She's Married.

I had no camera. No camera! at my sister's wedding. It was left behind at the church.
All pictures here taken with my iphone. 

A few facts about the day.

~ Her wedding party consisted of...
11 Bridesmaids, 3 Jr. Bridesmaids, 11 Groomsmen, 10 Flower Girls
1 Ring Bearer, 1 Miniature Bride, 2 Ushers
39 people total.

~ It was a beautiful outside.
The first wedding in our family that didn't involve rain or drizzle.

~ My Grandma baked the entire sweet table herself.
She has done this for all her grandchildren's weddings.
Billions of her Italian cookies on display. 

~The reception took place in a gorgeous, old building.
I want to live in it! Oh I want to live in it so badly...{I wasn't the only one who said this.}
They say the building is haunted...OOoooOOAAaaaahhhAAHhhoOO...we didn't see any ghosts. ;)

~There was a separate room for hors d'oeuvres,
 you had to walk through an old elevator shaft to get to the dining hall.

~ My sister made her own bridal bouquet.
Her friend Stephanie made all of the bridesmaid bouquets...they were absolutely gorgeous! 


{the hired help ^^^ working hard}

{Can you see why I want to live here? }

~ We took pictures at an old airport my sister loves.

Late in the evening, right before my sister left for her honeymoon.
Such a beautiful bride she was....I can't believe she's married.

~ Dancing to The Tarantella and other old Italian songs, the little girls had a ball.

~ The {very handsome} DJ for the evening...along with his little nephew apprentice.

I love weddings. They are a lot of work, they can be stressful, but always so much fun.
I'm so happy for my sister and her new husband as they start this blessed adventure together.
