So yesterday I shared with you about my little sister moving to China… today I will share with you about my little cousin getting married. Again, keep in mind “little” does not necessarily mean that this person is smaller than me. Because regardless of my proud five feet and eight inches of height… I don’t come close to my towering cousins. But that’s beside the point. 😉
Us at Easter in 1994, us in 1991 just after he was born, and us in 2008 at my wedding. Could he be any cuter in that Easter shot? Suspenders and a bowtie before it was “trendy/hipster” to wear them. 🙂
Max and Laura getting married! It’s hard to tell with this poor quality, but they are both gorgeous red-heads! Laura’s hashtag since they got engaged has been #wedtheredheads which I think is pretty adorable. 🙂
It poured rain just before the ceremony, but held off for the most part long enough for them to say their “I do’s.” It drizzled here and there which is why I definitely left my DSLR in the car and used a phone for photos instead. It was a beautiful ceremony, though. I loved that they included the words “I choose you as my one and only” in their vows. 🙂
The family minus my cousin Nick’s wife (Kelsey) who was off tending to bridesmaid duties when this spontaneous shot was taken. I just cannot believe that my little Maxie is old enough to be married (which is funny because he’s older now than I was when I got married, ha!).
Hands down, my favorite part of the night was when the dancing began. Christopher took a video of just us girls dancing at one point, but don’t be fooled! We were all out there (including my 87 year old grandfather who was probably the best dancer of us all!). We laughed so much and it was fabulous. I will remember this night always. But for your viewing pleasure (and to prove that you don’t have to be a good dancer to have fun)… here’s myself, my sisters, my mom, my aunt, and my niece dancing in a circle while we each take turns dancing in the middle. 🙂
Ps. did you watch until the end to see my reaction to a song I like? I had no idea Christopher was videoing any of this so that’s apparently my totally normal reaction when a song I like comes on. Christopher said I do that pretty much every time (even in the car when a song I like comes on the radio), haha!
Christopher and I danced a couple of songs together, but nearly every one of them (even the slow romantic ones) were interrupted by our niece who decided she too needed to dance with us, haha! At one point, I stepped back and let her have her Uncle Kistopher all to herself and someone got this sweet shot of them:
There are so many things that I love about my husband. I talk a lot about how much fun we have together and how much we laugh together. But something else I really love about him is his gentleness. Kids love him for it. And it melts my heart watching him dance not only just with Makenzie as you see in the photo above, but also with our nephew Wesley who was too shy to come out onto the dance floor. So Christopher went to him and danced with him on the sidelines so he too could feel included. #meltmyheart #suchagoodman #isitweirdtousehashtagsinablogpost? 😛
