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.
