- Wedding: May 2012
I was married May 20th and we had a small wedding. Our photographer was a family friend so I was given the digital prints so I could do with them as I pleased. So over the past 6 weeks I have been going through all of them only to realize a few days ago that we never took a photo of me, my husband, his mom, sister, sister’s husband, and my husband’s brother. So no family photo with me in it of his immediate family. We do have plenty of him with his family, and one large group picture of us with his immediate family with the cousins they are closest to, but no picture of me and his immediate family. And why? Because I only now remember that while we were taking pictures my husband decided that it wasn’t necessary because we got the big family picture and although at the time I agreed to it, I remember feeling sad about it but I thought to myself, “well, that’s what he wants”. But now I am beyond super upset that I didn’t stand my ground and go with my gut knowing that that particular picture mattered to me. I know I can’t change what happened, but it makes me so sick to my stomach any time of think of or look at our pictures. I don’t even want to make a photo album anymore because one of the most important pictures isn’t going to be there. I am so beside myself I don’t even know what to do. How do I deal with this? Because at this point I feel like my memories of our wedding are going to be marred by the fact that we never got this family picture. It is seriously one of the stupidest things I have ever done. Who doesn’t get a family picture?!! Grrr…..
