Wedding Day!

“Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts."
William Shakespeare


The Wedding Elves worked their magic for the big day...


A beautiful bride...




A proud auntie...

The ceremony was perfect...



Family and friends came together to celebrate...







My brother gave the best Father of the Bride toast I've ever heard (and I mean in the movies or in real life)!!!
He had everyone's attention...
(this is my sister-in-law also mother of the bride and my sister, such a great moment)...


Lots of applause and not a dry eye in the house...

Some of my favorite pics of the day...




This may have been my favorite time of the whole day. We had our own impromptu after party. Everyone was gone except this small handfull of some of my favorite people: my twin nephews Kevin and Karl along with Kevin's girlfriend Jessica, Karl's wife Molly, my husband Gary, Brother-in-law Stuart, sister Sis, brother and Father of the Bride Dan, sister-in-law and mother of the bride Nancy... We opened another bottle of wine, another champagne, made some chicken quesidillas, lit some candles, made some coffee and closed the place down...


Thank you Tamar and Charles for letting us be such a big part of your special day! We love you... Aunt Laurie & Uncle Gary...

Your photos tell the whole story. A life time of memories were made that day and they will always remember how Aunt Laurie made their day special.

Laurie,

Everything looks so beautiful. I LOVE the flower arrangements in mason jars. My closest friend got engaged over the weekend and wants an outdoor wedding at her grandparents home. You are so lucky to have been such a huge part of your nieces special day.

Hugs,
Jennifer

Her dress is exquisite, the pictures are fabulous and your home was lovely, as always.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, what a beautiful wedding! It's my idea of the perfect wedding. The PERFECT WEDDING! If my husband and I didn't elope in Tahoe, this is what I would have wanted. Not saying the sheet cake our friends bought at Safeway - and then we ate in the lounge at Ceasar's wasn't fun... but this wedding would have been the wedding of my dreams.
Thanks for sharing!
