The Time of Our Lives: A Few Formal Pictures and An Uninvited Guest

So you’re probably thinking, Mrs. Tiramisu, you sure talked a big talk about a storm on your wedding day. What gives? Hang in there, it’s about to get more interesting!

When we first arrived at the reception site (after a windy return trip on the trolley), it was all blue skies and sun, and we were optimistic that it would stay that way.

As our guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, we headed off to a pretty spot on the lawn overlooking the Nubble Lighthouse for a few formal pictures. Our photographer did a great job getting us through the long list of shots that we wanted to have quickly””which turned out to be especially important in our case…

All photos””unless noted””by Samantha Warren Weddings.

I’ll admit that looking through family portraits of strangers is not the most exciting thing, so I’ll share with you just a few of my favorites…

There’s another picture where we’re all looking at the camera and smiling, but I love this one more. If only we could remember what made my Nana crack up:

My Mom and my Dad happily obliged me for a picture together:

The handsome (and very coordinated) Mr. Tiramisu siblings:

My side of the family-turned-bridal-party crew (with a guest appearance by my adorable niece):

I love this picture of me with my brother and sister:

Which is pretty fun to compare to this picture of the three of us taken at my brother’s wedding six years ago:

We then let our parents head off to enjoy the cocktail hour and took a few pictures with our bridal party. First off, the beautiful bridesmaids:
The whole crew:

During this next shot I realized that the sky in the distance was looking decidedly not so blue and sunny. I was trying hard to smile anyways:

The handsome boys:

Mr. Tiramisu puts on his best serious face:

Time for a few of the newlyweds, who are totally oblivious to the flocks of birds flying east away from the quickly darkening sky:

This shot was well-timed with a particularly scary clap of thunder:

Followed by a huge gust of wind:

So we decided to cut our photo session a little short and head towards the tent, keeping an eye on the encroaching dark skies:

All’s well facing east:

But let’s take a look in the other direction:

Maybe we should pick up the pace a little:

Our photographer (and her fancy camera) though maybe it was best to run as well:

So there we were, the oh-so intelligent Tiramisus, taking cover under our metal pole tent as the thunder and lightning moved in…

Next time: see what happens””on video!

    I agree with everyone else that, A, you’re incredibly photogenic, and B, the color of those dresses is STUNNING. And that’s coming from someone who hates, hates, hates matching bridesmaid dresses. :p
