Tales from the Wedding { Part 1 }


Like I said here, I am firm believer that a wedding is just one day…


and ours was Just. One. Day.


One Sunday at the end of November.


One beautiful, incredibly significant, slightly stressful day.

I love the photos that are photographer captured before the wedding started. The getting ready. The setting up. The first look. But photos don’t capture everything. They don’t capture the stress on Friday when Gerber called me to say, “Mi amor, don’t panic, but the wedding site isn’t reserved” { yes, you read that correctly…it was NOT reserved as of the Friday before the wedding! God bless our dear wedding coordinator-  just one minor detail.}

The photos, don’t capture my frustration when I realized that I lost my cell phone 2 days before the wedding, which I should mention had every number I needed for the wedding. { good job, Michelle }

The photos, also fail to capture the frenzy and craziness of hosting, translating and coordinating transportation for 28 dear family and friends. { who I could not have imagined our wedding without…I just failed to anticipate how much time and energy it would take to be the host and the bride. Two roles I did not balance very well. }

But what these photographs do capture is the JOY we both felt, the LOVE and SUPPORT we received, and the sheer ENJOYMENT of that day. Our Wedding Day.
