Wedding Weekend

Last Saturday, Steve and I got married in a very small wedding at his parents' house. My girlfriends Peg & Marilee and I shared some pre-ceremony giggles before it began:

Chad (Steve's brother) and his friend Merle looked ready to go:

I'm not sure what the nephews and nieces were ready for here:

His brother-in-law Dan sang the opening and closing songs. He sounded fantastic:

Steve and I listened intently to the pastor:

And then to his nephew Greg's two readings:

His niece Sammi performed "The Wedding Song" beautifully:

And before we knew it, the service was over and Pastor Dan turned us around to face the audience:

When it was time for pictures, Steve posed in between his dad and brother:

This is my mini mommy, who makes me feel like an Amazon woman (LOL!):

I didn't realize the wedding party was conveniently arranged by height until I saw this photo:

Once the papers were signed, it was official:

Cheers! A toast to happiness:

And to laughter (which Sammi wholeheartedly endorsed):

Yeah, you could say she's a goofball (just like Uncle Steve, hmm?!):

Of course, we had to take the obligatory "wedding rings on hands" shot:

And said goofball decided to ham it up even more:

At the restaurant, Steve's brother-in-law Erik and Greg did their best imitations of Inspector Clouseau:

Hey, aren't you supposed to cut the cake before you eat it:

At least Sammi was still around to stop the madness (or maybe add to it?):

For our honeymoon, we'll be doing the Stamping by the Sea convention together! But, first, I'm heading out tomorrow for the Great Lakes Mega Meet and then to the SSAT show in Southfield the following week. (I'm just joking about the honeymoon, by the way. Steve will indeed be joining me in Ocean City, but we're planning to take a REAL honeymoon in November or December.)

If you'll be at the Novi show this week, remember to stop by the Inky booth and mention the secret phrase "Daisy Kit" to receive this little goodie for free!

Thanks for sharing the pics & by the time you got done naming all the relatives, it didn't seem like a "small" wedding. It looks just perfect!
