Wedding Pictures

The wedding day was so hectic that I failed to get a good picture of the couple, my sister Michelle and Nick. Here they were looking fabulous together at the rehearsal dinner. Congratulations and Best Wishes!

(Just realized that I posted reception first instead of the wedding -sorry :)

Could we have a drummer in our future? I sure hope not, but isn't she cute? We were looking around for Lilly and then David spotted her making herself right at home on the drums while the band was on break. We all got a huge laugh out of that including the drummer himself who gave Lilly a few pointers too.

As close to the perfect family photo as we can get these days. At least the background is "perfect".

I love this picture of Ethan and Lilly peeking through the window to look at everybody dancing. Too cute!

Ellie was beautiful and did great with all the weekend's festivities. Of course she loved the reception- lots of yummy food and fun dancing!

My sister, Michelle, made such a beautiful bride, and her wedding gown was gorgeous! The wedding and reception were both lovely, and she planned it all while living 4 hours away and working 60- 80 hours/week as a resident physician. Superwoman!

Lilly did great although after standing at the front of the church for all of 5 minutes, just long enough for the bride to make it down the aisle (thank goodness), she then quietly bolted for her daddy and Ellie who were sitting on the second row. Did you guess that dad had lots of ammunition i.e. candy! Once or twice I heard "MINE!" and a whine or two. I'm sure if one looked closely they could have seen my whole body tense up, but other than that, the girls were really good!

Almost time to walk down the aisle. The stress of it all was so worth it because the children all looked so beautiful and did what they were suppossed to for their Aunt Michelle and Uncle Nick.

Don't they look handsome- despite the similar yet hilarious thing they are both doing with their mouths! At that point, I was just glad they were dressed and willing to walk down the aisle. Perfect picture wasn't important.
