Photos!

Guess what arrived in the mail yesterday? A DVD with our photos! Naturally I ran right upstairs to put 'em on my computer, and then surfed the web right to Blogger to show off ... er, I mean share ;-)

Let me say before I continue how highly I recommend our photographer, David Wegwart of Photocraftz. The shots here barely scratch the surface of his talent, and he was absolutely wonderful to work with. We couldn't be more in love with our photos -- my mom said she cried all over again! So if you're here because you're a Denverite looking for a photographer, go to David's website and get in touch today!

I mentioned a while back that I didn't feel comfortable posting too many photos of our wedding. I've kept my wedding blogging fairly private from my family and friends, and I don't want to put our loved ones' images online without their permission. So the selection of photos below represents, in many ways, the shallowest parts of the wedding -- the "details," the things that made it pretty. You won't see our relatives singing along to "Shout!," my matron of honor holding hands with her husband and laughing with her whole body, the moment before the ceremony when I kissed my mom on the cheek and she smiled, quietly, taking in the knowledge that it was the last-ever kiss she'd get from a single daughter. But those were the moments that Econo Boy and I remember, the ones that make me tear up, the ones that made having this darned wedding worth it in the first place.

But I did promise at least a look. So, without further ado, some pictures of our wedding! All images are by David Wegwart, and are not to be reproduced or posted elsewhere without his permission. (David, if posting these here doesn't fall under "personal use," let me know and I will take them down ASAP!)

My bouquet:


Our table settings:


Our cake, after we cut it. (We kind of did a hack job on the cutting, so don't blame the bakery for the little gaps in frosting on the second tier, that was all us! And oh my lord, was this cake yummy.)




I will probably take a break from blogging (but not from reading or commenting on your blogs!) over the next few weeks as I decide what to do with this blog. I may start a new blog, or simply surrender this one to the wide-open spaces of the internet as a relic of our wedding planning, or keep on with this site and write about life as a wife in exile, bouncing back and forth between my husband in Boston and my grad program elsewhere. Thank you all so very much for your support, advice, and ideas on your own blogs -- it's meant a lot to me!

Gorgeous! Thank you for sharing some pictures with us! And I second Accordions, just let us know where you're headed and we'll follow you on over.

LPC of Privilege said...

Beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. I too will follow you elsewhere. You guys should form an umbrella group, grad student/professor bloggers....And you seem to be a red head. So is my daughter. I'm fond of red heads.

One Barefoot Bride said...

Wow... gorgeous details - love the way the bouquet turned out! - and you look so beautiful & blissful, with awesome arms :) Lovely wedding. I'd love to hear more on it or other topics...

Or maybe like LPC suggested, we need a post-wedding grad student/ prof blogger group...

Mandy said...

Lovely. I too am wondering what to do with the blog now that the wedding is over. Hopefully you'll inspire me.

Abbie said...

Love the details! I think part of my recap problem is that our photographers totally missed most of the "details", and I'm just so bummed about it. Your wedding was beautiful!

Laura said...

You looked beautiful and the pictures are great! Good luck with everything!

Bride in Exile said...

Thank you for the kind words, everyone!

LPC and OBB, I'm afraid the red hair and the Linda-Hamilton-in-Terminator-2 arms are both illusions :-) I'm a brunette (although I like to think I have copper highlights, when the sun shines just right) and my arms are, alas, not quite as ripped as they look in this photo! (At the risk of looking vain, I may have to post another picture. Inspired by accordionsandlace, I feel like the Internet needs more photos of brides with short hair.)

Ruthie said...

Beautiful! I look forward to seeing what you decide to do with your blog.
