Wedding Wednesday

7/10/2013


From the second my girlfriends picked me up Friday morning of my bachelorette, the weekend was filled with sweet surprises that really show how well my friends know me. Since it was such a special weekend (and since I have so many photos), I'll do a series of posts (hope you don't mind). 

First up: day one in Santa Barbara. We were lucky enough to stay at my bridesmaid Whitney's family beach house in Carpenteria and spent the day on the beach waiting for everyone to arrive. I was greeted with one of my favorite cocktails, decorations and a goody bag, and flowers from my fiancĂ© - and the day only got better.

See more after the jump.




Like I said, my girlfriends know me well so there were no surprises by men in faux fireman uniforms, but there was a tiara with a veil, a blow-up husband we named Eddie (the box showed a muscular brunette, but what can you do?), and plenty of time spent on the gorgeous beach. Next week: night one!
