Wedding Teasers

This is my first post as a married woman! I can’t believe Gerald and I have been married for two weeks (tomorrow). The whole day went by so fast and it felt surreal to suddenly be married after all that. The weather was perfect–sunny and warm, though a little humid. We were even right on schedule (according to the very detailed wedding day schedule I created), though the ceremony did start a little late because there weren’t a lot of guests there yet. But then we got in the car to head to our reception site and the clock said 4:30pm and I thought the time was wrong. According to my schedule we were supposed to leave by 5:15 so that was a nice surprise. 🙂

I don’t have all my pictures back yet, but the wonderful Megan Chan of Megan Chan Photography posted some teasers from the day to share. Gerald and I were so impressed with Megan. She spent well over 12 overs photographing our wedding and she did a fantastic job. Megan was great to work with (though it helped with our comfort level that we’d done our engagement session with her before) and went above and beyond what was expected of her. We’re really pleased with the pictures so far and can’t wait to see the rest! So enjoy these few photos. You can find more on her blog.

 This next series of photos is by our friend, Tony Chan, who (sort of) was a second shooter for Megan. He did a fantastic job too!

We can’t wait to see the rest of our wedding photos and relive the day. But for now we’re just enjoying life as newlyweds. 🙂

Engagement Pics!

Gerald and I took engagement photos in Historic Long Grove a couple weeks ago and we just got the pictures back from our photographer, Megan Chan. So for your viewing pleasure, I’ll share some of them with you. We got nearly 170 pictures back (so I’m obviously not posting them all) and we took way more than that (she only sent us the good ones after she edited them).

It was a little awkward at the beginning for us, but engagement photos with your wedding photographer are a great way for you to get comfortable with him/her before the wedding day.

We have a bunch more pictures (including more with the pug :)), but I’m pretty happy with them. Of course there are pictures where I don’t think I look good and others where Gerald doesn’t think he looks good, so now we have the task of finding ones we both like and compromising on ones that one likes but the other doesn’t like as much. But these will be perfect for our slideshow and for the guestbook my cousin was making for us (and to put around the church on the wedding day).

Only 116 days to go!
