Adam (my brother) and Katie’s wedding was wonderful! They had great weather, a fantastic turnout and everything went just the way they planned!
We started the day by getting my hair done…which quite frankly, I spent way too much money on for the atrocity that ended up on my head. Thankfully I had a couple cute items for the girls to add to my hair later to make it look a little better.
Here I am with Crazy-Hair-Lady.
After the hair debacle, I went home to feed Maddie lunch and put her down for an early nap. She went right to sleep and I couldn’t believe it! Then Chuck and I got our fancy wedding clothes on and his sister (Paige) came over to wait for Maddie to get up to bring her to the wedding.
Chuck and I headed to pictures. I think they went well. Adam and Katie picked some photographers they know. Adam went to school with one of them. Erin and Andi were very nice!
The beautiful bride!
Then Maddie arrived, we got her in her dress and it was wedding time! Maddie even made it down the isle….with some coercing from Paige. But she walked down the isle with my other brother, Charlie. She didn’t wear her adorable sparkly shoes…but who cares! She went down the isle!
After the ceremony, there were more pictures. Adam and Katie didn’t want to see each other before she walked down the isle. So we did group pictures after the ceremony.
Maddie loved collecting leaves and other treasures in her flower girl basket.
And a couple of the three (well, technically four) of us.
After pictures, we headed to the reception. Maddie sat with Paige while Chuck and I sat at the head table. Maddie did great through dinner and dessert, but didn’t make it too much longer. It had been a long day, so Paige took her home where Chuck’s mom was there to put her to bed so Paige could go home to her husband and daughter.
Chuck and I stayed a little longer, but after I stuffed my face with the delicious dinner, I was stuffed and my dress was uncomfortably tight. Plus, I wasn’t feeling well with my cough and cold. So we headed home fairly early.
Oh…and this is what I looked like after Chuck and his mom got all the crap out of my hair.
The families and friends continued to dance the night away and I heard everyone had a wonderful time.
Adam and Katie then took a mini honeymoon to South Dakota for some sigh seeing and time away. They want to go on a cruise at some point, too. But they said they had a wonderful trip with lovely weather!
Here are the few other pictures that I have.
And when Adam went back to work, his coworkers had a little surprise for him. How funny!
Congratulations to “The Norlings!” I am so happy for both of you and I am excited Katie is officially part of the family. I already referred to her as my sister and Maddie knows her as “Auntie Katie!” I love you both!
