Julie, my sister friend from WA, shared photos she took at the wedding. Her perspective was different from others. I'm thankful to all who took photos and shared.
Practicing coming down the stairs before the wedding - KICK - step - nice and slow
Some may be wondering about the black hair fripperies....Arielle and I purchased them in Korea. We weren't sure we'd wear them but in the end decided it was a fun touch. Hats were essential formal wear in the 1940's.
Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles were escorted in to their seat. Then our daughters. Michael and I began the procession down the stairs. This is a beautiful, historic hotel.
Then came groomsmen - Julie got some good ones of our sons
|Zander - so determined to get this right - and he did|
|Jamin - Best Man|
|Josiah as Groom|
Stacia was very intent on walking to the beat, getting down the stairs, and flinging flowers. Being in this wedding will be a treasured memory for her. She loved everything: dress shopping, wearing grown up jewelry, hair fussing and the ceremony. She WAS nervous.
