In honor of my 1st month as a married woman. Here are some of my favorite wedding photos.
Photos taken by my pro photographer Neleh Sawsiengmongkol.
I color corrected and retouched the photos myself. I guess it pays to work in graphic desing & retouching.
My mom helping to make my bouquet.
My MOH, Cicely working her mojo with the flowers.
Getting my face done by make-up artist Samantha Nunez
Cicely’s attempts at tying my double-french bustle
What am I doing? I’m tying my own bustle.
Not a typical getting reading picture. Then again, I got ready in a storage closet.
Peeking out to see if it’s time to go.

Our guests waiting for the ceremony to begin.
I laugh when I’m nervous. My dad scowls when he’s hot.
Dad missed rehearsal. He missed his cue about giving me away and forgot to let go of my arm. It made for a good laugh.
My parents sharing a parasol with my MOH’s husband Gary. The rest of our guests roasting in the sun.
Ceremony begins. Whew! I’m so glad he gave up the darn parasol.
Exchanging Rings – First, my ring
Then, his ring

Sealed with a kiss
Off to the reception!
All the photos of our Grand Entrance came out blurry. We have this cute pic instead.
These are the goofy First Dance photos you get when the bride and groom pick
“Never, Never Gonna Give You Up” by Barry White as a First Dance Song.
No Dance Lessons required. We made it up as we went along.
Dad & Mom dancing. Everyone says I’m starting to look like my mom. Hmmm….

Doing what we do best… EAT
Best Man’s Speech by Lu.
Photos of our Maid of Honor’s speech didn’t turn out well. So, here’s a photo of my Dad’s rambling.
Like the expression on my face? I’m totally lost.
Cutting our cake with a knife twice the size of the cake!
BUSTED! Cicely and I being catty about one of my guests who was falling out of her dress.
