While I was experiencing an odd mixture of gettin’ pretty amidst nerves and anxiety, Mr. S and his guys seemed to be having a good old time! He, his groomsmen, and our ushers met at the church to get ready, where they were joined by our fabulous second photographer for the day, Maggie Rife.
I love how excited he looks, like he’s telling a great story (I like to think it was about me!).
Oh, silly me, they’re just posing for some glamour shots. Don’t they all look great?! Mr. S did a great job of picking out a black suit with a very faint pinstripe from MW Tux for himself and all of the groomsmen. Our ushers just donned their own black suits and we gave them black and white striped ties.
It was a bit of a joke between Mr. S and me that the week before the wedding he needed to be living in a bubble… he’s a wee bit accident prone! I was very concerned that he’d show up with a cast on his hand or a Band Aid on his ring finger. We actually had some close calls just days before the wedding, but when the wedding day arrived, we were in the clear.
So seeing these pictures of him climbing a fence makes me VERY relieved that I didn’t know about this until well after the wedding, and that he made it to the wedding in one piece.
The climb up appears to be pretty easy.
Apparently climbing fences wasn’t enough. No, not when there’s a random mattress laying in an alley! You or I might just pass that by (especially on your wedding day!), but these guys thought it would be a great way to demonstrate that Mr. S was the man of the hour.

I know this post may have a slightly sarcastic tone, but in all honesty I’m so happy that Mr. S had a lot of fun before the ceremony. I was so tense that I could not relax until we said, “I do.” He was able to have some fun for the both of us!
Next up – Mr. S and I enjoy our first look before the ceremony.
