Our Wedding: Pre-ceremony pictures

Here are some random pictures of us all hanging out before the ceremony and before the formal pictures were taken.  I love the pictures of my dad holding my train and veil!

Our ceremony was in the chapel of an all-girls Catholic school here in Seattle - Holy Names Academy.  I didn't go to this school, but fell in love with it the second I stepped inside the chapel, it was perfect.  And it was a very short distance to our reception site, which was great as well.  

I got to show off my dress to our family that was there early for the pictures. Before we went out Meghan led a prayer and my bridesmaids prayed over me and then it was time for the big event!
