A late summer wedding

Hubby’s sister got married at the first of August.  My cute girls were flower girls.  They were so adorable.  And did an excellent job.

It was a beautiful day.  They let the gorgeous outdoors  be their background and only hung these paper lanterns.  It was so pretty.

Doesn’t that look beautiful?

Everything was so lovely, you couldn’t help but enjoy yourself.

My girls were amazing.  They took care of Emma because I had to be seated and they were lined up.  And they looked so sweet as they walked down.  I got tears in my eyes watching them.

Of course we had to snap a few family photos while we were there.  Luckily the DJ happened by and I could pass off my camera and jump in one myself.  I think it is important to come out from behind the camera and document yourself in moments with your family.

Here is the happy couple.  I just love how they strung those lights above.  I want to do something like that in my yard someday.

My girls were so patient and sat for picture after picture.  How can you not take advantage of such a beautiful space and such lovely girls?

There was a dinner after the ceremony and then for the reception they had an ice cream bar.  I thought that was such a cute touch and of course my girls loved it.

I’ve never seen a sign like this at a wedding before but I loved it.  I think it was the perfect personal touch.

Instead of a sign in book, they had letters cut out of wood and everyone signed on them.  Then they can put them up in their home.

Don’t you just love the silly wedding party picture?  Love the little kids in this one.

After the formalities there was lots of dancing.  Aunt Kimberly was so sweet about including my girls.  I thought maybe she would be busy and involved with things and wouldn’t have a lot of time for everyone.  But she went out of her way to make them feel included.  It was very sweet.

It was such a lovely night.  I have great memories of spending time with family in a beautiful place.

It was much needed after the unexpected funeral the week before.

At the rehearsal dinner my mother in law leaned over to me and said you know the next girl in our family to get married could be Samantha.  WOW!!  I don’t even want to think about that.  She is still my little baby and I wish they would all stay young forever.

Even so, I did take note of some ideas for when that day comes.  Which I am sure will be here in the blink of an eye.  I have started a wedding pinterest board which I am slowly filling with ideas.  I know it is AT LEAST a decade off so I am only pinning things I truly love and hopefully when that day comes it can be as lovely as this wedding was.

  3. What a unique and very beautiful wedding! It looks like it was very enjoyable for everyone. Your daughters looked like models and little ladies. How enjoyable that must have been. Thanks for sharing the joy!

  5. The only words that I can conjure is just “WOW”…”GORGEOUS”…”STUNNING”…thanks a million for sharing the wedding shots…all I can feel from the pictures is the love, closeness and the bond. Your girls have definitely inherited your looks…they are so so so pretty and will grow up to become lovely young women in no time…Love the picture of you and your family and the last one with your sister-in-law and the girls dancing….so much of laughter and love. I can only imagine the time spent on dressing up your little angels which was definitely worth all the effort.

    Wishing you a great week.
