Wanting to Know you Wens : Our Weddings!

i am so excited for this week's virtual date because how pretty where you lovies on your most magical day?!
this is one of the photos i love from our wedding (i adore how my husband is looking at me), the day after this past Thanksgiving. My father married us in the church i grew up in, in front of only our closest friends and family. Actually my favorite photos from our wedding is the candid moments {and Erin, yes my dress was vintage! which was exactly what i was looking for and got so lucky to find}.

^Kat and her Daniel who just celebrated 5 years!

^Abi (fellow Texan!) who will be celebrating 2 years in September (i love her veil!)

^Amanda on her wedding day who will be celebrating a year on the 15th and added, "it's been the best ride ever!" (photo by Jeff Loves Jessica photography)

^Diana (love the Priscilla Presley feel and the book love!) and her husband who have been married 3 years but says she still feels like newlyweds. i hope i always feel that way too!

^Marisa's beautiful autumn wedding in Chicago wearing a j.crew dress (which was my original dream!) Her and her darling husband are going on 4 years. M: "my wedding day was perfect... weather, family and finally finding the man who loves me despite myself. i'm a lucky girl."

^Shell who's been married to "this handsome husband of mine for almost 4 years." 


^Marianne (my twinkie!) and her husband Philip at their reception February 10, 2007. "I have loved Philip since i was 17. He proposed to me at the DFW airport after i had been away in Europe for the summer. We had been apart for two and half months, the longest time spent apart. Our wedding was absolutely everything i had dreamed about as a little girl." 

^Elisabeth and her husband Brandon moments after saying "i do" a year and a half ago (i love her giddy expression! beautiful)

^Jasmine who married her best friend on the 9th of jan this year. "We don't have our professional photos yet, but this is my favorite 'guest' photo of the happiest day of my life." i have to say jasmine, i love the effect of this one... like a dream which suits such a day!

^Kary and her husband Humberto at their reception (don't you love the cake?!) 9 years ago.

^Erin and A on August 9th, 2002 "loveliest, most fun day ever!"

^Emily and her Frenchie on their wedding day 20 Sept. 2008 in Gap France, a small town in the southern part of the French Alps. "My wedding dress wasn't exactly traditional but it was love at first sight! And those purple shoes? They still make my heart skip a beat." Em, i happen to love non-traditional weddings!

^Gracie and her husband who've been married a year now. "I chose this one because it captured a moment when we were genuinely laughing. It made me remember how fun the ceremony was and how laid back we were all day." 

^Courtney and her husband Tony (the man who saved me many a times as my photographer when i was reporting!) who got married right when she just turned 18 back in 2003. "We had wanted to get married at the justice of peace but on the specific day we wanted to get married they were having a conference and ALL the judges were going to be at this conference. So, I hit google and found a Pastor who could marry us out on this gorgeous property in Sedona, AZ right in front of Cathedral Rock and we got married 8 years ago right at sunset." 

^Erin during her Cinderella Moment-- "The husband was putting my shoes back on during the reception so we could have our first dance. (Who decided I should wear heels?? lol) I couldn't reach my feet, because of my ginormously poofy dress. As you can see, we were laughing about it." 

^Melissa and her husband Doug at their wedding 15 years ago (i love the hats and shared smiles!)

^Meghan (what a beautiful bouquet!) with her husband of almost 2 years now

^Skye and her husband on their wedding day, 11/7/09 "still complete bliss!"

^Heather and S who have been married a little over 1.5 years and recently celebrated another magical day, the birth of their beautiful son. They got married in Istanbul, Turkey (his sister made her dress for the big day... amazing, no?) and Heather adds, "i have the wedding dress that both my mom and grandma wore and someday hope to have a Cali ceremony or fiesta here so i can wear it too!" 

^Kaylia, a fellow newlywed who's been married 3 months (don't you love her bridesmaid dresses?!)

^Amanda who married her husband on Sept. 28, 2008. 

i came up with this virtual date because of the Royal Wedding and Amanda wrote this, "I'm not royalty, but on my special day I definitely felt like I was a princess marrying her knight." 

You definitely looked the part! as all of you beautiful brides did.

For those of you that will someday walk down the aisle to your husband-to-be, i pray you feel that way too.

So many things to love about this post...

1. I love that photo of me on my wedding day. I don't think I stopped smiling once all day!

2. I love that Em's wedding photo is right below mine. She is my favourite friend in the whole wide world, and she looked GORGEOUS in that dress with the purple shoes! And the lavender was so lovely too...

3. Everyone's gorgeous dresses. Swoon.

4. That quote at the end. So, so true.

This was a wonderful idea, M! Thank you! xoxox

This is sooooooo sweet. I was afraid that looking at this post was gonna make me wistful and anxious about being almost 30 and still single . . . but really, I loved it. Of course I love all your wedding pictures and Marianne's--you both have the most beautiful smiles. Meghan's bouquet is amazing--I feel like she posted a pic of her wedding recently and I made that comment. I LOVE bright colors! Erin Pugh looks radiant, and I looooooooove the picture of Gracie laughing! It's tremendous! You are all incredibly lucky that you've found your sweet, perfect partners. I hope to be so lucky one day.
