She had a vintage-style wedding in my parent's backyard.
A taste of the last week:
The events kicked off on Thursday evening when we had my sister's bridal/lingerie shower. It was a fun, girly time spent catching up with old friends. I made the Pioneer Woman's red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and while it tasted great, it looked disastrous (made for a good laugh!). Turns out that it's ok to butter and flour a pan, but not to oil and flour a pan. Good to know.
I also got to play with two of my god-daughters (they are 3 1/2 months old and completely delightful).
|Emma and Adeline|
|My sister Michaela getting ready. She gets married in May!|
|The bride (Lindsey), just after her dress was properly buttoned. :)|
|Just after putting on her veil. Isn't she beautiful?|
|The bride and groom. Welcome to the family, Jared!|
|All of my siblings|
|Lindsey and Mom. This picture makes me tear up every time. :')|
|Just after the cake flinging...|
|My brother pulled our grandmother out onto the dance floor by surprise...look at her face!|
I'm not sure if our B&B is going to have Wi-Fi, so Try New Adventures Thursday will take a break this week.
What is your favorite part of a wedding? I am always grateful for the reminder (usually during the ceremony) that love lives to fulfill the other person.
