Actually it's now two mornings after our wedding, but these photos are from yesterday so...
Everything turned out wonderful, perfect, better than I could have hoped. It seemed like everyone enjoyed themselves, and Chris and I had an amazing time with all our friends and loved ones. I loved the flowers. They are what I remember the most -- walking down the aisle with my dad and looking at the flowers, the colors of the dresses, the flags and all the people. I loved that part. I thought it was so much more beautiful than I could have imagined. Thank you so soo sooo much to everyone who was there, who helped, who decorated, and who enjoyed the day with us.
After the wedding we were led down a little pathway to the 'John Wayne Honeymoon Suite.' There were candles lit on the mantle of the fireplace, in the wall sconces, and on the table where a pot of warm food waited for us. A little flame was keeping it warm, though it was clear that it had not been there long, and there were fancy settings, champagne, and a comfy couch to finally sit down and relax on. What a great end to the evening.
Sadly, I didn't have my camera with me so I don't have any photos of my own to share from the wedding. I just have a couple from yesterday that I liked.
The first is of my beautiful dress, the next, day, hanging in the car like just another dress.
I want to point out, just in case anyone didn't already know, that my mom hemmed the dress for me. She checked out books to learn to do it exactly right, did the whole thing twice to make sure it wasn't too long, and eventually got it perfect. Thanks mom!!
These are just a little glimpse of what the flowers looked like. A bridesmaid bouquet and on of the large arrangements. I arranged these myself, which was a kind of stress relieving thing for me to do the day of the wedding, believe it or not. My bouquet, which I don't have a photo of right now, was my favorite. It was made of succulents, orchids, roses, snapdragons, and a little bit of purple filler. So lovely.
The last one is from yesterday evening. I always see photos of the rings sitting on a flower, and know my photographer didn't do this, so I thought I'd try it. Here is what I came up with.
Hopefully I will have more photos from the wedding soon. Chris surprised me during the wedding dinner with a trip for next weekend to our friend Juliana's mother gorgeous little vacation house in Bisbee. I'm really looking forward to that little get away and can't wait to share those photos too.
