It has been a crazy, busy couple of weeks. The day finally came, this past weekend, my baby sister said ‘I do!’
For those of you who truly know me, you know I am completely in love with my sisters. This trip with them had its ups and its down, that’s for sure. From the two day wedding cake adventure, beads falling off a dress, lost necklaces, me bringing the bride the wrong earrings, the bride and groom still getting ready 15 minutes after starting time, a flower girl who wouldn’t flower, a ring bearer who disappeared for a minute during the ceremony, arguments, lots of agruments…hey, we are human, not perfect and I never said we always get along.
I knew there would be issues. No wedding goes absolutely according to plan. All of these things, I was prepared for. What I wasn’t prepared for however, was how absolutely beautiful she would be! Don’t get me wrong, I knew she would be beautiful. I was just not prepared for it.
I wasn’t prepared for how proud I would be watching my son walk her down the aisle because only he could give her away. He is her first true love after all.
I wasn’t prepared for her gorgeous smile and all the thoughts I had about everything I wanted to say to her about life. Most of which I’m sure she already knows.
And I wasn’t prepared for what should have been her Father/Daughter dance but instead was her Nephew/Aunt dance. I can’t imagine a more perfect moment then this one. And how Daddy must have been looking down, thinking how perfectly amazing this moment was.
The day was full of great memories. Every single person who had a part in making it happen, did an amazing job. A beautiful outdoor wedding in the middle of July in Missouri, is a hard thing to pull off. But, through all the issues that popped up and went wrong, there couldn’t have been a more beautiful bride EVER!
