Puppy Love: Newlywed Pics Take 1

Once the ceremony was complete and we were officially married (yay!) the guests headed to the barn to get cocktail hour rolling, while Mr. Dalmatian and I took a private moment in the groom’s cottage to reflect on the fact that WE JUST GOT MARRIED! After reflecting and quickly eating the plate of appetizers that was waiting for us, it was time to bustle my dress. This turned out to be a slightly more challenging task than anticipated. I guess that’s the price I pay for a full skirt of many, many layers of tulle and pick-ups.


It took Mr. Dalmatian, MOH K, MOH A, and our Cedarwood coordinator to get things organized under there! Once I was bustled, I sent my lovely MOHs to join the cocktail hour party, and my new hubby and I went to take some photos as husband and wife.

We headed to the front yard first, where we did not let the fact that the swing was merely inches off the ground stop us from using it for a photo opportunity.



We then wandered onto the front porch where we were able to kick back and relax for a few moments.




Of course we had to snap a classic shoes shot while we were at it.


Before leaving the front yard, we stole a few more kisses and snapped a few more pics.




I love how the last shot focuses on the Mason jar. OK, let’s be honest—I love anything that focuses on a Mason jar.

Did your dress have a bustle? If so, was it a challenge to get in place?

Did you take photos immediately after the ceremony?

    Yeah my bustle wasn’t too good! By the end of the night the bottom of my dress was all torn because people (myself included) kept stepping on it as I danced! I love the last shot of the mason jar! And the shoe shot! I insisted on a shoe shot too!
