Friday night as we were leaving the rehearsal a storm was blowing in and brought lots of rain and wind with it. Unfortunately, when we woke up Saturday morning, that rain had turned to sleet and snow and the beautiful blue sky and sunshine we had seen all week was gone. It was about 30 degrees with a 25-30 mph north wind and we knew we were going to FREEZE that evening in our dresses.
you can see the accumulation of snow on the roof of my parents’ house…their front steps were slick with ice
sleet under the tree and on the wooden swing…I thought this was the 1st day of Spring?!
I felt so sorry for Jillie because she had been praying all week long that God would provide warmth and sunshine on Saturday…but alas, the sleet and snow came. The weather wouldn’t have really been a big deal because the wedding was inside, but we were planning to take pictures outside prior to the wedding…mother nature had another plan. We had to change our plans at the last minute, but I think the pictures turned out beautifully.
Even though the weather wasn’t what she wanted, she thoroughly enjoyed every minute of her special day.
Wedding Morning…”I’m the Bride” coffee cup in hand!…She’s so happy!
The first thing we did on Wedding Day was have a bridal luncheon for Jillie at the home of the family she nannies for. Sara is such a sweet lady and loves Jillie so much and decided throw and “Lingerie Lunch” for Jillie and all of her family (girls only!) the morning of the wedding! The food was great, the company was great, and she got lots of great little gifts!
all of the delicious food!
cousins…Rachel, Jenna, Maggie (holding Elizabeth – the baby Jillie keeps), & Emma
After the Lingerie Lunch it was time for the Bridesmaids to start getting ready for the wedding and the aunts and guys started working at the ballroom. By late afternoon we were all in the dressing room in the building where the ballroom was to do make-up, hair touch-ups, and put on our dresses. We took pictures before the wedding, which was nice so we had plenty of time to enjoy ourselves at the reception.
Matt and I finally got an updated picture of ourselves!
I’d say we clean up pretty nicely…
There’s tons more wedding pictures that I want to post, but I’m waiting on my copy of the CD of pictures from the photographer…Jillie should be getting that to me soon…I hope!
