Trying to get back to normal...

Aside from everything else that has been going on I feel like the rest of our lives have totally gotten sidetracked so I am trying to play catch up on everything else that has been going on besides all my medical problems. So first things first, back at the end of June before Jake had moved here my mom & I came down to Houston for my cousin Hannah's wedding that I was a bridesmaid in and unfortunately Jake couldn't get off work so he had to stay in Abilene for work. It was really great to go spend the week with family and everything, I enjoyed hanging out with my sister for the week, we got to do some fun baby shopping and brainstorming for the new little one that will be here before we know it and this Aunt Giji CANNOT WAIT!! Here is the wedding week in pictures, some might be a little bit out of order, so sorry!

"The Sisterhood Ring" from James Avery: a year or two ago the women in our family started this tradition of buying their "sisters" when their birthday rolled around this beautiful sterling silver ring that is called the sisterhood ring and has a great story behind it. I actually got my sister her ring for her birthday this past April, her hand is the second one from the left I think.

The Bride's Wedding cake...the is the first family wedding we have had that I can remember where my mom & Aunt Beth didn't do the wedding cakes so that was a little weird for me to experience. But this cake was cute and everyone said that it tasted great, I of course didn't have any.

And this was the groom's cake, very different and interesting, all chocolate, with chocolate covered cheeries, and with the couple's favorite on top, Dr. Pepper.

The cute candy bar they had at the reception, it was displayed very cute with lots of different candies to choose from and cute little vases with the gerber daisies in them. The candy bar was enjoyed ALOT by all the little kids at the wedding/reception they really loved it!

Here is a picture of one of the tables, with one of the two different centerpieces that were used at the reception. The wedding colors were orange, yellow, and white so the tables had white table cloths with orange organza overlays with a cute swirly design on them. They used two different centerpieces, this one on this table was tall, square vases with lemons and limes all in the bottom with gerber daisies, belles of ireland, and some stock all coming out of the top of the vase. Also at each place setting were the ceremony program and the wedding favors that were individual boxes with a gerber daisy on the top that had a heart shaped brownie inside for each guest to take home.

Here is a picture of the other centerpiece that was used on the rest of the tables, they were cinderella carriages painted white all filled with flowers- gerber daisies, orange roses, stock, greenery, and belles of ireland.

This is a picture of the arrangements that were at the front of the ceremony, they were just tall iron displays filled with the gerber daisies, greenery, belles of ireland, roses, and stock.

Here is another view of the centerpieces and tables and chairs at the ceremony/reception.

Here is one of the welcome tables you saw you walked in, it was filled with candles, a few little vases that had orange and yellow gerber daisies in them, and a couple of Hannah & Justin's engagement photos.

This is a picture of the sign in table with their guest book and two of their engagement pictures.

Here is just a picture of one of the little flower arrangement of roses, gerber daisies, stock, and greenery on one of the front tables when you walked in.

Here is a picture of how everything looked with the tables and chairs and centerpieces and everything all set up.
