Because of all the fiascos that took place on our wedding day, we weren’t able to get those classic/picture-esque “getting ready” shots. But what we did get was really beautiful and amazing photos that showcased our personalities and meant more to us. Don’t get me wrong I’m totally bummed I didn’t get the “putting on the shoes” picture, but in the long run is that what I need? No, instead this is the gem I treasure the most…
That is Mr. AZ’s infamous Grandma Peggy. The Grandmother who upon my meeting her (approximately 5 months into dating Mr. AZ) proclaimed I was not allowed to leave. She is the Grandma we spent endless hours playing Bananagrams with and the active-on-the-go Grandmother I hope to be one day. We also got some hilarious, funny-face photos…
The above shot is Mr. AZ dealing with yet another crisis, or at least that’s what I recall. And below is Mr. AZ making his “dapper Dirk” face, which makes me giggle!
We also had some awesome shots of our beautiful bridesmaids chillin’ in the Bridal Suite. I love their dresses, they photograph so well.
Yes I realize this next photo makes Mr. AZ look really weird and me all in shadow, but I love how my shoes popped, so whatever it’s being included even though it’s not really flattering.
Then I began getting choked up and close to crying. It was really starting to sink in that in less than 30 minutes we would Mr. & Mrs. AZ.
Should I mention that only one of the above photos was taken by one of our “professionals”? I really love candid photos because I don’t freak out. These are from our good friend’s camera. She and her husband have known Mr. AZ for approximately 15 years. The husband served as a groomsmen and a really awesome candid photo-taker as well. Up next: the ceremony!
