Post bridezilla post


My favorite one of Joe and me, which is a hard pick because there are some great ones.

Four months later, and I’m finally able to take a look through all of the wedding pics Anna took for us.  It’s gonna take me a bit to put it all together in a photo album, and I’m trying to send everyone my fave of their pics, but it’s easier if I blast a bunch in here and if any of my friends/family would like one on the blog, just let me know and I’ll get it to you.  There are also many great ones not posted here because, well, I just can’t upload them all.

First off credit for all of these photos goes to Anna Purdy, who is based in Virginia.  If you’re interested in her work, check out her website here.

Secondly, if you’re looking to read a post about one of my great adventures, this one’s a big one for me and my family, but will probably bore those of you who don’t know us.  Hopefully, my next post will be of more interest to you.

Thirdly, I totally suck at posing for pics.  I am not a model wanna be in any way, shape or form.  Sooo kudos to Anna for getting so many lovely shots because I’m a hard one to photograph well.

Take for example this lovely pic, which through no fault of the photographer looks like I’m in phase one of zombie transformation.  How in the hell do you even get your eye to do that?


BUT, despite my whackadoodle facial expressions I got a nice assortment of 50+ year old glamour shots — ewww even have some cleavage/thigh shots (but those are Joe’s pics to keep).

My absolute favourites, though, are not of me in my shiny white robe.  They are the family and friend shots, and the ones of Joe and me.  I love all of us and what we have together, so I will never get tired of looking at our group shots!

Oh how I love my zany friends

Sadly, Brian, Joe’s friend since grade school, isn’t in any of these photos, but we’ll have shots of him in the wedding album!


aw the kids and us.  I’m so thankful for all the fun and love we have together!

And, of course, some of Joe and me

And the wedding party, which doesn’t include everyone who played a role in making our wedding weekend so fabulous…


Now all I have to do is wait two and a half months before I see my man again, and way too many months before I see the kids, but we’re always connected, and we’ll make the best of our time when we’re together.
