Alright, y’all, it’s about to get a little self-centered up in here. Fair warning.
Before we headed out to take family photos and whatnot, Melanie forced me to sit down for a few bridal shots. I say forced because, at the time, I totally wasn’t interested in taking these photos. I was antsy and anxious and I wanted to get the hell out of that room.
HOWEVER. Mel totally knew what she was talking about because I’m so glad I have these. It’s not like I’ll ever hang them up in our house or anything (awkward!) but it’ll be nice to look back on these and remember that I used to be young and hot.
(I can’t be the only one who does this awkward smile-with-my-tongue thing, right?)
I felt really weird taking these photos because, um, I don’t normally sit in chairs like that. Melanie kept telling me “scoot your butt forward!” and I couldn’t stop laughing because I felt like such an idiot. But looking back at them? I’m glad I listened.
It wasn’t easy for me to sit still and take these photos while everyone else was flying around the room getting ready, but I love looking at them, and it brings me right back to that moment every time I see them. Anxious, excited, nervous, and dying to see Mr. Cardigan and just get married already!
With the bridal portraits finished it was finally time to get the show on the road. Family photos were next on the agenda, and then it was time to get hitched!
Did you take any bridal shots on the day of your wedding? Were you as antsy as I was?
