Final Wedding Photos - My Bridal Portraits

I got the nicest comments on my thirtieth birthday post yesterday. It really made my day!
These are the last of my wedding photos to share. I had my bridal portraits done in Charleston in March. I took a day of annual leave and headed down to Charleston with my Mom. We got lunch from Groucho's before we left, and it was a Friday which meant I had a three day weekend. Overall a great day!
I used this as my 24x16 to display at the wedding. My husband had never seen a bridal portrait at a wedding before, and thinks the whole concept is really weird.
This is on Lagare St. I had to change in a small changing tent on the street, and my Mom had a time getting me laced into my dress.

I used this pose for our newspaper announcement. This was at the Battery in Charleston. 

This was a lot of fun because people were walking and driving by and had many sweet well wishes. One man walked by with his kids, who were about my age or a little younger, and hit on my Mom!
Can I also say I wish my hair and makeup looked like this everyday?
TGIF! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.


  1. i think bridals are a southern thing, we hold on to our traditions hard core :) i had a blast doing mine so glad we did them

  2. love love love these photos of you. Haha I think Meredith is right, must be a southern thing because I don't think any of my friends have done that

  3. Love your pictures! You are stunning!! Bridals are a Southern thing. My husband is from VA and still thought it was weird to have a big picture at the wedding.
    here's a post on my bridal and some wedding pix too. Nothing over the top for sure. :)

  4. I just had a discussion with my mom about bridal portraits, because I had no idea that they are a southern thing!! I've never been to a wedding where there wasn't a bridal portrait at the reception! Yours are absolutely gorgeous!

  5. Oh my goodness! I haven't blogged in years. I don't even know if you'll remember me, Gigi from Midnight Macaroons. I happened to be cleaning and came upon some old blogging things. Thought I'd log in for fun and thought of your blog. I can't believe I've missed out on so much. You got MARRIED!!! I'm so thrilled for you. You're magazine worthy beautiful bride. Again, I can't express how happy I am for you. This totally makes me want to go back to blogging. I will post something on my blog tomorrow with updates. Again, so happy for you. XOXO Gigi
