After the ceremony and before dinner our guest were encouraged to view the museum and/or enjoy the cocktail hour.
Jen and I posed for a whole slew of family photos and then wandered the museum, both inside and out, to take more pictures of just the two of us.
Aside from the one moment where I tripped on my dress going up a flight of stairs, this part was really fun. And yes you read that correctly; on my wedding day, followed by my new wife, three photographers and in plain view of half a dozen friends I tripped on my wedding dress and fell up a couple of stairs. Don’t worry, nothing was damaged and we all got a good laugh out of it. So go ahead, you can laugh a little too.
This next picture is one of my favorites. These two pieces of art went in two weeks before our wedding and they were fabulous. Really fun, and they matched our dresses! I realize that they are made out of newspaper and are shorter then our dresses. but they have pink accents and are hand made! See, they’re just like ours.
Here I am going to give you a piece of scheduling advice. Plan on starting your ceremony late. The invitation said that the wedding would start at 5:00 PM. We started 5:15 PM. All of my theater experience completely prepared me for the fact that people would not show up on time and that you needed to plan on starting the show late. I planned for a 5:20 start, so we technically started 5 minutes early, but this “late start” allowed our fashionably late guests a chance to arrive before we started and meant that the rest of our day wasn’t running behind as a result. We had the full hour to take care of all the photos we needed and wanted to get done.
