Our Wedding: The Bridal Party

The following pictures were taken before our wedding ceremony at The University of San Diego on July twenty third, 2011. All of the photographs were taken by Carson Day.
Bridesmaids [l to r] Lindsey (Scott's youngest sister), Maddie (my youngest sister), Me, Danielle (my middle sister), Kristen (Scott's middle sister). So Scott and I are both the oldest siblings in our families and we both have two younger sisters (in case you didn't get that). I was going for a wild flower look for the bouquet since I love all things wild. What do you think? 
"here we go"
Groomsmen [l to r] Mike, Jason, Scott, Mark, Dave. They are all Scott's best friends.
My best friends who read and presented the gifts in the wedding. [l to r] Nicole, Stephanie, Me, Nell, Kate, Basia
 The subsequent photos were taken down by the beach near the reception site at my parent's house, which happens to be in our neighborhood as well. 
It felt so full circle to be celebrating the wedding ceremony at The University of San Diego, my alma mater, where we spent so much time getting to know each other when we were newly in love college kids and then to be back near our new home in the neighborhood where we have spent so much time getting to know ourselves as a couple in our early adult life. 
This is the beach where we surf daily. I prayed for no surf, for the first time ever, so we wouldn't be staring at perfect waves when we were all dressed for a wedding party. My prayers were answered! 
It was so hot and bright this July day, which I wouldn't complain about since it is our favorite weather and we could have gotten the grey that plagued the rest of the So-Cal summer, but when this part was over, I don't think anyone was sad. We were actually all "bring on the cold drinks!"
And the last shot we could stand before we melted was this trippy looking shot. Sometimes I can't decide if I like it. Kinda reminds me of a promo shot for a tv show or something, but I'm glad we have it. 
Do you have any wedding pictures stories? I'd love to hear them.
