The wedding day came and we were all prepared. I had made the lists of all the things we needed: curling iron, make up, jewlery, the shoes. Everything was packed and in the car. Our friends Mary and Jeremy followed behind us with the dresses and the steamer. When we got to the venue we dressed the girls and did one last rehearsal and then it was time. I left the little ones with the bridesmaids and took a seat. I was fairly sure that all would be well. Violet was very excited to be there and she just loved her dress. But still, you just never know with a three year old. The music started to play and the bridesmaids started walking. Everyone was beautiful. And then came my two little ones. I held my breath.....
They did it! I was so happy. The service was lovely and sweet. The bride was crying as she walked down the aisle and it made us all tear up. The girls stood still and silent during the vows and walked politely back down the aisle after the service.
Then the ripped off their shoes and daisy rings and begged for food! We all had a great time. The reception was fun. It's been a long weekend. I'm going to fight my way through some laundry and dishes so while I do that, have a look through a sampling of the photos we took that day.
I'm so glad they made it down the aisle!

My mom, and my nephew Zac who is also the groom! I was freaking out because the service was starting and I couldn't see my mother anywhere. I was just about to get up to look for her and then I saw Zac escorting her to her seat and then taking his place at the alter. I didn't know he was going to do that and I thought it was very sweet.
The bride, Lindsey, and the groom, Zac. Poor Lindsey was just doing all she could not to sob. Zac looked so nervous!
The mother of the groom and my sister Cindy with dad of the groom and my BIL Jim. Ha! She's going to shoot me for putting this picture up!!
I'll make my ammends by posting this pic. That's me in the striped shirt with the mother of the bride. We were discussing the fact that a large bug flew up the brides veil during the service and what was the best way to see if it was still there w/o freaking her out. I ended up just faking that I was really into veils and needed a closer look. No bugs were found!
