The Wedding...

...did I tell you it was beautiful?

I'm sure I did, but here's a few pre-ceremony pics to prove it.

We were quite excited when the flowers started to roll in!!
(Yes, that's my excited face!)

TeacherGirl's wedding was in the heart of Chicago, so I did miss having pictures of Maggie at our home. 
But I have to admit, we were treated like royalty at the Westin River North. 
And having a weekend of room service wasn't bad. 

My friend Larry at Bloomingfields did a beautiful job.
Maggie loves everything pink, so I knew her flowers would be gorgeous and very pink!

Little Anna's basket...

That's my pink rose bouquet on the left! I was quite excited to have my own bouquet!! 
It's been a long time since I carried one.

I've pinned many a flower on this guy throughout the years!

Of course the boys needed help...some things never change.

Carolyn took care of the groom...does he look nervous?
I think he looks calm...and very happy to be marrying our TeacherGirl!

Bryan and his childhood friend Jack, now the Best Man!
Time flies.

Waiting for the trolley...

Flower girl Anna couldn't wait to walk down the aisle...

Heading to the church...

A few of Maggie's last single girl pictures!

And we're on our way...
