FINALLY, they said, "I Do"

My little brother and his beautiful bride were married on May 31, 2014 in front of all their friends and family!

But before that, we spent the day getting our hair and makeup done at a salon. We then headed over to the country club to get dressed and finish getting ready. (The photos below were all taken on my iPhone - hence the bad quality)!
I had my hair done and it was beautiful. But the curls lasted all of about 40 minutes. Boo! I eventually had to just brush them out before I walked down the aisle.
Here were my sister and me before getting changed (can you see that the curls were already out at this point?):
And my mom and me:
And then we got all changed into our dresses:

And the bride and me:
And now for the official wedding photos. My brother hired my sister (Katie Taylor Photography) and her boyfriend (Aw Captures Photography), who both have their own individual photography companies, to do their first official wedding together. They have since created and combined their services into a new business, called AWE CAPTURES PHOTOGRAPHY and have shot another wedding already! They are already scheduling photoshoots, so contact them if you have an event coming up. If you live in the greater Sacramento area, you must have them shoot your next event. They are amazing!! Here is the link to their facebook, if you want to know when they're having specials or deals.

The bride, her mother-in-law, and her aunt getting ready:
 My husband and I were both in the wedding and were matched together going down the aisle and back up. After the wedding, we were able to walk Isabella back down the aisle. The boys were supposed to walk with us, but they only lasted about 5 minutes of the ceremony. Our wonderful friend grabbed our boys and played hide and seek inside during the rest of the ceremony with them - which was AMAZING!!!
All the kids walking down the aisle (photo below taken from iPhone). Aiden and Jake carried the "Here Comes the Bride" sign. Connor escorted Isabella down and she was supposed to drop flower petals down the aisle. Instead, however, she waited until she got the front and then dropped all the petals on the ground in front of the guests. Ha!

The bride and groom:
 I love this one!
 And this one:
 Wasn't the bride's dress breathtaking?
 And her bouquet was equally spectacular:
 They got married at a local country club and these photos are just beautiful. They look like they're in some sort of park.
Our kids with the bride and groom. I'm pretty sure this is one of my favorites! I want to have it framed!
 They told us to act silly and I equate silly with my hand in the air. Obviously. Ha! Apparently half the girls didn't get the silly memo and instead were laughing at the boys.
 All the groomsmen. My brother has known many of these people since grade school! Of course, he's known my dad his whole life.
 Silly groomsmen. Flowers and hands on the hip! Don't you know that putting your hand on your hip makes you look slimmer?!? Duh.
The whole wedding party. Isn't that chandelier amazing?
 All the bridesmaids:
My family. From left to right: My mom, sister, dad, sister-in-law, brother, me, husband, and kids! We are, however, missing my sister's boyfriend in this photo (but someone had to take the photo!).

And my mom and dad:
I am so honored to have my new sister-in-law as an official member of our family!
