Carolyn’s Wedding (and Derek’s)

So the wedding was beautiful! It was very hot since we had it outside in August in about 100 degree weather. Luckily it was short and you quickly forgot how hot it was once inside in the cool air.
Here’s my take on the night.
I warn that most of the pictures are of my little family. Early on the battery light came on so I was being careful with what pictures I took but as the night progressed it just kept working and of course I was mostly around my little family so that’s who’s pictures I took.

Fun things that happened.
Carolyn waved to Lilah when she was walking down the isle with Derek.
I almost cried during the wedding but was able to control myself. I did start crying during the father daughter dance when both Carolyn and my dad were crying.
No one decorated their car. We were all so unprepared.

We went to their house Sunday to watch them open gifts and they got like four kitchen aid gadgets or attachments but no kitchen aid!

I did make the girl’s dresses and my friend Anna made mine.

    It looks like you all had a wonderful time. Your dress is beautiful! Tell your friend I think she did a great job! You and Carolyn look like you could be twins. She’s beautiful and I hope they are very happy. Where was the wedding at? I didn’t recognize it, at least to say, it didn’t look like Las Vegas to me!
    Are you ok? I haven’t heard from you since our last emails to eachother. I hope you’re not mad at me for talking to Sharee. I was just so worried about you and she was the best way for me to give you a hug myself without leaving my zip code, although I totally would in a heart beat if you ever called and told me you needed a hug and a shoulder!
    I have been keeping you and your sweet family in my heart and thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if there’s anything at all I can do for you, ok? I need to get going. I’ll talk to you later.
    I love you! Please forgive me and don’t be mad at me! I hope you know just how much I love you!
    Marcie

    You better get me copies faster then I got them to you from you baby shower. I am the worst at that stuff. Remind me I still have pictures from Lilah’s birthday next time I see you.

    Anna did such a good job on your dress that I forgot she was making it for you until I read this post! Great pictures.
