Going to the Chapel

I'm still trying to catch up on some of
the things we did over the holidays.

One of the biggest
things on our agenda was
seeing our sweet Kerri get married!

We have watched Kerri grow up and were
so excited to celebrate this next step in her life.

A few friends threw her a bridesmaids luncheon
the day before her wedding at a local little lunch spot.

The Brides' mother had boat totes
for all of the girls filled with
little treats for the big day.

Here's a photo of Kerri and her girls.
Three of these girls have know Kerri, literally, her entire life.

We had a charm cake for all of her bridesmaids
and Kerri picked out charms that had special meanings
for the ladies in her bridal party.

The girls all pulled their charms
and were then given a card with the meaning of the charm
and a happy wish for each of the ladies.

Each of the girls listening to the meanings of the charms...

And last, but not least, Kerri's Momma had bought
her a charm as well.  Kerri's Momma started her
a charm bracelet when she was about 16 and has 
filled it with many milestones and happy memories over
the years.  This charm was a wedding cake.

The next night I tried to dress up my crew and make them act
right for the night!  Here is Jackson all dressed up...

Mom and Dad ready for a celebration.

Nana and her first grandson...he's taller than she is now...
she's wearing heels...he's not!

And this was the best we could get of the four of us...
Jackson just would not cooperate!
Getting a 4 year old to small without saying "cheese"
and having a cheesy smile, is almost impossible!

  1. Hey there, young lady! Thanks for stopping by! I've been on a hiatus of sorts for the last couple of weeks, trying to get a little rest and relaxation before my next classes start up, but yesterday kind of ruined that whole thing! Wow...what a beautiful bride and a beautiful way to celebrate her ladies-in-waiting!!! I love those personalized canvas bags, and the charms were such a fabulous idea!!! I remember those as a staple back in "the old days" for a bridesmaids' luncheon. Your family photo is priceless! Jackson will look back on this and have a good laugh...and so will you! Happy New Year to you and your family!
