our wedding in photos: a prelude.

with today marking our one month anniversary of marriage, i wanted to share some photos from our wedding weekend. i've grappled with how to write about our wedding here on the blog, since i know just how many pictures, details, & memories i have to sift through & try to categorize in some fashion. 

since i have a seemingly endless supply of talented friends & family, there were photos upon photos taken with iphones, DSLRs, etc. and on top of all of that, shana & brit from shana burke photography were there to professionally capture some great images. with this overwhelming number of images came a lot of stress, trying to decide which images to share on my blog, which to keep private, etc. so i've decided to just share them as i see fit, with no real rhyme or reason. the photos in this post today are taken by me, my mom, my dad, or my sister. after shana gives me the disc with all the photos she & brit took, i plan to create a big ole wedding photos post, including the images my talented friend, lindsey, captured. i'm really excited to share those posts here, but they are a long time coming, as i want to make sure they're well put-together.

thus, i've decided to start off the coverage of our wedding with a little prelude, if you will. these images capture some of the quiet moments after we arrived at nottoway, before all the festivities began. the venue for our wedding was very significant for me, & i savored all the moments spent there for our wedding weekend. 

with all of that being said, let's jump into the photos!

and happy one month anniversary to my wonderful husband!

it's overwhelming - even now, one month later - to look back over these images & remember the feeling of anticipation i experienced just before the wedding. justin & i are so blessed to have had such a memorable wedding weekend. we couldn't have asked for more.

These photos are wonderful & captivating and they aren't even the professional ones!

Can't wait to see more! I'm a newlywed as well. Going through all of the photos, professional or not, was SO rewarding yet so exhausting.

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
