Can we talk about how gorgeous she is? I just kept thinking that she looked like some 1940's starlet.
|Yes I totally stole this from her photographers - hope they don't mind.|
It was held in her Dad's back yard, everyone was seated at tables with Sarah and Uncle Dave walking down the aisle between tables. Since Sarah and Chris were already married, they did a quick ceremony of the unity candle and some quick speeches.
The ceremony didn't last long, but of course I was that mom with the toddler who talked through the whole thing. Peanut was sitting on B's lap so I had Bug. He wanted down so he could run around; not even distracting him with Cheddar Bunnies was helping. Eventually he made his way over to B, kneeling on his lap facing him. The tiniest of hummingbirds flitted through the tent (seriously, it looked like a butterfly) when Bug shouted, "A hummin'bird!" We quietly confirmed when he started shouting, "Tweet tweet! Tweet tweet!" and smiling at B. It was one of those times where you couldn't help but smile which only encouraged him. Thank goodness the ceremony didn't last long or I would have been even more mortified. And then it was time to party!
We feasted on BBQ - at least everyone else did, I more or less inhaled mine because I was chasing Bambinos.
|It was a plaid kind of day for the little-boy cousins|
I didn't think it was possible for anyone on earth to be cuter than Sarah's husband Chris, but I think his Dad might be. He gave the funniest speech. And, I just love his English accent. I only talked to Chris's parents briefly near the end, but it seems as if Sarah married into a great family.
I didn't see much of the dances, but happiness just radiated from Uncle Dave as he danced with Sarah.
After cupcakes came dancing and of course the minute I mentioned dancing Peanut ran from the front yard to the back deck and joined right in. That boy loves him some music!
|Do you see the look of joy on his face?|
|For once I wanted to be on the other side of the camera. And this is the best we got.|
When my aunt, uncle and cousins came home, they were all chattering about what a great time they had and how much fun everyone was. I guess everyone was dancing - and we missed it! I think my family should have a fake wedding every summer because they're just so fun at weddings and I want B to experience it.
Or I guess we could just have dance parties. I bet my fam would be down for that.
