Honilla Wedding Recap

I have kept you all waiting long enough, it's time for the Honilla wedding recap!  The professional pics have not yet surfaced, so for now you will have to settle for a compilation of iPhone pics and point & shoot pics that I have gathered from folks who attended.

We had to be ready for pics by 11:30am, so an early start was required.  My MOH and BFF arrived at 8am to get started on hair for me and two other girls, and make up for me.  I had started to come down with a cold the day before and between sneezing and coughing, my eyes were watering like crazy, which was quite annoying when it came to my eye makeup.

After a few hours of primping, it was time to head downstairs and take some bridal party pictures.  The weather was so nasty, windy and rainy, so we decided to take most of the pics indoors.  Luckily the hotel we were at had some gorgeous places to do so.

The groom is the co-owner and COO for Mejor Modern Luxury Tequila, so we took a bottle with us into the hotel bar/restaurant and took some pictures of the girls taking shots at the bar. I can't wait to see how those turned out! After we were done with the bridal party pics, we headed out to get in the limo to go to the church. Just as we were heading outside, it stopped raining!! Talk about luck!

Everything that day was running right on schedule. We got to the church with just enough time to get our stuff stashed downstairs, touch up our make up and get lined up for the ceremony.

It was a full catholic mass,so there was a lot of standing, sitting, walking, and kneeling during the hour-long ceremony.

There was a point in the middle of the ceremony when the priest was praying for the couple and their marriage when the sun came out and lit up the entire church through the stained glass windows. It was as if God was shining down his blessing on them. So awesome.

After the ceremony, we took some pictures of the entire bridal party in the church and outside of the cathedral before hopping on the party bus to head to the reception.

The party bus was nothing short of awesome. Lots of my favorite people, celebrating awesomeness with lots of tequila.

We were kept hidden in the lounge while we waited to be announced into the reception. There was a bar and a pool table so we got some drinks and took the opportunity to get some pics with each other.

The reception was nothing short of awesome with delicious food, an amazing DJ, and an open bar stocked to the brim with Mejor among others.

After the reception we jumped back on the party bus, which was nothing short of a shit show. As if we weren't trashed enough, there were more bottles of Mejor floating around. The bus driver got lost and what should have been a 30 minute ride, turned into a 2 hour ride back to our hotel.

We were supposed to all go out afterward, but the bus ride back was a major buzz kill, so we went back to our room, ordered a pizza and passed out. It was definitely one of the top 5 weddings I have been blessed to attend, and to be a part of it was even more special.

Congratulations Angel and Melissa!!!
