WOW! Your pictures are amazing and you looked FABULOUS~~!!! Kudos to you for being able to do what you wanted as economically as possible. I totally had the same regret re: greeting guests at our wedding back in march-- we had to stop midway because of the toasts and we didn't get pictures with all the tables... that was the biggest regret... but what can you do.... :\ anyway, i LOVE LOVE LOVE your pictures----so dreamy and romantic...

Penny Lane said...

oh my god, so fantastic! you guys are the epitome of fun, cute, stylish...yeah I could go on. These shots are outrageously awesome. And it's so crazy (in a good way) to finally "meet" you! not at all what I expected, but totally amazed with how everything seems to have come together. You guys are absolutely adorable (I LOVE the groom's tie btw...and, well, pretty much everything else).

You look amazing! The pictures came out so beautiful and it looks like it was a fab party. My wedding is next Saturday and I'm surprisingly calm. . .hopefully I can stay sane the day of.

You were one beautiful bride! Holy moly!
I've been reading your blog since way before you were engaged. I have to be honest, I'm a little sad it's over now. Please keep blogging! You crack me up!

Also de-lurking to say that you and your pictures are STUNNING. And I love that you went with a bold color nail :) It's inspired me to do the same. Thanks for "exposing" yourself, even if it means pissing off a few people along the way. I hope you'll share more once all of your pics come in. Oh, and I love your dress.

Tris said...

So beautiful! Gah.

(Sidenote: I love that you went with red nail polish. How did the doing-your-own makeup thing work out? It looks STUNNING, but was it hard? Stressful? Did you have to mess with it after every song?)

It all looks so amazing!
