So, I'm a little embarrassed about this, but my philosophy is better late than never, right? OK, so let me just set up my story. When Grant and I were engaged we had SO MUCH GOING ON! First of all, we were apart for about the first 6 weeks because it was the end of summer. My grandma had just passed away, my other brother was getting married, and an intense semester of school was starting. So, all the wedding plans just went wonderfully, but I didn't have the alterations done on my dress until about a month before and I couldn't get the dress from CO to UT in order to take bridals before hand. Also, Grant is a traditionalist so he didn't want to see me in my wedding dress before the wedding day. The wedding day we didn't want to take pictures because we wanted to rest (it's our own dang fault, I know). So, we were planning on taking pictures between the reception and open house, but when we got back from our honeymoon we jumped right back in to school and finals. Then, we couldn't do it over Christmas break because we were traveling, and then a new semester started and life went super fast and now it has 8.5 months of marriage and I still haven't taken bridals. Also, I wanted more pictures of just Grant and I from our wedding, but we really didn't have time. So, today is the day. After 8.5 months of marriage, we are taking wedding pictures today :) Thanks to Emily and Stephen they are going to take pictures of us, and thanks to my wonderful husband for being a good sport and letting me a wifezilla about this :) Anywho, I'll post pictures when we are done! You may think I'm ridiculous and you may be thinking "ok, you got married over 8 months ago, get over your wedding day." And to you I say--we had good excuses and this is for posterity sake. So sue me!
