Something Good This Way Comes: Pencils’ Post-Wedding Photo Shoot

FAIR WARNING: This post contains many, MANY photos.

After Mr. Pencils and I shared champagne with our nearest and dearest, we ventured out into the sweeping hills for a bit of alone time (that our wonderful photographers just happened to capture on film).



I remember saying to Mr. P at this moment, “I can’t believe we did it—we’re married. I’m your WIFE!”



A large part of the reason we loved our venue, Morningside Inn, was the gorgeous willow tree on the property. We had to get some photos taken with it!


Isn’t he handsome?


And you saw the sassy version of the next photo in my sneak peek





Drama, anyone?


Then our photogs said, close your eyes… and we awkwardly did so…


But I sincerely love this next one… the moment is really hitting us. It’s real.


But we’re still goofy…


Ah yes, and then we trekked again. I worked out quite a bit on my wedding day, lugging that dress up and down many hills! Mr. P carried my bouquet, the gentleman he is.


“Look back!”



We naturally kiss this way in public, all.the.time.


And Mr. P always leads me across beautiful green meadows, looking adoringly back at me…


You’ve also seen the black and white close up version of the following… but our photog framed this moment so well!


And then Mr. P lifted me, ten pound dress and all!



Our venue looked freaking gorgeous at sunset that night…


And then we did something that puts us in the ranks of true dorks… we asked our photog to snap a photo with us! He did so obligingly. I present, our amazing photog Brian!


Our last stop was the small lake/large pond area.





Did I mention that Mr. P also went back to find my shoes, as I had taken them off for this entire shoot?


Let the party begin!
