We had a great time in FL!!
We drove down on Friday in our minivan (loooooved it) and checked into our hotel. We stayed at the Hotel Biba , a cute little old school motor inn that has been renovated and updated.
After check-in we headed over to the Colony Hotel to meet Jennifer and to attend the rehearsal dinner. Very nice hotel, really pretty and cozy. We had a great time meeting Matt and Jennifer's family and eating some tasty 'fancy' cookout food. :)
Saturday morning I dropped Ian off at the Colony so he could do some 'guy things' (getting a straight razor shave for one!) with Matt and the other groomsmen. After that I drove down Dixie Hwy for fun and then went to the spa!
That's right, I said spa. :) Ian sent me to Kaffee's Garden Spa for a couple of hours of relaxation.
The ceremony was outside, and nice and small and intimate. And so very Matt. :) It was officiated by a rabbi, which was a new experience for me. And Matt of course was his usual fun and jovial self during the ceremony, which I loved. :)
All dressed up and huge! :) Jill, Ian's mom, let me borrow a purse that used to be Monique's! Monique is Ian's dad's mom.
And from the side. :)
Here's how I did my hair....it was a LOT curlier early on in the night. :) I used a really pretty clip that Ian bought me in FL at a Greek festival. It has green stones on it, so that's why my jewelry has green beads too. :) I made the necklace to go with the earrings I'd previously made for my trip to Toronto.
Tying one on!
Double O Ian!
Just the two of us!
