a joining of not two, but five hearts.
When Chloe and I met Kevin and Chayse in 2005, the kids were just three and six months old. Almost instantly, we created an unbreakable bond, and a new little family. A year later, a happy surprise. A baby sister!
A couple more years flew by.
Wedding bells rang August 23, 2008.
Since I'm the world's biggest procrastinator and have yet to print any of these amazing images from the big day, I had fun browsing through them again today!
Kevin and I planned and executed almost every single aspect of this weekend, with the help our great families and friends.
Both moms and all sisters helped me pull off the flower arrangements- centerpieces and bouquets, and the M monogram hanging on the entry gate.
I did the stationary (with the exception of the actual invitations), including save-the-dates, place cards, programs, and menus. Also, the table settings, the favors, and all the dessert baking... plus
Kevin did the stunning electrical job. We used over 150 white paper lanterns!
We pre-mixed all of the drinks ourselves (I think I hand-squeezed about 765,893 limes for mojitos), and created a huge play list on our iPod to blast from the speakers hidden throughout the yard.
My talented friend, Tegan took over when I was forced to stop working and actually get in to the limo bus headed for the church. I knew I was leaving everything in good hands.
It was perfect. Simple, relaxed, FUN, and so us!
I want to do it all over again, and not change a thing.
