Our first flower girl experience!

What a BUSY fun-filled weekend!

I still have Easter Egg hunt photos to post and an 18 month post to write, but, while last night is still fresh in my head, I decided to skip the other two posts and go straight to the wedding/flower girl post!

Our good friends Matt and Jess tied the knot last night. It was a beautiful ceremony; well planned, beautifully decorated, tons of attention to detail... beautiful. I was one of five bridesmaids, and the girlies were the flower girls. She had twin little two year old boys as the ring bearers as well, and she even incorporated her pugs into the wedding ceremony! It was SO stinking cute!

I could be a bit biased, but I think the girls did an amazing job. They did so much better than I expected. We all decided that it would be best for Si to walk the girls up the aisle, as opposed to the girls being expected to walk up on their own, simply due to their young age. It couldn't have worked out better! The girls each held one of their daddy's hands and proudly walked up the aisle, like they'd done it a thousand times before (they hadn't - they practiced twice at rehearsal the night before is all). As I was a bridesmaid I was already on the elevated stage and got a perfect view of the whole performance. SO cute. SO CUTE. =)

The photographer for the wedding is the photographer that took all of the girls pictures their first year of life, so I am positive that she got some great shots of the girls that I can show you all later on. She even took one of us as a family (AWESOME), so I am hoping to have a new blog header pic in the next couple of weeks too! Sweet!

Anyhow, in the meantime, here are a couple of pictures that I snapped (or Si snapped) before the wedding got started (it was very expressly stated in the program that there were to be no photos taken during the ceremony - so for the time being, this is what I've got!). Enjoy!!

Mommy and her girls =)

Daddy and Livvy =)

Mommy and Miss Olivia =)

Aunt Denise and Miss Bri (she insisted that Aunt Denise hold her nearly the entire time before the wedding started! I bet her arms were tired!!!)

Okay, and how stinking adorable is this?! This is Olivia and one of the ring bearers (Maddux I believe)...LOVE IT!

A picture of my bouquet (can't just have cute kid pics on this blog - need flowers too! HA!)

Another pic of the girls, running laps in the hallway (with their blankets) before the ceremony got started =)

CONGRATULATIONS Matt and Jess!!!! We love you guys and are SO happy for you!!! Jess, you looked absolutely breathtaking in your gown, and Matt looked amazing all dressed up in his tux. We were so honored to be part of your special day! I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

Have a great rest of your weekend ladies!

Until next time -


  1. Everyone in the family looks great! I'm glad you guys had such a good time :)

    1. Thanks! I honestly thought I'd look pretty awful being as pregnant as I am, but in pictures I have to agree that I look pretty darn good! LOL =). It was fun. A bit tiring trying to keep the girls entertained during the down time, but it could have gone so much worse! We were very lucky!! Thanks for commenting!

  2. oh my! they are lovely!

    my twins will be flower girls in august....where did you get the dresses? i love them!

    1. Oh Jill, it will be so much fun! We actually bought these on line and got them for less than 1/2 the price they would have been at the bridal store. Here's the website:
      You can even shop by wedding "color" and see if you like any of the styles. Seriously, this was a great deal and made it so much more affordable...the dresses were $60 each. DEAL!
      You girls will be ADORABLE flower girls!!!!

  3. Aww they are so super duper cute!! And so good to hear they took their job very seriously :)

    1. Thanks!!! I always think I am totally biased! They are such girly girls though...they LOVE to be dressed up in dresses and skirts...they couldn't have been happier! And yes, they took their jobs very seriously - lol! Although I can't be totally sure that they really understood exactly what their "job" was. I think they thought that their job was to be cute and smile at everyone...and if that was what they were supposed to do they definitely succeeded! =).
      Thanks for commenting!

  4. Oh my goodness they look so sweet!

  5. "Stinking cute" is the appropriate desription. And I am so digging the girls' sandals. Plus your hot mama self was not looking shabby either ;)

  6. I thought I loved wedding pictures before, but I *really* love weddiing pictures with cute twin girls ;-)

    I love the picture of Livvy holding her blanket, and something tells me from the look on Aunt Denise's face, she didn't mind holding Bri one bit!

  7. Awww...all three of you look so beautiful. I love the girls' hair :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
