Emily's Wedding Day
What a busy couple days it's been. Last night we had the rehearsal dinner and a meeting of the families. So much fun. We really enjoyed meeting Allan's family. His parents are great - we really hit it off. Today was the wedding in Sara's back yard - everyone looked so nice - especially the little flower girls. Then we all went downtown for the reception which was another three hours of fun. The best thing about a family wedding is having dear friends and out-of-town family to visit with. Of course I had an emotional meltdown early on - after all, this was my baby getting married - but managed to rally and enjoy the fun. I didn't take a lot of pictures because Elsa was there as our professional photographer and I know her pictures would be better than any I'd take. I'm looking forward to seeing them. In the meantime, here are some of the few that I managed to take.
The final phase of the wedding happens tomorrow morning when all the out-of town family are getting together for brunch. And that's it - I have no more kids to get married. I've told them all that there'll be no do-overs, so they better make these marriages work :)
I just noticed that there's no pictures of Allan the groomsmen and Allan's family here. I'll wait till I get Elsa's, then post them.
