My Big Day
Alright enough sap...here are some of the moments I speak of. If you hate pictures of happiness (and a lot of them)...please close your browsers now.
Rich's kids did not attend. We wished with all of our hearts that they could have been there. We know that we did everything in our power to make that happen and it just didn't. We missed them, and love them, but it wasn't going to ruin our beautiful day.
It was a beautiful ceremony.
The reception was so much fun, and the food was so good. Rich and I spent most of the afternoon decorating it and it turned out great.
My theme was family, so I decorated the tables with pictures of our families. I made the frames and they really turned out great and everyone enjoyed looking at all the pictures. I must publicly apologize though, my brother Ryan's families frame and photo got left at home...sorry guys!!
But the most important part of the day was sharing it with very special people.
Our families are the greatest. To have Rich's sister, and his brother and family there was so special. They all welcomed me into their family and I am so greatful. My sister-in-laws Michelle and Stacia took all the pictures (with help from Nikol and Mates), and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
I am so blessed to have the kind of family I have. They are so loving and generous and have taken Rich in and made him feel a part of this great big family. Sharing this day with them was a dream come true. I love and miss them so much.
It was a beautiful, perfect, day. Filled with love, laughter, family, and moments etched on my heart forever.
I am truly blessed.
