed forget something: my wedding ring! I called her, she brought it, all was well.
My lips look all Julia Roberts in this picture and I kinda dig it. My lips are not at all Julia Roberts in real life.
Because the shoes that I was set to wear with this dress were ballroom shoes, I actually wore my sister’s Kate Spade heels for these photos and the walk to the venue.
Per usual, my crackberry was grand central station:
The boys were off in another room getting pretty as well! This is our “officiant” and one of our best friends, John:
Our best man, J.:
My hubby – looking hawt:
And we can’t forget the real star of the show – Charlie!!! Charlie had gotten a bath and fluff at the Atlanta Dog Spa for the occasion. He does not yet have his bow tie on in this photo but I L-O-V-E it so I had to post it. Look at his adorable fluffy paws!
Who was with you when you were getting ready?
