- Wedding: September 2012
Because there aren’t enough “nice” ones of her and there wasn’t a picture of me and her alone together. She said that she just looks like another guest at the wedding and I half laughed and said yeah, because there was no way that the lady with her hair done even better than the bride’s who was wearing a full length gown was going to be mistaken for someone other than the bride or groom’s mom lol. And because even though there’s pictures of her and MIL lighting the unity candle, she could still be mistaken for any old guest lmao.
So I looked through all the pictures last night so I could find some to send her. There were quite a few of when she gave a speech and one of them is me sitting right in front of her as she’s doing the speech. I scrolled through the ceremony pictures and saw that H’s mom walked down the aisle (our godparents walked down the aisle too before the bridesmaids and the best man) and I realized that either my mom didn’t walk or the photographer went on some sort of bathroom break and missed her lol.
I’m pretty sure she just didn’t walk though. My mom was also there for the shots the photog took of me getting ready and it’s not my fault she stayed out of the way. I know she and my dad really hate each other so that’s probably why my mom didn’t go to where we all were right before the ceremony but where the heck was she? Again, not my fault.
There are also shots of H and I with her but you can tell she’s looking at someone else taking a picture. H and I kept telling people to please let the photographer do his thing, we were paying him and he was professional, after all. So again, not my fault she wasn’t paying attention. So many people on my side of the family completely ignored the photographer and paid more attention to other guests taking pictures. If I had known that would happen I might have banned cameras, it was that distracting and people were literally stepping in front of him while he was trying to shoot.
I did get a magnet made of the picture of me, her and H though so she can put it on her fridge. If she doesn’t like it, not my problem.
As much as a pain in the neck MIL was during the wedding, she inserted herself into a lot of pictures and that’s why she was able to get quit a few with H. Heck, I even found a picture of her standing next to our best man during the ceremony (which I didn’t even notice at the time) so she was really working in those photo ops lol.
I just refuse to feel guilty about it. Could it have been more organized? Sure. But this was the week we had a super storm and almost nobody had electricity the whole week, my cousin who volunteered to be our day of coordinator had her flight cancelled. So excuse me if not everything was perfect.
My aunt/godmother also complained a little about the wedding pictures and said that there weren’t nice pictures of her. She was pouting in 90% of them! How is that the photog’s fault?
My mom also complained because right after the wedding I shared pictures that her sister put on Facebook and she asked how come I had pictures of my dad and not her at the wedding? I told her that I got them from her sister so ask her, not me.
>.< It’s also annoying because I know she had a good time, but she’s hung up on the pictures.
