This past Saturday my baby sister (ok, "baby" by 1 year...but still!) got MARRIED!!! Yay for Katie and Eric! I was a bridesmaid and looked 14 billion months pregnant, the girlies were adorable flower girls, and Katie was SO BEAUTIFUL. I mean, she was elegant! The rehearsal was fun, the rehearsal dinner was fun, the wedding was fun, and the reception was amazing! Good food, fun music, a superb speech given by Mary, dancing, cupcakes (the girlies' favorite part! :)), a photo booth (!!!), and much more that I am almost certainly forgetting :) I am so glad that we got to be a part of their special day!
We didn't get as many pics as we did at Cait's wedding last month (and due to lighting restrictions, most were taken with a flash :P) ~ Michael had the camera most of the time as I did my bridesmaidly duties and he was also in charge of corralling the girlies. BUT, my awesome friend/photographer Sierra Hampl was the wedding photographer and I know she will have a ton of amazing shots for them to remember their special day :)
Here is a sampling of what we got...
|My step-brother Pat did all the bridesmaids' make-up, and it looked amazing! Thanks, Pat!|
|"There was a little girl, who had a little curl..."|
|Maya gettin her hair did|
|Is the longing not palpable? :)|
|Pretty sure Mare just told everyone that Katie never got to sit in the front of the bathtub :)|
|and then she made everyone cry :*)|
|Maya with my cousin Lauren. I am pretty sure 90% of Maya's clothes from her first 3 years of life were hand-me-downs from Lauren!|
|I think she's telling Jim to "step off"!|
|After taking this picture, Michael sent me a message (to my phone) that said, "The feelings of love felt while watching you dance with worn out Charlotte are awesome" <3|
|Katie with the photographer and her assistant|
|Charlotte was doing her best to stay awake by eating ice :)|
Congratulations to Katie and Eric!!!
