So, back before we had all of our professional pictures, I did a tiny recap.
(You can see those: here)
But I have always wanted to do a little bit fuller recap and, even though I know it’s a few months late… okay, the wedding was in September, but whatever, I hope you enjoy it!
All the photos are credited to Michael Carr Photography in Chicago.
Thank you so much for helping me plan and re-live the best day EVER!
**I know these aren’t crazy fancy collages, but I hope the picture overload is less intense this way!

Wow thanks for sharing these photos! As a Sept bride, I’m totally appreciating this! 🙂 I’ve also been thinking about doing the Fingerprint guestbook! How did that turn out for you?

Thank you so much, everyone!!
@HnyBee: He is such an amazing photographer! Easy to be around and prefect images… hiring him was one of the best decisions!!
@pengoala: September can be unpredicatble (what month isn’t?) but I think it’s just a prefect month for a wedding. The only advice I have is BUG SPRAY yourself and your girls… I had 4 LARGE bites that were photoshopped out of these shots, but they did show up in candids and (a little) on our wedding video.
The fingerprint tree worked out awesome, though quite a few people didn’t sign it… this probably happens no matter what kind of guestbook you have. I set out a mini garbage can and a bowl of wet wipes (for fingertips), as well. **I still have an unopened box of wipes – if you are interested, you can have them for free – just message me.
We did have a few people like… use the edge to practice? I was upset about this on the way home, but I GENTLY used a magic eraser and it all came off with absolutely no trouble.
I also made a sign and framed it that said “Please “leaf” your names” then, under that, said “Please just names and fingerprints only (no messages), as we have future plans for this tree” — Just because I really didn’t want it to be too wedding related (it hangs in our bedroom)
I bought the frame for $5 in the scratch&dent section of Ikea… had to trim the tree to fit perfectly, but that was all very easy!
@Usuki: Thanks! The cake topper was my first wedding purchase and I based our wedding (slightly) off of them 🙂
@breezybri19: Thank you! Fun socks are definitely an online hunt, but they made a perfect photo opp!
