The Carn-Armitano Wedding: Part 2
Here we are! Part 2!
For our wedding, Andrew and I (with the help of our wedding planner and photographer) decided to do photos before our 6 pm ceremony. We love the way they turned out and I'm glad we did them in the daytime instead of after our ceremony- we got to the reception faster and the lighting is gorgeous.
All of the bridesmaids + Andrew's groomslady before photos! Still obsessed with the beautiful home we got ready in and stayed in for the weekend.
Our makeup artist was great and her partner for the day did a great job, too. I can honestly say they did a great job of getting 15 people ready in a couple of hours! (If you are in SC and you'd like Jessica's contact info, please reach out! She doesn't currently have a website, but she is awesome and her pricing is too.)
Dad matched the groomsmen and bridesmen, but wore a tie like Andrew. It has feathers! I loved it.
Okay, so-- this is our first look!
We decided to do start the pictures at the house and have the bus pick us up from there. Andrew's face is so sweet! And per usual, I am laughing.
I've always known I would have a few boys in my wedding, and it was lucky that I met Andrew-- he had two special ladies he wanted in his! I loved that all of the girls wore different colors (which was a logistical nightmare when it came to ordering, but was so worth it!), and we had two military uniforms and our bagpiper in the mix! The bagpiper was also a close friend of Andrew's. Another thing you may notice- we passed on boutonnieres for most of the groom's party and my three bridesmen. It was a small way to save quite a bit of money for something I've seen get destroyed at every other wedding I've been to! We did bridesmaid bouquets, but reused them at the reception. I'm into it!
Last, we did a few couple portraits, and then we went to get married! We couldn't have been luckier with the weather or the sunshine. It was perfect! (And who knew it would be in February!?)
Last post to come soon! xx
