Married.....with pictures!!
Posted: Sep 21, 2009 9:56 PM

Hi ladies! Well, I just got our wedding pictures back today, and they are AMAZING!! I am so happy with them. I can never get the photos to copy-paste in the order I want, so I'm going to split them over a couple of posts. I'm going to come back as soon as I have time and post the story of our day. Suffice it to say that everything was beyond incredible - totally beyond my wildest dream. We had a few hiccups (including about 20 wedding crashers!! It was crazy!!), but none of them mattered. It couldn't have been more awesome!

So here they are! Sorry they are a bit grainy - I had to do some majorly questionable printing to pdf, cropping, and transforming to jpegs to get them off the photographer's website (we don't get the rights until we have finished making our album in a couple of months.

Me and my BMs eating lunch after getting back from the salon (one of my BMs made me the Bride sweatshirt!):


DH's brother and dad getting ready:


My necklace - a loaner from the jewelry store. I wish I got to keep it, I LOVED it!!


My dress (Watters Tuscany):


BMs lacing me into my dress:


A quick toast in the hotel room with BMs and mom before heading downstairs (don't worry, we gave the flower girl juice, not champagne!):

Me and DH:


DH and I right after we saw each other for the first time:


Me and all of my BMs:


My purple shoes (LOVE!):


Our rings, on a map of Chicago


DH and all of his GMs (his brothers, my brother, and his best friend):


This is one of my favorite pictures!! For some reason no one else seems to like it.... oh well


A close of up my bouquet:


Me and DH with our bridal party:


Our ring bearer, trying to show off his spider man socks, but you can't see them!


BMs, hanging out during picture time:


Our flower girl, looking adorable! We gave her a flower "wand" instead of a basket, and she spent the whole day magically turning everyone into super secret cheerleader princesses!

Our ceremony, with the candlelit aisle:


Being pronounced man and wife!!


Long shot of the ceremony:


Leaving the ceremony - TOTALLY forgot to take my flowers back from MOH:


Being announced at our reception (can you tell DH hates photos??)


Giving MOH a hug after her toast:


BMs dancing up a storm! Our band was incredible - I thought my mom was crazy for wanting a band instead of a DJ, but I've never heard anything like it.


First centerpiece:


Cosmo toast - we had cosmos instead of champagne for our toasts in honor of Ron's mom, who died of breast cancer about 3 months ago. She made the BEST cosmos, and we wanted to remember her in a way that was celebratory and about her, instead of creating some kind of a memorial that would have made people sad.


Dip at the end of our first dance (i told DH the dance lesson I subjected him to was TOTALLY worth it just for this shot)


Our cake - we had a cherry blossom cake to bring in a little Washington DC, which is where we live now (our wedding was in Chicago, where we grew up)


Me dancing with my dad to Somewhere Out There, which we used to sing all the time together when I was little.


Second centerpiece:


Third centerpiece (re-using the cylinders from our aisle treatment)

Those are all my favorites! If anyone isn't pictured out I can post the link the the whole pictage website :)

Your pictures are AMAZING!! Two of my favs are the dancing dipping one and the kissing under the umbrella one (which I don't understand why other people don't like it too lol). Great great pics, it sure looked like a perfect day :)

Congratulations and what beautiful photos! I have to admit, I was going to compliment the one of you two kissing with the parasol before I even read your comment. I'm not sure how other people could not like it, you two look so happy and in love.

Beautiful church, dress, flowers, and of course the shoes. You can tell from the pics that it was a really happy day. Congratulations!
