Sweet Mazen burst into tears after the ceremony because he thought my dad was “giving me away” to Thomas. Such a tender moment of child innocence.
We assured him that things would be just as usual in a few days, with us and Gus all together. A few high fives put a smile back on his face.
Check out that new RING! I can just hear her saying “mmmm hmmm!”
When our families joined in, we took a few group photos of everyone together.
Happy birthday today to our siblings, who share a bday!!!
While we took photos, our guests enjoyed cocktail hour.
During pictures we were able to get in a few of our passed appetizers. These pimento cheese biscuits were out of this world!
Sadly, I didn’t get a bacon wrapped date, but this photo of them looks mouth watering! : )
Snacks for the children were more familiar goldfish! : )
We knew we didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony, so we used cocktail hour for photo time. I loved being one-on-one with my new husband for a while, and it made our time away together even more special.
My favorite moments of the day were when we went down to the hidden lake and sat on the dock. So much of a wedding day is filled with greetings, hugs, and talking – it was so wonderful just to sit and rest in each other’s arm for a moment and listen to the birds chirping… and the photographers snapping away! : )
I hope we can have dinner or an overnight at the Clifton Inn every anniversary and spend some time on this dock thinking about how special our wedding day was!
After I had my dress bustled, we made our entrance into the reception as Mr. and Mrs.!
