You may kiss the bride...

We did it! On October 8th Michael and I were married in Las Vegas in the company of a few immediate family members.
We tied the knot at the MGM Grand, they had a "Hollywood Glamour" package that was just perfect for us. I'm not sure if I've really mentioned it here but I am a total sucker for the 30's & 40's era. The starlets, the fedoras, the movies, the music... Le sigh...
Ah so the package, hair & make-up at Cristope Salon, live pianist (played As Time Goes By, during the ceremony) All white bouquet of Cala Lilies, Stargazer Lilies (did I ever mention how much I love lilies) roses, orchids and tulips. And a studio photography session after.
The staff at the MGM Forever Grand Wedding chapel were so amazing! Angela, our coordinator, helped us pull together the wedding in just one month's time, she was so helpful, nice, patient, bubbly every time we spoke! Plus, when one of the buttons popped on my husband's tux, she was there needle and thread in hand to mend it for him while he panicked.
Before this post starts to sound like an ad for the MGM's wedding services.... I will share pictures!( < flickr set)

It was beautiful. The pictures came out so well I have trouble picking out a few favorites. I think the two of us pull off the black & white old style look pretty nicely. I mentioned to my grandmother how handsome he was in his tux, he reminded me of a young Gregory Peck and I felt like Joan Bennett during her femme fatal era. Maybe a little Ava Gardner. Our mini-honeymoon was great. I have tons of things about Vegas to share, pictures and stories and such. I'm still battling the black-plague equivalent of a head cold (goin on over a week now), so it may be a while before I get back to semi-regular posting.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my happy moment!
