So I'm finally getting around to posting about Daniel and Wendi's wedding weekend. I posted all these pictures on facebook the day after the wedding, and kind of lost my motivation to post them here since most people have facebook. But for those who don't, here they are! :)
Preparations began Friday morning at 10am at the fellowship hall. There was lots of help, which made everything go pretty fast. We washed and cut up all the fruit, got all stuff ready for pasta salad, and set up the tables and decorations.
Diane and my mom spent a fair amount of time deciding which dishes to use.
Jenna and I kept Wendi company while she finished up her reception thank you's.
The table arranging experts. It's actually more difficult than you would think.
Making pasta salad
Gotta make sure that pasta salad tastes ok!
Pedicures on Friday afternoon. Wendi got the royal treatment and we waited FOREVER for them to finish with her!
Breakfast Saturday morning. Adam was thrilled to be up so early.
Wendi had been up for a while and was getting excited!
Saturday morning breakfast group
Mom kept busy re-ironing all the bridesmaid's dresses and looking for Jenna's missing belt. Wouldn't you know, it was on the loveseat in my parent's room, under a pillow.
Ready for pictures! And I have no pictures of the wedding party. For those you'll have to wait until Wendi gets around to posting them.
Rehearsal dinner. Daniel's family had it at the fellowship hall. His dad made steak and by Saturday it had been marinating for 4 days. It was AMAZING! Super tasty and so tender you hardly needed your knife. Some if his aunts and uncles served us.
My plate. And I didn't include the picture of it, but at each place there was a chocolate covered peanut butter ball. And they were wonderful. I ate mine before dinner even came out. And after we got home I ate Luke's. And somehow Ellie's ended up going home with my mom and dad and when I saw it at their house on Sunday night, I ate her's too.
Checking out the scrapbook.
Sunday morning breakfast group. Minus the Adam and Luke who refused to be photographed again.
Elizabeth did Wendi's hair and did a wonderful job! I wasn't around for most the process, but I heard that it required must patience on Elizabeth's part. :)
Ready to walk down the aisle!
Jenna was the only one who'd never been in a wedding before and she was so nervous.
Katie caught the bouquet!
Bridget had a darling little white dress that I'd made. And about 20 min after getting to the reception, she pooped through it.
And then they were off for a week in Cancun. I was totally jealous. After a full weekend and dealing with kids, being up super early and staying up super late and getting up at night with the kids, I felt like I needed a vacation too!
