our wedding: us

When you have almost two thousand pictures to look through, it’s hard to pick your favorites. And even after looking through all those pictures, I still feel like the day was such a whirl wind and that that woman in the white dress isn’t even me. Is that crazy? Yes.

Below are some of my favorite photos of just me and Ryan. After the first look, we were fortunate enough to have the rain clear up to take pictures outside.  (I guess I was too stubborn to acknowledge the whole “April showers bring May flowers” bit.) Luckily with the grey skies and a coolness in the air, it made for even better photos.

our wedding: the first look

It’s hard to believe that Ryan and I have almost been married for two months. But I suppose after being together for so long two months just kind of feels that way. I’ve looked through our photographers photos of our wedding more time then I can count, laughing and tearing up at the same photos. This week I’ll be posting photos of my favorite moments from our wedding day.

Since Ryan and I hosted the ceremony and reception at the same location, and since it was pouring the morning of the wedding, we did “first look” photos in the lobby of the hotel where we spent the night. The grand staircase is so beautiful and walking down all those stairs (in 4 inch heels!) built up the anticipation even more. I think the first thing I said to him was, “wow, you’re butt looks so cute in that tux”. Classic me. And it was true. I own that tush now.
