Our Wedding Day: A Special Gift

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll let the photos tell this story.

Our Wedding: My Ensemble and Meet the Girls!

As promised, here's my ensemble for the best day of my life:

And we can't forget these:

I wish there were words to describe how comfortable these are! Okay, so there are....can you believe I managed to stay in them until we left the reception?!?!?!? Yep! And I danced. And danced. And danced some more! Believe it or not, I actually lead the stroll line with my awesome Sorority Sisters (pictures to come)! In the Loubs!

And, the day would not have been complete without these gorgeous ladies:

It's all about the shoes!

Did I mention that we also had some GORGEOUS hostesses?

Since I wasn't able to show pics of some of my maids before, here are a few of them in all their beauty:

Lakina AKA the Most "Bout IT" Bridesmaid EVA!

Leah the Diva (also pretty darn BOUT IT):

Sidenote: Do you know how many people asked me if she was/is a model??? And I had the privilege of having her grace our wedding photos!!! How lucky are we?!?!?!


This is my first cousin who was always like a sister...

Shannon the GigglePot

This is actually Mr. CB's cousin. She instantly embraced me like we had grown up together...

Chanelle, Queen of the Side-Eye

And last, but certainly not least - my MOH, Shonetta AKA Christian's Mommy

And just for fun, here are some randoms:

Negotiating use of the Crackberry

Our Wedding Day: My Handsome Groom

Since these posts are feeling a little girl heavy, I'll share some of my fave shots of my handsome groom (and his guys). Let's face it - there would be no wedding day without him!

I'll double back and post the bride's ensemble and all the maids in one posting.


This is one of my absolute faves (can you tell I have ALOT of faves)!

His Best Man, Chevis

Aren't they all handsome??? And let's not even talk about swag?!?!!?

LOVING this shot:

Our Wedding Day: Details

One thing I can say about Mango Pixels Photography, Joyce has an uncanny knack of paying special attention to detail! Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Wine for our Unity Wine Ceremony

Our corsages and bouts were delivered from the florist like this:

When I saw "groom" attached to Mr. CB's bout - it all became real for me!

This was a very special gift from my brother's wife or *GULP* sister-in-law. This hanky was given to her on her wedding day.

The hanky (something old) and sapphire earring (something blue) were given to her by my Mom. She added the shiny 2009 penny for my something new. My Mother has since gone on to be with God, but how SWEET was my sister (in-law) to pass on such a treasured heirloom?!?!?! I know she's technically my sister-in-law, but it's really hard to call her that. She's more of a sister-from-another-mother.

And here she is (making sure everything is everything):

(Now you see why I can't call her my SIL?)

And here I am all made-up with no where to go (and still finishing one last DIY)...

Ciao Bella,
