This week Natalie over at Mommy of a Monster and Twins is having a great link up. She asked everyone to post their favorite wedding photo(s). So thank you very much, I'll gladly take that opportunity!
I got married to the hubster just over 9 years ago now and at that time there wasn't a whole lot of digital options. Thus, we have our pictures in an album and gritty scanned photos to share. I did re-scan these first two this morning because the scanner I had back then was even worse! I had some fun playing around with the soften effect and focal zoom though. Two of my favorites are these.
We had just said "I do", gave each other a smooch-a-roo and were walking down the aisle to...hmmm...I think it was "Walking on Sunshine". We were two newlyweds, very happy and very much in love. And I think that is pretty obvious in these two photos.
Hootin' and hollerin' is what it looks like. That second picture looks funky. We were walking up the stairs. It looks like we're kneeling or we're super short. But no, he's helping me juggle that heavy dress up the stairs!
OK, now to another favorite photo of the day. This is me and my dad as he's walking me down the aisle.
I'm obviously watching my feet as we're heading down the stairs. But then, guess what? I managed to get the train of my dress snagged on the wooden deck - enough so that it stopped us in our tracks. Holy smokes! No, actually, I think this quiet, sophisticated, demure, blushing bride said the big ol' *F* word right there on the white aisle in my white dress with my dad on my arm and my husband proudly watching me. Let's not forget the dainty grandmothers sitting right there to bear witness to this disastrous moment!
To tell you the honest to goodness truth, I don't remember that at all. It's like one of those terrible memories that you just block out on purpose and can never recall. If I ever need to relive that moment - my dad still has his memory.

Also, I'm linking up with Lovelinks #20 because as Erica puts it so perfectly, "August on a blog has become August in downtown Detroit: no one around but panhandlers and the occasional chickenhead". I guess I'm one of those occasional chickenheads!
