My one regret after my wedding was that my husband and I didnt get any ''portraits'' of the two of us. We had an amazing photographer, and some FANTASTIC pics, almost all photojournalist. I just didnt get good portraits of him and i (other than at the vegas sign). He even asked me during the evening if i wanted portraits, and i was too enthraled in my day...

this is my wedding pic post with the first photographers pics ruby red wedding

So what we did, as vain as it sounds.... Was when we went to vegas a few months later, hired another photographer to do some couple shots around the four seasons (where we were married). I didnt wear my wedding gown but a cute laundry dress I found on clearance at Loehmans.

It was so much fun, and we got such a unique photo shoot, without the wedding day stress. I thought you all might be interested in a few pics! I call them my post wedding-bridal shoot!

It was the Four Seasons Las Vegas. Our wedding was at Mandalay Bay, and then we had the reception at the Four Seasons! It was so fun!

How cute are you guys??? I think that was a great idea- the post wedding shoot. Now you can have photos (other than the wedding ones) to enjoy. I love Vegas, I have been to that Four Seasons many times- we always go there for breakfast at their restaurant right off the pool. Its gorgeous!!!

Love the pics and thanks for sharing!!!

You are just adorable, and I can tell your husband is utterly in love with you!!! It''s so cute to see in the photographs. You two look completely stress free and comfortable together in these photographs. Your photographer must have been excellent.

MsFlutter!
These are so fun and so fantastic! What an amazing idea!
I was totally not thrilled with our pictures as we used the only photographer available and her pictures were pretty "canned." We''re happy to have the picture/memories of our event, but they''re not "special."
You and your guy are so super cute! It looks like you had a ton of fun... now you''ve got my wheels turning,
hmmm, we sure could use another trip to St. John....
Wicked of you to plant the seed....but delightfully wicked...

Amazing pictures! Very very very cute!

What fun pics, MrsF!
Great idea!

I actually thought of doing the same thing, but just for hubby. I was looking at our pics the other day, and couldn''t believe that there weren''t any portraits of JUST him!
There''s a lot of portraits of just me, and we have a fair amount of portraits of the two of us, and a ton of photojournalistic portraits which are AWESOME.

Are you getting your pics through pictage? We have a credit with them, but I keep on putting off ordering our pics. There''s soooo many to go thru.

I''m with ya on the 10 pounds msflutter...doesn''t it suck? But you still look fab and I think it was a great idea to do these after you are man and wife. Just allows you relax and the love shines through more easily.

Thanks for sharing!

P.S. (The photos could use a little bbag action though. hehehehe)

thanks for all the kind words ladies.

I definately felt very old hollywood!

Just think these were all taken before the bbag craze, if not, I might have been able to work one in :)

charger, i bought a ton of pics off pictage from steve, and may buy more but these are from atgcreative photographers in vegas! they use another print site, and they actually print the pics and send them! Are you going to order pics for a formal album? I''ve ordered them, but dont really want to do the book myself!

What did you get? What did your DH get? MUST. KNOW. DETAILS. The last time I was there for my B party in May it was in Mandalay (they had two stores I think though) where are they now? DH promised me a trip to Vegas sometime this winter/spring so I have to make sure I know where it is to visit it again!!! I have fond memories of the Chocolate Swan from my childhood. I am just glad if they had to leave WI she went to vegas (somewhere I actually visit) vs. somewhere else.
