Self-Portrait Challenge ~ with Someone ~ My Girls

I can't really believe I'm sharing with you a picture of me in a corset, but this is truly one of my very favourite of our wedding photos because it is me and my girls, the kind of girl friends every girl should have. And what I love about this picture best is, well, can you see how serious they are? Do you see how carefully they're taking care of me? I felt so blessed and so loved and loved for who I am.

See, I'm a bit of an organization nut and more than a bit of a planner. For our wedding, I had lists and I had lists to cross-check those lists. As all bride's, I'm sure, I really wanted everything to be just so. My bridesmaids, Suzie, Shannon and Gala, never made me feel like I was being too fussy. They just wanted me to be happy and did all they could to support me and make me feel loved. When I look at this picture, that's what I remember. Thank you, ladies. You're the best.

Gorgeous photo, I really like these behind the scenes type of picture. They capture something very special about a particular time. I think you look lovely in your corset.

Oh, my Jamie I am surprized you posted this! But then again its so great I can see why!

What an amazing day and experience the wedding was! Everything was perfect! And if it wasn't ... you'll never know!

Just kidding :)

I'm so glad we could be there for you and help make the dream become a reality.

I had no idea this was you. It is featured on the SPT site and I thought it was so cool that I wanted to comment about what an amazing moment captured.

It is so not surprising that you have good friends that care for you, you make those around you feel so comfortable and special with you light!

I want to see more wedding pictures. Do you have them posted somewhere?

They all have very focused faces and I think you have the only smile ;) This is very special indeed. I wish I could see you in your dress too :)

Great photo! I remember being at a friend's wedding once, and all her bridesmaids were much more concerned with what their own makeup and hair looked like than how the bride was doing; it was terrible. Clearly, your girls are real friends -- this is a pic to cherish. (Also, thank you so much for your kind words about my tiny story! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much!!)

what a beautiful picture!!! I love reading about your sisters and your relationship. I get jealous in a happy-for-you sort of way. I also love that one of your favorite wedding photos doesn't even have a boy in it! Wonderful!!!
