Corey and his groomsmen lined up in their spots.

After the rehearsal, we all headed to my favorite restaurant in the whole world, the good ol' Spaghetti Factory in downtown Sacramento. It was so nice to sit down and have a meal with all our friends and family that have been a part of our journey since day 1. We also gave the wedding party their gifts on this night. The girls got personalized w/ bling tote bags and the boys got engraved flasks.
Corey and I at dinner. He wouldn't take his hat off because he didn't want me to see his new hair cut before the wedding.
My Bridesmaid/BFF Kari. Love this girl.
Following dinner, Corey and the boys headed to their penthouse at the top of the Citizen Hotel. The view from up there is amazing! The girls and I, a long with Corey's family and many of our friends all stopped by to have a final toast before the big day.

Our very last picture as an engaged couple.
After crashing the guys' party, the girls and I went back to my suite for girl talk, a hot bath and bedtime. My final sleep as a single woman was spent in a bed with all my sisters. And I heard later that Corey's final night as a single guy was spent in bed with a couple of dudes. Hilarious.
It was hard to fall asleep knowing that when we wake up in the morning, it would be THE BIG DAY. It was hard to believe that after all the planning and waiting, it was finally here.
