A few of my favorite shots from our bridal session with J. Taylor Photography.
I have some funny and frustrating memories from this shoot. It was one of those hellish wedding days--my flowers were completely different from what I ordered, I was mad at how my dress looked (rips and wrinkles galore which led me to do some some *ahem* "altering") and overall stress about being, well, a bride. Without delving into all the issues of a not-so-skinny girl, I was pretty petrified of this part about my wedding. I don't see people who look like me on wedding blogs or in magazines. I'd never really envisioned myself in a white dress standing next to somebody and I was nervous about how I looked and how I'd even fit the role.
But I had a few moments where I stepped out of myself and thought, "This is my time. This is my turn. I'm getting my bridals taken right now...I'm a bride." And I had my groom there with me. And while I still had my frustrations about this or that, I vividly remember how much fun I had with Ian that day. He made me laugh and he grabbed my butt and he kissed my cheek. He thought I was pretty and he was happy I was his bride. That's really all I needed to know.
