the big day...part two...primping and preaning time

The wedding day started early, with Paul and I taking everything needed
to the reception venue, picking up the Man of Honour and heading
over to Aja's hotel where her and bridesmaid Jena spent the night.
First order of the day...
Champagne and orange juice of course!
 Here Aja, Jena and Man of Honour Warren, share a toast...
Aja has known Warren since they were teenagers and have been through
many milestones together...he`s like part of our family...Chris came
to the wedding from the UK....cheers kids!
 While us ladies went to get our hair done, the lads put out snacks...
we needed fuel (besides champagne!) for the day that's for sure!
Back from the Blow and Go hair salon, it was down to some serious prep and preen time...
 Just about there...a few more nibbles...
...one more look before the Italian shoes are on...
...the finishing touches...
Something blue.
Bellasimo!!
Here's the bridal party...Winnie, Sandi, Chris, Warren, Jena and the blushing bride, Aja...
Meanwhile back at the house...
Paul and his mom share a tender moment...
