Returning from wedding-land (or getting married is lots of fun)

After a week of getting back to regular life post-wedding, we just got the pictures from our photographer (Kelly Lorenz) and we are THRILLED. She did such an amazing job of capturing the day, how we felt, and all the beauty around us. Looking at the pictures is like walking through the whole experience again (only this time without the nerves)! Here is a little sampling.

Also, a request. If you leave a comment on her blog post about us we can win a free print... will you do that for us, pretty please? Just comment here.

Wondering what these were for?

The wedding provided me with ample opportunity to make lists, one of my favorite pastimes.

The dress, in hiding.

One of my childhood friends has the most adorable little boy. He ran up to me about ten times during the wedding to tell me there were PRESENTS inside. I think he was very confused about why I didn't run in to open them right away.

We made a sign-in book out of a Kolo photo album, complete with a Polaroid Pogo printer so guests could print out a picture of themselves and stick it in the book (think old Polaroid instant camera meets digital camera meets stickers). We ended up with the most goofy and adorable pictures of our friends and family.

Yes, we read The Rabbit's Wedding by Garth Williams. Its my favorite.

Bruno's ring was, er, a little tight.

But I managed to get it on anyways.

My mom enlisted the help of our guests to make dozens of little paper cranes to hang all around. I loved being surrounded by little pieces of art made by our friends.

There was this really cool house made of trees next to the ceremony site that we took pictures in for awhile.

Then we took a walk in the woods to contemplate our married-ness (and take some more pictures).
