Two Wheels Become One: PDA on the Green

This is the post where I assail you with photos of the Unicycles gazing lovingly into each others’ eyes. If you’re thirsty for more, see our Milwaukee engagement session. (I’m assuming you’ll click this because you’re one of those people who stares at couples who kiss in public. I know your type.)

After we took our final wedding party photos, we released them to the cocktail hour to get their signature cocktail on. They basically ran toward the flowing booze like moths to a bug zapper. Our photographer had other plans for me and Mr. U though. We decided to take a golf cart out onto the green (that’s what golf courses are called, right?) and take advantage of some of the beautiful scenery for our couples portraits.

I really wish we had some affiliation with golfing so this photo would be more poignant.

We found this cool bridge with weeping willows around it and took a bunch of shots through the branches.

Mr. Unicycle alternated between whispering “poop” to make me laugh, and whispering actual sweet nothings.

I forgot how romantic and warm/fuzzy the engagement session was. The shots we took on the golf course were the same way. At first I thought the photos were just something to get through so we’d have nice, frame-able memories of the wedding, but taking the photos was actually really enjoyable, too. While we were out on the golf course, miles (okay not miles) away from our guests, I didn’t even think about getting back to the cocktail hour. The only people who existed in the world were me and Mr. Unicycle. And our two photographers. And two videographers. And that stray golfer who didn’t get the memo that the course was closed.

This is one of my favorites. I look, in a word, GOOD.

No wait, this is one of my favorites. Seriously, hire our photographer for your wedding. If I were the type of person who hung enormous self portraits above my fireplace (and if I owned a fireplace), I’d blow this bad boy up and slap it on the wall.

I remember the photographer told us to look at each other while walking toward her, and I was just overtaken with how happy I was at that moment. I had a few “lucid” moments during the wedding day where I was like “wow, this is really happening. This is my actual wedding day. I’m actually married.” And this was one of them. I may not have gotten that feeling walking down the aisle, but I got it walking down the bridge!

Gratuitous kissing shot. Heterophobes, cover your eyes!

Every time we’re around water Mr. Unicycle says “Oh look, a fish!” and I say “Where?” and he points, and I see nothing. Pretty sure that is happening in this photo too.

I wish we could admire nature while looking phresh to death every day.

Next, we left the bridge and took some general grassy shots.

When I’m mad at Mr. Unicycle I can look at this picture and melt inside and then I’m not mad at him anymore. That’s why I never look at it when I’m mad, because sometimes he deserves to suffer my wrath, you know?

It kind of looks like Mr. U has a walrus mustache here. My hair needs to be put on a leash, like yesterday.

I love the pictures where my veil looks like a poof ball. Also POCKETS!

What. A. Hottie. Amirightladeez???

These photos were actually taken earlier in the day, when the wedding party was still with us and the cocktail hour hadn’t started yet. But I figured I’d sneak them in here.

Oh hey, how’s the weather up there?

These next few photos remind me of Mrs. Ostrich’s photographer’s style. So artsy! Fun fact: The Unicycles took a class together in college on Miksang Photography, and this style totally reminds me of the “dot in space” concept.

And I just had to throw this one in too because I’ll never look this friggin regal again.

See? Back to not being regal. Also note the look of confusion on Mr. Unicycle’s face. He did not get it when I said to make a badass face. He looks like he feels bad about the gesture he’s making.

    LOL maybe he was going for mobster/suave bad ass? I can kind of see that, if I, you know, tilt my head and squint my eyes?

    1. “Mr. Unicycle alternated between whispering “poop” to make me laugh, and whispering actual sweet nothings.” I JUST DIED.

    2. Walrus Mustache – I JUST DIED AGAIN.
