LPC is at A Practical Wedding Today


Today I’m over a A Practical Wedding. This morning, you’ll find photos from my wedding. This afternoon, I heard from a little bird, might bring my choices for Mother of the Bride dresses. In the under $25o category. If my intelligence is correct, I’ll post that link too, when it’s up.

And yes, Significant Husband is anonymous on purpose. Thank you for your understanding.

    Lisa – the photos are gorgeous, and you and your children look so beautiful. I played “Moon River” as I scrolled through the pictures and it almost made me cry. Everything looked perfect, and real!!

    Such moving photos, Lisa. Beautiful too, but what shone forth most was the love. And of course the sibling teasing!

    A ceremony in City Hall and lunch in a good Chinese restaurant would be my dream wedding. You and your family looked beautiful and happy (and your daughter looks just like you).

    Wow!
    A home run all the way around. Some of the best wedding pics I’ve ever seen. Your photographer is an ace but she did have gorgeous models. The pic of you sitting and holding the flowers must be framed and on prominent display. Your daughter is a great beauty who Sargent would have been chomping at the bit to paint. Your handsome son appears to have recovered from the abuse Spike Lee has leveled on Brooklyn hipsters.

    Speaking of blissful was that the esteemed FOB’s back of head I spotted? I scooped up his memoirs (again at a fire sale price!)and look forward to reading about his boyhood at 740 Park along with everything after.
    I’m going to be humming Moon River all day!

    @GSL, Yes, that’s the distinguished fellow. Who agrees with you about Sargent, BTW:).

    Thank you so much for sharing these photos. You and your children are beautiful… and I am so enamored of your dress. And your daughter’s dress!

    I doubt that another wedding is in my future, but I’m keeping yours in my head along with my other imaginary life stuff. Wishing you much happiness!

    I’m desperately searching for readonable MOB dresses! Especially ones that are flattering, not too short, and not blingy!

    Your daughter – a Roman goddess. That dress. Oh my. And she’s going to be a Dr? She won the entire genetic lottery. Your son is gorgeous too, but he’s not wearing an amazing dress. You have amazing legs. Pity you want to hide them under ‘boyfriend’ jeans ;)

    Oh my heavens. What loveliness! It takes something very real to move me, and these photos do. You look so full of joy and peace, all at once. Your children are beautiful…they look alike, she being very beautiful, he being very handsome. But most of all they look so happy for their mother, and brimming with love for you. I love the photo of you casually sitting in your very exquisite wedding dress with your glasses propped up on your head. Perfect. You beauty and happiness shines through in every picture. And Moon River is one of my all time favorite songs…it reminds me of happy times with my parents whose marriage eventually fell apart. That part was bittersweet. Thank you for sharing such striking and intimate moments.

    Lisa, I’m not going to lie, I actually unsubscribed to your emails during all the wedding planning. Not that I wasn’t happy for you, I truly was, but I just wasn’t interested in all the little details, and I knew where to find you if I wanted to catch up. But I recently resubscribed and have to say these are the most BEAUTIFUL wedding photos I have ever seen. Everything about them. And your children are other-worldly in their translucent beauty. Belated mazel tov and may I share my favorite “wedding song” in honor of your recent nuptials, “City Hall” by Vienna Teng: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rikj0WMGbDU&feature=kp

    My niece is getting married in SF this fall, and I’m going to share your photos with her. Not sure if your photographer is in her budget, but maybe your “selective frugality” will leave an impression her!

    Best wishes, LR
