My beautiful sister Anne married her husband Daniel this May. They are the cutest and have been dating since he showed up on her 18th birthday – she wasn’t allowed to date before 18 – and he had had his eyes on her since they met when they were 11. So cute!
They had a long engagement and are off in Bora Bora honeymooning so I wanted to recap the wedding, even though I mostly just took terrible blurry phone pictures.
I mentioned being involved with making the decorations for my sister Anne’s wedding.
The biggest decoration were the 2,000 or 3,000 feet of paper circles sewn into garlands, which looked beautiful, but were a couple good weeks of work. We also decided two weeks before the wedding to buy the fabric pictured and sew table runners and bunting for the head table. I am so grateful for all the help my gramma and mother and sisters gave for the ironing and cutting and pinning and sewing that was necessary to make that come together in time.
Later on Friday was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner! Great family time at a casual BBQ, now that pretty much all the family has moved away from town, it was really fun to be back all together!
She did smile. But unfortunately wedding schedule and nap schedule did have some conflicts, so when I woke her up to walk into the church she told me a few times she was still sleepy and a little grumpy. She did a great job anyway! During mass I asked her (18364 times) to whisper, and she replied “Mom, Flower ‘geo’s are ALWAYS best behaved during mass!” So cute, she took her responsibility very seriously.
Very Happy Bride and Groom. I love seeing Catholic weddings like where the couple has worked so hard to live virtuously and purely and the wedding day in fact marks a TOTAL change in their lives. The beginning of a whole new life.
The kids had such a good time running back and forth across the dance floor, collecting all the balloons into one giant boquet, and doing dances for the bride and groom to Frozen songs.
Beautiful tables, teacup candles that worked out so well and were so beautiful, and my very handsome company at our table!
