In my last post I left off with us leaving the venue in my brother's car. He drove us the 5 miles back to the Hotel and dropped off me, Kristian, my mom and her friend who were also staying at our hotel. As we were walking into the hotel we noticed another couple who had just gotten married that night checking in...the chick in the wedding dress was a dead giveaway. We high fived and congratulated the other couple before heading inside. As we made our way to the elevators we saw the tail end of another wedding finishing up in their ballroom. I guess May 22nd was a popular wedding date.
I had stayed in our hotel room the night before with my bridesmaid Colleen. Kristian had stayed at our condo Friday night and gotten dressed with his groomsmen at another hotel down the street so this was his first time seeing the room. Kristian being the romantic that he is did carry me across the threshold which was a very sweet moment.
Our room was very nice and modern and the bed was hands down the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. It was also one of the few hotel beds where I wasn't afraid to lay on the comforter!
Below is a picture of what the King bed hotel rooms look like...this isn't our room I swiped the picture from Trip Advisor.
The hotel very graciously left us a bottle of champagne (free of charge) since they knew we were staying there for our wedding. They actually left it in the room Friday night and Colleen and I debated drinking it but decided to save it for the wedding night. By the time we got back on the wedding night we weren't much in the mood for drinking so we decided to save the bottle to drink on our one year anniversary.
Once we got back to the room we laid on the bed and just talked and laughed and went over the events of the day. Kristian also helped me remove the bazillion bobby pins in my hair. We just couldn't get over the fact that we were finally, really married. I wanted to just hang out in my dress for a while and savor the last few minutes of being a bride. I'm not gonna lie taking the dress off was a bit sad for me as it signaled the end to such an amazing day.
I don't think I need, nor want to go into details of what happened next...you can use your imagination...or rather don't because that's creepy. I must admit even after some sexy time I was still really wired and couldn't sleep, so what else is a girl to do when she can't sleep on her wedding night??? Update her status on Facebook of course! Yes I'm one of THOSE girls. Oh well, we are living in a digital world and I'm a digital girl. To be honest, I couldn't WAIT to change my status to married and update my name.
Below are more pictures of our actual room which is where I got ready the day of the wedding. I was glad that the room was so pretty because it made a great backdrop for the getting ready pictures.
*LOOOOVE this picture*
*Having this huge mirror on the wall came in quite handy while getting ready*
Where did/will you spend your wedding night?
