an iPhone wedding recap: the morning of

Sunday, November 29, 2015

Um, who else can't believe it's almost December? It has been almost two whole months since Abe and I got married and we should be getting our professional wedding photos back very soon! Until then I'm going to continue to share some of the photos from our wedding day that were taken on our iPhones. 

That morning the girls and I woke up to my mom making coffee and laying out some breakfast options in the kitchen. We all came downstairs in our leggings and adorable monogrammed button downs (one of the bridesmaids gifts that I gave them)! Around 9 the hair girls arrived at the house and started making us look fab! 

One of my favorite parts of the morning was getting my makeup done. I didn't hire makeup girls but instead had each of my super talented bridesmaids help me. Megan was a contour/eyebrow genius and Lindy made my eyes looks super gorgeous. After all the hair and makeup was done, my photographer took me upstairs to get some shots of me putting on my dress.


Literally the prettiest I have ever felt in my entire life.

After we got lots of good pictures, it was first look time. Because it had been raining on and off all morning our photographer decided that we should get me settled somewhere outside and then have Abe come to me (instead of the other way around). We knew we wanted this time just for us so we made my family and our wedding party stay inside. Although this wasn't a popular choice, it made the first look that much more special. As Abe walked up behind me, our photographer was counting down "He's 20 feet away....10 feet... right behind you" and I couldn't help but start to cry from nerves/excitement. We hugged and smiled and Abe told me my dress was exactly what he'd was perfect! 

Luckily the rain held off and we were able to take lots of photos of just us and some with our bridal party before it started drizzling again. After all the photos were taken there was nothing else to do but wait for the ceremony and soak in the day.  We sat in the living room and got warm by the fireplace. My girls and I laughed and talked and had coffee...carefully.

Gimmie caffeine.

Abe and his groomsmen and brothers took some photos in the sunroom. 


It was the perfect morning and kickoff to the wedding day. My next post will be about the ceremony and reception (I promise not to take weeks to write that one)! I also CAN NOT wait to share a wedding video that my cousins put together for us. I literally have watched it (and cried) a million times.
