The Wedding

Now that the wedding is over,
I can finally share some of the details.
Cascade Falls
 The wedding and ceremony were held at Patapsco Valley State Park.
If you've read older posts on this blog,
you might remember the name of the park.
My great-uncle "Pepop
was once the superintendent here.
Bloede Dam
I spent a lot of time here as a kid too.
And one of my grandmother's favorite photos:
l to r: my brother, my grandmother, my sister and me
was taken at this park.
So it made sense to have it here.
 I had my custom made wedding shoes.
Since the wedding took place on flag day
and all bride's need something blue
I went with the blue and red theme.
The wedding date is embroidered on the side. 
Yes, I know I'm wicked cool.  
 There was the arranging of the arbor.
The arbor was built by Big E.
We cut the the branches for it ourselves
 from trees needing to be cleared from the fence line at home.
The day of the ceremony it was realized that the arbor wasn't quite sturdy enough,
so my dad and brother helped with those corner supports you see in the back.
 My sister did the flower arranging.
She actually did all the actual hands on arranging-
I just gave instruction on what flowers went into what arrangements. 
(from what I heard, my brother also helped with the flower arranging on the arbor)
My brother Lunchbox being cool- in my gardening gloves.
There was setting up of the chairs.
And by chairs I mean straw bales.
The finished product for the ceremony.
I scored those 2 large hydrangeas last minute.

The Brat Child looking serious.
The Brat Child looks so solemn
and Baby X is hanging onto the wagon with both hands.
I just now realized that my dad wore his sunglasses.

Here's the first look.
 There was the ceremony
 Midge sang "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri
 Then Big E surprised me with a song "Grow Old Along With Me"
Then we kissed.

Tomorrow I'll share the other photos.
