Hey all, we have been running around like crazy doing wonderful wedding things. This weekend we were able to finally decide on Bridesmaid's dresses, Candle Lighter dresses, tuxes, official color scheme for the wedding, and get our engagement pictures back (taken over Memorial Day weekend).
The day we took our pictures was very hot and humid, but Stephanie was truly a trooper! She followed us around Loose Park and the Nelson-Atkins art museum looking for photo opportunities (seriously, email me if you want to give her business... she was GREAT!). We had dinner at her place this weekend with some other friends and were SUPER pleased when we got the pictures back!!!! :)
Here are a few of our favorites:
Also, this weekend brought an end to the ultimate dress search. My parameter for BM dresses and CL dresses were that they covered in a modest fashion and did not make my friends and family look like street walkers. It was definitely a far more difficult task than I could have ever anticipated. However, with a few deep breaths and lots of support, we were able to put a style number with the vision in my head (trust me, it is usually pretty difficult to match reality with my ideas). :)
The wedding plans are definitely coming along pretty well... I would have NEVER anticipated this much going into them!! What an awakening I have had these last 7 months!! :) So far all seems to be working out, and I hope you enjoyed our pictures!! :) Hope all is well with you and yours!! :)
