Before I get to today's Friday Find, I am ready to share with you the most unfortunate thing to come out of our wedding. I had a whole long thing typed up about this unfortunate situation, but I'm really going to try and keep this as brief as possible:
Our photographer has lost about 45 minutes worth of photos that were taken of me and my bridesmaids at my house before the ceremony. I have about 9 different set-up shots that we distinctly remember taking that are just missing. These include me with my bridesmaids in all our matching zip up terry-cloth hoodies, and matching flip-flops that I worked so hard to make, as well as the pictures of my mom and sister zipping me up in my dress to name a few. They have no idea where they are, they are simply...gone. Obviously - this is a bride's worst nightmare. These are moments I can never get back. No one took pictures of these on the side because obviously, no one felt it was necessary.

I put off saying anything about it mostly because I refused to believe it was true. I kept hanging onto that hope that they would find them, or a memory card with all the photos would magically appear...but this week it has pretty much sunk in for me that they are just gone.
Obviously, the photography studio is very upset and doing everything they can to uncover them. Of course, they said this has never happened before (why me, right?), and they promise to make it up to us. I understand we're all human and this was a freak accident. We all make mistakes, believe me I know this, but deep down...I am so angry and upset at them. I don't even care to go there and work with them on the albums at this point. There's nothing I can do about it...what's done is done, and I'll just have to go on the memory of all those fun posed shots with my bridesmaids and the memory of my mom and sister zipping me up in my dress.
Friday Find: Sigh...I guess I should be happy that this didn't happen at my wedding though, right? Which is worse? having 45 minutes of wedding pictures missing, or having this happen to you on your wedding day?:
Good thing we nixed the Zip-line entrance!
This is bad, but I think I win...
