my little sister got married

By Moriah on November 21st, 2012

Last Friday we drove 12 hours down to Florida for my sister’s wedding weekend. We stayed at the Lighthouse; my parents rented three Coast Guard cottages for us, them, my grandparents, aunts, and the bridal wedding party. Whirlwind trip, we drove home Monday.

These are all photos I took, and I tried to choose ones for this post that together give an overall picture of her wedding…

My three little flower girls, right before we went up to the dressing room to get ready.

(One of) my beautiful sister(s):

These were during the photo session, pre-ceremony:

(Later on, there was a cocktail hour on this terrace while the wedding party was busy with post-ceremony photos.  Apparently there was a fabulous mocha punch I missed out on.)

My mom:

Looking down from the terrace:

Right after the ceremony & the beginning of family photos, Cassandra & Shane with my parents:

The Dad/Daughter dance, she chose this – fitting, no?

Candy bar for party favors:

Arianna, making sure we were watching and then running off to dance:

Arianna was a maniac – danced 1.5 hours nonstop.

Into the getaway car, and sparklers! (I LOVE her bouquet in this one!)

And, the very second we buckled her carseat:

The other day on the phone, my friend Lisa says to me, “so the big news today is Madeline got glasses??”

Me: “What?”

“Yeah! That was the first thing Charlie said when he climbed into the car: ‘Madeline got new glasses!’ She wore them all day!”

I knew instantly what she was talking about:

Those would be my sister’s FAKE play glasses Madeline SNUCK into her school bag. And apparently wore all day. What a riot!

My mom and I had gone through the girls’ college stuff from storage while she was here, and Madeline swiped them from the Goodwill pile. She sported them all day Wednesday (my kids don’t go to school on Wednesdays), even at Target, but I had drawn the line at church that night. But I had NO IDEA she had tucked them inside her backpack!

(I asked her teacher about it later. She said Madeline had told her they were fake and only wore them during breaks and was ‘very mature’ about it. hahaha)
