Linked with Love: Couple’s Portraits

Once we wrapped up our group pictures, we sent the wedding party back to the cocktail hour. Mr. Bracelet and I stayed behind with our photographers to take pictures of just us together.

We started out by taking photos next to the parking lot. Although it might sound a bit odd, the area had great light, beautiful trees, and a superb view of the canyon.


I told you guys that we were getting married in Spearfish Canyon!



Next, we moved on to a wooden bridge located near the Lodge’s restaurant. BM P and I had discovered this location the day before when we scouted all the “scenic” spots close by: two waterfalls, three bridges, nature trails, etc.






As we wrapped up taking pictures on the bridge, I was pretty tired from (what felt like) endless photo taking and hours of traipsing around in high heels. I had gotten dressed at 11:00 AM and pretty much kept busy since then, except for a brief respite when the guys were taking their pictures. With ouchy feet, I requested that Mr. Bracelet carry me back to the cocktail hour. (I love being carried; it happens frequently in our household.)



Our photographer Amy got excited when she discovered my shoes peeking out.



I love this photo in so many ways.

    Love the ones where he’s carrying you! Our photographer asked Mr. Whale if he could pick me up, and we just couldn’t do it :)

    Loving all your pictures so much! Can’t imagine how you could pick favorites – there are so many good ones, both in terms of scenery but also you two!

    I love your photos, the back drop is gorgeous. And for some reason that bridge reminds me of a Japanese bridge!
