Wedding Pictures!!! A sneak peek...

Well, our photographer, Robert Mullins has finally had a moment to post some sneak peek pics of us from the wedding day.  I have been stalking his web site like crazy and have to admit that I am super excited about the first photos I finally get to see.  How is it that pro-photogs always seem to make everything look so much better?  :)

So here they are...

My beautiful Maggie Sottero SaBelle gown hanging up from the patio rafters outside of our bridal cottage prep area.  Our photog refused to touch the dress himself so he asked my girls to take it out and hang it up for him. 

My super hot groom, Mr Fix It - no really...look how hot he looks!  And those blue eyes - swoon!

A close up of me.  I have to admit, I loved my makeup for sure...the hair was another story for a future recap, but this photo made me realize how great pro-photogs can make you look.  And I absolutely LOVE my necklace in this shot...wish it was just a little more in focus but hoping he got some good shots of it!
 

Um, hello?  Is that me?  LOVIN' IT!  And so is all my family...their favorite so far.
 

This is one of my very faves because it is kind of artsy, it totally shows off that gorgeous train and made me fall in love with my gown all over again and it has that great shot of the venue's name in the background.  This is just at the end of the main entrance - what the guests saw as they first drove into the estate. 
(Oh, and remember how I talked about how dirty my gown was under the train a few days ago? 
Yeah, well, this is why!  Look...pure dirt that dress is sitting on.)

Another great shot that I love because it shows off the amazing grounds of the estate. 
Up to the right of this picture (the little deck you can hardly see) is the cocktail area where guests can gather and look down.  I am standing at the very back of where our ceremony took place behind all of the chairs that were set up (not in the picture obviously).  The building in the background is called Rick's Cafe...it is a little multi-level restaurant type building with booths and chairs and tables throughout.  That is how the guests got down from the cocktail area to the ceremony area.  We also used that building to set up our kids' corner area where the babysitters hung out with a few kids playing games and watching movies and cartoons on portable DVD players.


And finally, a shot of Mr Fix It and I from inside of Rick's Cafe.  In this one, we are standing on the balcony that you see dead center and just to the right of the blue light post in the pic right above this one.  The second photographer was inside shooting this shot from the inside looking out and our main photog, Robert was down where I was standing in the pic above shooting us from below up on the balcony.  :) 
I love the silhouette.

So there you have it...our first sneak peek.  I am excited to announce that Robert e-mailed me yesterday saying he is almost ready to send the final disc of all our pro-pics...and as soon as I get it, the serious recaps will be in full swing.  For now, I have plenty of things involving some other stories and shots from friends and family as well as honeymoon recaps to keep those of you who are interested busy - more to come!

Gorgeous pics.

I totally agree about pro pics making everything look fab, I actually had to look again at some and go oh it is me!

Bet you are so excited to see the rest!

Our photographers were super quick since there are 2 of them and they had all the pics done 10 days after the wedding for us to see online. I have just seen the first draft of our album design and it looks fab.

Now I just need the dics of pics!

I am FREAKING OUT over these! They are perfect!! I cannot wait to see the rest of them!

Bicoastal Bride said...

Wow! These are stunning! I know what you mean about what a difference pro shots make. We initially skipped a pro engagement session, but we ended up doing one last weekend. I’ve only seen a few previews so far, but I feel like they make us look so much better than we normally do! I also think your makeup looks absolutely beautiful, and the shot your family and friends love is definitely my favorite, too. I’m sorry it sounds like you weren’t that thrilled with the way your hair turned out, but I think it looks really pretty in the pictures. I’ll stay tuned to hear more of that story…

A. Marigold said...

I'm sorry you don't like your hair! :(

You look gorgeous in these shots, though, really. :) And I noticed the same thing about my pro pics... I don't even look like myself in some of them (but I think I look hot, so I don't care! ;).
