I’m so happy I got married when I did. Not just because John and I were both in a great place with our relationship and our professional lives, but because photography is JUST SO AWESOME these days.
I love that our amazing photographer, Katie Pritchard, was able to share a sneak peek with us the day after our wedding. I love that we had a full hashtag of Instagram photos that our guests contributed to during our celebration. I love that I have been able to easily blog and share different images that tell our story. I love that a simple picture conveyed a BIG message this past Christmas. And now, I love that I have finally printed out three of our favorite shots from the big day and hung them in our home.
On Friday afternoon (at rush hour, of course), I got the urge to jump in the car and drive over to IKEA to buy a few things for the house. While I was there, I picked up three white frames and a handful of other super necessary (unnecessary) items. What is it about impromptu IKEA trips that fill my heart with my delight?
When I got home, I sat down with John and we chose our three favorite photos from our wedding that we knew would look great grouped together as a series. Then, I resized them in Photoshop, printed them out on glossy photo paper using my plain old HP Photosmart printer, and popped them into the frames! I put John in charge of the hanging process, because eventually we would like to be able to move out of this place without having to pay for 4,000 holes in the wall ;)
Next step: design a wedding album!
