wedding polaroids!

Thought I would go ahead and post the Polaroid portion of our wedding photos. Big thanks to the lovely Erin Abbott for almost all of these shots!

For those of you all who don’t know, we got married in a little old house right next to the University of Arkansas campus. It just so happens to be the house where Bill & Hillary Clinton use to live (and where they were married). Plus, we just so happen to be the first couple to get married there since them, hince all of the Clinton references below and the newspaper article.

    My wife and I think your polariods rock the house!!! We just stumbled on this site randomly. We wish you the best. Mike & Sandy ps. We stayed at the Fontainebleu in 2005 and it reminded us of P diddy. There also was a cheerleader convention, but that was weird.

    I randomly came across your blog while looking for good ideas for polaroid cake toppers. Your wedding looked amazing. I hope we have half as much fun as it looks like you guys had. Congrats and best wishes for a long happy life together!

    p.s. I adore your dress! Where did you find it?

    I also found this site by accident but I loved being able to see your photos. They are so fun and intimate I almost feel like I was there. Really love the dress, flirty and bridal without being overpowering. You two look so in love. By the way, my husband and I were married on August 18, 1990. It was a good day too! Best wishes for a long and healthy life together.
