Default My wedding - part 4: taking pictures

My wedding - part 4: taking pictures

The first thing I saw when we went down to the lobby was the group of guys in their long tux coats looking very handsome, then my dad looking dashing in his military dress uniform. Then I saw Mark, and he and I beamed at each other. I wish we had had time for a private moment together before the pictures but there just wasn’t time.

First we took the group pictures. These were all done outside by the hotel pool, and on the beautiful staircase hung with greenery and lights. I can’t wait to see these pictures, I’m sure they turned out beautifully. The photographer has already posted about ten pictures on his website, but I have yet to see any of the others.

After the group pictures everyone left to get some food except Mark and me. We took pictures all around the old town – first in the courtyard in front of the Lightner Museum and the Casa Monica, where the trees and bushes were lit with thousands of Christmas lights. The photographer really wanted to get some slightly silly shots in, but Mark and I were insistent that the shots be elegant and posed. As the picture-taking progressed we eventually let him take some shots that are not my favorites, but it made him happy. His wife was his assistant, and they bickered often, greatly amusing Mark and me.

After taking pictures in front of the museum, we walked to the Bridge of Lions and took a few pictures there and on the waterfront. As we walked, people honked their horns, clapped for us, or just smiled and said, “Congratulations!” On the bridge I even saw a couple of people I know drive by. After we took pictures on the waterfront, we walked to the Cathedral and took some pictures in the courtyard before going inside and taking some pictures inside the church. We had planned to go into the church right away, but the 5:00 mass was just letting out so we walked past the crowd departing the church and talking to the priest to get to the courtyard at the side of the church. Someone asked the priest about the wedding, and he said, “I know we have one here at 7:00,” and I shouted, “That’s us!” More applause and congratulations. It was our day and I was determined to enjoy all this attention! After the pictures in the courtyard we went into the church and took several pictures there. Around 6:30 the photographer left and we decided it was time to hide before the ceremony. My mom, dad, grandmother, aunt, Margaux, and I went into a room by the gift shop to await the start of the ceremony.

Some of the professional pictures:











You can see more at the photographer's website. I'm not thrilled with them, but I'm pretty sure there are others that I'll love, I just have to wait for the proofs.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Thanks! The last picture is on the bridge... I'm disappointed that you can't see all the lights from Nights of Lights. It was gorgeous.

Cheers,
Michelle B.
