My baby's beautiful!
We had lots of tears in the weeks before this day because we were missing her daddy. She carried him with her on her bouquet. I didn't know it until I saw the pictures, then cried once more.
The cousin's daughters were flower girls and this is probably the only moment they had their headbands and shoes on at the same time!
With thanks to Aunt JoAnn for making the tutus and Aunt Ginny for getting the matching shoes and leotards, our wee ones were too cute!
Sarah brought home flowers from Safeway in Denver and the "maids" made the bouquets. The one with the crystals in the middle of each rose was Sarah's and she included one red rose in memory of Wally.
Alex and Sarah had a small cake for cutting and the guests were served cupcakes that she baked. A former student and friend of mine filled them with the yummiest raspberry cream filling, frosted and decorated them with lavender sugar sprinkles.
Here are the guys and my dollie.
More later of the girls and family.
