The Wedding: Getting Ready
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday–mine was spent in Florida with Joe and his family, and we managed to pack a lot of shopping, sightseeing, drinking, eating, and catching up in four days. I’m not quite ready to accept that Christmas is around the corner, but we put up our tree tonight when we got back to Brooklyn and listened to holiday music while we hung the ornaments. How are you getting in the holiday spirit?
One of the things I was most thankful for this year was getting married to my best friend and having the most beautiful wedding I could ever hope for. As promised, I want to share some of the professional photos we had taken that day here on the blog. I plan on splitting them up and presenting them once a week for the next few weeks, each week focusing on a different aspect of the wedding.
This week, I’m going to share a few photos from getting ready. I got dressed in my room at the inn on the property of the farm where we were married (Mt. Hope Farm in Bristol, RI).
My dress, which I purchased as a sample from the White Gown in DUMBO, Brooklyn
My J. Crew wedding shoes….which I subsequently left in a hotel room in Sacramento just a few weeks later
My sister and maid of honor zips me in
Tiffany pearl bracelet (birthday gift from my family), my engagement ring, and my great aunt’s 50th wedding anniversary ring, a gift my great uncle gave me for the wedding
One of my favorite things about this dress was the yellow beading details on the bodice
My other favorite thing was the back
Fixing my hair
And of course, my most essential accessory–a dashing husband. He’s wearing a custom-made suit, Thomas Pink shirt and tie, and Hugo Boss shoes.
Stay tuned for more wedding photos over the next few weeks!
