Finally Got Our Wedding Photos! (photo-heavy, obvs)


Today was definitely better than Monday...definitely.  I had to have an emergency bump removed from my lower lash line (don't worry, nothing serious or contagious) yesterday which kind of hurt.  If you've had one before, you know.  Towards the end of my workday I started to feel feverish, hot and cold flashes, migraine, nausea the whole shebang. Still not sure what was going on with me but for hours I felt like I was really coming down with something. I still feel off today, but much better than before. 

My optometrist told me that sometimes you can get one of those bumps from stress. I guess you can say I have been kind of stressed lately.  She also told me to start working out again. I didn't get why an eye doctor was telling me to exercise, but she said when you're stressed, your body produces cortisol and the best way to combat that is with endorphins which you can get from exercise. Well, that makes sense.  When your eye doctor tells you to work out, it must be pretty serious.  I had planned to start pilates again this week because my studio is having a special but I still feel too crummy to do much at all.

I don't have any fun fashion or beauty related things to blog but I do have something else fun to share...we FINALLY got our entire CD of wedding photos on Friday.  My H called me and said "guess what came in the mail?!" and I practically shrieked when he told me (OK so maybe I really did squeal a little.)

I spent the entire weekend making albums!  MyPublisher.com was having a 40% off sale which you HAVE to take advantage of when they do because when you're obsessed with photos like I am, you quickly reach a hefty price tag.  I think my album was about 45 pages and cost $75 or so with the discount.  I thought that was a wonderful deal.  We also have a professional album coming in designed by our photographer, but I wanted to make one with some of my favorites.

Yesterday also happened to be the 3rd anniversary of our engagement (not the wedding, just the engagement- our wedding was May 2009) so that was a nice little coincidence to have gotten out photos back so close to that date.

I get a lot of requests to post more wedding photos- and now I finally can- over a year later!  Hope you all enjoy. (Click to Enlarge)

  28. Ok I'm officially depressed.... I hope you know, that you are absolutely drop dead off-the-freaking-charts GORGEOUS... and you seriously look like a Victoria's Secret model. For real. I'm actually super jealous right now, and I don't give out compliments easily! lol Your wedding was beautiful, everything looks like perfection. But you seriously look amazing in every single picture, and I'm insanely jealous of you now. Your hair/makeup compliments you perfectly, and I hope I can look that amazing when I get married! (maybe I'll have your stylist/makeup artist shipped in? haha) Just thought you should know!! *Tara Ann, who occasionally lurks your blog* :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. You had the most beautiful wedding, so creative and different. I wish you would of gotten married before me so I could of stolen your ideas ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your photos are fantastic! I used MyPublisher for my album as well, and I loved it. We got 2 for the price of one! I truly enjoy reading you blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Loved all the details pictures - the black, white and pink are such an amazing colour combo. Love the pink pom poms on the guest boxes and the pink gummy bears with your rings.

    Your photos are so beautiful - you were such a gorgeous bride - and you really do resemble Sanra Bullock (I know you've mentioned that people have said that before).

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the pictures in front of the ivy wall at the Courtyard on St. James Place. I've never been to an event there but every time I see pictures, they're beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a gorgeous wedding! I love your wedding day look also. Your hair, makeup, dress was PERFECT!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Agreed!! Everything was amazing!! and you were stunning!!!& SO HAPPY!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a beautiful wedding! Seriously! Great pictures Veronika, I absolutely love the sweetheart neckline on your dress, and the way your hair was styled, and the site for your ceremony. This looks like it was a perfect day!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Where did you purchase the hanger that your dress was hanging on? You look gorg!! Love everything! xo

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the pictures! And btw, you have a very pretty natural smile! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great pictures. I can't believe you had to wait so long for your CD & album! I would have gone crazy.

    I love looking at other peoples' wedding pictures but it makes me kind of sad to think that there are so many things that I could have done differently. Don't get me wrong - I had an absolute blast at my wedding and really put a lot of effort into doing what I wanted and keeping it classy, but I just think that if we had given ourselves just a little more time (we had less than 10 months to plan) I would have done it a lot differently and I think that I kind of just went with first impulse on everything because I was worried about it all not being done in time.

