Hi Everyone!

Saturday is the big day! After 15 months of planning, my wedding is finally here!! So, that's why I haven't been on here much lately...just SO busy!! So, I'll definitely post more next week along with some pictures.

Thanks for all the well wishes from so many of you!

Cheers!
Julia

Awe, have a blast! I'm so excited for you! The best piece of advice I got about my wedding day was to make sure that you and your new hubby take 5 minutes to yourselves to just step back and take it all in. Your wedding day can be pretty overwhelming and jam-packed, and you tend to get swept in doing all the pictures and toasts and dances and whatnot. Just take a few minutes to remember what the day is about and to really ENJOY the experience together!

Congratulations, Julia! The day goes by so fast. Just have fun! My husband is a DJ and we see so many people fuss about making sure everything is perfect that they don't even have fun like they should. If i can give any advice, it's just enjoy. If something isn't perfect, who cares! Just laugh and cherish every hour of that day and the beginning of your lives together.

Congratulations, again. Wishing you the best!!!!!!!

So excited for you! Have fun! The best advice I got is, no matter how much you *think* you'll have time to sit down an enjoy the food that you meticulously choose, you won't, and if you do, you'll be too nervous/excited to enjoy it. So ask your server to make you a doggie bag. Seriously!!! When Derrick and I got to the hotel it was after midnight and we realized how much we were starving but thankfully we had doggie bags made...Cranberry Glazed Cornish Hen never tasted so good! :D

Hi Tasha! How are you doing?! More good advice. We are also having late-night appetizers brought out around 9:30/45. So I'm hoping that by that point I'll make it a point to eat. LOL!

Congrats!!!!

Hi Everyone!

Wow! My weekend was seriously out of a fairy tale!!! My entire wedding weekend couldn't have been more perfect from putting the wedding cake together with my mom, the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, getting my hair and make-up done with the girls, the ceremony and reception, to the gift opening. It was seriously wonderful and everything I could have dreamed of and more!! My mom and I did everything ourselves: from the invitations, menus and programs, to the wedding cake, flowers, and alter cloths. Seriously, everything! (Well, my brother did the groom's cake - fish.) If anything went wrong on Saturday, I didn't know it because it was fixed before I could find out. LOL!! Best of all, at the end of the day, I was married to the man of my dreams. I'm now Mrs. Jon Pearson!

Below are some pictures. We don't have any of the professional ones yet. Our photographers took a ton (good friends). They were there for EVERYTHING. They came to the rental home my mom had up at the resort on Friday at 2 and took pictures of all the 'details' and didn't leave until after the gift opening. So we'll have more than enough pictures to share. But below are just some of the good moments. Too see more, you can visit my Facebook page where there are like 3 albums created already of candids. LOL!

Hey Erin! THanks. Yes, I had 2 dresses. The 2nd was an Alfred Angelo knock-off I ordered on the web. It looked exactly the same and I was happy. I absolutely LOVED my main dress...but you are right...heavy! So it was good to have the 2nd one. I changed into it after all the formal stuff was done (dinner, cake cutting and formal dances).

Thanks!

I wish you both a lifetime of happiness! :kiss:
