Finally received all 4 DVDs of our wedding pics... about 2000 to be exact! We had a blast at our wedding -- even though we had to abandon our outdoor reception because of the gusty, cold wind! At least people were still able to eat dinner, but then all of us high-tailed it indoors for some warmth! Don't let the sun in all of the pictures fool you... it was freezing for us Californians (I even heard the New Yorkers were shivering too!).
Just a sample of the stuff I just got back from the photographer! I was so excited to get a free engagement photo session from my photographer for booking within 10 of initial meeting! WOW!! It came out to be more than 200 4x 6's plus wallets and two 8 x 10's -- all for FREE!! I found her through FI's brother out of Long Beach... the pic's are scanned onto my computer and enlarged so some look bad, but seriously, they are great quality in person!... I'm no expert on how to download a proper photo onto the computer ; )
Besides the earrings above my gals will be receiving Flip Ultra camcorders... I'm super excited about this b/c I'm hoping my twin sister (MOH) has some time to film the reception with her new camcorder... fingers crossed!
I made this brooch using the awesome tutorials on PW.
I was going to wear simple pearl earrings, but then my right ear decided to reject letting earrings reside there without being painful, so now my plan B are these clip-on earrings I found super cheap online. I tried to find one's that looked like Sarah Jessica Parker's earrings at her wedding (the one that never happened). :o)
These 3 earrings are gifts I am giving my MOH and BM's. I thought it would be cute to give them different styles to suit their different personalities.
P.S. All of the groomsmen will be wearing gray suits with white shirts and each will have a different tie in a pattern that incorporated gray and lavender! So cute! They are also getting gray Vans slip-ons... I can't wait to get some pic's! The groom will wear a tweed gray suit and a solid lavendar tie to distinguish himself from the pack of testosterone!