  39. I think I got the dress hanger at Marshalls!

    ReplyDelete
  40. wow! your wedding was absolutely gorgeous! from the tables, to the flowers, to the candy buffet, to your gown - it looked perfect! my favorite picture is the one with your head in his lap - SO cute!

    ReplyDelete
  44. You looked gorgeous! We used the same champagne flutes at our wedding. I loved them!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ok so maybe I missed something here. Are these the first time that you got a disk of all your photos? 3 years later? If so that kinda blows my mind. Wow.

    They are gorgeous photos, I love all the details you incorporated into your wedding and I especially love the gummy bear ring photos. Was it hard to find pink gummy bears? I imagine it was!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Laura- our engagement was 3 years ago, not our wedding!

    It was over a year though before we got out wedding pics.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Veronika you look absolutely stunning!! What a beautiful wedding!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love the pictures! Your table arrangements were absolutely adorable!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, you looked perfect! I don't mean to sound stalkerish, but I saved a couple of your pictures on my computer so I could have them when I start searching for dresses. Um, when I eventually get engaged! Your dress, hair, and makeup is EXACTLY how I've always dreamed of mine looking like ;) Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  50. beautygirl you are so sweet! check out www.veronabrit.weebly.com to see my weding website- lots of great hair pics there too (celebs, etc!)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi Veronika! Just have to say thank you so much for sharing your photos. I'm in the middle of planning my wedding in San Antonio, Texas and I'm trying to take inspiration from anything and anyone. I just adore your wedding hairstyle and was thinking of incorporating extensions myself. If you don't mind me asking, what brand did you use? Did you have to get them professionally colored to match your hair? My hair color and highlights are almost identical to yours and I was a little worried about matching my hair with the extensions. Any advice would be so appreciated!! Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  52. hi jessica- i got them at a random ethnic hair store in my area they are human hair by a brand called "remy". I sewed in the clips myself and cut them to size myself. There are videos on youtube showing you how to do this.

    good luck :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love all of these pics V! You look incredible of course :) Perfect dress, perfect hair, perfect make-up, perfect flowers, perfect everything! All of the details were so beautiful and fun. Your mom's dress was really pretty too!
    Just curious, what took so long to get your pics? You were married well over a year ago!
    xoxo

  54. andi- most photogs won't release your picture CD to you unless they have completed your album and the album is in your possession. I am not sure why. It took me a year to finally get around to my album revisions and so i finally just asked that the CD be sent to me because I didn't want to wait anymore for the album. They sent it to me and my album is still being processed.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Beautiful! (I got married at the same venue. :) )

    ReplyDelete
  56. WOW...what beautiful photos! It must feel so nice to take a stroll down memory lane. LOVE your dress by the way...elegantly simple.

    Also wanted let you know that I gave you an award on my blog! Congrats :)

  58. You were a stunning bride. Your wedding looked right out of a fairy tale!

    ReplyDelete
  59. The photos look incredible! Simply stunning.

    Sorry to hear about your eye. A couple years ago my eye doctor told me the same thing for an irritation - get more exercise. it seemed so odd at the time. He also told me to take breaks from staring at a screen all day (e.g., look off and to the right for a minute every 30 minutes or so) and to vary my distance from computer screens and TV.

    Again, your photos are great!

    Phil

  60. thanks so much Phil, you are so sweet! My eye doc says that stress can manifest itself in mysterious ways and mine just happens to be through my eye! weird!

  67. Beautiful. I'm bet your bridesmaids were so happy you didn't put them in lilac-pistachio or some other ridiculous color, too! Congrats on the wedding.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Jenm- they actually picked out their own black cocktail dresses :) I was a nice bride when it came to that! I just wanted everyone to be happy.

    ReplyDelete

  71. Veronica, i just transfered to Houston for my job and ran across your blog (might have been while I was browsing the internet for a place to airbrush tan?).
    Anyways, I must say, I look forward to reading your blogs on a more constant basis -- So fun and refreshing.
    I actually wanted to comment on your wedding ring, is that the Hearts on Fire? If so, I have THE EXACT SAME ONE, no band though, I just never found anything perfect for such a stunning ring, so I just rock it solo.
    Love the wedding pics, BTW!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Ana, welcome to Houston! My wedding band is from Nazars and my enegagement ring is Tacori :) maybe we just have a similar style ring!

    Glad you found my blog :)
