Right after the ceremony, we were supposed to take a quick, romantic trip around downtown Savannah in the horse and carriage. But when we got to the end of the aisle, we discovered that it was already gone! I found out later that it was mistakenly booked 30 minutes earlier than we needed it for (which explains why it was at the hotel early), so the driver took off before the ceremony was over.
So we used the extra time to grab a few more photos before our family formals. Only this time, we were husband and wife!
Come away with me!
Yeah, we totally took photos in front of some random house on the square. Hope they didn’t mind!
At this point, I’d only been wearing my shoes for a total of around 30 minutes. And I would only wear them about another hour. I’m still sad about not getting be with them most of the day. 🙁
Once the trolley cleared all the guests out of the square, we started taking formals with our families.
Lab brothers and Mama Lab
With Mr. Lab – For some reason, my sisters left the square before photos, so I never got a full family photo. I had no idea they were gone until we started taking photos! 🙁
Mr. Lab and his family. He married into a HUGE family compared to his.
Me with Mr. Lab’s family and his BIL
I wanted one with my oldest brother, his children, and his fiancee (who’s now his wife!). He was on leave from Iraq, so I love that I got this photo especially since he’s still over there.
Us with the younger members of our wedding party (junior bridesmaids, flower girls, and ring bearer). All of them are my nieces and nephew! Mr. Lab went from having no nieces or nephews to having 6!
Aren’t they the cutest things EVER?!
And while we were taking photos, our second shooter was off being silly with the rest of the wedding party. From what I hear, they were told to make their best mug shot faces!
The trolley finally came back from dropping off the guests for cocktail hour. We loaded up, snapped a pic, and were on our way to the reception!
Are you planning to take any photos right after the ceremony, or will you head straight to your reception?
