Now that we've gotten my Public Service Announcement out of the way, let's resume the Rainbow recaps, shall we?
When we were done with family formals, It was time for Mr. R and I to go off on our own and take a few photos separately and together. At one point, Jessica our photographer, asked me to "swish" my dress. I'll be honest, I felt like a 5 year old idiot, but in hindsight, she knew what she was doing. I am so, so in love those photos! They certainly capture that child-like joy and excitement.
Of course we've got to show some love the the bouquet! The florist quoted me $150 for my bouquet, which I thought was ridic since I wasn't getting any exotic flowers, so I ended up just buying flowers and doing it myself! It turns out, putting together a bouquet really isn't hard at all. I am still so happy with how they turned out, and I saved myself $100!
I love how the navy blue suit brings out Mr. R's eyes. He wanted to go for black at first, but as soon as he put on the navy blue, we both knew it was "The One". He got his very own Cinderella moment! Don't tell him I told you that...
In this shot, the photographer asked me to make him laugh. I may or may not have made a lewd gesture while no one was looking. Hey, it works every time!
Finally, it was time for us to reunite.
"Hold my train, boo!"
We posed for a few shots under our massive wedding tree, which my mom likes to call "the Avatar tree". The first one feels so somber, but in a good way, if that makes sense- it reminds me of American Gothic.
I was a little hesitant to sit for these shots because I was practically sewn into my dress, and I discovered (in the car ride to the ceremony) that when I sat down, the boning constricted my ribs so much that I could barely breathe. I'm pretty sure I was thisclose to passing out in the car before the ceremony!
But then! Then we got to lay down. I have never cherished the ground as much as I did in that moment.
That blissful smile? 92.5% of that is the fact that I was laying down. Sorry to break it you, Mr. Rainbow. Don't worry, I still love you, I just really, really loved laying down. A lot.
But not as much as I love you, promise.
Miss a recap? Don't fret!
First, we rang in our New Years Day wedding day!
Then, the Rainbows got ready... together!
Next, I became a bride.
I walked down the aisle toward my love,
and we got married!
We made our way back up the aisle as husband and wife,
and made some time for family photos.
