Mimi and Trey Got Married

Girls in white dresses with chocolate brown sashes,
Maria Blanco painted our eyelashes,
Gorgeous balloons with sunshine on their strings,
These were a few of my favorite things.

Burgundy nails from the manis and pedis,
Luncheons prepared by the Pattis and Bettis,
Ws everywhere, dropped silver rings,
These were a few of my favorite things.

Friday's rehearsal and seeing our family,
Friends and great cocktails and golf that was scrambly,
Beautiful couple fulfilling their dreams,
These were a few of my favorite things.

Four thousand roses, but really, who's counting?
Beautiful bridesmaids and groomsmen were clowning,
Eating and laughing and dancing the swing,
These were a few of my favorite things.

Ed taking photos with all of us laughing,
Pics on the fire truck, the fountain was splashing,
It all will be featured in this magazine,
These were a few of my favorite things.

Now it's over,
What will we do?
It makes me so sad.
But we'll always remember our favorite things,
And that will make us so glad.

As more pictures get uploaded today and throughout the week, I will post more photos...  You do not want to miss them, because I am not exaggerating in the slightest about the roses.  Really, everything was spectacular from my sister in her amazing gown right down to the slightest detail - like the hors d'oeuvres.  My girls did an amazing job as flower girls, too.  I'll write more of a "narrative" of the weekend after gymnastics today (during nap!).  I have a new laptop waiting for me at the office (hooray!!), so I'll need to set that up and get all the pictures transferred.  

Of course, my camera battery pooped out before we even got to the ceremony.  Oh well.  Ed should get his uploaded today, and he said I could put them on Ye Ol' Blog.  If I'm in your feed reader, please don't get annoyed with the frequent posts over the next few days.  I want to do only a few pictures per post so that they don't take a thousand years to load.  Thanks, Barbara Darling, for the pictures above!

Geez, I guess we now know where MG gets her scary smile and avoidance of looking directly at the camera.

The only thing I can think of that I was probably looking at was the fire truck and hoping Megan was holding on tight during the turn.

What a wonderful wedding celebration in ALL ways! Just amazing!!
Course I thought the Flower Girls were awesome since I'm one of the Grandmothers in Grandmaland.
God Bless Mimi and Trey in their marriage. Beautiful couple.

Sorry bout that BJ! If I would have realized you weren't looking at the camera, I would have taken another one. I am sure Ed got some great ones too!
