My niece Abbey Kent got married yesterday to the love of her life, Randy Metzger. You could just see the love between them and know this is a marriage that will last forever, through good times and bad, etc. Randy, welcome to the family.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the ceremony to the reception...
Here is the groom grabbing a snack during pictures and holding the bride's bouquet. LOL!
A lot of the ideas throughout the wedding came from Pinterest! I love the idea they had for the guest book. Instead of a regular book, they printed a large photo and attached it to foam board and cut into puzzle sized squares for everyone to sign. Each had a number on the back so you could add it to where it was to go on the picture (using magnets). Very cool.
I thought the signs for the ring bearers were ADORABLE! Oh and I have to mention the flower girls were so CUTE too, down to their tulle/tutu dresses and gem studded healed shoes.
Kevin (the father of the bride) told me after the ceremony about his conversation before going down the aisle...
Abbey-Dad this is the moment I have been waiting for all my life.
Kevin-Abbey...I can't talk about this right now.
He was about to walk his baby down the aisle. So sweet.
Abbey and Randy just before saying "I do".
I was helping Hope with the bird seed baskets until Annie and Ally came out of the church.
And here comes the happy couple.
Well, I guess this picture will need a little back story...We are doing the alligator, which is done to "Takin Care of Business". The first time I remember doing this dance was at Jody's wedding (the bride's sister), so we felt like we had to keep the tradition going. It was a LOT of fun with all of us out there, but I must admit I have bruises and floor burns on my elbows and knees. It was crazy fun and would do it all over again. LOL!
As soon as I heard what their wedding colors were going to be, I knew what paper scraps I wanted to use for the card we would give them.
Here is that card and several others using the same papers.
Have a great Memorial Day. Prayers and thanks to all those who have/are/will serve our country.
