Together at Last: Portraits with Family and Friends

We’re still waiting on our Internet over here, so in the meantime I’m going to continue posting photos from our wedding. Yeah, the wedding that happened almost two years ago! Better late than never, right?

This post is part of my wedding recap series. Missed something and want to catch up? Click here for links to past “Together at Last” posts.

We had very little time between the ceremony and reception for photos, so we made use of the hour and took pictures with our family and bridal party. 

Despite a lack of time, there’s always room for bunny ears! 

The new family:

My family with my new husband included:

Me and my lovely grandma!

Me with my husband’s side of the family!

The hubs and his grandma:

 My husband and his sister:

And one with my husband and his family:

After we posed with the family, it was time to take pictures with our dear friends! We already took some with just the girls and just the ladies, but now it was time for the whole group! We started out in the now-empty chapel…

…and then moved outside. 

Dear future brides, I haven’t talked about this yet, but now is a good time as any. Plan out more time than you think is necessary for photos with your bridal party and you and your husband. We planned out an hour between the ceremony and reception to take photos and I would give anything to go back now and add more time. Your guests can wait. Yeah, they may complain, but what kind of a wedding would it be if the reception started on time? Your guests will be fine, I promise!

  1. I would give anything to redo all my wedding photos. They are all very boring and posed and no creativity at ALL. I love yours though! You look radiant!

  2. Cute! Love the candid shots. I second Monica above. I wish I could have a redo on the wedding photos. Actually, the whole wedding if I could. Almost 5 years later and my tastes have completely changed! The creativity level of a 20 year old bride is so much different than a 25 year old one. LOL. I was also 32lbs heavier in all my wedding photos. Another reason I almost can't stand looking at them. 🙁 Yours are fabulous though! Color me jealous!

  3. I wish I had taken your advice! It rained and I was running late, and we had to cut pictures short when the guests started to arrive. Oh well! Your photos are beautiful though!

    Thanks for linking up!
