The main reason that we ventured to Michigan with a newborn was my sister's wedding. I was the Matron of Honor and Ryan was an usher. Jack was the adorable baby that my great grandmother would not put down, even when her arms went numb from holding him. Abbey planned a 40's ish style wedding and it was beautiful. She had some ladies from her church help with the decorations and they turned out great! They had a dessert reception with a full ice cream bar, chocolate fountain and chocolate cupcakes.
The bride and groom were giddy happy. There were not a lot of tears at this wedding, as opposed to mine where my husbands SOBBED the entire time, thus leaving not a dry eye in the whole place. But that was o.k... cause everyone was just, happy. For those of you who do not know my sister, she is an amazing songwriter and singer. She is about to release her second cd and you should buy it. Seriously. Go to abbeyandrew.com and have a listen. Well, she decided not to sing at her wedding. She sang at my wedding. She took a poem that Ryan had written to me and turned it into a beautiful song. That was another reason why there were tears at my wedding. Kurt(the new hubby) and Abbey wrote a song together and just played it instrumental. While Abbey played the piano and Kurt played the guitar there were slides of scripture verses about marriage. It was really beautiful.
Here are a few pics of the event...
