Our wedding day, unfortunately, did not go as smoothly. We'd planned for an outdoor ceremony in a garden gazebo, had it all nicely decorated and ready to go... and then it RAINED! Not just light sprinkling, but pouring cats and dogs rain. We didn't even have a plan B, because it so rarely rains in SoCal. In fact, it hadn't rained for weeks before and didn't rain again for weeks after our wedding... but we picked the lucky six-hour window! Well, at least they say it's good luck, right?
Here are some highlights from the wedding...

Hope you enjoyed the quick fly-by! Some quick notes... my dress was a Casablanca, ordered in size 2 with exact hollow-to-hem measurement (so no hemming required) and then altered to fit. I wasn't very satisfied with my alterations experience, but that's a story for another day. My shoes were the Chinese Laundry Baldwin, which have an almost 5" heel but were amazingly comfortable thanks to a high platform (my bridesmaids were both 5'5" so I needed the extra height!).
Sorry for the mostly people-less pics, the hubs isn't ready for prime time yet, so I guess I'll have to hog all the attention :) Speaking of which, I'll leave you with a posey engagement pic:
I know most couples take candid engagement pics nowadays, but being the fobs-at-heart that we are, we went the traditional route and took reeeeally Asian studio pics with multiple dress/makeup/hairstyle changes and random backgrounds. The rest of the pics are so cheesy, I'll spare you for now :)
