September 18, the BIG day! I woke up at around 5 in the morning to prepare because the hair and make-up person was set to arrive at 7. Everything was such a blur. I had my make-up and hair and then dressed while every member of the bridal party prepared as well.
We were running late and so we hastily came down the hotel lobby as the limousine arrived. We were at the church in 15 minutes or so. The ceremony was brief and we had our photos taken outside the church.
The bridal party then proceeded to Hartford City Hall for more photo shoots while the guests proceeded to the Society Room of Hartford for cocktails. And then at around half past noon, the program commenced. There was dancing, drinking, photo booth and costumes galore, and of course the garter and bouquet tossing.
At 4 in the afternoon, the reception ended but there was an after party at a nearby pub. Again, drinking and eating! But at around 8, my mom, my sister and I were dead tired and so we headed back to the hotel.
Sunday, we checked out of the hotel and headed back to North Haven. While resting, I had the time to upload all the photos taken while on this trip on my Facebook account. For dinner, we went to an Italian restaurant because my brother-in-law promised me that he would introduce me an Italian dish called Gnocchi and boy, it sure was delicious!
