We Re-took Our Wedding Photos

My dad and my sister made it really clear they thought this was a really weird thing to do, but I really wanted to retake our wedding photos! We got married 6 years ago, and we hired a friend of the family photographer to take our wedding pictures. He did a good job documenting the day. But, there were maybe 2 or 3 portraits of Blake and I that I actually loved. Most of them were really awkwardly posed or photoshopped to death. 

So it may have been a weird thing to do, but I'm so so happy we did it! Chabeli has taken our family photos before and did an amazing job once again with these pictures. I wore my original dress, but had to do my hair a bit differently because it's much shorter now. Blake on the other hand had a completely different outfit on. On our wedding day he wore a rather ill fitting tux, but now he's in his trusty navy suit. Our friend Tammy made us a bouquet and boutonniere. I did my own makeup and my sister did my hair! I only wish I did my own makeup on our wedding day-I may have actually looked like myself! 
















So it was really super hard for me not to post every single picture! I love them all. The hardest part will be deciding which ones to get prints of! You can see more of our pictures here or here.

Me: 
Dress by David's Bridal (I'm pretty sure it's one of their $99 ones now! A little upsetting since it was a lot more than that in 2010) 
Pearls: Helzberg (A gift from Blake)
Hair Comb: Amazon

Blake: 
Suit by Men's Warehouse
Tie: J Crew
Pocket Square: Mark and Graham 
Shoes: Jos A Bank
Star Wars Cufflinks: Ebay

  2. It's the perfect place for a reception -- before or after the event, with plenty of space for people to move around. The Los Angeles wedding venues are large with room for plenty of tables. There is a stage to the right side of the room, where your presenters can be seen or the bride and groom can take their vows.
