Much like the family photos, taking a ton of bridal party portraits was not something Mr. Cardigan and I were interested in. We absolutely love the photos that we do have, but we have all we need and we didn’t spend a ton of time on them. We took two sets of photos (with both family and bridal party)—one before the ceremony when Mr. Cardy and I hadn’t seen each other, and one after the ceremony.
I actually felt that doing the photos in two separate batches like that helped space things out and helped me (and everyone else) not get annoyed with standing there and smiling for forever. By breaking it up into two photo sessions, we got a little break in-between posing, which was very nice!
Alright, enough talk—let’s get to the photos! First up, I’ll share the ones taken before the ceremony.
And then the dudes.
And then, the photos taken with the whole group. I really love how these turned out—we chose to keep it extremely simple, and I am extremely happy with the photos we got!
Looking at all these photos makes me smile and it makes my heart swell to remember how wonderful all of our friends were at the wedding—we are so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives!
And now, let’s jump back in time a little bit to the photos taken before the ceremony. We’d finished up, and it was time to go get married!
Everyone was very ready, and very excited”¦
And so we began the walk over to the ceremony site!
Did you break up your formal photos, or did you do them all in one big session?
