Welcome back! This is part two of what I am now referring to as the Cavarretta Wedding Blogstravaganza! I haven't quite decided if I am going to make this a three or four parter yet. Stay tuned to find out!
For now I will formally (<--- see what I did there?) introduce you to Mr. Connor Cavarretta, brand spankin' new member of the Few, the Proud, the United States Marines. This wonderful young man has traveled leaps and bounds to get to where he is today. He is a Private in the U.S. Marine Corps and now a loving husband! I am proud to say I've seen this guy's awesome transformation and feel blessed to be able to share just a small part of his journey with you here today. Contained within you will meet Connor - our wonderful groom (he's the one in uniform!), his brother Colby - the best man who also happens to be a very talented musician and devoted sibling, Ryan and Brandon - groomsmen and adoring brothers of the bride, John - friend, USMC veteran and military mentor to the groom, & Kenny - a super talented musician, worship leader and friend. Thank you all for letting me document this special day with you!!!
This post will show you some of the wonderful detail that goes into preparing a Marine's dress blues for wear and how wonderful these guys look once they step out in their uniforms. I may be a bit biased, being that my husband John is the slightly more distinguished Marine in these pictures, but I think the Marines have the sharpest dress uniform in the United States Military. :) I hope you enjoy this glimpse of our groom getting fancy and I will catch you on the flip side with part three... The Wedding!!! <3
As Connor awaited the call to make his way downstairs to begin the much anticipated wedding, I headed down first to try and catch a glimpse of the beautiful bride-to-be, pre-ceremony. As I entered the beautiful garden at the Pierpont Inn where everything was about to start, I noticed this awesome fountain just to the left of where they would be having the service. I saw not only one hummingbird on the fountain, but two. What luck! Blessings were in abundance on this cool June afternoon. Next stop... the wedding! <3
