The Bunting Bash: One Happy Bunch
I couldn’t be happier with how handsome the men looked with their colorful hand-sewn bowties and suspenders. I was a teensy bit nervous that the look of suspenders and bowties wouldn’t pull together in the end, but it fit our colorful and quirky wedding perfectly.
And my lovely ladies looked lovelier than ever in their custom-made dresses! Whew, those dresses were a nightmare and a half, but they’re still rockin’ them.
Wondering who’s who of the ladies? From left to right we have Bridesmaid T (whom I originally met in high school through our boyfriend’s- she married him, too, aww), MOH Bunting (whom has been my bestie since grade school), myself, Bridesmaid Dr. M (who is now my sister-in-law!), and Bridesmaid L (whom I quickly befriended in freshman year of college and who also married one of our highschool friends).
From left to right, these dapper young men are Groomsmen A (a long-time highschool friend who is now married to Bridesmaid L), Bestman Bunting (Mr. Bunting’s brother), a very handsome Mr. Bunting, Groomsmen N (long-time highschool friend, brother to Groomsmen A, and married to Bridesmaid T), Groomsmen J (twin brother of Groomsmen N and brother of Groomsmen A), and Brother Bunting (my brother and now husband of Bridesmaid Dr. M).
If you couldn’t follow any of that, essentially our entire wedding party is either related or married to one another (but not both at the same time, haha).
We’re just one big happy Bunting Bunch!
At the last minute we decided to swap and get a photo of Mr. Bunting with the bridesmaids and me with the groomsmen. I’m so glad we did, because I love how relaxed everyone looks in these two photos. His friends are my friends and my friends are his friends (three of my ladies are married to three of the groomsmen) so it felt natural to have these.
Once the wedding party photos were done, we headed back to the pavilion building to prepare for the family portraits. Being the ever-perfectionist I am, I had to pause for a moment and adjust Daddy Bunting’s boutonniere.
And then we were off again for more photos!
