My brother got married this past weekend to one of my favorite gals in the whole world. We were so excited to officially welcome Kyla into the family even though we have considered her part of the family for a really long time. It was a perfect day and so much fun!
We stayed with Ryan and Kyla for a couple of nights before the festivities began. Laney had lots of fun hanging with her aunt and uncle, but I think her favorite part was hanging with Briggs, their dog.
The festivities began on Friday with mani/pedis and the rehearsal dinner. We had some trouble getting Laney to walk down the aisle during practice until the rehearsal was over, so it wasn’t looking good for the actual event.
I did my best to enjoy the day Saturday and not worry about capturing moments on my camera. I did get a few photos on my camera and quite a few on my iPhone. The photos aren’t perfect, but I am glad I have them to remember the special day.
The morning was a bit stressful for me. Laney would not cooperate for photos with the photographer. She kept taking her flower crown off. And she refused to walk down the aisle. But that’s OK. I had to remind myself she isn’t even two. And as it usually does, everything worked out perfectly in the end, I had a super special moment carrying her down the aisle to meet Kyle at the bottom. I got pretty misty-eyed walking down holding my baby girl and thinking about the last time I walked down an aisle to meet Kyle six years ago. And (much thanks to her grandparents for keeping her occupied) she only interrupted the ceremony once trying to get Jacob’s attention. And I may be biased, but I think she looked adorable – snack cup and all. :)
We had so much fun on the party bus. It was definitely one of my favorite parts of the day. Kyla’s sister and Jacob gave some awesome maid-of-honor/best man speeches. They totally rocked it! Then we danced the night away. Laney kept signing “more dancing” every time the song ended. She boogied on the dance floor for an hour or more, and then she just decided she was done and ready to go “home.”
The next day we had breakfast at the hotel. Laney has some very important phone calls to make.
It was such an awesome weekend. Especially with these three cuties…
Congratulations, Ryan and Kyla! We love you! And I hope you are enjoying the beach. :)
