we will be celebrating at gurneys resort in montauk  for three full days, very excited! we could really use some time away from our regular busy world. here is a little backstory if you werent at the coolest wedding to ever go down:

995756_10153007506380058_1708706694_n

our ceremony and reception was held at cowfish restaurant in hampton bays right on the water…simply beautiful place with an award winning chef, the #1 reason we booked was because of the wonderful food! the day before the wedding was the most insane, hectic, and down right brutal rain storm i have ever seen!! i was so worried since our entire wedding was outside, but the morning of the clouds cleared and the sun came out to say hi! the whole time getting ready for the ceremony, the only time i cried was when i saw the sun finally arrived 🙂 our entire bridal party was great and everyone looked amazing, it was a great morning!

greg and i never discussed exchanging gifts on the day of the wedding, and still surprised each other with cool new tech gadgets! i got him the new ipad (at the time) that he was drooling over, i knew he would love it since he was asking for it for months…

…but greg got me the most amazing gift, a digital camera that pushed me into the profession i have always wanted!!! he even had my cutie pie flower girl/niece/goddaughter/love of my life bring me the camera (although it took alot for her to carry that heavy package LOL) i was so beyond happy, almost forgot about the ceremony lol

we had two ring bearers, my nephew and gregs nephew…

i love all the kids in my life, and trust me between my nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends kids there are A LOT of them…but i have a very special connection with SJ aka my peanut – he is the sweetest, most loving boy i have ever met!! in the video of the day, you can actually see him pulling on my brothers tux because all he wanted to do was give me a big hug and kiss <3

only a hand full of people that were invited to the wedding had ever been there before the big day, so all who were new to it was in for a great surprise…the restaurant really is beautiful in the perfect marina setting, and the day ended up being picturesque. i arrived at the ceremony by boat with my father which was a cool surprise for our guests and my hubby 🙂

1000465_10153007510200058_1532826052_n

the ceremony was beautiful, i will never forget the look on gregs face when he saw me come around that bend… my cousin jennifer who i am very close with and gregs brother did a reading, we read our own vows to each other, and our first kiss was magical!!!! everything went off without any problems…

so pretty much what i am trying to say is my wedding was everything i ever dreamed of 🙂

there were a few downsides to my wedding day as sad as it is to say, but nothing is perfect…

24630_221135404705358_945324110_n

2 months before the big day, my aunt judy passed away suddenly. it was a very hard time for my entire family, and she was extremely missed. RIP titi <3 our wedding day was also the last family event that gregs uncle bobby was able to attend, as he was very sick with an aggressive cancer. bobby was very loved by his family, and even tho he wasnt my blood he meant a lot to me. bobby was gregs godfather, and hes still taking his passing pretty hard as is the rest of the family.

1001686_10153007638765058_1762718404_n

rip-titi-dol

the only thing i would change about my wedding day was one of my brothers choosing not to show up because of family problems. i was distracted most of the day watching the door hoping he would walk in, and when he didnt i was crushed. i have finally come to the realization that it was his choice and there is nothing i can do to change it so might as well move on and not let it eat me up inside! such is life right?? above all else i had an amazing time, and so did all my loved ones who decided to show up and support me and my husband 🙂

944521_10153007559015058_1497392702_n

we didnt get to take our honeymoon to jamaica until 6 months after the wedding due to our hectic summer jobs, but the trip was well worth the wait! happy anniversary to the most amazing man i have ever met, i love you baby. now i am ready to shut off our phones and enjoy the sun and sand for the next few days! hope you enjoyed 🙂

    Your wedding was GORGEOUS, girl. My sister’s wedding is less than 2 months away and I really needed to read this because I’m having a hard time getting focused (I’m the MOH). I want her to have a special day like you did and I want to do everything in my power to help make that happen for her. Just the encouragement I needed! Thanks, and Happy SITS Day! 🙂
