And nearly a year later…THE PICTURES!

Ok, so it took me a minute. But I’m finally prepared to share some of our wedding pictures. Because they are AWESOME.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Before I share the link to the rest of the pics, let me tell you why these were so important and why it took me so long to even look at them. Something I learned, that I will now share with you is this: it is virtually impossible to THROW a major event and ATTEND a major event at the same time.  So while everyone told me our wedding was one of the best they’d ever been to, I had to see the pictures to understand their experience. Because my memories of that night are more along the logistical/operational end of the neurotic disaster spectrum.

Richie wanted to pour through the photos immediately but I just couldn’t.  I needed a way to make it more special, somehow, before I could bring myself to even take a peek.  So he planned date for us- fondue & wine- we brought the laptop & with a bottle of champagne in hand, we looked through them.

And I bawled.  And I completely fell in love with every single one.  And all at once, I knew the crazy was worth it.

A HUGE thank you to Don Hwang, our amazing photographer for the rest of these pictures:  http://richierachelwedding.shutterfly.com/

  1. Awesome photos, Rachel! And it’s a real treat to relive the wedding through them. Hugs.

  2. Beautifully written and beautiful, artistic photographs!

    Yes, as the person IN the frame, it must have been hard to have viewed from the outside looking in, as well as being the person who everyone was focussing on that evening. But, and as almost everyone vouches for, myself included, it was an incredible evening and a flawless wedding – and in terms of aesthetics alone, it was akin to entering a Renoir or Vermeer painting (for the women), splashed with a dose of Scorsese’s style (at least for the men).
    You and Richie are such a wonderful couple, and thank you for letting me be part of that amazing evening.
    – Maddy
