[July 10, 2010] So, without further ado I will start with the pro pics we took in the park before the ceremony. When I first saw Mj in his tux walking towards me outside the hotel I started to cry. He looked so handsome. This was the first of many unexpected tears of joy throughout the day. Originally we weren't going to go to this park even though they have some of the most beautiful backdrops in our city. This park is huge and always bustling with activity. There is always something going on there and I didn't think we had time to deal with traffic or parking. I told the photographer we'd meet him at a less grand but closer to our hotel park. "Do you trust me?" Mj asked. "Don't worry. Schedule the shoot at the park and I will arrange the transportation." And arrange it he did. We were whisked away in a shiny black limo.

We were supposed to meet the photographer at 2:00 pm but after such a rushed and crazy morning we were just making our way into the park at 2:30pm. Our photographers tracked us down and started snapping pics as soon as we got out. I had to force myself to calm down and stop being frazzled and worried about the time so we could just relax and take some good pics. It was actually fun walking around the park as bride and groom. Every few steps we'd get a "congratulations" by some passersby and definitely attracted attention. This is a very popular photo destination. So many times I have seen pretty young girls in elaborate quinceanera dresses and glowing brides with their dashing grooms in tow at this very park. It was so exciting that this time it was us. We were that couple and it was OUR wedding day. I really wish we'd had more time but I glad we got to do it at all. We didn't do engagement photos. And why not have as many pics as possible in our wedding day finery? It's not like we get to dress like this
very often ever.

I am really pleased with the pictures. We look happy and the backgrounds are amazing. We guzzled some champagne in the limo on the way back and got ready for the next part of our day. The Ceremony.
