It’s been about two months, and I think I’m finally ready to recap. I’m just picking a few of my favorite pictures (some pro, some guest) to share the feel of the day…my main goal was a fun event for all.
A quick toast between sisters before I put my dress on
Mom helping me get ready
One last check before the “first look”
Down I go to see my soon-to-be husband
My husband getting ready with some groomsmen
The first look under the amazing tree (we actually saw each other sans-photo first for a private moment, then called them in)
And a few portraits:

Thanks guys! One of the reasons I posted these is because I’m considering doing a day after photo shoot–6 months later! I love the pictures I have but I didn’t end up with any “bridal portraits” of just me because I didn’t give my photographer a ton of time to work with. I’m basically missing that one of a full shot of me in the dress (the one in the mirror is close, though you can’t see the front of the dress), and a close-up of my face. My husband is being very supportive of the reshoot, but I know he thinks I’m crazy. Do you all think it’s silly to do more photos so long after the wedding? I’d do them right now but my dress is being cleaned and by the time I get it back, the weather will have turned…

I don’t think it’s silly! You should totally do it! Beautiful, btw!

I have two more that I love and forgot to post. Thanks for indulging!
My brother was one of my attendants (wore navy to match the girls) and my husband’s sister was one of his (wore gray to match the guys). I really liked the way this turned out! It seemed weird to swap them, so we went against tradition and did what we wanted.
And my fave photo of myself from the day. I really like that you can see the necklace. My grandmother wore it to her wedding in the early 1930s. She passed this April at the age of 100, so it was nice to have a reminder of her even though she couldn’t be there. It was my something borrowed, courtesy of my cousin.
