The Lollipops Get Hitched: Part 3 - Poise!
Part 1: Tryin' to Get the Pretty
Part 2: Please Help Me; I Can't Dress Myself
There was a weird bit of time between getting ready and finally entering the ceremony. We needed to take a few pre-cerenony pictures, but at the same time I wanted to be seen by as few people as possible, and I especially didn't want Mr. Lollipop to see me before the ceremony. My bridesmaids and family members acted as guards and messengers to clear each room before I could advance like a king piece on a chessboard.

We waited on the landing until the front hall cleared. I can't remember what was said to give me that facial expression, but it was probably something scandalous.
Meeting up with my dad for the first time after getting dressed:
Each of the mothers recieved fragrant gardenia corasges. Coincidentally, the bloom is a favorite of both of our mothers.
The groom and wedding coordinator gave out last minute directions and smoothed unexpected kinks.
Me with my abuelita:
This is one of my favorite pictures of me with my dad.
My mom gave me her wedding ring as my 'something borrowed'. I was expecting her to loan me a different, less sentimental ring, so I was surprised and honored.
We snuck a few pictures in the chapel before the guests were seated.
I can't believe how gigantic my dress looed from the rear. It never seemed that big in the garment bag, but after putting it on it appears that I could hide my own pretzel cart under the train. Mmm...pretzel.
My husband likes pictures of me making funny faces. I did my best Bridezilla for him in this photo.
