Photography by the amazing Palos Studio
Arriving and admiring the venueTammy, our go to person from Padua for the day, had already hung my dress and taken it out of it's garment bag by the time I made it to the bridal room. She was such a sweet heart and took amazing care of us throughout the whole day! Since she had already handled my dress I began organizing my things and giving Erin my jewelry and shoes to start photographing.
About fifteen minutes after our arrival the boys arrived! I was pretty much locked up in the bridal room until told otherwise. As I said in my post about wedding superstitions, Mr. Castle wanted his first time seeing me to be while I was walking down the aisle. So while he was out and about I was not allowed to leave the room. :(
While I was locked up, Mr. Castle and his groomsmen ran a sound check for the ceremony music.

When she finally did arrive she was very frazzled with nerves and excitement. She caught me off guard by coming in for a huge hug.
Before the girls got into their dresses we took some pictures in our robes!
