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.

Such a beautiful wedding Pat. I must say it was the loveliest food I've ever had at a wedding! Love the dresses and sweet flower girls. Emily was gorgeous and we had a wonderful time with your famly.

Love the red and white. My daughter's wedding was red and white. I did all the decorating and boy was I tired. The flower girls do look lovely.

I'm really glad you didn't walk over to the other side to take those bridesmaid pictures or you might be able to see more than my bangs. Nice one.
