This past weekend, we were again blessed with an amazing gathering filled with family, friends, and celebration.
My darling niece Kelli married her soulmate Sam, and it was an unforgettable occasion.
Proud parents of the bride. My handsome brother and gorgeous sister-in-law. Love you guys.
The bride bears a striking resemblance to her mother, and looks angelic on her father's arm. Such a sweet few moments.
These two work together every day. It shows in the strength of their bond, and the richness of their relationship.
The Boy took his duties seriously. Actually I think he was fighting fatigue at this moment. A few minutes after this photo, he came and sat in my lap. And fell soundly asleep.
Oh, the pressure...
The Girl was just happy to put on a party dress.
And she looked oh so lovely.
Humor goes a long way in a relationship, and these two are good examples. They are both funny. And kind. And, well...pretty. Sorry, Sam, but it's true.
The three girls in this picture are sisters. My brother is very lucky.
Cocktail hour music.
So many lovely details.
Love love love this.
Adorable favor bags. I may have ended up with more than one of these.
As night fell, the scene was truly magical.
Outside... at night... in November. Oh, how I love San Diego!
Two giant screens showed photos and videos. And by the end of the evening, the videographers already had put together a video of the day, up to and including the ceremony. With music. We were all very impressed.
The big send-off. Those were the biggest sparklers I have ever seen!
Congratulations, Kelli and Sam. I love you so very much.
