Our Wedding: The Bridal Party

So it's been almost 6 months since the wedding and I'm just sharing more pictures...oops! My sister-in-law was our main photographer and she did such an amazing job! Today I'm going to share the bridal party pictures with you!

All the pictures and portraits were done right outside the Chateau Cargill, which is the building where the ceremony and reception were. I just loooove the ivy and the stone! If I remember correctly, the weather wasn't so nice leading up to our big day, but it turned out to be gorgeous! We only had a few sprinkles while were getting family portraits done. It wasn't too cold and it wasn't too hot. Obviously, we were meant to get married that day ;)

Everyone showed up early on the day of the wedding to help set up and they stayed to take everything down. We had such an amazing time and I'm grateful for each and every one of them!

For the bridesmaids, I let them pick out their own dresses. They just had some guidelines, like it had to be black, knee length, not the shiny fabric, and no jewels on it. Then I asked them to wear nude shoes. 3 of them got nude pumps, while my maid of honor wore nude flats. I gifted them each a clutch made by the super duper awesome Jesse from AnyKind and stuffed them with wedding day emergency supplies. They also got a long gold necklace and some bangles to wear with their dresses! Jesse also sent me one as a surprise gift! I posted about them here.

The groomsmen rented their tuxes from Moore's and Rob gifted them with a flask and a cigar (which were tied together with twine)! You can see me and the bridesmaids with the cigars above. I'm glad we got that photo, haha!

My sister-in-law did such an amazing job with our wedding photos. It was her first time being a lead photographer at a wedding, but it looks like she's been doing it for ages! If you want to check out more of her work, click here!
