I thought I'd share what I could.
Take into account the fact that since we were all in the wedding, no one had real camera's.
Also take into account the fact that even if we did have camera's, the photographer had a strict "don't interrupt my work with your flash*" rule.
So we were left with Cousin Amy's iPhone pictures.
Which are fabulous.
For cell phone pics.
I'm certainly not complaining.
So, without further ado...
The Cousins - 20 minutes till go time
The Fleet Girls...including the soon-to-be one
In another life, we were super models.
Mini Meltdown - Over Chapstick. She takes after me.
And finally: The FAM
I wish we had more to show, and I'm sure in a few weeks we will**....
But for now...this is what we got.
I'd also love to give you all the gory details to make it as realistic as possible for you.
Like the fact that the nearest hotel to the church was at least 40 minutes away.
And the boys had to pick up their tuxes in Grand Rapids, which was 1.5 hours away from our hotel.
Not to mention a late night baseball game followed by an all-nighter when the slide show that just wouldn't run took every bit of a full night's sleep to fix.
Not to mention a very stressed out bride and enough christmas lights to don the Griswold's house 8 times.
Oh, and did I mention, the midnight drive across the PA Turnpike that we thought would never end....
But I think I will leave out all the dirty details and let you enjoy the pretty - if fuzzy - stuff.
Because I'm uber positive like that.
At the end of the day, they were married, it was beautiful, and you'd have never known anything ever went wrong!
And, after all, I gained a new sister!
So all in all. It was a success.
*She literally barked at my 75 year old grandfather about him taking pictures. Boy, did that go over well. Let this be a lesson to you photog's...flashes may be annoying, but there are NICE ways to take care of that situation.
**If you want to see the photog's sneak peek, you can check those here. And then come back to tell me how gorgeous my new SIL is.
