Wedding Photos: Getting Ready

Ohhh Wedding Wednesday!  How I've missed you!!  That built-in focus on a weekly basis is something that I could reeeeally use in these days of blog-ADD-dom.

Pretty sure I invented that phrase, but you can borrow it if you want.

Sooo.  Wedding photos.  So far I have culled over 900 photos down to a measly... 150ish of my favorites.  I'm actually still really overwhelmed by the amount of photos that I would LIKE to post on this here bloggity-blog.... but I'm just going to start with baby steps.


I thought I would stick to mostly-chronological order for the posting of The Official Wedding Photos.

If you need a wedding photographer (or family or infant photographer, for that matter) in central Indiana, you should definitely check out CarisDesign, who did all of the photos seen in this post.   I can't say enough fabulous things about them.

And before I say too much... here come the "Getting Ready" photos.

Because photographers are expensive, we started the photos after my hair and makeup was already done.  The maids and I converged upon one of my BFF's homes - where her mom had been feverishly prepping for the bridal party.  What a gift!!

Getting ready was one of my most-treasured parts of the day:  being surrounded by my BFFFFFFs, pretty dresses, and spraying deodorant on all of our sweaty bits so we wouldn't sweat through anything with nerves.

It's true what they say: PRICELESS

I seriously anticipated these robes for MONTHS before our wedding.  Awesome purchase!

I never did get to sip one of these fancy champagnes.  At least I don't think I did!

Because we are nothing if not awesome, we had to replicate our favorite Bridesmaids pose.

Nailed it!  We are such goofballs.

Aaand then - it was time for The Dress!!  The first pic below is one of my favorites of the day - I actually look nervous!

 Even though I feel like it was less nervous and more hurryup hurryup go go go face.

The first of many face-powdering pics.

 How stinking adorable are my bridesmaids in the mirror below? 

One day I'll probably write a long song to my wedding shoes.  It will be so beautiful.

Can't have a Hoosier wedding without some Vera Bradley bags peeking out in the corner of the pic below!

Only blondes on hair/veil duty....

As absolutely ecstatic as the photos I've posted make me... I can't believe there were even better moments to come!

Oh, I love it -- and have eagerly anticipated the unveiling (ha! puns!) of your wedding photos. And, um . . . great minds think alike, because yeah. Totally bought the exact same (or very similar?) robes for myself and my ladies. Did you get them from a lovely seamstress in India via Etsy?! I was ridiculously excited about their arrival, too, and still wear mine all the time!
