The Big Day: Part One

July 04, 2012
My anniversary isn't until next Tuesday, but I wanted to do a little series of photos from my special day to share with you. Here are a couple from me getting ready all the way to the official kiss, and I'll be sharing candid photos from the photo session as well as photos from the reception with you on Friday. Enjoy :)

Getting My Hair Did: I had a hair trial a couple of weeks before the big day, and my hairdresser told my mom and I that we should detach my veil from the comb and sew on some Velcro so that it could be taken off the comb at the reception. That way, I wouldn't have to leave it in -- because, let's face it, it feels like it's going to be ripped off your head while people are hugging you -- and I wouldn't have to take the comb out and ruin my up-do. She arranged for a few pieces of hair to be hanging out in that area so that we could place them over the comb, and no one would be the wiser. Pure genius!

My Daddy's Boutonniere: this is one of my absolutely favourite photographs from the big day :)

The Ladies have Arrived: Taking a quick photo outside the church just after the ladies arrived in a purple Grand Am convertible -- my parents and I arrived in a purple Trans Am convertible, courtesy of my pianist and her husband.

The Last Walk: making my way down the aisle with my parents to Camille Saint Saens The Swan -- I absolutely love that piece -- I didn't think I would cry, but as I went to hug my Dad when we reached the end of the walk, the tears came flowing down.

Husband and Wife: making our way back up the aisle to sign the register and have our first real kiss as husband and wife :)

The Kiss: enough said.
