And now, on to the good stuff. This weekend had been a long time coming, one I looked forward to for almost three years. Ever since my brother sat down next to me over Labor Day weekend 2009 and said, "So I've been dating this girl for a few weeks. She's really cool." I think part of me knew, right then, that she was The One.
And yesterday, they got married! I'll share more details this week, but let's be honest: you just want to see tons of pictures, right? Well, I am not one to disappoint, so enjoy!
With my mom's best friend (the best man's mom and the officiant's wife)
The rehearsal dinner:
My uncle insists that I post my appetizer plate (though I suppose I should note that Terry and I shared)
With my aunt
The Wedding Day
The groom and groomsmen
Groom and my parents
The gorgeous bride
And her absolutely stunning dress
With my cousin Chase (who caught the bouquet!)
And with my own hubby :-)
The bridal party!
Very cool DIY idea for table numbers
Ashley's dad's speech
One of my favorite photos that Terry captured
With the best man
The Newlywed Brunch
My handsome husband
Signing the marriage license
Another super cool DIY idea - tape the bills together and have the recipient pull them out in a long strand
Chris and Ashley bobbleheads!
A very special congratulations to the gorgeous couple. I'm so thrilled that my big brother found the girl of his dreams, and we are all so happy that Ashley is such a wonderful person. I'm especially glad to finally have a sister! It was a beautiful, fun weekend with a lot of love all around.
Tomorrow (Monday), the happy couple are off on their honeymoon! Wishing you both a wonderful week of fun in the sun!
More to come about the wedding this week, along with some thoughts about starting October on a positive note. Have a great first day of the new month!
