I got a lot of questions about Mr. Onion’s reaction to his wedding gift — the album of “intime photos” that Tony Yang took. My earlier post, “Tony’s Girls,” created quite a stir and was a great conversation. You all seemed to have very strong opinions about the subject of “boudoir photos” but this is what weddingbee is all about — sharing experiences and opinions!
Here is the hard cover album I ordered from www.mpix.com. I’d highly recommend mpix — the quality was much better than the Shutterfly album I’d ordered a few months earlier and the prices were competitive. $30 for a 10×10 hard cover book with 20 pages and it arrived so quickly! There was a choice of paper at no addition cost — glossy, matte or linen. I chose linen because I wanted the album to feel soft and romantic. I’ll be ordering from them again for sure.
Below is a quick glance inside the book
Right, so onto Mr. Onion’s reaction. He gave me his gift first — of course there were tears and lots of hugging! Then I gave him the book all wrapped up. I was really nervous. A little piece of me was worried he’d be jealous or uncomfortable that the images were taken by another man. But I got over that very quickly — if I really thought that would be the case then I wouldn’t have had the photos taken to begin with.
He was blown away. He opened the book to the first page, read it and kissed me. I printed some text that read “With all my heart on our wedding day.” I said — “wait wait…there’s more!” I watched him flip page after page with a smile on his face. It was a great feeling. When he got to end I said “Well?!?!” He simply said “You’re hot” and laughed…then proceeded to kiss me some more. It was just the reaction I was looking for – for him to be excited and thrilled.
I’m glad that I gave the gift to him in private two days before the wedding instead of on the morning of the wedding in front of our photographers and/or his groomsmen (his dad was one of them — not something I want my FIL to be thinking about)! Haha. All in all I’m really glad that I had this experience and was able to share these images with him. It will be a wonderful thing to look back on some day.
