My brother-in-law got married on Saturday. I have tons of pictures, but most of you are on Facebook….so check them out there!
The wedding was SO fun. Brett officiated the wedding, and he did an awesome job.
Caleb and Chloe were the ringbearer and flower girl. They got to ride in a horse and carriage with the bride and her dad, which they loved! They were so cute all dressed up! I was unsure if they would make it down the aisle, but they did. But I had to walk with them :). I tried to send them on their way, and Caleb turned around, and sternly said, “Mommy, COME!” He was so precious!! I loved that he really wanted to do it, but he still needed me.
The absolute best part of the wedding (besides gaining a new sister-in-law) was the proud look on Brett’s face when his two older kids walked down the aisle. Even the bride’s mom commented how proud Brett looked. (On a side note, I asked Brett if he planned to officiate Chloe’s wedding. His response: “Are you kidding me? No way! I will not be able to make it through because I will be crying the whole time”. The poor guy will be a mess on Chloe’s wedding day.)
Another funny moment: We have been telling our kids for weeks that we are moving to Florida. Well, we flew to Tampa for the wedding. So Caleb thought we had moved to Florida. We got in our rental car, and Caleb said, “Wow, I love our new car. I knew we would give our car back to Mimi.” Then we arrived at our hotel, and Caleb said, “I just love my new room. And I can reach my new sink….” He went on and on about how much he loved his new home. So, I guess no matter where we live, Caleb will be happy!
At the reception, Caleb danced the night away with his second cousins, Diana and Faith. He was so stinkin’ adorable. I could not stop smiling.
Chloe danced, too, but not as much as Caleb.
Though I am blogging about my highlights, the wedding was actually not all about me. LOL!! Though I did color coordinate our outfits. I was quite proud of that. My shirt for the rehearsal did not totally match, but it was close enough. I even bought Luke a tuxedo onesie to match Caleb and Brett.
The wedding was beautiful. My sister-in-law did a fabulous job on it. I love weddings, and theirs was awesome. Oh, they totally surprised everyone by choreographing their first dance. They started off dancing to a slow song, then it changed to “Hot Blooded”. It was AWESOME! So unlike my brother-in-law but such a great demonstration of his love for his bride. It made me smile for hours.
Traveling with all 5 of us was actually quite pleasant. The two older kids did so well on the plane, and Luke slept the whole time. Nursing next to a college guy on the plane was a little embarrassing, but other than that, traveling was great. I was pleasantly surprised. My kids rock!!
