Awesome! I especially love the beaker centerpieces (wish I'd thought to use them) and the hot dog stand!

Mmmmm hot dogs....

Congratulations to your sis and her hubby!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this! Spill, Haven...did you loan out your veil for her something borrowed?!

I love it! A beautiful wedding and your sister seems like such an interesting and intelligent person (the apples didn't fall far away from each other!).

Awww, thanks for all your kind words about my sissy's wedding, ladies!

Sillyberry--You're so sweet. I think she's pretty amazing, but she's my sister so I suppose I'm a bit biased . . .

Thing--You make me blush. ::)

Violet and VC--Good eye, ladies! You are correct, she wore my veil as her something borrowed. I couldn't *give* it to her because, well, what would I wear around the house with my gown when DH is out of town? :cheeky:

Porridge--I definitely have photographer envy. Her photogs were amazing.

chemgirl--The hotdogs were perfect at the end of the night. I think they were a good idea for all the guests who took full advantage of the bar, as well. Soaked up some of that alcohol . . .

VC--Thank you! And yes, I see the resemblance, too. In real life we don't often think we look alike, but there were a couple pictures where I thought "Wait? Why am I wearing a white dress at Allie's wedding?"

Thank you everyone! I'm so happy they had such a beautiful day.

What a pretty family you guys are! I loved the shot of your sister yelling towards the camera. Thanks for sharing.

How did it go with your wisdom teeth, by the way? Did you manage okay?

Thank you, MsC!

Oy, the wisdom teeth! I had them yanked the day AFTER the wedding, and I'm really glad I waited and wasn't post-removal for the wedding. I had a weird reaction to the vicodin, it made me weepy and sleepy, and then I got dry socket in two of the removal sites. It was bad. I was a weepy, lethargic lump of pain for a while there. I think the dry socket was my fault because I have a compulsion to over-clean my teeth in general, so I probably did exactly that with my wisdom teeth. BUT, I'm so happy I had them all removed and I will never have to go through the pain that the ******* tooth gave me again. YAAAAAAY!!!!

Oh, and I ate nothing but cottage cheese for a couple days and my complexion was AMAZING. Seriously: cottage cheese, it's the new Noxzema. :cheeky:

I love your sister's dress btw - is it a marissa? I think i have two friends who wore the same one and it looked fabulous on them and on your sister!!! If I had been married at a warm time of the year, I would have loved to wear chiffon - it moves so nicely.

I think so, Violet! You have a good eye. I love her dress, it was so beautiful, and you're right--when she walked it looked like it just floated around her, as if she was a vision in a dream or something.

Thank you, Kitty and JStar!

Gypsy--You're so sweet, thank you. It was a great night, and the quality of these photos has me thinking that the way we frame our memories of things is almost as important as the memories themselves. I feel like these photos have helped cement this day as a gorgeous, dream of a night in my mind.

Thank you, Fiery! And yes, you are correct. These two have been together since my sister was a junior in high school, and her husband was a senior. It's been over nine years, and they're only 25 and 26 years old! I have some amazing pictures of them together from their very awkward adolescent years . . . :devil:

Blackpaw--Thank you! That picture at the top is amazing, isn't it? That's actually a shot of their ketubah, it's this beautiful cut-out laid over a watercolor. I love it.
