American Marriage


This was my favorite picture from my wedding.  My professional wedding photographer didn't take it, actually my dad did and then my cousin Sarah printed it for me on canvas. This is my perfect wedding day memory.
My brother was married just last Saturday.  Its really crazy for me since my little brother was born on my 12th birthday.  The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and romantic! His wife is now my sister and I love her just as if she was my blood sister.
Above is a shot of me and my groomsman (the last time I saw this young man was before he hit puberty) And just above is my boy as the ring bearer. He doesn't actually need glasses, he just likes to wear play glasses to look studious. He wore his tie and tux shoes to school today, over his tee shirt, before we have to return them to the renal company.  Accessorizing already.

My sister, my dad and me during the father and daughters dance.  There were several cameras going off at once.  I am sure there will be hundreds of pictures flooding in over the next few weeks from guests all over the place.  I apologize for not getting more shots of the dress, but I will be wearing it styled much differently soon.

And interesting tidbit: my brother and his new wife have been included in a new documentary being released this fall, I believe called American Marriage.  They were interviewed before the wedding and the entire affair was filmed.  They represent the youngest couples who marry in the documentary.  Young, romantic love. You can see a trailer for the film by checking out the website.

The trailers to the documentary are great, I will have to wait patiently for it to come out.... The dress seems like a wonderful addition to a wardrobe, already wondering what you will style it up to look like, can't wait!

Your brother and his wife look beautiful! Congratulations to them!

I love your dress, it's so simple and versatile. Not your typical "only-wear-once" bridesmaid dress.

Your little boy looks adorable! And I absolutely love the photo from your wedding!

It's funny that you said you haven't seen your groomsman since before he hit puberty. Looking at him, it doesn't look like that was all that long ago! He looks really young!

interesting concept - seems like that MTV show "engaged and underage". i'd like to see it.

Melissa said...

You are breathtaking in that dress! It's fabulous and I can't wait to see what other styles you come up with for it.

Your son in those glasses is just precious! So cute!!! Although he'd probably prefer the word handsome. Eh. Boys. :)

wow, thank you for posting that link to the new documentary. Also, amazing that your family gets to be a part of it! Congrats to your brother and your new sister in law for tie the knot!! I am a fledgling event/wedding planner and the ideas behind marriage have always fascinated me!
You looked amazing both in your own wedding photo and in your brother's wedding photos!

P.S. you have inspired me greatly. Because of you, I have started my own blog...two entries down, a number more to go. mylilydarling.blogspot.com

Have an amazing day!

Your son is SO CUTE!! I love that he already like dressing up in a suit - you must be raising him right, hahaha. I think you were right about the bridesmaid dress - it's actually wearable. Who knew?
