I told you all about one of my besties here
well Saturday was the wedding
and what a time we had!
their invitation was unique ~ different
but oh so cool
the sun was shining ~ there was a cool breeze
well more like a cold wind
but no rain ~ a perfect day for a wedding!
this is my corsage as Kim and I passed out the programs
at the ceremony
we piled into the limo on route for pictures
and I caught Shigeki looking down
"what's that shiny thing??!!"
this was the place we went for pictures
it was beautiful
I stayed back and let the photographer do his thing
this is Darren ~ aka the Best Man and the bride's brother
there were touches of cherry blossoms throughout the
reception venue and Andrea told the story of how they met
during her thank you speech
the cake was gorgeous and delicious
little touches ~ it is all about the little things
the girls ~ Vickie & Tanya looking lovely
the master of ceremonies Jeff and the "Better Man" Steve
another brother of the bride
we laughed so much ~ this family is fantastic
some of my favorite people ever
this is Andrea's parents ~ Allyson & Jack
they are a super couple
Spending the night with some of my best friends
was the greatest time
Andrea, Kim, Lori and I all met when we worked together
we became fast friends
we were single together ~ partied together
laughed together and cried together
this is Kim and her husband Pat
Lori with her husband Brian
and then Trevor and I
these were taken at the end of the night ~ I think we held up pretty well!
the Father ~ Daughter dance
and yes I cried ~ the song was beautiful
they dance to
"I Loved Her First"
then we danced ~ and boy did we dance!
this dance is a tradition
we did "the hitchhiker" to the song
"Knock on Wood"
we have done it at all of our weddings
and Andrea's was the last
so glad we could all be there to do it!
me ~ after a couple and having a very good time!
Sunday I slept in ~ and my knees still hurt from dancing
I am getting old!
so here are the Mr. & Mrs
and I could not be happier for them!
