Wedding Pictures!!!

Guess what, guys—I’m finally posting my wedding pictures. Just a few. It was the best day ever. I loved my dress, I loved my shoes, I loved my boyfriend/husband, my bridesmaids, my parents… a whole lotta love. Hope you like the pics as much as I liked getting married! Well, you probably won’t like them THAT much. Weddings are a beautiful thing. Maybe a little cheesy, but all that love in the air—it’s freaking awesome!!

dress1Oh, and as a comparison, here is what the original dress looked like, when I bought it. It’s made by Melissa Sweet. It’s cute, but I LOVE my dress and the alterations we made—I had it made about 6 inches shorter, and changed the tulle from white to pink. I look way better, right? Sorry, don’t mean to toot my own horn! hehe.

My best friend, Amy, got ordained online and performed our marriage ceremony. She did a great job—she only cried a teeny bit in the beginning, but then she really pulled her act together and did a great job. Yay Reverend Amy!Amy

Holy sh*t! We’re married. The ceremony lasted for, like, 2 seconds! (maybe 15 or 20 minutes but it felt short). It all felt like such a blur. Thank god for the pictures!

My special “Beverly Hills 90210” style group photo. The wedding photographer didn’t know what the hell I was talking about, but I insisted on my 90210 shot.

Our cake toppers. Hand sculpted by my dad, these zombie Alex and zombie Andy figurines are an homage to our film company, Potato Riot Films.

And the group shot. This is a signature shot that our wedding photographer always does. We loved it. That’s what 120 people look like all together. Pretty fancy, eh?

Another pic of my fabulous wedding party. My bridesmaids all wore this adorable black sun dress with embroidered flowers from Tibi. And the guys wore sleek Perry Ellis suits. Oh, except Andy wore Joseph Aboud. He looked H-O-T-T-T.

I wish I had more pics of the actual party. My photographer is a little psycho about relinquishing the files. But I’ll get my hands on ’em and maybe post some more pics later. We did a lot of dancing—mostly Motown, some Beatles, some current indie. Lots of good stuff. And the speeches were great. Yes, I cried at my dad’s speech.

Oh, and this was really funny: I’ve chosen not take Andy’s last name, so when we walked into the tent, the DJ says “And now, introducing for the fist time, ALEX and ANDY!”
Uh, yeah. That was kind of weird.
But it was awesome!!!

Have a good weekend everybody.

    Wow! Amazing photos my sista! LOVE IT!

    I had no idea zombies could get married, but y’all look like very nice photogenic healthy zombies that don’t really eat people.

  16. Celise says:

    Love your dress, Alex. Very retro. And I love the 90210 shot. Classic. LOL. I don’t think I posted any of my pics when I got married last year on my blog. I think I just posted honeymoon shots. There were so many pics, though, that I just threw them up in my flickr acct. If people ever decide to click on the badge on my blog, they’ll see some shots.

    Where’s that place you got married? It’s beutemus!

  17. SRR says:

    Aww…so cute and gorgeous! I love your dress.

  18. pins&needles says:

    Great dress and pretty wedding! I love the idea of the 90210 shot. It makes you guys look all snazzy and too cool to be at the wedding. Plus, I love the zombie cake topper.

  19. S. says:

    Oh my! You give brides a good name! I think you are the most lovely bride, dress and hair and all I have ever seen.

    I love that you didn’t do some mean heinous pastel thing to your bridesmaids. And your dad made that sculpture?! The coolest.

    I am not into weddings but, yours is obvious exceptional.

    Well done!

  20. Congratulations on your wedding.
    Your dress is gorgeous, and you looked amazing in it!

  21. Dona says:

    Your dress is AHH-MAA-ZIIINNG!!!! I love the pink tulle at the bottom…it’s so gorgeous! And I think you can totally wear it to something else…like dinner? =)

    I love that picture of you guys kissing while your friends are standing all around you. Gorgeous!

  22. Maddy says:

  26. Crazy Eddie says:

    OMG. I am so frickin’ happy for you. You look absolutely gorgeous, with a classic 50’s flare if you ask me. You look stunning, and your groom (despite me being disgruntled and jealous) looks great too…

    The pics are fab and have such character. Not your run-of-the-mill photos of a snoozer of a wedding. Yours had pinache and humor baby!

    Again, CONGRATULATIONS lova.

    Good for you on keeping your name. Not sure what your reasons were, but as an old feminist, I approve!

    Much love to Alex and Andy forever!

  31. Dilemma says:

    That is one fantastic wedding dress! Your version is a million times better looking. I was reading an old issue of Lucky today and I saw one just like it and tore it out to stick in my journal[not that I ever about marriage or anything…] Loving the 90210 group shot and the zombie cake toppers.

  32. jayne says:
