Family weddings are a thrilling, exciting, exhausting adventure. This past week brought all of John's family into our home as his sister Rachel prepared to get married this past Friday. As with any major family event, it had its share of drama, but the wedding itself turned out beautifully, and Rachel and Mike are married and celebrating in the Bahamas!
Lily and Bella were official flower girls, and I got V a matching dress. William wore a suit, though he was not down for a group picture.
Love this shot of the Spenst men.
The wedding was held at St. John's Chapel by the Creek in Bryant, which was a gorgeous venue, and the weather was stunning. A perfect late spring day!
I got pretty random pictures from the event mostly including my children. I somehow failed to get any of my Mother-in-law, who looked beautiful, or any of the groom straight on. Also, not pictured in this blog post is my brother-in-law, which is a shame, because he was my child wrangling buddy. The ceremony itself was quite brief, which I was thankful for. I did not get to see most of it, because I had to take the incredibly loud twins out. The acoustics of the tiny chapel made every noise that they made echo, and we lasted less than 5 minutes inside. The girls did perform their duties beautifully, however!
And then they were married!
I did manage to get a picture of John and I all dolled up. I used Rent The Runway for my dress and loved the dress and service! I will definitely use them again.
The reception was on the same property, and it was truly a lovely day to be outside. Dinner was served, and my children pretty much enjoyed running all over the place.
We walked down to the bridge to light sparklers and send them on their way!
And then it was over.
And we are still tired from it all.
Congratulations, Mike and Rachel! We hope and pray that God blesses your marriage!
