Post-Wedding

Brace yourselves. Here come the bride... pictures!

I have two amazing photographer-friends, and both were involved in the day.

Lindsay doesn't do weddings so I asked if we could have a family portrait session and I would show up in my wedding gown. She said yes! :)

Both photographers got some shots in black and white. This one from before the ceremony shows my husband(!) and his dad talking with his grandpa.

The bridesmaids all wore different dresses in the same shade of the same fabric.

We also had lots of friends and relatives who brought their cameras and shared their photos with us.

I chose not to get my hair done professionally but to have a makeup artist "do my face" instead. False eyelashes definitely made me feel pretty!

I spent the day before the wedding at the spa, which helped me to feel really relaxed! You can see my red sparkly manicure here, and my pedicure is my "something blue."


The cake cutting song was "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Poison. We both devoured it before sitting down. It was soooo good!


The cake topper is from Emily Steffen's shop on Etsy


I requested long tables rather than rounds for the reception, which was held outdoors under a big tent. We also had an amazing wedding coordinator who was responsible for making it all look so beautiful!!!

The Arboretum has a Japanese garden, and one of the special surprises of the night was finding this message in the rocks!


There was dancing!



And lots of little princesses! 

My daughter had changed out of her flower girl dress by the time we got to the reception. Except for the sisters on the right, none of the girls knew each other before last Saturday (although they all knew my daughter). It was so fun to see them playing so well together! And, it was the same with my girlfriends, too. Some of whom had never met but were new friends by the end of the night!

Truly the BEST day ever! Thanks so much to all of our family and friends who made it so special. :)
