our wedding diaries {getting dressed at the church!}

last week i shared photos of the guys getting ready on our wedding day
here are some photos of getting dressed/first looks with my amazing dad 
in the house next to our church in uptown charlotte
hope you enjoy! 
a little piece of my grandmas' hearts and faith with me that day
seeing my dad for the first time was one of the highlights of the day for me 
the pictures melissa captured were priceless- i love them so much.
i also adore this photo of my sister's hands clasping each button
my mom, sister, and i have always had such a close bond
esp. with clothes/shopping
so having them with me while i got dressed that morning was so special.











trying not to cry - so much love.








moss letters were placed on the outside of the church doors - we then moved them to the reception and placed them on the doors to the dance floor!

his card was so beautifully written- i loved it so much. 
my handsome groom arriving
at the second st. peter's church of the day 
{the bus initially took the guys to the wrong church}

i am thinking about starting to share photos from our ceremony next week 
...stay tuned...
and again, thank you for all of the love so far regarding our wedding diaries!
means a lot. 
all photo by the amazing and sweet melissa tuck
so excited to start linking up with macy and meg each week!

  3. Nelle, I'm am totally in awe of how well your love of vintage shines through in your wedding. ALL of your pictures are just amazing. You're photographer did an amazing job, and I love all the details that are shown in this post. The buttons ARE perfect (I wanted buttons, but my perfect dress didn't have them, haha) and the picture of your sister latching them is precious.

    If you couldn't tell by all my comments on your wedding posts so far..I'm totally in love with your wedding + the pictures from it!
