Some Wedding Pictures

It’s been a long time since I posted my normal stuff but the wedding things had to come first. It’s not every day your “baby” gets married. I did some baking for the wedding but forgot to take pictures. I’ll have to remake at least one of the recipes to post. But first some wedding pictures!

Some wedding pictures

I want to first thank my dear friend Eileen and her husband Dan (Andi’s aunt and uncle) for holding the wedding at their lovely home. The effort they put in to make Pete and Andi’s day perfect was herculean and they made everything perfect!

We held a country, come-as-you-are wedding complete with barbecue. This is not a pretentious family!

Andi’s grandmother (seated), her Uncle Jim, brothers Seth and Austin, sister-in-law Allison, and mother, Debi (far right).

The wedding was held at Andi’s Aunt Eileen (yes, THAT Eileen) and Uncle Dan’s home. It’s a stunning property that backs up to the river. That river touches the property of almost every family member!

Being the kind of people we are we held the “reception” barbecue before the ceremony. The bride and groom had time to mingle and relax before the big moment! And of course there was lots of food after the ceremony as well!

Some wedding pictures

Dan performed the ceremony and both he and Pete took the rehearsal very seriously…with beer.

We had trouble getting the Maid of Honor to walk beside the Best Man. She’s scared of him! lol

Some wedding pictures

The Flower Girl, Maid of Honor, and Ring Bearer rehearsed about 8 times and insisted everyone watch each one!

Andi had fun dancing her way down the aisle during rehearsal. I wanted Pachabel Cannon in D but they went with something called “Marshmallow.”

Eileen and Dan’s dog Rory was dressed for the wedding in her lovely green bow (complete with ‘diamond’ stud). A good Irish dog!

Some wedding pictures

Zayden (Andi’s nephew and Ring Bearer) gave a hysterical serious speech before the wedding. He told us to be sure to “…listen to the words. They’re very strong words!”

Some wedding pictures

And finally the wedding ceremony began. The Flower Girl and Ring Bearer did a fine job walking down the aisle.

The Maid of Honor was still fleeing in terror from the Best Man who is, in reality, one of the sweetest men around!

A walk down the aisle and kissing her daddy “goodbye.”

Dan, who insisted we call him “Pastor Prime” (say that a couple of times fast) made sure there would be no crying at this wedding!

I loved how, without knowing it, they were holding the “off” hands the same way! These two are definitely meant for each other!

My darling son, Pete and his best friend, Jeff (my son from another mother!) It feels like Pete and Jeff have been friends since they were in diapers. It’s my hope that their children will be close friends until Pete and Jeff are, once again, in diapers!

Some wedding pictures

I can’t believe my little boy is a grown man with a wife! But I’m thrilled with the wife he chose!

Some wedding pictures

Eileen is so thoughtful she even made giant bubble wands for the kids. And our grandson, Devan found a toad!

Some wedding pictures

It really was a down home, barefoot country wedding although I wore my Sunday-go-to-meeting pink slippers!

Some wedding pictures

And what would a country wedding be without the obligatory weapons picture?

The party went on nearly all day into the evening and by Sunday morning I couldn’t move. But I wouldn’t change a thing! The weather couldn’t have been better, the people are my favorites in the world, and my son and the girl he loves are now man and wife! Life isn’t good. Life is fantastic!
