I can’t believe this little guy stayed there during the whole ceremony! Obviously he liked Devon a lot! Or he just really liked the awesome boutonniere I made… ;o)
The wedding was over and then it was time to eat! And there was a whole lot of delicious food to be had thanks to all of the guests!
The kids played for a bit and worked up an appetite before eating…
Elsie was so excited about Zack and Tatum getting married! Zack is her favorite!
The maid of honor and the best man both gave very nice toasts to the bride and groom. I am so thankful that my kids have been blessed by having such fantastic friends!
And because they love me and know how I feel about dancing, they only did a father-daughter and first dance. Thanks, you two! It made me feel extra special that I didn’t have to dance at your wedding… ;o) But you two looked adorable!
And Stella was pretty excited that there was dancing she could do at the reception! Thanks to Dawson and the rest of the dancers for making one little 5-year-old feel pretty like one of the “big kids”!
And just like that, it was time to throw birdseed and for the bride and groom to go off on their honeymoon. Zack planned a surprise stay at a nice bed & breakfast in St Helens instead of a night at their new empty apartment. Way to go, Zack!
Elsie was so excited to send them off and throw her birdseed. But when the time came, she was so overwhelmed that she just watched them as they walked by and then dumped her packet of birdseed on the ground. :o)
Then it was over. And like most things, getting ready is so much more fun than cleaning up. Unless you are the ones who got the job of building a giant campfire and burning all the garbage. I wish I had taken a picture of it, but I was so busy cleaning and packing things up that I didn’t have a chance.
When it was all said and done, it was a very wonderful day and we all slept really well that night!
