getting ready







Before the wedding I got ready with my best woman Heather, friend (and wedding sax player extraordinaire) Clancy, friend and make-up artist Jill, and my parents. Friends and family were coming in and out of the room we were in at the Sylvia Hotel and it was all beautifully captured by the amazing photographers we had. I will definitely be sending some of these photos on to the wonderful Jill who did an amazing job with my make-up. She even curled my eyelashes for me when my hands were shaking too much to do it myself. And that's what friends are for. All photos by Elle & R.

  10. the pictures are all so beautiful! i love that you wore oxfords for your wedding, because that's so different from the normal, boring shoe!

    also, this is sort of unrelated, and sort of not. i did my cousin's wedding photography last month, and the pictures i took of her getting ready look TERRIBLE because there is so much crap in the room that has just been piled there for years. so anyway, your pictures are pretty, and it looks like you had a nice, crap-free room to get ready in!

  11. Nichole: Thanks so much. Jill would be happy to hear that, too! I loved my best woman's hair, too. More pics to come!

    Amanda: Thank you! xxx

    Danielle: It's weird how many things you have to think about (or don't have time to think about) when you're planning everything for the wedding. Like, getting ready in a place that photogenic or making sure that your parents know where to sit at the ceremony. In the end, everything works out because so much is a blur. I'd love to see some of the photos that you took of your cousin's wedding!
