These pictures are pretty standard when it comes to the photography for our wedding but I am very happy to have them. Both J and I have relatively small families (although J's seems much larger to me since mine is SO small) and we opted to do only pictures with our immediate family. Since we weren't seeing each other before the ceremony started this meant that we had lots of photos to take (Husband&Wife, family and wedding party) while our guests were enjoying cocktail hour and it also meant that most of these pictures would be indoors since the sun was setting early.
Side note, both J and I were feeling miserable at this point. I haven't mentioned it yet but two days before our wedding I started feeling sick as a dog! Seriously. I spent our entire rehearsal dinner sipping hot tea and trying not to spoil the fun with tears because of how horrible I felt. Thankfully most of our wedding day I felt good but after hours and hours of standing outside in Colorado-cold weather for pictures I wasn't feeling too hot. Add onto that J's pounding headache and our hungry/thirsty selves and we were a hot mess which explains some of the forced smiles. We were also pretty crabby and just wanted to be done with pictures which meant we probably didn't get as many as we would have liked. But alas, here's what we've got.

Sibling love // And my momma
(see what I mean about forced smiles. Yikes!)
