My Brother Got Married.

We had a great time last weekend at Dave and Erin's wedding. It was awesome to see he and his bride so happy. I don't have a lot of pictures of them together on the actual wedding day, but I had a great view for the main event. A camera might have been distracting during the ceremony, but I didn't hesitate to take pictures during the rehearsal, so just imagine them looking all fancy and such.

I also have to say that I enjoyed being a bridesmaid and having access to both the girls' room
and the boys' room. And everywhere else people were. I took plenty of pictures in the few
hours before the wedding and as people started arriving.

Seriously, I don't think Dave ever stopped smiling.

They said 'I do', we cheered, smiled for many many pictures, and then we were all off to eat and dance all night (and Claire did an awesome job being the flower girl).

August is for Weddings

By now I think everyone has seen many pictures of Tim and Josie's wedding, but here are my favorite two. (more here)

All of my pictures are of everything leading up to the ceremony, with none of the wedding itself. Milena tired of the Baby Bjorn quickly at the ceremony, so I mostly walked around with her. And at the reception she was bombarded by 300 people in one tiny room having a great time (being loud, as they should), and was very upset about it. Teresa snagged her, Carrie rescued me, and Claire went off somewhere to have a good time. Try as we might, we couldn't get Milena to settle down, so she and I headed home for a quiet evening. However, we had a great time celebrating and catching up with the extended family all weekend. Definitely a great trip.

This weekend we have a break, but we'll be back at it next weekend for my brother's wedding. Mike and I are standing up and Claire is the flower girl. Milena will be spending a quiet evening somewhere other than the reception. We are very much looking forward to it.

We're also looking forward to closing on our house in two weeks. I still can't believe we got it. Mike and I drove by the other day and saw the garage full of boxes. Looks like they really are planning on moving out. I guess we should start packing up too!
