Here we are and it is another Wednesday. Last week, I showcased some of our wedding photos for Wordless Wednesday. Mainly, I put together some of the photos from before, during and right after our wedding mass (we are Roman Catholic and had a high mass).
This week, as we are indeed getting that much closer to Valentine’s Day, I wanted to show my viewers a bit more from our wedding, but instead of from the actual mass, I am displaying some of the photos from our wedding reception, which actually was held at Leonard’s of Great Neck (in New York).My Nana
The above picture was of me and my grandmother. This was my Nana and I absolutely love this picture, because I am so very grateful that I had her in my life for as many years as I did and that she was present at our wedding. She was thrilled for us and adored Kevin. Unfortunately, my Nana passed away, three years ago on February 3rd. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss, but this photo is one that I kept close to my heart now that she is no longer with us.So Serious!!
Our photographer took a group of pictures of us in the gardens at our reception hall, because it was a beautiful summer afternoon and evening, too. Yes, we got sunshine and 85 degrees!! I just love how we are so in the moment here, as well as the camera coloring and effects used for this shot.
Taken during our cocktail hour, we told to pose on the floor in our finest and look like we were lounging. Somehow the photographer accomplished what he was aiming for even if I had this huge gown to somehow maneuver. Yes, by this point of the day, I could not wait to be able to bustle my train on my wedding gown. As much as I loved this dress, the train after hours of trying to walk and carry it had lost its appeal. Once these pictures were taken, I finally was able to indeed bustle that train. God I was never so happy in my life!!Dancing and Partying the Night Away!!
Our maitre’d asked Kevin at one point, “Isn’t your bride going to eat?” Well, between being the hostess by greeting all my guests and dancing the night away, I never did get to enjoy the food. Thanks god for our honeymoon, where we ate and drank like royalty. The above photo though shows us both getting our groove on!!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane from over seven years ago. I promise to have more Flashback photos in the coming weeks too. So stay tuned each Wednesday as I continue with some more photos from our past.
Also, don’t forget to check out my awesome friend, Cyndi’s blog, Pictimilitude, who started this concept of Wordless or Word-ful Wednesdays.
