Wedding Preperation

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Finally! I'm so excited to be sharing photos from our wedding with you. Most of these photos were taken by our wedding photographers, all of whom are professionals who are family friends, and who took time out of their busy summers to shoot for us. Several though (the sunglasses photo below, as well as all the photographs in the second collage), were taken by my dear friend and bridesmaid Sarah Kennett-Cromwell (who ALSO happens to be a  professional wedding photographer out of Missoula. Check her out MT brides). So a BIG, HUGE thanks to her, and to Scott Horton, Vicki Shapney and Chris Miller!

We chose to go with a retro inspired wedding, which meant big attitude, BIG hair and EVEN BIGGER petticoats! Luckily, my girls were game about getting ready quite early in the morning and liked (or at least were gracious enough to pretend to like. I'm not sure which) their beehives. I won't talk about what we were all wearing till tomorrow, when you can see it better- but I will say when considering the dress we didn't think about one important thing. How I was going to get into or out of it with hair and make-up done? In the end, I had to step into it and put the petticoat on last. Awkward! But made us all laugh.

  7. How fun to see a behind the scenes getting ready post Kristian!! It looks like you had a lot of fun getting ready with all your gal friends. I love the shot w/ the shades and especially the picture of you and your sister laughing, or at least I think it’s your sis from past posts and because you two look so much alike with your big laughs! Such a sweet post.

  13. Of course I love the beehive! Wish I could do it all the time :)
    Your photographers were so cute. I remember when they took your dress and shoes and run across with street with mischievous grins.

    1. Haha- well, kind of! It is the sort of all purpose meeting room that I think doubles as the church's library too.
