J & A Chronicles:
The Night Before "I Do"

It was FINALLY the night before becoming a MRS! For 2 days, I was so anxious, I could hardly eat. The morning of the rehearsal, we loaded up our vehicles and made the 2 hour trip North to the Naval Base where the wedding was being held.
As soon as we got there, we were able to check-in and decorate the reception hall. Most of the people who drove up with us, went to check-in while my mom, sister and I decorated the hall. It wasn't difficult and it was a joy to see all the months of hard work come together. J and one of his groomsmen decorated above the dance floor, like I wanted.  here's a peek -- you'll see more later =)
I was running (literally) all over the place to make sure everyone knew where they needed to be to set up things and where people were staying. All of a sudden it was time to rehearse. Everyone looked so great -- except me, haha! I looked a little stressed and tired!        
After the rehearsal, we invited anyone from out of town (which was everyone haha) who wanted to join us to the Rehearsal Dinner.  I'm glad our out of town friends and family were able to attend so that we could spend a little time together. =)
     
This was the last picture we took together before seeing each other at the aisle!! =) I can't wait to start sharing all our wedding pictures and stories!!
Happy Friday Everyone!!
