Happy Wednesday! I’m going to drag out my wedding photos week by week for you guys. Yeah, I’m milking it but I’m allowed. Mwuahaha. Today, we’ll start with some of the getting ready photos. Oh and I should mention too that my photography, Mandy Fierens, was super amazing! She did our engagement photos too (here and here) and we just love her. Working with a photographer that you love makes things so much better of course.
As you can see, it’s mostly pretty photos of girly getting ready things. Of course including my amazing manicure, where you can also see that I’m wearing my grandmother’s wedding band, which was my “something old.” (My something new was I guess the dress? My something blue were my shoelaces which you will see in another post! And I forgot something borrowed, so I “borrowed” my sister’s perfume. Oops.) Oh and there is only one photo of the dudes “getting ready.” They had to go to the church a few hours before we did (because the shuttle had to have time to come back to the hotel to take the girls), so this is just one of the goofy poses from their photos. Isn’t it nice guys get to just goof off while us ladies have to beautify ourselves.
Speaking of, I’m so lucky to have a dream team that helped me get ready. My hairdresser of the past 8-ish years came to the hotel to do my hair and it turned out perfectly. And one of my good friends is an amazing makeup artist (she is one of the makeup artists from ModCloth.com) and she did amazing makeup for me and my bridesmaids. (Oh and side note – my photographer is actually a model for ModCloth.com too – everything is connected!) I’m so lucky to know so many talented people!
Check back for the next 7 million Wednesdays to see more wedding details!
