|That hair took HOURS|
|Kneel in a wedding dress? Yeah, super easy.|
|So glad to be done with the "hard" part!|
|I didn't even trip!|
|A limo! It's like prom, but we don't have to share!|
|Our own golfcart!|
|It's a good thing he's driving that thing|
|Getting married in mid-July is HOT|
|Screw these pictures, let's go back inside|
|So glad I went with the 4 inch heels|
|Best wedding planning decision I made was this cake|
|Guess which one is Brian?|
|Wait, why do we have to cut this cake? Isn't there waitstaff for this?|
|What I wouldn't give for another piece of that right now|
|I don't even know|
|Breaking my bustle was kind of a buzz kill on the dancing|
For all of you ladies out there who aren't married yet, this is my biggest piece of advice: be cheap about many things, but not the photography. I found a very cheap guy and thought it wouldn't really matter because how hard can it be to take pictures? (Very hard apparently)
At one point during the ceremony, he must have gotten bored and he went off and started taking self portraits. How do I know this? Because he didn't bother to delete them when he gave me the disc of the wedding pictures. I guess I know why we only have a few pictures of the ceremony. :) Also, all of the church pictures are orange-y. Photography savvy people have told me that's a lens issue (or a filter issue, I don't really listen), and it's a pretty basic skill to mess up.
|Orange you glad to see me?|
I'm not super happy with any of our wedding photos taken by our photographer. I actually preferred the ones that Brian took with his fancy camera, and he was just there as a guest. Maybe one day while I still fit into my dress I'll do one of those "trash the dress" photo shoots with my husband. It seems silly at this point, but it's not completely out of the question.

Also, our engagement pictures were strange too, but the time was so cramped (I planned the whole shebang in about 6 months) that I didn't have time to find another photographer. In my understanding, engagement pictures are of the couple, but he kept insisting on taking pictures of just me. So I have a bunch of random pictures like this:
What part of your wedding (past or imaginary future) did you not scrimp on? I went all out for the cake and that was a fantastic decision. It was such a good cake that there weren't any leftovers, which means almost everyone had to have eaten more than one piece.
