Mark and Lindsey picked August 3rd, and it was a gorgeous day. They were married in Gresham, on Lindsey's family's property.
We arrived about an hour before the ceremony, and contrary to what I thought I might find, Mark appeared to be as calm as could be. (I was a nervous wreck, so I thought Mark would be the same.) He even pulled out a little Blue Steel.
We had time to take pictures, and the kids got to play for a while.
They couldn't get enough of this swing.
Henry patiently waited for his turn too.
I tried to get the cousins all together, but this was the best I could do.
Lindsey and her sisters did most of the work, and everything turned out beautifully.
I'm so glad my aunts could be there - Julie, Lorraine, and Lynne.
The look on my brother's face is priceless.
And Lindsey was a stunning bride.
Her dad preformed the ceremony.
This is one of my favorites.
And then it was all done, and the kids could run and play on that amazing property.
Then, of course, it was time for pictures. The girls were in heaven following the bride around.
Thanks to my sister for taking such beautiful pictures of the kids.
After pictures we had a tasty dinner in the beautiful tent.
After dinner and cake was dancing!
Henry dumped water down his shirt, so Grandpa snuggled him in a blanket to keep him warm. Henry sure loves his "Buh-pa".
At one point, one of Lindsey's nephews asked Claire to dance. It was the sweetest thing. She was all shy and embarrassed about it after, but you could tell she was thrilled.
Claire wasn't the only one wearing her dancing shoes. Henry got his fair share of action on the dance floor as well.
For a few brief moments, Claire and Henry even danced together.
It was a beautiful night. We are so happy to have Lindsey as a part of our family, and I am especially glad to see Mark so happy.
