- Wedding: October 2011
My photog gives pics back between 4-6 weeks. It’s been 4 weeks. I haven’t bugged him at all. All I have seen from the wedding are a few iphone pics.
Honestly, the day was so, so, so quick… (The whole thing was quick–I planned my wedding in six insane weeks with no help, from Alaska, while working full time.) I barely got to experience it.
The honeymoon night was totally thwarted, by the way. The resort lady had suggested we use our honeymoon suite as a staging area for just before the ceremony, because of its location. Needless to say, every cup towel and pen and clean bit of space was used up. I knew this, and instructed the resort host to do an evening turn down–clean up a little bit with the garbage, give us some new glasses and coffee cups, and for godsake some towels!
Since the place is a resort winery, you’d think maybe they’d do a little turn-down and send a congratulatory bottle of wine…which would not have been necessary at all, but it would have been classy and gone a long way in my recommendations of the place for posterity–but when we arrived that night, it was in complete shambles. No towels, all cups dirty, things on the floor. Husband called the front desk and asked them to send some towels…they said that they couldn’t because the manager had locked them up in his office or something before leaving–but that they would “try.” 45 minutes later, still in my full ballroom gown, I called the front desk and gently reexplained the situation to the new staffer and said, “It’s my honeymoon night, and I have been sitting in my dress all this time, totally killing the mood…please just don’t worry about it and do NOT send anyone after all.” They agreed.
20 minutes later, when … well, it wasn’t a good time … we hear a knock on the door–some guy with two bath towels. “Thanks…”
In short…I look at my photos as a window to relive the moments I missed. Call me crazy.
I saw someone had some pictures. Has anyone else recently got theirs back to show? I will live vicariously. 😉
