Our Wedding Photos are SOOOOO Boring…

…are definitely not words that you will ever hear come out of my mouth. For as much heartache (and toe ache) that we went through the weeks, days and even minutes before – we took all that negative energy and poured as much positivity and fun into our wedding ceremony and the ensuing photos. 

I am so happy that our fantastic photographers (and friends) Tran and Kristina of KTPhotography were able to capture all the crazy ideas I kept throwing at them, and all of the amazing moments I didn’t.

While the wedding mishaps will slowly fade, we will always be able to smile at and enjoy these. I hope you do too!

The Ceremony 


I get stage fright. I cry at weddings. I cry at TV commercials. In an effort to help me get through my vows without being a sobbing mess, we asked our guests to wear mustaches and aviator sunglasses. It totally worked. Well kinda. But it certainly did make me smile (and that’s all that really matters, right?)

Wait. Is that the Groom wiping a tear from his eye!??!

Ok, so the ring was a bit tight and I might have licked his finger to get it on.

The Bridal Party

I had to decline an invitation to the Red Carpet Premiere of Thor: Dark World because I was on a plane headed to the Dominican Republic for my wedding. So in honor of Thor, we took this fun picture!

I love this one. I photoshopped in the Giant Octopus.

This one reminds me of a bunch of 3 year olds. No one is looking at the camera and shenanigans abound.

    Your wedding photos make me want to go back and re-do ours. Ours are BORING!!! I love yours and really enjoyed looking at them. I guess if you had to miss Thor’s Red Carpet event, this was a good reason. :) Congrats to you both!

    You’re right those are boring;) No really…love them! The one where you and the bridal party are throwing the umbrella up is one of my favorites! I wish I would have thought of this for our wedding, so cute!

      haha Jamie. That one was actually such a #fail. Didn’t really think about how hard it is to try to throw an open umbrella – doesn’t really work! LOL

We need to look up that cruise where you take your motorcycle on board with you! (I saw hundreds of them get off a ship in Bermuda – it was AWESOME!)
