I love this photo because it shows of Ryan's personality. He has a funny personality and he isn't afraid to show it  off in pictures. I love that about him. :)

I feel like this was more of a model pic but I love that! 

After the ceremony we went outside to take pictures with people in the wedding and just Ryan and I. It took a good 2 hours to take the pictures. By the time I was done, I literally was sweating bullets underneath my dress (it was 98 degrees that day + Humidity!) haha. I think it was well worth it though because the pictures turned out amazing. 

My colors were light blue and gold. I didn't want my sister and best friend to wear the same dress (I have never really been fond of that) and they were actually happy about it too! They picked out lovely dresses and looked gorgeous. The groomsman and best man all had suits already so that part was easy! All we had to buy was three of the same tie. :) Ryan rented his tux from Men's Warehouse and was made by Vera Wang.

For my bridal bouquet I had white roses, white tulips and blue hydrangea. The girls bouquets had blue hydrangea with white roses. All of them were wrapped with burlap. So elegant and chic!

As for my dress (if you didn't read about it earlier) it was designed by Maggie Sottero and I added my own little personal touch with the blue ribbon (it originally had a pink ribbon with swarovski crystals). I always imagined myself being married in a ball gown. Mermaid gowns, vintage gowns, I didn't feel comfortable or myself in them. I did try them on and it just didn't do it for me. However, when I tried on this dress I knew it was it. It fits and compliments my figure perfectly.

I actually purchased my veil from Shoedazzle! You can still purchase it as well for only $45!

As for shoes, I wore flats with a bow accent. I am 5'8" and my husband is only a few inches taller than me as you can see so I didn't want to wear heels and be towering over him. I get my height from my father (he is 6' 2") hehe. :)

I went with a classic makeup look and accessories. I thought that it fit with the dress well. I was inspired by the Spring Dior Makeup Ad. You can view the picture, HERE. I was also happy that my curls lasted throughout most of the evening, as my curls typically don't last all day!

Did you have a photo session after your ceremony or did you go straight to the reception?

Hope you enjoyed these pictures! Don't forget to check out my ceremony pictures- HERE.
