Wedding Bell Blues...

If you read yesterday's post
you know that my daughter's last
BFF from school is getting married.
Here's her day~
Kristin cried all
She cried when she got up.
She cried when she got dressed.
She cried  and SHOOK
when she was
putting on her lipstick.
She cried when she
walked down the aisle
on the arm of her brother.
She wasn't crying because
she was sad.
No, indeedy!
She was crying because she
was so happy.
Happy and in love.
Happy and loved.

When she got to
the front of the church
a miracle happened.
She stopped crying
she started smiling.
She smiled for the rest of the day.

So~ You are wondering what
was the BLUE part of the day?
All the bridesmaids
wore aqua blue dresses.
Here's one sister...
Here's another sister...
Her friend and old roommate,
One of her best friends from school.
And, below is my daughter,
who decorated the church
and the reception hall,
and made the hairpieces
that matched the dresses..
Doncha just love the hanger in
the background?
Adds a little something special
doesn't it? unhmmm
(You know her best as the
Mom of SweetCheeks)

The flowergirls wore
dresses that my granddaughters
had worn.
Let me tell you,
they were expensive dresses
but today as we counted
the flowers girls that
had worn them we realized
that this was the
EIGHTH wedding
for these dresses.
Just the sash color gets changed.
We wash them on gentle and hang
them to dry.
Crazy, huh?

And MyHero did a wonderful
job performing the wedding.
It was tender and touching
and produced a few laughs.
However, at the end everyone was
quiet as the final prayer
of the blessing for
 a happy healthy marriage
winged its way towards Heaven.
The reception was a wonderful
It was at Brett Favre's
There was a lovely
mixed green salad.
a smoked chicken breast,
a small tenderloin,
fresh al dente veggies
Of course we had cake

At the end of the evening,
I asked for one last shot
of the bride and groom.
When I said
they kinda looked at me..
and then I realized that
SHOT to a policeman
has a whole different

They smiled anyway.
Kristin and Taylor-
You are beautiful.
May God bless you
and your marriage.
your photo name

Looks like the wedding went off without a hitch. Pretty girls, pretty dresses, and I'm sure the flower girls stole the show. And - I think you've probably gotten your money's worth out of those expensive dresses!
