our wedding: getting ready

The day started off with our hair appointment at 10 am. Then at noon we arrived at the venue, where my M.O.H. and I started to get ready.

Doing my own makeup was something I decided from the beginning. I didn't want to look too made-up, but I wanted to look special on my wedding day. So a few months prior to the wedding, I went to Saks 5th Avenue to get some advice and tips on applying makeup. I never had much experience and I was always intimidated by my asian eyelids. I felt like my results were good - natural looking, but noticeable.

Oddly enough, my final choice of dress was probably the farthest from the first image I had when I started to look for my dress. BUT, I love it!

I made my jewelry for the wedding day. I'm not a very flashy person, so I thought small white agate beads would look beautiful with my dress. I ended up not wearing the necklace because we felt it took away from the neckline of my dress.

I found these cute polka dot shoes on zappos. and I really love them. Then we found a cute polka dot tie for T to match.

and I knew I couldn't last all day in heels, so I bought these adorable flats.
