Wedding Highlights!!!!


The wedding was AMAZING and fun and even though the stress was high planning it, it was completely beautiful. Italy was FABULOUS, a wonderful honeymoon. Now that I'm back, I need to start BLOGGING again, I'll skip the rest of the shower and the bachelorette party for now and give you the juicy stuff. THE WEDDING!!! I don't have a ton of pictures, just some from a few family and friends, if anyone has more, I'D LOVE TO SEE THEM!!! Email me!
For everyone else, enjoy the highlights of what I have, mostly of Rob and I, not so much other peoples, but those will come at some point when I can organize them betterer.

In the meantime, ROB AND I GOT MARRIED!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Rob once again, looking pretty spiffy in a tux!

Me, the Bride. I wore a tiara and a veil and a white (well ivory and champagne anyway) dress and.....

SNEAKERS!!! With sequins and lace of course!!!!

I don't have anything from before the Tisch, but this is Rob being brought/danced in from his Tisch to see me, his Bride. And he cried when he saw me! We hadn't seen each other for a whole week before the wedding, he was overwhelmed with the moment, as was I.

And OF COURSE I cried too!!!! The not seeing each other was hard, but worth this moment. I was so totally overcome with emotions.
And of course, Stefanie, the good Maid of Honor, is there to tell me not to cry or I'll ruin my makeup!!!

Our first looks and moment together, we were both crying and happy and the feeling was just so amazingly overwhelming, I can't explain it. It was just one of those moments that you will never ever forget in your entire life.

Rob, Bedeking me, making sure I'm his bride and that my Dad didn't try to make him marry Stoofie.

Rob signing our Ketubah. It's such a pretty Ketubah, with trees through all the seasons in a circle, colorful and pretty and YAY for our Ketubah!

Now I sign the Ketubah. We had 4 witnesses, 2 male and 2 female, (Thank you Adam and Laurie and Mark and Sarah!) but I don't have pictures of them signing it. Nor of the Rabbi signing it. Oh well. I'm sure someone has them somewhere.

Our Chuppah. Isn't it BE-A-U-TI-FUL!?!?!?!?!

Rob processing down the aisle. All smiles of course!

Here comes the bride.... Only we didn't play that. We had a recording of an a cappella group singing Erev Shel Shoshanim. Very beautiful and VERY me. :)

Starting to circle Rob seven times. Stoofie helped me keep count. I got a bit dizzy, but luckily I didn't trip over my dress and land flat on my face.

The train of my dress following me, circling Rob's feet! (Great picture!!!)

Under the Chuppah.

Announcing for the first time ever... Mr. & Mrs. Robert Cole!!!! YAY!!!

Our first dance... Here we go...

L, is for the way you look at me.
O, is for the very one I see.

V, is very very extraordinary
(with a turn)

E, is even more than any one I could adore.
(with a dip and a kiss)

And Love is all that I can give to you.
Love is more than just a game for two.
Two in Love can make it,
Take my heart and please don't break it,

Love was made for me and you!!!

All of those dance lessons paid off!!!

The flowers were Gorgeous!!!

And so was the cake! We meant it to be only half the size because we served an individual dessert, but there was a mixup and it was bigger and we didn't serve it and now Rob and I have cake for 100. Anyone want a slice??? It's chocolate with strawberries and buttercream frosting.... and it's Kosher.... YUMMY!

Me feeding Rob cake. I don't have a good picture of him feeding me.

Mouth full of cake smiles!!

Cakey kiss.

The wedding is over :( but we're still SO HAPPY to be married!!!! :)

And we're still happy the next morning!
Now it's off to Italy!!!!!
See you after the Honeymoon!!!!

And that's that. Wedding highlights with the bit of pics I have. I'll post more when I get more, and I'll post Italy when I organize them.

I'm Mrs. Carie Cole now. HEE HEE!!!!! YAY!!!!!

To my "Other Hebrew Birthday Buddy"
You can guess if you really want to, but I'll give you a hint. The group isn't from anywhere in NY. And thank you :)
