Day 1--Party in the City Where the Heat is On!

It's that time--time to recap our recent travels for our wedding. :) We were so incredibly blessed to have 51 of our nearest and dearest join us for the trip of a lifetime and be by our side for the biggest day of our lives to date. Before we get to that, though, we needed to get to Miami.


Day 1 started off bright and early for us. We jumped an early am flight out to the nearest hub, where we met up with about 1/3 of our guests. We met in a bar at the airport and got the party started. ;) Who needs to wait for noon--we thought that 9 am was clearly sufficient. Yes, those are screwdrivers in front of us (We'll have a double, please). ;)

We hopped our direct flight down to Miami and got in at about 3:00 (except for my brother and sister who got rerouted to Newark and wouldn't arrive until about 8:00 pm, sans luggage of course). First stop: the beach. One of our best men had never seen the ocean, so it was an incredibly cool experience to take him there and see the sense of awe in his eyes.



Next, we headed back to our hotel (The Courtyard by Marriott South Beach) where we sat by the rooftop pool and enjoyed a few cold bud lights.

At about 8:15, we headed down to lincoln road where we enjoyed a good dinner at the Soprano cafe with about 20 of our guests. Great food, good drinks, great conversation. :)




Then, it was off to a local sports bar to meet up with a few more of our guests. Joey wasn't able to join me for this as his dad, step mom, and brother were scheduled to arrive, but we had a great time none-the-less.
Then, it was off to slumberland for the soon-to-be newlyweds as we had a beach photo shoot at 6:45 am.

Day 2 coming soon. Reviews coming after the full recap. :)
