Married!

Hi ladies--just wanted to AW my photographer's (Tasha Schalk of Redwall Photography) sneak peek from my wedding!

and our red carpet pictures from our cocktail hour by Kathleen Thame (in her 2011 Wedding Favorites album):

We had a fantastic day, despite the gray skies and rain, I was pretty calm for the most part, but I think it was a huge emotional overload because I could hardly eat or drink at the reception. My dad got really emotional, which surprised me because he is really easy going, and he made me choke up walking down the aisle. My husband and I didn't do a first look, and I really loved the moment our eyes met when I walked down the aisle. I had such a great  day w/my bridesmaids, and later with tons of our friends and family.

I'll get myself together and write vendor reviews, but in the mean time I posted all of our vendors up there in the sticky so please feel free to ask me if you have questions about them. I'm so grateful to all of the married Chicago knotties who gave me lots of great suggestions on all most all of our vendors.

    YAY!!!  Congratulations!  You looked beautiful and all of your pictures look amazing.  Glad to hear your wedding was wonderful!  And I teared up reading about your dad...my dad is the same way and I'm nervous that he'll get emotional, because I'll lose it if he does!  Can't wait to read all of your reviews.  Thanks again so much for all your help throughout my planning process.  Hope you stick around and check in on the board from time to time!

    Congrats!! You really do look gorgeous!!!

    Isn't it funny how the emotion catches up to you?  Pre-wedding I read about all of these brides who didn't eat at the reception and I swore I wouldn't be one of them.  But by the time the food was served, I was kinda of like shaking with excitement and didn't/couldn't eat a thing!  Thank goodness we served pizza at the end of the reception.  I totally chowed down then!

    Thanks ladies!

    @HZ--I swore the same thing. I was fine leading up to the wedding minus not being able to sleep much because I was anxious that everything was going to go well, but I ate in the morning and my BM's made me eat before we got to the church so I wasn't famished when we were at the church. I was so bummed I had no appetite because the food was so good at our tasting I wanted to eat it!

    @TEA--I will most definitly be here and there on the board :)

    @arrabelle--you will love Tasha (which I'm sure you do already if you booked her!), we got so many compliments on our engagement pictures and I'm sure our wedding pictures will be equally fantastic--I love our sneak peek already so I'm so excited to see the rest!
