PaC Man & Wife: Guys Ready…and Waiting

The guys had their own suite just down the hall from the girls. Since the guys had neither hair nor makeup to deal with, their morning was relatively free of obligations. Mr. PaC and Co. lounged about, making several appearances in the bridal suite. Mostly these visits were thinly veiled attempts to swipe more of those delicious potato chips.

Our photography team arrived mid-morning and the second shooter scooted them back into their own suite for some guy time.

Final adjustments to the pocket square

Mr. PaC is a typical man in that he does not particularly enjoy being the focus of a photographer’s attention. He didn’t have me to pick on, pinch, or pester as a distraction either. You’ll notice in the groomsmen shots below, there are four men, but we only had three in the bridal party. Because my dad was hanging out with the guys, he made it into the groomsmen shots (which I loved), but Mr. PaC wishes he had some with his dad too.

Doesn’t this feel like an album cover? Dad and I jokingly refer to it as “The Beatles” picture.

Each man, true to form

With the groomsmen photos out of the way, the guys were free to roam the mansion until the other half of the bridal party was ready. Before the girls could meet up with guys, I had to get dressed…and accessorize, pose for bridal portraits, meet my groom for our first look, and pose for bride and groom portraits. All that is coming—soon! But you’ll want to hang around because next up are the long-awaited shots of me slipping into my gown!

    @paw: maybe I should enlarge it, throw an album frame around it and gift it to him for Christmas!

    @Mrs. Pony & @bailey12: I agree! Because these are so much fun, I wish his dad would have been around at this time. (He had driven back home to pick up family.)
