A quick photo of my wedding day


Quick snap that my mom took of me feeding Chris the only sweets we ate that night... although there were over 700 dozen cookies for the cookie table thanks to the efforts of our aunts, cousins, friends, and moms! That worked out to be more than 3.5 dozen cookies/guest! Unfortunately we have A LOT of cookies left over and have to figure out what to do with all of them. My mom said for the next wedding in our family we will need to be more organized and keep track of how many. I can't believe we ever thought there wouldn't be enough cookies!

I hope some people took photos of the cookie table. I only got to see it from afar.

The day was wonderful and surreal and blurry and happy. I will write more about it when I have a bit more time. But I feel so lucky to have had beautiful weather and so many people with whom to share so many moments I already cherish so deeply.

Your dress is so beautiful! I love the layers of the skirt, the beading, and how, although it's intricate, it's not bulky.

Seven hundred dozen cookies!!! Even Cookie Monster would have gotten full. :) Sounds like you have material for a zillion pie crusts if you crush them and freeze them for later.

Your dress is breathtaking and you look so gorgeous. That is a lot of cookies for sure! could you donate some of them somewhere if there are too many for you to have?
