Wedding Week Guest Post: Kristin

WOW, here we are at the end of WEDDING WEEK!

WHERE has the time gone??!!?

My last guest post is from the FABULOUS Kristin whom I completely adore. I found her blog via her beeb Mrs Clo and I was hooked from the beginning. She is funny, beautiful, an awesome wife and superstar mom to her lil girl.

Oh and did I mention she was my wedding/program vendor?!?!

YUP! I worked with Kristin and her awesome company PaperEvent to create the invitations and programs of my dreams. She and everyone else were SO amazing to work with and I loved everything they created. If you're in the market for ANY kind of invitation design totally hit her up, you won't be disappointed I PROMISE!

Thanks for the awesome wedding invitations/programs and for posting Kristin!

Hey there Pink Persistence readers! My name is Kristin and I am stopping by from my blog, Busy Bee. While Pinky is off, ya know, getting married and stuff she asked me to take over her blog for a day and share my wedding day. 

I was married on November 5, 2011 and it was without a doubt the best day of my life, and I'm not just saying that! I feel like people have to say that their wedding was the best day of their life, but mine really truly was. 

I started my day bright and early surrounded by my mom, sisters and best friends. We had breakfast, coffee, blasted music (mostly Britney Spears), got pampered and wedding day ready. 

The morning went by in a flash, and all of a sudden it was time to put on "The Dress".
This was the moment when it really sunk in...."today is my wedding day".

After an essential champagne toast, me and my girls were ready and off to see my groom. 

Our first look was a surreal moment. I was so nervous for Jason to see me for the first time, but it was after we were together that all my nerves went away and I really enjoyed the day. 

After what felt like an eternity of family, wedding party and bride & groom photos...
...it was finally time to walk down the aisle. 

We were married in a beautiful little church in Minneapolis in a beautiful ceremony where we vowed in front of all the people we loved to be together forever. 

Once the ceremony was over it was party time - we spent an hour with just our wedding party taking more photos and enjoying a couple (or a lot) of drinks in the limo. 

We rejoined our guests for dinner, very special speeches from my dad and our best friends, and our first dance as husband and wife. 

It was such an incredible day and one I won't soon forget. People always say that having all the people that mean most to you in the world all in one room is an experience unlike any other and it's totally true. One of my favorite moments from our wedding day was sitting at the head table, looking out and seeing all of my friends and all of my family all there to celebrate me and my new husband. Now I will forever tell brides-to-be to find that moment at some point during their day (got that Pinky?) 

Thank you all for stopping by today and thank you to Pinky for letting me reminisce about my big day. If you aren't sick of my wedding yet, take a look at this trailer for our wedding video (which I've watched like 100 times).

What a beautiful wedding you had. Love the dress. I wished I had been brave enough to pick non-white shoes ;-)
