Wisconsin: Round Two: Mary and Andy's Wedding!

~ June 28, 2014 ~

There was a slight concern for rain showers on the big day, but the weather cooperated and the wedding was beautiful.

For starters, here is Mary's bouquet.  It is made of numerous brooches - some that belonged to family members and some that she found.  From the bottom of the bouquet dangled three photos of family members who are no longer here with us: Grandpa Jim, Grandpa Chris, and Grandma Rose.  It's just gorgeous!

The boys in front of my parents' house.  They're ready for a wedding!

Bella got ready with me and the rest of the girls that morning.  She couldn't wait to put her flower girl dress on.

We were sitting on the golf cart while Mary and Andy were having some photos taken. Perfect time for a sister selfie!

And later on with Dad!

Then each of us girls got individual shots with Dad.  I think the last photo I have of just the two of us was from my own wedding almost 12 years ago!

The kids were so content to play on the bridge and near the stream.

It only rained for a few minutes and even then, the sun was still shining. It was light, refreshing, and very magical.

Later at the reception. . .

Most of the photos that I took turned out blurry or grainy.  I can't wait to see what the actual photographer got.  

Andy and Nora.  You can tell that Andy is getting a little tired now.

Mary had a cake made for Curtis's birthday, which was that day.  This is absolutely the nicest cake he has ever had and he was thrilled with it!  This was the perfect cake for our superhero-loving-boy and it was so thoughtful of Mary to do this for him.

We were all pretty exhausted by the end of the night, but filled with joy over such a lovely wedding.

Congratulations Mary and Andy!  We love you so much!
