The Weekend

The wedding truly was a lot of fun.  I mean, who doesn't enjoy getting all dressed up and seeing their man dressed even better?  This picture is from right after the mass, taken in front of church.

There was a LOT involved in the weekend which meant a lack of sleep.  When I finished cleaning at 10 PM Thursday night, I just stayed up until Josh and Doug arrived at 1:30.  The alarm went off early on Friday so we could go help at the hall, then we had to pick up their tuxes.  I rode along for something to do.  A quick stop at my house to grab what we needed, and we hung out at Josh's pool until the rehearsal dinner.  After that, there seemed to be a mini-after party at my house.

The wedding was wonderful.  Really and truly.  Dan and Amber have been together for a LONG time - 7 years I believe!  It was so nice to be present to see the start of their marriage, there was so much love in the room.

So, you see the nice picture from above.  Immediately after, this one was taken.
They were trying to do that while we were getting the first picture taken, but were kind enough to wait.  Guess they got thirsty during church!

Josh's portion of the toast was to begin singing "That Loving Feelin'" a la Top Gun style.  Later in the evening, the song came over the speakers, and the boys all started singing it to Amber.

It was a fun evening with a lot of dancing.  Josh was on the dance floor almost the whole night, I'm not quite as much of a dancer.  If I sat down, a groomsman was usually trying to pull me back up.  It really was fun though.
 One more picture, cause I think it's my favorite from the night!
all pictures are from my camera, and were either taken by me or Chantelle, Doug's date

Ugh, I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to get to reading these, but I HAD to comment on this because you look amazing and SO HAPPY! I can feel the happy through those pictures! :-)

(And I have to say, I like his hair -- my husband just did his like that and ohmygosh I am even more attracted to him now than I was before!)
