Wedding pics…

Our niece’s wedding was beautiful and she made an absolutely gorgeous bride.  Here she is getting the final touches done on her hair and make-up and with a couple of her brides maids.

The hair stylist curled the back of Lauren’s hair.  It was really cute…

Christa’s dress was simple and elegant.  Her mom found those beautiful sparkly hair pins, which totally made the look.

Jessica, Christa’s sister, was the maid of honor…

If only Lauren would have actually walked down the aisle during the ceremony!  We spent a good hour practicing at the hotel room while all the girls got ready and she was fine.  She did great until we were lined up in the church lobby, the doors opened and the music started.  Once reality set in that she was going to have to walk down without me, the water works started and I couldn’t get her to stop in the short time we had while the first three girls walked down.  I ended up carrying her down the aisle while she cried and clung onto me.  All the time I’m throwing the rose petals for her.  I figured Christa paid good money to walk down the aisle with pretty rose petals and she was going to darn well get them!  Let’s just say thank God the wedding wasn’t video taped because we were quite the sight!

It was a beautiful day and everything went off without any major glitches.  We are so happy for Christa and Brent and wish them much love and a long and happy marriage.

I am sure you made a BEAUTIFUL Flower Girl too as Lauren looks adorable (as usual)
It looks like it was a beautiful wedding.

What a beautiful wedding. Lauren looked beautiful. I have been to many weddings where "mom" walked with the flower girl or ring bearer.

Wow, Christa was a beautiful bride! Poor Lauren, that's a big step to walk down the aisle by yourself. Glad you were there for her. She looks so darling!

Gorgeous bride- and absolutely adorable flower girl! My daughter wore the same flower girl dress in a wedding last fall (we had the 5 year old ring bearer pull her down the aisle in a wagon!)- and the color of the dress looked so amazing on her skin. Lauren is such a beautiful girl, and I have loved seeing her grow these past few years!
