More Wedding

My patience for loading lots of pictures is nil...I did get the dishwasher unloaded, filled, laundry sorted and started, trash bagged, and other daily chores finished. Faster internet is coming when it's cooler so the guys can work on the roof and attic(?) without melting up there.

Guests were "finger printed" and leaves were added to the wedding tree. Sarah loves owls and found this unique guest book on line!
Jade grabbed bunches of petals and threw them down the aisle. It cracked me up. Olivia is looking at the "mess" behind them, but she came all the way down to the front with Jade!
My brother, Sarah's godfather, walked her down to meet Alex.
I made the ring pillow with two of Wally's shirts and Sarah picked one of his bow ties to put around it.
Three beautiful "maids".
The aunts reading a piece from Madeleine L'Engle's The Irrational Season. You may click on the title and read it.
The maid of honor and best man
Already in high heels!
Sarah Josephine and Aura, Alex's sister-in-law. We missed having his parents, but they weren't able to come from the Philippines for the wedding.
Sarah and Alex exited to Linus and Lucy by Vince Guaraldi. Their cake topper had magnets so they'd be kissing, but they were not matched correctly and wouldn't link together! Yummy cupcakes frosted and decorated by Solana, Joyce, and Aunt JoAnn. They did it at church before the wedding because it was too hot at home! Solana filled them Friday afternoon with rapsberry whipped cream. Oh. my. goodness! Divine!

My brother, me, Sarah, and Alex. I can't believe how short I am! (And can't stand the poor grammar of 'me' not coming at the end of the sentence. Much easier for ID, though).
Alex and the "maids"
Cousins!! (Olivia's mom)
My sweethearts!
Sarah and Sarah
Ali and Sarah
Julie and Sarah
I've just about caught up and recovered from a day of fever and flu-like body aches. On to the rest of the summer. Teachers go back AUGUST 10! Oh, MY!!

Such a lovely thought to make the ring cushion from your dear hearts shirts, that bought a lump to my throat.

Pleased you like the faces - there is loads of plants too!

Hope you have a lovely Sunday.
