Our Wedding: First Look Pictures

I love the idea of doing the first look at the alter - so so sweet!  However, knowing me - I knew I couldn't do it! I would be a crying, bubbling mess and makeup would be running down my face. Not cute!

So we did what a lot of people do: first look pictures!  We did it at Volunteer Park in a shady, grassy area and it was just perfect.  Nick finally got to see the dress I had picked out six months earlier and it was a memory I will have with me forever.

Our Wedding: Bridal Party

Moving on to our fabulous bridal party!  Nick and I are so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing friends and we were truly honored to have them stand next to us on the most important days of our lives, they truly are like our second family and we adore them.  I could gush for hours, literally.

The majority of these pictures were taken at Volunteer Park, a lovely space in Seattle on Capitol Hill, where Nick and I did our first look pictures.

Our Wedding: Getting Ready

Well since we're approaching our 1-year anniversary (wow how time flies!) I figured I should probably blog our wedding pictures.  Better late than never!

The night before the wedding my five bridesmaids and I stayed in a hotel room in downtown Seattle.  I loved having all my best friends with me on my last night as a Miss, it meant so much to me.

The next morning, my mom joined us and we went to a salon down the street and got our hair and makeup done and got dressed in the hotel room.  I fell in love with my dress the second I saw it and I must add that my mom made my beautiful, long veil!  She did such a great job and I loved it!

Here are some of my favorites from getting ready.
