So today was the big shebang. And I really hope no one in these pictures mind their pictures on here…lol. The wedding was really, really beautiful. You could tell these two were just giddy in love and so ready to do this thing. After 10 years of marriage, it almost made me want to barf lol. Ok, just kidding. It was great to see that excitement in two people. It’s a rare thing these days.
The decorations, food, singing, even the people were all beautiful. Kelly and Brandon have some very pretty family and friends. The rain even held off for them until the very end.
And without further adieu, here are some pictures. First off, let’s take a look at the fashion for the day. Because last night Heather, Scott and I had to run out and buy the girls new dresses because the ones I brought just didn’t cut it. So we went with the purple theme of the wedding. It paid off actually. Here are my little princesses:
And here is the dress I bought from the Dress Barn the other day when we went shopping. I also found those very cute hot pink pumps and matching bracelet at the mall yesterday. Emma took this picture. You can see we were laughing about it. I think she did well.
So let’s get started with the ceremony! The two say their vows. I did get a little teary-eyed during this. He honestly was the most earnest groom I’ve ever heard give his vows. So sweet.
The lighting of the unity candle…two become one.
Between the ceremony and reception Amy takes a minute to check in on email on the beloved iPhone (did I mention my MOM got one and I just set it up tonight?! Wish I had THAT training session on video). Can’t lose a minute.
The cake (and cutting). They were
too very nice to each other during the exchange.
We all take some time during the reception to grab some family photos. Mom took this one of Heather and I.
We grab one with our cousin Amber. Isn’t she gorgeous??
All my girl cousins on my Dad’s side. We’re second generation of Nana’s girls. I wish I had a picture of us growing up at Christmas to post and compare. We always got our pictures taken together.
And finally, the two newlyweds grab a kiss towards the end of the reception.
Congratulations, Kelly and Brandon!
