Day 1: Gorgeous Wedding

As I've stated before, I'm a procrastinator but I never would have guessed that I'd wake up on the morning of the wedding to finish the boys' ties. I found Meredith's dress a few months back and then found similar fabric to make ties for the boys. Thanks to my mom, I was able to have them done by go time.

Not a great picture of Diane and Alex, but all my pictures in the church were pretty bad. This was the best! What a beautiful couple they make.

The boys, happy to be outside, relaxed against this wall.

Then Mere-Bear joined the bunch. She adores her brothers.

The family picture--wish Gracie was there!

Contemplated making this our Christmas card pic (which I would not have posted), but I'm hoping that by December Meredith will have more hair. And look at the camera.

The brothers all wore the same tie--Go Reds!!!

These brothers, and their matching ties.

All the details of the wedding were perfect. When you came in your seat placement had a starfish (or a lobster sucker if you were a kid) and the table name--all authors. We sat at Jane Austen, and each table had a quote about love by that author.

They had a photo booth, which was a lot of fun, but the whole family enjoyed the dancing part. Below is Meredith with Aunt Cassie on the dance floor. Toward the end of the night the entire reception broke out into "God Bless America." Not as good as Ray Charles, but pretty neat, none the less.

The reception was at a resort on the beach and into the night there were fireworks over the ocean. All in all, a very good time.

Wow! All kinds of amazing things! The ties, both big guys and little. The beach setting. The family pic! The mom who finished the ties! And I really like that wedding pictures...super high-priced photographer vibe! Good work!

I didn't notice, the first time looking through, that Benny had a baseball tucked under his arm while he slept. So sweet!
