Far Beyond Forever: A Guinea Pig Photo Shoot

Once Mr. GP and I had finished oohing and ahhing over each other at our first look, it was time for some portraits! At this point we were getting close to ceremony time, and guests would be arriving on the shuttles any minute. How was time passing so quickly?!

First, my shoes got their moment to peek through and shine:


(Note Mr. GP not wearing argyle socks. The man steadfastly refused!)

Then Mr. GP and I basically just hung out in this room being photographed for a bit. 🙂



It’s funny, I felt a little weird being photographed, but it wasn’t nearly as awkward as I thought it would be. Perhaps that’s wedding day amnesia? I will say that in our nervousness about the day (and probably also a little about being photographed), we fell back on the good ol’ standard of kissing and hugging. 😀 Thankfully our photographers were really good about capturing the sweet moments in between as well (otherwise we’d only have photos of us kissing, I think)!



At this point our venue coordinator came to tell us that guests were waiting outside to be let in to the venue and be seated for the ceremony, so we needed to hurry up and get back in our hideout spots! I love this next photo because I can clearly read in my face what I’m thinking: “Are you ready? Do you realize what we’re about to go do?!” – I was still happy and nervous!


Then it was a quick walk back to the bridal suite for me, with Mr. GP heading back to the guys. As promised in my last post, here are a couple photos of my veil in the wind outside between buildings! At first it just went straight out behind me, but as I turned back to take one last look at Mr. Guinea Pig, it decided it preferred being straight up above my head!


And then of course, I needed a bit of help from Teresa (coordinator) to get through the door!


I love these photos because they’re hilarious, and as much as I REALLY wish we’d been able to take photos outside, I’m glad we got some normal, non wind-whipped photos of us. We’ll save the dresses-flying-around, hair-in-faces outdoor photos for the bridal party! Ha 😀

Up next: Guests arrive and we all prepare to get down to the business of gettin’ married

Were you nervous during your photos?
