While I was getting ready upstairs with the girls, my photographer was busy downstairs taking pictures of the guys.
One of my favorite shots of the day
After our First Look was over, we brought out the wedding party to get some fun group shots. My photographer did a great job of coming up with different poses and layouts for the pictures. Here are some of my favorites...
As we were taking these pictures, my dad unexpectedly came out the front door. We had kept my dress a secret from him and he hadn't seen me yet in it. I wanted to do a "First Look" type of thing with him in private so my photographer could get some shots of him first seeing me, but those plans quickly changed when he walked out while we were taking pictures. I was a little disappointed, but wasn't going to get upset about it. It all worked out and my photographer got a few great shots of the whole moment.
I love this one because you can see my Dad holding back some tears. He seems tough but he's just a big softy!
Since the family had arrived, we decided to get some family portraits outside.
Then we headed inside for a few more shots around the club.
Before we knew it, it was time for everyone to head off for the ceremony. But not before we raided the photobooth prop box and got one last picture...
Up next, the ceremony!
