Ok, so it is really hard to blog your own wedding. REALLY HARD. At least it is for me. Maybe that’s why this post took me two years to write. But in honor of my two year wedding anniversary (today!) I am finally going to share my wedding (in case you didn’t see it here on Style Me Pretty, or here on The Knot).  It is actually really fun to go back and pour through all of your wedding photos two years later – I think it should be a yearly tradition, although I promise not to blog it yearly 🙂

Jonathan and I were married on August 29, 2009, 14 years and 28 days after our first date, in Palos Verdes, California.  To start, here are the getting ready and pre-ceremony portrait photos (all by our wedding photographer Jennifer Roper):vintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper, garter by The Garter Girlvintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper, gown by Melissa Sweetvintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper; bridesmaid gowns by Lela Rosevintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper, florals by Greenwich Floral Designvintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper, gown by Melissa Sweetvintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper, bridesmaid dresses by Lela Rosevintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Ropervintage california chic wedding of Oh Lovely Day | Photo by Jennifer Roper

The morning of my wedding was so calm and relaxing.  I stayed by myself in our hotel the night before and got some much needed rest (thank you Ambien!)  I woke up and my mom and bridesmaids came and hung out and we ate breakfast and started getting ready together.  We had our hair and makeup done in my suite by the ladies of Flawless Faces.  My sweet husband sent me a card and wedding gift (a skeleton key necklace from Tiffany & Co).  I had a perfect pre-wedding morning!
