I promised you, awhile back, that I’d share the we’re-getting-married-pictures we took with Emily Takes Photos in San Francisco’s Mission District. Well, the day is here, so welcome to the cacophony of color that is our lives in San Francisco:Us. | A Practical WeddingUs. | A Practical WeddingUs. | A Practical WeddingIn this last photo Emily said, “Meg, be sassy.” And then there was a pause and she said, “Oh my God what are you doing?? Whatareyoudoing?” And David sighed, and said, “She can’t help herself. Meg, be LESS sassy.”

See much more over at Emily’s blog…. (oh my god, I just clicked over, us kissing is her HEADER. Go see us kiss…)

    Meg! You are darling! The photos are candy and I'm so very happy for you. Long time reader who often sits in a cube saying, "yes, Yes, YES!" to your posts.

    Have fun this weekend.

  • Tafe

    It's so fun to see you looking so incredibly happy and relaxed. And I LOVE the locations you chose. I want to move to SF someday and this just gave me more inspiration!

    Best wishes, Meg. I'll be thinking of you on Sunday. Remember, be calm, be happy, be in the moment, and you'll treasure it forever (especially the cake).

    Seven months after the fact, I think back on that day and I smile thinking about my poor, sick husband, just about to take his vows, crinkling an object in his jacket pocket and whispering to me, "I've got the Ricola," which made me giggle. Then only moments later, with watery eyes saying, "Hold it together, for me. Please. If you lose it, I'll lose it."

    I responded the only way I knew how by whispering, "Riiiicolaaa."

    It's now our secret code for, "I love you," and also a reminder of how incredibly in this we are. Together.

    Meg, I love being a wife. So far in life, it's been my most satisfying and challenging role. So here's to the rest of yours and David's life. Cheers.

    Look at you two adorably cute people!!!

    And can I say how much I love that you wore "normal" clothes for your engagement pix? I just said. I love it.

    Can't tell you how many people are asking me and my boy, "So, what are you wearing for engagement pix?!?! And the excitement they have over our wardrobe literally boggles our minds.

    "We'll wear clothes, of course." is my slightly confused somewhat "Well, DUH!" response.

    And the sassy photo? LOVE. More sass please. :)
