Wedding Day (pre-wedding events) 4.30.2011

Alright, so we didn't sleep very well the night before because we were so anxious and nervous!! We woke up (not feeling rejuevated) but nervous as hell!! Hank and I went to a little rock and roll breakfast joint for strong coffees and omelettes! We headed back to the Point Pleasant Manor to go our own ways and get ready for the big day!!!!

My mom and I went to get our hair done at a cool little joint called Salon Kokopelli. It was a cute little house rennovated into a hair salon. We both scheduled our appointments with Jen and had a blast! She was funny and we both could relax and have fun in her presence, thanks JEN!!

So, after we got our hair done and I got us lost...we finally arrived at the Point Pleasant Manor! Mom, grandma, and Michelle came to the room to help me with anything I needed to do! After I finished with my makeup, the photographer came and we began our pre-wedding portraits!

Friday (Rehearsal Dinner at Shrimp Box) 4.29.2011

Wow, where to begin. Henry's parents treated anyone who wanted to come to Friday night's rehearsal dinner at the Shrimp Box. Everyone started arriving Friday afternoon at the hotel, the Point Pleasant Manor. OMG, the food was absolutely outstanding!!! We had a choice between a seafood trio (shrimp, scallops and fish filet with veggies and side), steak or fried/broiled shrimp platter. Again, the food was outstanding and it was so generous of Denise and Bruce to treat everyone...we truly appreciate their gracious gifts.

After the dinner, Denise and Bruce rented the 2 biggest rooms at the hotel to host an afterparty for Friday and Saturday. Hank and I were soooo tired, we stayed up a little on Friday, but crashed hard Saturday night. It was so great seeing everyone, especially together and enjoying each other's company! We had such a wonderful evening Friday and couldn't wait for Saturday!! We found it hard to sleep Friday night because of our nerves and we were so anxious!
