The Wedding

I spent yesterday morning at the church where the wedding was held, helping to set up and decorate. After rushing back to the hotel to change we arrived at the church and saw my brother in the parking lot.

I took the opportunity to snap a nice photo of them together.

The church is a historic landmark in Long Beach and the windows and woodwork were beautiful. The flowers for the pews and the candlelabra were calalilies and ivy.

The stained glass window is beautiful!

Pew flowers...

Mother of the bride and Mother of the groom...

The bride was radiant and very relax and excited.

A whispered moment during the service.

The kiss...Rachel was taking photos at this point. Didn't she do a great job?

My brother's family.

Father - daughter dance...

The groom and friends dancing...

Pretty little tables...

Brides bouquet...

Flowers for the reception...I did these from flowers I purchased at Costco! They were in quart sized canning jars with ribbons...12 floral arrangements.

Mini cheesecakes, cream puffs, chocolate fountains, cake....perfect!

It was a lovely day.
