Hello, my loves! Today, I skipped back from our mailbox, a ribbon-wrapped package in my hands. Our collection of wedding photographs, taken by the wonderful Michelle Boyd, have arrived!
While picking my dress was the most exciting thing about planning our wedding, booking Michelle was a close second. Not only is she the wife of a dear childhood friend, but she's one of the most sought after photographers in Austin. After you've seen her photos, it's no question as to why. This lady is amazingly talented. I can't stop swooning over these shots!
Especially the ones of the dress. Can I just wear it every day? Pretty please?
Personally, I love ogling other people's wedding photos, so I thought some of you might have fun looking through ours. It was a simple, cheery affair that turned out just the way we wanted: filled with joy and cake. Here's a sampling of our collection, from cake to shoes to the first look.
Okay, kittens. Check out the shoes! All I wanted in the world were soft gold shoes with closed toes, so that I could add ivory bow shoe clips. Of course, I couldn't find any...so I designed my own with Shoes of Prey. Best service ever.
Buttons and bow! My platonic dress.
Isn't Sam's jacket gorgeous? We found this tartan velvet blazer in May and knew it was the one for him. He looked dashing, though I rather think he always does.
My lovely best friends and family! Can you guess which one is my sister? Hint: my doppleganger over there on the right.
The bridesmaids dress aren't actually for bridesmaids, but from the vintage reproduction shop, Dig for Victory. They were each custom fitting, lined, and utterly gorgeous. So much cooler than the usual threadbare, polyester shenanigans of bridesmaid dresses.
Our getaway vehicle? The 1950 Ford F-1 that's been lovingly restored by my dad and brother. My dad is so excited to have professional photographs of it!
So there we go! Our wedding. It was the most wonderful of days, not because of cake or champagne or even that swoonerific dress, but because of the man who shared it with me. Not to get all mushy on y'all, but Sam is the bee's knees. I have no idea how I got this lucky, but am so grateful for him. Marriage gets more fun each day, with him by my side.
