It’s finally ready, it’s finally ready! I don’t know this for a fact, but I do believe Lyndsay probably stalked my blog all day……..just a guess :-)
This past Saturday worked out perfectly. It rained all morning, then stopped raining, then stayed cloudy so that we didn’t have to worry too much about lighting. It made me a happy girl- but I think it made Lyndsay a nervous wreck! I know my brides want to punch me in the face every time I tell them, “rain on your wedding day is good luck!”…but it is! My thought is that the day is going to happen no matter what, rain or shine, so why not just sit back and enjoy it and take the rain as a blessing :-) That is exactly what Mike & Lyndsay did.
I just love them! They’re so cute together, so funny ( I was seriously on the verge of tears during the pictures of just the two of them, flippin’ hysterical!) and……………my favorite part………….they did NOT smash cake in each other’s face!!!! My mom has always said it’s a sign of disrespect when they shove cake in each other’s face and I’ve always agreed. So I always wait, watch and hope….. Mike & Lyndsay were all cute and sweet. I was smiling, clapping and saying “yayyy!” while the groomsmen were standing behind me shouting “booooooooooo!” I’m not saying it’s a thing that will make or break your marriage. Don’t over think it :-)
Anyway- Mike and Lyndsay were so laid back in every aspect of the day. The only time it got tense was when we were trying to finish pictures after the wedding, but everyone was starving and we still had more pictures to do. Note to future bride & grooms: Contrary to popular belief, you are allowed to eat on your wedding day. There is no rule saying you can’t eat throughout the day :-) I encourage you to eat a normal breakfast and a normal lunch and possibly a snack or two because chances are you might get two bites in at your reception before someone wants to talk to you. Luckily- we got through most of the pictures, I had to give up on getting a couple of shots I had in mind, but we made it through without anyone in the wedding party trying to kill me :-) Win, win!
We started our day off at the hair salon with some hairspray, make-up, breakfast, champagne & coffee. All good things!
Being a freckled girl myself, I just ADORE Lyndsay’s freckles. She is seriously one of the most striking girls I’ve ever seen. So beautiful :-) Way to rock the freckles, Lyndsay!!!
Lindsay was my second shooter for the day and she did awesome!!!! Looking through her images sometimes makes me wish I could be the second shooter and get those moments off to the side. I LOVE her shots!!! Make sure to notice the different watermarks and compliment her on her work! Yayyy Lindsay :-)
The suspenders proved to be awfully tricky :-) Teamwork was the key!
Hope you guys enjoyed your sneak peek!! You were a blast to work with and Lindsay and I both had a great time :-)
Since we’re on the subject of weddings……………
guess what came out today……….
Check it out HERE
So when I went and saw this with Caroline way back when, there were several times during the movie where i felt like i was going to die because I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t breathe because I was laughing/crying so hard. Like to the point I thought I might have to step out and catch my breath :-) GRANTED- there are some parts that can most definitely be left out, but I still find the movie absolutely hysterical.
After the movie, Caroline was like, “you and Annie are the same person. You act the same, you have the same sense of humor, the same luck and your apartments look the same….you don’t have creepy roommates, but you have some creepy people that live in your building.”
Although I don’t think I’m like exactly Annie, I do have to admit……….the whole scene when she get’s pulled over and starts dancing during her sobriety test….yeah- that’s totally me :-) The air plane scene….yeah portions of that are very much me as well. Lastly- I have a STRONG, STRONG dislike girls like Helen. STRONG.
My mom hasn’t seen it and she wants to watch it at Caroline’s Bachelorette party in about a month……any thoughts?? skip the opening scene?? :-)
