On Labor Day weekend, Ryan and Abby got married on a quiet little farm in Minnesota. Abby is my sister-in-laws’ sister and we go way back. In fact, in the days leading up to the wedding, Abby slept on one side of an L couch and I took the other side and we had more than one chat until the wee hours of the morning. Sure, we talked about love, weddings and high heels… but mostly we talked about God’s faithfulness. Talked about the One that remains when the twinkly lights at the reception are turned off, about the One who gifts us with things like love and marriage.
Abby, thanks for staying up way too late on the few nights in a girls life where the beauty sleep is worth its weight in gold. My weekend was made before the festivities even started. And you never needed beauty sleep to be beautiful anyways!
I don’t usually include rehearsal pictures, but I’ve included a bunch this time just because the night was beautiful, the people were beautiful… AND my nieces are entirely too cute for words. I fought a losing battle only trying to post one or two, you’ll be seeing more of them.
The long-awaited day is here at last.
Now THAT is what I call bling. Check out the brooch bouquet!
Classic cars were part of the theme. The wedding party arrived at the ceremony in them.
Love pretty much everything about this one.
If you came to the wedding for entertainment, these little ladies (aka my nieces, cousins, best friends) were all over it. They started off in long, tight embrace recovering from the nerve-wracking walk up the aisle. They obviously got more comfortable after that, morphing into a cute hand holding routine and then discovering their bouquets as playthings (this is where the parents smiles got a little tighter). Then…
… they totally broke out into a sword fight with their flowers. This is one my favorite flower girls pictures ever of all time, as Gracie smilingly takes a square hit from Mollie’s weapon.
Back to the subject at hand. MARRIED!!
Reception. These girls poured tons of work into this and I think Pinterest should know about it, don’t you?
Sweet toasts from the sisters.
And they lived happily ever after. Love you guys!
