Getting Ready - The Bride, Part 2

Andy and Claire's Wedding Saturday 16

The bride has to look good, right? It's fortunate that there are no digital pictures of Carolyn and my wedding and the snapshots (we couldn't come close to affording a photographer) are buried in a box in the basement. Carolyn looked great but I looked like a complete dork - overweight, long scraggly hair and wearing an absurd yellow tuxedo jacket. Sort of a hippie bumblebee. 

My son and daughter-in-law both looked gorgeous. In the last picture they are all put together, standing on their front porch about to walk a couple of blocks to the ceremony in Logan Square.

The first and last pictures are Emily's. The middle two are mine.

Love her expression in the top shot! The reflections in his glasses are fantastic.

I love your account of your own wedding attire. These old photos are probably best forgotten in the box you mention :)

I'm enjoying this series tremendously. There's such a joyous spirit around!

Great reflection in Andy's glasses in the last picture.
