I'm finally getting around to sharing about the wedding. It was beautiful! I'm kicking myself for not taking more pictures. I can't wait to see what the photographer captured. She was so much fun and easy to work with. Hope was the easiest most laid back bride. (Luckily all the weddings I've been in have been this way, no certain shoes or hair and makeup. Perfection) She was getting ready at the church and said we could all get ready there or on our own. My sister and I opted to have our glam squad meet us at the church so we could all get ready together. I seriously have the best friends in the world. Brittany offered to come and help my sister and me with our hair and makeup and I'm so glad she did. (Lorie jumped in to watch Barrett when we needed a last minute baby sitter and Kristen has been my gym buddy and constant listener! So thankful for each of them!) We looked fabulous all thanks to our "glam squad" (Brittany)! After a couple hours of hair and makeup it was time for pictures!
These are the only two pictures I took with my real camera all day. This one you've already seen.
And this one is pretty cute. This boy loves strawberries.
Patrick's parents took Barrett home after the dances. My mom wanted the Mother/Son dance to turn into a family dance so Barrett hung around for that. It was a really sweet moment. We danced and ate and just had the best time. The food was amazing. (Happy Catering Company if your in Birmingham) The cakes were beautiful and delish. My parents had the grooms cake made to look like John's truck and it was perfect. (wish I had a picture) (Posh cake design did them both).
Before we knew it the bouquet had been tossed and bubbles blown and they were own their way. It seemed like it was all over so fast. I knew it would because my own wedding was the same way. Their flight wasn't until later in the afternoon Sunday so they came and ate lunch at my mom and dads. I got to take them to the airport, which I know didn't seem like much to them but I was so excited. It was the first time I got to hear exactly what they thought about the whole day without anyone to interrupt them. They were so sweet and cute talking about the whole weekend. It was fun. Before I knew it they were climbing out grabbing their luggage.
