Happily After All: Bride and Groom and Dog Portraits

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my second hair appointment of the day, but after we left finished our bride and groom pictures, and made a quick stop at my house, we all got back on the bus and headed to the country club where all of our guests were enjoying the beginning of our cocktail hour. 
Before we headed out to take some bridal party pictures, we had one more mini session of bride and groom portraits.  But this time there was an addition to be made.  Mr. T's uncle brought little Chiefy out to the country club so that he could be a part of the picture taking.
I absolutely love some of these "family photos."
 We still had our sunglasses on from the bus ride over.  I'm totally not a person that wears sunglasses so I don't totally love that picture, but it's still kinda cute.

For those of you with pets, I'm sure you know how hard it is to get them to cooperate during pictures.  You'll appreciate the following two, where all he wanted to do was love on us and play around.

That cute little puppy right there weighed in at 103 pounds last week at the vet.  He's definitely gotten a lot bigger in the last 9 months!

I can't remember if I ever talked about it before the wedding, and I can't seem to find the post if I did, but I just wanted to share a little info on Chief's tie quickly.  I purchased it from a great Etsy seller, Mia's Closet.  She worked with me to make a custom listing for the tie so that it was big enough to fit around his neck.  She also made the tie attach with velcro and included a bowtie that could be used as well.  It was totally ridiculous and adorable, and I am not at all a person that puts clothes on her pets, but I think it was fitting for the occasion!

Next up:  We all climb on golf carts and head out for more pictures!

  1. So cute! I REALLY still wish we could've had Paisley in some pictures with us, but it just wouldn't work logistically. And it was SO hot that day, it's probably better we didn't try to bring her. I love your photos, though!

  2. I was really glad we were able to get him there. There was a lot of time in between our ceremony and the reception so one of his uncles was able to run to his house and pick him up and bring him back home as well.
    I'm really glad we got a few good ones!

  3. You KNOW I love these!!! The licking (aka KISSING!) pic is my fave!

  6. These are so adorable...what a great idea!

  7. pimples are really annoying, you can kill them using benzoyl peroxide but it will also make your skin red.
