We started with a few formal, portrait style shots which I am glad we have. (I didn't choose to take bridal portraits in a separate session with our photographer- guess I never understood the point of taking those prior to the wedding day).
I love this picture because it shows off my custom headpiece (e-mail me for more info. if you'd like it). The designer had me name it for her collection. It's called "le Dauphine" in tribute to our French/Italian theme and me feeling very princessy and Marie Antoinette-ish (I got to keep my head in the end but did enjoy the cake!)
My dad joined me for some hugs and pictures before heading outside to get some more photos.
Sharing a smile with my mom.
We squeezed all eight bridesmaids onto the front porch for this shot. I think it's one of my favorites from the day.
One with our flowergirl, my groom's niece.
And a fun family shot with my parents, siblings, nephew and niece.
One more of me watching a huge rain cloud blow in...
And a quick smile before I duck inside to wait for the trolley to arrive.
Next up: Goin' to the chapel and meeting the groom!
