Our Wedding: Wedding Party & Bride/Groom Portraits

Matt and I are still in Costa Rica on our belated honeymoon (we return late on Friday night), so I thought it would be fun to share a few more wedding photos while we are away! If you missed our previous wedding recaps, please check those out first:

And now, for our post-ceremony pre-reception photo shoot with the whole wedding party! I love how the photos came out – all credit goes to Ben Powell Photography. Enjoy the photos! Our theme was FUN. :)

Check out Matt’s brother Drew, third from the right, in the photo below. Hilarious! We ran out of bouquets so he got a leaf instead. ;)

    We had one that was the guys holding me up and when I went to get lifted, I accidently punched my brother-in-law in the head…oopps, we are all laughing about it, so the picture turned out great!

    Absolutely wonderful pictures of all of you on a wonderful day. My wedding party was 43 years ago and it seems like it was just yesterday. I hope you have as many happy years together.
