My Brother’s Wedding

To keep up, I posted about Thursday’s pre-wedding celebration & then about Friday’s wedding events yesterday. Today’s the day {well a week ago today was}~my brother got married! So thrilled to welcome Beth as my sister-in-law!

I cut the photos from this day down to 56 favorites! Here’s the day in eight photo collages beginning in the bridal suite with hair, makeup, & lunch.

Getting Prettier!

Mom & I got dressed in the bridal suite, I helped Beth get her dress all tied up before heading over the the room my parents had rented for the guys to chill in. Ten men crammed in one spot & all lookin’ good in their tuxes.

Pretty Bride & Handsome Groomsmen

I can’t wait to see the photographers shots of the ceremony. It was short & sweet complete with laughter & a few tears.

On to the party! The cocktail hour was in the hall ways beside the ballrooms. I was too busy chatting, eating & drinking to take any photos then. Welcome to the reception ~ gorgeous flowers, pretty cake, great lighting, fun table groups of friends & new friends.

The new Mr & Mrs, family table, toasts, cake, cousins, my plate

During dinner {I had chicken topped with crab meat}, Beth’s Dad, Lauren & my Dad gave heart-felt toasts.

First Dances

Soon after Beth & Steven opened up the dance floor with a so-appropriate-to-them Jerry Garcia song. Beth & her Dad danced next followed by my Mom & brother to a Beatles song. How cute did Beth’s niece & nephew look?!

Cake! and family dances

The cake wasn’t just pretty ~ it was tasty too! I tried a bit of my Dad’s banana chip slice & while randomly sitting just us, my brother & I shared a Neapolitan {strawberry, chocolate & white cake} slice.

Once the dancing got started it didn’t end until after 11p. I had the chance to dance with my Papa, brother & {once he got drunk enough} my husband!

Bouquet & Garter Tosses & Nana even made it onto the dance floor

So fun that they did both the bouquet & garter tosses. Our family friend Katie caught the flowers & Steven’s friend Ian had the garter fall into his hands.

TN Clogging & all smiles on the dance floor

Our good family friends originally from TN broke it down to Rocky Top! With waters all around, we ended the night with hugs & happy honeymoon to the new married couple!
