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 -
