(For those of you not interested in seeing wedding photos. You may want to bypass this post)
So, this is the situation. I still have no new pictures of the wedding. I had hoped to get some from others who were there but... (I won't even go into that.) I was having such a wonderful time watching our baby girl and our new son-in-law and enjoying the speeches and just having a fine 'ol time that I just didn't take as many pictures as I should have. Unfortunately for all of you, I was too much in the moment and not enough thought went into the "later" for the blog.
Anyhow, I decided I'll just post the few that I do have.
First, imagine the outdoor setting. The air is warm as you are sitting down in the seats, you are seated under the shade of a huge white tent. You're facing a beautiful lake and listening to the violin soloist, as you wait for the bride who will be walking across the grass with her parents on either side......
This is where everyone was seated. (It was decorated beautifully for the wedding)

Okay, you have to imagine her in her wedding dress at this point.
I wanted you to see the backdrop.
*These will not be in any sort of order. So, here it is. Enjoy.*
First dance as husband & wife.
With her Maid-of-honor & bridesmaids.
Baby-girl and husband!
Looking up at me as I take a picture of her from the upper opening of the barn.
Cake was made by Baby-girls mother-in-law who wanted to do a fancier cake,
but was limited by baby-girl who wanted a simple cake. MIL's concession...
The grasshopper on the cake! Lovely! Well done MIL!
First meal together as husband & wife.
Father of the bride speech.
The back of her dress.
Baby-girl, all grown up!
Wouldn't this make a great Coke ad?
Husband & wife

And there it is. The photographer took TONS of pictures but as yet I have not had a chance to see them. Hopefully, they'll be up soon.
The evening of the wedding turned out to be very nice in the area of Kansas City that we were in. Through out the evening of dancing and festivities out side, you could look up and all around us, you could see constant flashes of lightning. It was truly spectacular! The rain eventually came around 11:30 p.m.
My apologies for the photo heavy post. Although I feel I don't have very many pictures of the wedding day. I certainly had enough to show you the gist of Baby-girls special day. I would have liked to have posted some better photo's of the two of them. But, the ones I have show them enjoying themselves. And when I see them, I'm happy.
Thanks for viewing our special day! Have a great one!
