 The story:

Well, in case you are new to this blog, or didn’t notice the header photos, the two stunning folks in these wedding photos are indeed us. Yes. We just got married.

After spending the last three years of our almost five year relationship being completely consumed with wedding photography, we decided that we would need a wedding a bit out of the ordinary. So we flew to Santorini, Greece, one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been. It was just to the two of us, doing it exactly how we wanted it. And it was amazing.

We woke up late, shared a nice little breakfast together, complete with a delicious mimosa :) Then I did my own hair and makeup (what a challenge!! I’m not a hair and makeup girl at all, so I was sitting there in the morning watching YouTube videos on how to do a chignon! True story :)), we got ready, and headed off to take our own wedding photos.

Yep, as I’m sure you’ve gathered, we took all of these photos of ourselves. It was such a crazy fun and challenging experience, we had a blast!! There are tons more to share, especially when we get all of our film back from the lab. But for now I hope you enjoyed finally finding out where we would run off to in the middle of the season :)

I want to share a few links with you. You see, I did all our wedding shopping on Etsy.com, pretty much the best website in the whole wide world. And the people that I worked with were so incredibly sweet, it was the best experience. So I really want to make sure to give them some props!

My dress was handmade by the amazing Nancy Wilder. She was the sweetest ever, always sending me little updates on the progress. And then, in a totally tear inducing act of kindness, she included a small piece of cobalt blue shore glass, as my “something blue”. Yes. People that nice really do exist!! Thank you so so so much Nancy, the dress was more than perfect :)

You might have noticed that our rings are pretty frickin’ sweet. Well, you’d be right. We are actually completely obsessed with them. They arrived a couple weeks before we left for Greece, but we were so smitten that we actually wore them in secret as much as we could :) They are rose gold bands, and the edges are left somewhat irregular making each one unique. They are absolutely and completely perfect. They were handmade by the amazing Jenn from Red Cat Run Studio.

And finally, you might have noticed that Rob’s belt and my necklace were a matching pair, as well as being just absolutely gorgeous. They were made by the extremely talented Naomi from Flight Path Designs. We’re both completely obsessed with her work, and will be getting a whole lot more of her amazing pieces. Seriously check them out and I challenge you not to fall completely in love with her art.

Well, I have about a bazillion emails to start working on, and we have a stellar wedding to prep for this weekend!! But we’ll be sharing some more photos in the next little while. Hope you all had an awesome two weeks, and we’re excited to be back and shooting!!

Tons of love,

Rob and Lauren Lim!!!!! :)
