Hi folks! I’m back from my trip to France and Spain with the hubs and it was amazing. Mr. Eggplant and I ate lots of tapas, took lots of metro trains, and even spoke some French and Spanish. Now that I’ve returned, it’s time to hurry and finish up the wedding recaps before our first wedding anniversary approaches.
All photographs are property of the awesome Apertura Photography.
If I could change one thing about our wedding, it wouldn’t be the bridesmaid dress fiasco. No, I would’ve left that well enough alone. The only thing I wish we had was more time for portraits. We set aside two hours, and it still seemed so short. But, I’m extremely happy with our photos so I have no complaints.
After our family formals in the sanctuary, we took photos with the bridal party in the church’s backyard.
I don’t remember what we were laughing about, but it could’ve been the fact that I tripped and fell on my face during the wedding rehearsal. I am truly a klutzball.
Next, Mr. Eggplant and I headed over to the Stanford University campus for some one-on-one time with our photographers. Stanford has a gorgeous campus and it was only five minutes from our church and reception venue. Admittedly, I was still a little shy in front of camera. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to being photographed while trying not to look like a total turd.
I’ve mentioned it before, but I love long veils. They can be so much fun on a windy summer day.
Mmmm. Old Spice or Teen Spirit?
No peeking, folks. This is a private kiss.
I was surprised that my veil didn’t fly clear off my head. It was quite windy on our wedding day. The fabric floated up like a kite as Mr. Eggplant and I wandered around the campus.
This picture was a two-page spread in our wedding album. So pretty!
Photoshop, I bow down to you. I wish my skin looked like this in real life!
This is one of Mr. Eggplant’s favorite photos of the whole wedding. At this point, Ray took off to photograph our wedding reception details while Erwin stayed with us to take a few more pictures. Somewhere around this time, my bustle busted, which is why Mr. Eggplant is holding up my dress in the picture. Luckily, I had a safety pin in the hotel room, which I used to pin the train up during the rest of the night.
This is my favorite photo of the wedding. It was also taken on the Stanford campus. When I finally get around to decorating our home, I plan to blow this up and frame it. I love that it’s a picture from our wedding, but it doesn’t look “wedding-y”.
We tried hard to look cool and nonchalant in our pics. I’m not so sure that it worked.
After our photo session was over, we scurried down the stairs and headed back to our reception, still right on schedule.
