Wed-cap: Just the Two of Us

After we were done with the formal shots and we released the rest of the wedding party to the cocktail hour, the photographers took us outside for pictures of just Kristian and I around the property. Fortunately by that point it was only lightly sprinkling so it didn't hinder our outdoor shots. In fact if anything I think the rain added to them. The trees were extra green, the ground was wet and shiny and of course having the pink umbrella was the icing on the cake.

Before we started with the pictures my dress needed to be bustled so that it wouldn't get ruined dragging the ground. Unfortunately by the time we realized it needed to be bustled everyone had disappeared. Have no fear because Kristian came to my rescue and with only minimal guidance from me was able to figure out the bustle on my dress. The photographers thought it was hysterical and couldn't resist getting a picture of it, after all it's not every wedding where the husband bustles the dress.

I still can't get over the pink umbrella. These are just so beautiful and artsy and creative. Love the emotion in them. Funny that your girls abandoned you before the bustle...I think it may have been intentional ;)

They do say that it is good for it to rain right before outdoor ceremonies or pictures because it leaves everything looking crisper, cleaner and greener :)

Very beautiful! I agree with the pink umbrella. Love the color against the landscape.

Rob never would have been able to do my bustle. It had 6 hooks and needed to be repleated. I think it took 2 people.

I don't know how you're not wallpapering your house with all these photos. They all look fantastic.

My husband would have never figured out my bustle...I think there were 7 ties all underneath, my MOH had to come to my last fitting just to learn how to do it...haha!

I love the pink umbrella shots! I think they may be some of my faves!

I LOVE that he bustled the gown for you! What an awesome memory. And the umbrella really made for some great shots! There definitely were a lot of positives to the rain in your case, including having the beautiful indoor ceremony and getting these great pictures!

Wow, those are really amazing pictures. You had a great photographer (it helps that you're a handsome couple too, hehe). I'm a little less worried about rain for my outdoor shots now that I see how nice they can look :)
