Sweet Memories

You may remember that last month, my niece got married.
She got married in my little city, at the historic Women's Club, and it was so pretty.

I really would love to share ALL of the wedding pictures with you. They are just so beautiful.
But instead I just chose a few of my favorites.

This is my whole family, except for my dad who had wandered off somewhere.
Front Row: Tim, Shelbie, Elayna, Andrew, my sister Angie, the bride Heather, groom DJ, my brother, his wife, and their son. Back Row: John, Me, my Mama.

The byooooteeful cake.
Just pronounced husband & wife.
I love this picture. The girls are all watching Heather walk down the aisle, and their happiness and love just shines in their eyes. <3

(that's my daughters, and Heather's two best friends.
The one on the far right, Crystal, is also the groom's sister.)

My oldest son Tim and youngest daughter, Elayna
The beautiful bride. LOVE this shot.
Heather & my baby girl, Elayna.

another shot of my oldest & youngest walking together. Love it!
(I'm willing to bet he's aggravating her in this picture! It's one of his favorite activities.)

Every time I look at the pictures I tear up. I never cried at weddings before, she ruined me! It was just so beautiful, and I was there when Heather was born. I was fourteen years old, so we grew up together. We've always been very close. Then, seeing my beautiful babies all dressed up too....it was emotional over load!! It was such a special day. I look forward to my children's wedding days although I hope they are a loooooong ways away!!

It sounds like quite a beautiful wedding. You know, happy crying is such a great release. I'm a crier, I used to work catering and found myself always crying on the job. Even for Navy retirements. LOL. Beautiful pictures. I love the bride's dress and the arch is really cool.

Your niece is a gorgeous bride! Shelbie and Elayna look so pretty, and Tim was very handsome. I can see why you would get all teary.
