our wedding: getting ready & first look.

It’s so wild to think that our wedding was nearly three months ago. It feels like an eternity and just yesterday, all at the same time. Because we had a long engagement, the weeks leading up to the big day were really surreal and exciting with the anticipation. Wedding planning was full of stops and starts – a flurry of getting stuff done, then long periods of nothing to do. Suddenly it was October, and go-time!

Since we got into town Thursday, we got to spend time with people as they trickled in, which was wonderful. It really was like a four day desert vacation that we got to bring all of our favorite people on.

My girls and I got ready in my suite, then D and I met up for our first look before family photos and go-time.
