I don’t think my sister could have asked for a more perfect wedding day. Even though it rained the entire time, she didn’t even flinch and nothing else mattered but marrying Noah with all of us around them. It was a perfect, beautiful, intimate day. I honestly can say that their ceremony was one of the most memorable ceremonies I’ve been to (and not just because I’m her sister!) but it was just gorgeous! It was inside of a heated tent overlooking the water, the music was all acoustic guitar, the songs were incredible, and our pastor, Matt, did an amazing job of preaching the Gospel! Exactly what Jen & Noah had hoped for, I’m sure! It was incredible! Our parents and Noah’s parents came to pray over them…my brother burst into tears he was so moved…and us sisters?! Forget it. We were complete disasters! It was a joyous and wonderful celebration!
And yes, Logan did make it down the aisle. He was a champ. Good thing he doesn’t mind a couple hundred people staring at him. He walked out with my niece Anna and was just kind of staring at his feet. When he got about three rows in, he realized everyone was around him. So he took it all in just looking around. The he smiled and kept walking. He did so great! I think having Anna there with him was the kicker – he just did whatever she did! He looked so handsome in his tux and I just couldn’t believe a little tiny tux was made that fit him like it did. It was adorable. My hubby didn’t look so shabby himself 🙂 and we got some really fun pictures.
Speaking of pictures – Matt, our Pastor, has an incredible wife. You’ve probably heard me mention her before. Noemi! (www.noemiphotography.com) She is one of my dearest friends and an amazing photographer. Matt & Noemi came as a package deal for Jen & Noah’s wedding and she captured the day for them! The pictures are going to be gorgeous! I can’t WAIT to see them! My sister bought us all these really cool umbrellas…and most of us, being ‘up north’ girls, were willing to try anything. Yes, even trudging through the rainy mud and up a hill of logs to get that perfect shot. We were troopers and the photos will totally prove that. I can’t wait to see how Noemi captured Jen & Noah’s love for one another. I know they are going to be breath-taking. Noemi, thank you SO much, again, for honoring all of us by your amazing gift, your willful spirit, your loving nature, and your fun-loving personality. Everyone adored you and can’t stop talking about how great you were! I completely agree and love you so much!
We ended the night with toasts- mine went well, I think, and it felt so wonderful to tell all of our family and friends how much my little sister means to me. She is an absolute sweetheart and I love our relationship so much. I couldn’t be more honored to have been her matron of honor and I definitely didn’t want the weekend to end. To see her so happy….ah, it makes me tear up right now…it was just perfect. You think about your sister getting married for so long. I prayed for her, and for the man she would find to be her spouse, and now she’s married, and to a wonderful man. We are so excited! Now all 5 of us are married, and all of our spouses get a long. We are one big happy, loving family. My cup is fuller and fuller 🙂 I love you, Jen & Noah! And the rest of my family…love you guys to pieces!
I don’t have any pictures yet – but will try to get some soon. I do have some new ones of Mr. Logan. He is hilarious right now. He tries to talk in sentences, usually I can understand him. He loves to close and open things, put things back together, talk into tupperware…yes, I said talk into tupperware. He puts them up to his face and goes ‘ahhhhh’ I think he likes the echo sound. He is really trying to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ they are usually just the same intonations and not the words. For ‘please’ he says ‘pa’ and ‘thank you’ is ‘daaa bu’ in the same tone of voice. He is getting more and more fun everyday!
