My Wedding Veil
I met with our wedding photographer last night! Back in April I mentioned that we had booked him. We did this without meeting him first because our wedding date was already booked with several photographers and I loved this guy’s work and didn’t want to lose the opportunity to have him work with us. Anyway, last night my mom and I met with him and absolutely LOVED him!
He is such an incredibly nice and down to earth guy. He seems totally passionate about what he does and wants to devote as much time to the wedding as he can- in fact he says he only books about 15 weddings a year so he can give them the attention he thinks they deserve! It was great to look at sample books and pictures he’s already taken. As I knew from looking at his blog and website, the photos are exactly what I’m looking for – fun, creative, and absolutely stunning. And Chris and I are going to get engagement pictures done with him…I’m sooo excited :D. If you’re interested, you can check out some of his pictures on his website – Ben Barnes Photography
Speaking of wedding things…I tried my veil on last night and snapped a few pics for you! I purchased my veil the day I got my wedding dress, but it was from England and had to be ordered. It came in while I was in Boston, so it’s been at home waiting for me. I actually sort of forgot about it until the meeting last night which sparked the wedding fever so I busted it out of the package as soon as I got home.
I love my veil! I went with something a bit fancier and it compliments my dress wonderfully. There are tiny Swarovski crystals all around it as well!
I figure I can post this picture because it’s not my dress and that’s what I want to be a surprise for people, especially Chris :).
Here’s a side view:
I mean it doesn’t look that great with my black and white t-shirt and jean shorts haha…but I still love it!
And here is a close-up of some of the crystals:
Eeee trying on my veil and meeting with the photographer just makes me so excited to get back into planning mode :D. I know it’s more than a year away, but I can’t wait til the day I get to walk down the aisle and become Chris’s wife! ❤
